Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger April 2011 Signups + Mini Roundup

Hello Dear Readers,
Last months’ entries for Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger were gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Let’s make this month equally gorgeous and adopt your very own Gluten-free Blogger. I can’t wait to see what delicious gluten-free recipes you make!

Here’s how you participate.

1) Pick a gluten-free blogger whose recipes you admire and adopt them by commenting on this post with your name, blog name and their name and blog name.

*Blogger’s recipes must all be gluten-free or have a way to sort and read ONLY gluten-free recipes
*Please pick a different blogger every time you participate
*Please pick a blogger that has not been adopted yet this month!

2) Pick one (or two!) of your gluten-free blogger’s recipes to try.

3) Make the recipe, photograph it and write a post in your blog introducing the blogger and their recipe.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible. And, please don’t print their recipe on your post- just provide your reader a link to their original recipe.
*Provide a link to this event announcement page

4) Email me at adoptaglutenfreeblogger[at]gmail[dot]com with your photo of the recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe and the URL of the original blogger’s recipe post. PLEASE SIZE PHOTO TO BE A MAXIMUM OF 500 pixels wide. Otherwise I will have to resize it manually and after the first one or two I start to cry sad tears of weary despair. You don’t want me crying while I post, do you?

5) Post YOUR POST’s URL in a comment to this post, and if possible please try to visit two other blogger’s posts that are posted here (and comment!).

*The goal is to make this event more interactive and fun!

Sign up BEFORE April 30(loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by May 10 (firm deadline, no foolin’)

If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to adopt a gluten-free blogger. Sign up to adopt a blogger, write a review of one of their recipes, including your name (or pen name), the recipe URL and recipe title. Then take a photo of the completed recipe (if you can) and EMAIL ME the review and photo. I will create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

I’ll start the adoptions by adopting Kelly of Spunky Coconut. Now it is your turn!

We had a few entries that came to my other email inbox and/or were posted in comments. I didn’t want to leave anyone out, so I thought I’d do a “Part Two” March 2011 Roundup here. These entries were also added to the original March 2011 Roundup, but images were not included in the big collage.

Nicole the G-Free Mom adopted Silvana Nardone and made a donut recipe from her cookbook.

Alisa of Go Dairy Free adopted Katie of Making Food and Other Stuff and made her savory Pumpkin Sauce and Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge.
