Adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger-Event: Gluten-Free Lunchbox Tiffin Bento Recipes

Some time ago, I started an event to help the gluten-free community get to know each other a little better. This event, the “adopt a gluten-free blogger” event, allows bloggers to adopt one of their favorite gluten-free blogger and then blog about one of their recipes that they have tried. Participants send in the URL of their post and a photo of the food they created (but don’t post the recipe of the adopted blogger- just link to it in their post) and then I or other hosts post a roundup of the recipes. It has been a great way to try some new recipes and introduce new gluten-free bloggers to our readers! However, recently participation has dropped a little, so I think it might be time to shake things up a bit and make this event even more fun (and useful for readers).

I’d like to open the first ever Adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger Event with a THEME!

For the September edition of our event, please find a recipe perfect for a gluten-free lunchbox (or tiffin, or bento) posted by a gluten-free blogger. This blogger should either only post gluten-free recipes OR have an easy organizational structure that allows readers to sort by gluten-free recipes. Try the recipe as posted (to the best of your ability) and take a picture of it (in a lunchbox/tiffin/ bento if possible) and write a post about the blogger and your experience with the recipe. Write your post between September 26- October 13. Then email the picture along with the URL of THEIR post (the one with the recipe) and the URL of YOUR post (without recipe is better) TO: Seamaiden399(at)gmail(dot)com. Then when I do a roundup, we’ll have a list of gluten-free lunchbox recipes perfect for back-to-school or back-to-work lunches! The more participants we have, the better for creating a really useful list of lunch time resources!

Another way I’d like to tweak this event would be to have sign ups for various PARTS of the lunch.
To participate, please comment below with your name, blog name, and the blogger you’d like to adopt AS WELL AS one of the following categories:

Carb (may contain protein)

If you don’t have a blog- don’t worry! You can still participate. Just email me your digital picture of the finished dish, the name of the dish and the URL where the recipe was originally posted. You are also welcome to share your experience with the recipe- just add it to your email or comment (including the above information.)

To start us off, I’d like to adopt Asparagus thin in the Dessert category.

Adoption List:
1) Asparagus Thin- adopted by Sea of the Book of Yum- Lunchtime Dessert
2) Kalyn’s Kitchen- adopted by Cheryl of Gluten-Free Goodness- Lunchtime Salad
3)Carrie from Ginger Lemon Girl- adopted by Emily of glutenfreeexpedition- Lunchtime dessert
4) Susan of the Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen- adopted by Rachel of The Crispy Cook- Lunchtime Carb

  2. Sea, can I adopt Kalyn? I think her salads are the only thing that I wouldn’t have to heavily modify for allergies and would go in a lunchbox. But she doesn’t have a gf tag, so I don’t know if that counts.

  3. Hi Sea – For my first time adopting, I would like to adopt Carrie from Ginger Lemon Girl in the dessert category. Thanks!

  4. Hi Cheryl, Sure thing- in fact, she just posted a gluten-free recipe. Gotta love that. Maybe in the future she’ll add a GF tag. :D

    Hi Emily, Wonderful! I’m so glad you decided to join us and I can’t wait to see what lunchbox dessert goodie you pick from Carrie’s lovely blog.
