Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger December 2011 Signup

Guess what? Adopt a gluten-free blogger is home after two months hosted by my friends. I hope you enjoyed their roundups (November roundup at Meat-free Wheat-free) and (October roundup at As Good as Gluten). Thank goodness they helped me out because things have been crazy here with winter bugs and dissertation madness. However, I’m back just in time for you to try out some new recipes for Christmas!

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!

  1. I have a new website, that I am trying to spread the word about! I love yours! I am having huge giveaways from many wonderful gluten free companies soon and was wondering if you would help me get the word out?! Thanks!

  2. I would like to adopt Kalinda from Wheat Free, Meat Free. Paula Decaria, from Live Free, Gluten Free.

  3. Hi, I’d love to “adopt” As Good As Gluten, I’ve made a couple of her recipes and have one ready to make next week. I’m new to the gluten free world but have been blogging for about 2 years. I just started my new way of eating and making recipes and I’m still learning! My recipes are now mainly gluten free but I’m still working on getting all my past recipes “tagged” gluten free. I have most from this year tagged correctly and many of them can be easily changed.

  4. I have no idea if you got my last comment, sometimes they go into the spam filter. Anyways, I put the wrong name of the blog that I wanted to adopt, it is supposed to be Easy to be Gluten Free. Thanks!

  5. What a fantastic idea!!

  6. I’m late, but I’d like to adopt Stacy and Matt at Paleo Parents (

    Thanks, Sea! Happy New Year! :-)

  7. I adopted Kalinda and made her Vegetarian Chicken Salad…so delicious and easy! Here’s my post about it:

  8. Thanks, Sea!!! I hope you have a really happy New Year. I am going to sit this month out with the start of The Balanced Platter, but will enthusiastically adopt a blogger next month.

  9. Can I still join?? I’d love to make something from bill and Haley at paleo comfort foods!

  10. Hi. A close friend of mine introduced me to your site, I am new to the internet and my blog is only days old, but I do want to comment that this is a really cool idea, and if I get the chance later, in a couple of months, I would like to try this out. It would be cool if you could post a link to my new blog, It is still small, but I plan on working on it all month. After that I will have more time to try out extra recipes from other blogs as well. So Cool.

  11. Is it too late to enter? I will have the post done by 9th Jan :)
