Just a quick note to let everyone know that I have finally added a Recipe Index to my site (on the menu bar). Now you can quickly find gluten-free recipes on my site by category.
Last week, I was honored to be tagged as “One Lovely Blog” by Cheryl at GF Goodness. I have plans to compile a complete list of gluten-free blogs to share with readers, but I haven’t gotten very far with it, yet. So, I thought this was a perfect opportunity to share with you some of the blogs I enjoy reading. This is not an exhaustive list. There are a lot of great blogs out there that focus on the gluten-free diet. Here are some of my favorites:
Book of Yum – Sea creates wonderfully diverse vegetarian recipes. Her gluten-free recipes often include spices and flavors common in cooking in other parts of the world: Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, etc. She also organizes Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger, a blog carnival to encourage bloggers to try each other’s recipes.
Celiacs in the House – I always look forward to hearing about Wendy’s adventures, either in the kitchen, at the farmer’s market, or around town. She has some great gluten-free recipes and product reviews to share.
Flour Arrangements – Sophie has a lovely website with lots of big, beautiful pictures of her gluten-free creations. Makes me drool every time.
Gluten Free Taste of Home – Visit this blog if you’re looking for gluten-free comfort food. Cinde is re-creating all of her favorite vegetarian recipes to be gluten-free.
Gluten-Free Girl – A beautiful writer, Shauna, has been sharing her gluten-free recipes and stories with us for years. We’ve read about her diagnosis, her marriage, and now the birth of her daughter. Her stories often amuse, encourage, and celebrate her gluten-free life. And why not? It’s a healthy way to live.
I’m an Organizing Junkie – What more is there to say. Laura speaks to my inner desire to be organized. It all starts with Menu Plan Monday, a great way to get your week started off right! (This website does not focus on the gluten-free diet, however many people contribute gluten-free menus to Menu Plan Monday.)
Karina’s Kitchen – A lovely writer with beautiful pictures of her scrumptious foods. Karina creates gluten-free recipes that are frequently also free of other common food allergens (dairy, egg and soy). Vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free/casein-free recipes.
Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free – Amy always has an uplifting message to share along with her wonderful sugar-free and gluten-free recipes. She is also starting a new blog carnival next week called Slightly Indulgent Mondays.
Sure Foods Living – Alison provides lots of useful information to help others live healthy, gluten-free and allergy-free lives.
The Gluten-Free Homemaker – Every week, Linda hosts a great weekly blog carnival for sharing gluten-free recipes: “What Can I Eat That’s Gluten-Free.” She shows us that making gluten-free meals doesn’t have to be difficult.
The Sensitive Pantry – Nancy has a beautiful blog where she shares her delicious recipes, which avoid gluten, dairy and egg.
The W.H.O.L.E. Gang – Through her Friday Foodie Fix blog carnival, Diane provides recipes and detailed information about the benefits and nutritional qualities of specific foods. She’s an inspiration for trying new foods.
From our family to yours, hope you have a wonderful Easter.
I was tagged by MarylandCeliac at Gluten-Free Optimist to reveal “Seven Things You May Not Know About Me.” The rules are simple. Link to your original tagger and list these rules in your post. Simply share seven facts about yourself in the post. Tag seven people at the end of your post and let them know they’ve been tagged. And have fun! So, here it goes:
- I love the smell of freshly brewed coffee, but hate the taste. Hot Chocolate or tea for me, please.
- I am a chocoholic. I love everything chocolate, and always have some in the house. Dark chocolate is best, of course.
- As I was starting the gluten-free diet, the first gluten-free recipe I had to find was for chocolate chip cookies. When making a big lifestyle change, you’ve got to have some comfort food, right?
- I’m an Air Force brat and wife. I’ve had a lot of practice of adapting to change.
- I graduated from the University of Nebraska (Go Big Red!) with majors in Advertising and Consumer Science. I worked in advertising and marketing for 10 years before my children were born.
- I don’t have any food allergies (that I know of), but took allergy shots for several years for various allergies to Mother Nature.
- When my son was diagnosed with Celiac Disease, I hoped I had finally found the answer to my own lactose intolerance and IBS symptoms. I’m better on a gluten-free diet, but still have to limit my lactose and still have the occasional flare up.
Since I just got started with twitter, I thought this would be a good way to get to know people I follow and who follow me on twitter. Here are the seven people I am tagging.
