Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: August

event3b.jpgIf you’ve been thinking it’s about time for the next installment of adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger… you’d be right! Cheryl was kind enough to host the event last month while I was doing research in Northern Japan, and hopefully you saw her wonderful roundup of gluten-free blogger adoption posts. If you’d like to be in on the fun and host a future adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger-event, comment with the month you’d like to host and I’ll add you to the list at the adoption headquarters.

I’ve really enjoyed the chance to make some of my fellow GF bloggers’ delightful recipes. So far I’ve made Pig in the Kitchen’s veggie burgers and rolls, Naomi’s pita bread, Kate’s sandwich wrap, Accidental Veg Naomi’s french bread and zucchini, and Karina’s Vegan Mac N’ Cheese, and I enjoyed each and every dish. If you haven’t participated before in our event, there’s no time like the present.

To participate, please sign up in the comments with your name (or pen name), the name of your blog, and the name and blog name of your adopted blogger! Then just write a post about your adopted blogger between August 25 – Sep 8, having tried one of their recipes and blogged about it. Please follow your chosen blogger’s recipe as printed, making only minor changes for reasons of allergy or veg/non-veg diet. . I think it’s probably best to just link to your adopted blogger’s recipe rather than posting it in your blog. Don’t forget to link back to this blog event in your post, and after you post, EMAIL Me at seamaiden399[at]gmail[dot]com with the URL for your post and an attached PHOTO that you took of the food (very important if you want to be included in the round up!) Here’s my proposed adoption for this month, to start the ball rolling.

I’m Seamaiden, at the Book of Yum, and I’d like to “adopt” La Tartine Gourmand this month because… her food styling makes me swoon and I’m dying to try one of her tasty and beautiful gluten-free tart recipes!

Now I’ve “adopted” La Tartine Gourmand for this month, and so other bloggers *sniff* can’t “adopt” her THIS MONTH. (But next month her blog is fair game!) I will write a post sometime in the next two weeks (Deadline: Sep 8) about her blog, and a recipe that I tried recently.

I’ll keep a running list of bloggers that have been adopted at the bottom of this list. If we get repeats, the blogger who posted their claim earliest “gets” the blogger, and I’ll contact any bloggers who need to pick a new blog. (This is so we can discover the maximum number of GF bloggers and recipes!)

Once you adopt a blogger, you have until the event end date (2 weeks from opening of event- this month until Sep 8th to try a recipe and blog about blogger and their recipe.

*To be eligible, your blogger must either be a gluten-free blogger OR consistently blog gluten-free recipes with a gluten-free tag for recipes that makes them easy to find. New GF bloggers would be terrific candidates for “adoption.” Recipe must be GF as written by the original poster.*

We have no one signed up to host next month’s event. If you’d like to host next month, please email me or post in comments. :)

*You don’t have to host recipes at your site to ADOPT someone and blog about their recipes. Also, for those who are adopted- don’t worry! You don’t have to reciprocate and adopt anyone (not even the person who adopted you) unless you want to.. :) It would almost be more fun if people Didn’t automatically adopt the person who adopted them- to maximize the new blogs you get exposed to!
