Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger: Holiday Celebration Theme

Hello all!

*Edited on 1/2: We’ve had a serious cold/ flu in our household since Christmas, and have spent the last few days in bed sick, so I’m afraid there was a delay getting my post up. I also only took my new computer on vacation to the in-laws, and it didn’t have the password to get into my site, so I wasn’t able to see recent posts until today. I’ll try to get my post up in the next few days and do a roundup asap.*

I’m proud to say that Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger is back home at the Book of Yum after months under the care of some very dear bloggers who helped out while I was in Japan and busy with my dissertation.

I’d like to announce a twist this month, since I am a bit late getting this post up. First, let’s do a themed Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger and select a Holiday Celebration Recipe to try by your favorite blogger! You can pick any recipe that you’d like to see on a holiday dinner table. I’d like recipes to be available for the Holiday season for you all, so please post the link to your post on this post as soon as you get it up. I still need you to email me a photo and link to other blogger’s recipe(s) and link to your post. I’ll add links to your post and recipe (with photo if you send it) to THIS POST as I receive them.

Participation is simple.

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

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.

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.

*Note: This is a new email set up just for this event. Hopefully this will make it easier to keep track of entries. If you have general questions, please don’t email me at this address but post them here so everyone can read the question (and answer). Companies are NOT welcome to email me at this address, unless a representative is planning to adopt a blogger and write about it. ;)

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 December 20 (loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by January 4 (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 Gluten-free 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’ll create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

I’ll start the adoptions by adopting Cybele Pascal at the blog of the same name and cookbook author of The Allergen-Free Baker’s Handbook and Allergy-Free and Easy Cooking: 30-Minute Meals without Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Eggs, Soy, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish, Shellfish, and Sesame

Adoption Sign-Up Sheet:
1) Cybele Pascal the Allergy-free Blogger Adopted by Sea of Book of Yum
2) You Pick!

If you sign up and cannot complete this event by Jan 1st for any reason, please email me immediately at adoptaglutenfreeblogger[at]gmail[dot]com and let me know. Please ONLY use this email account for Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger relevant emails.

  1. I’d like to adopt Shirley from Gluten Free Easily.

  2. Hi Sea!

    It has been a crazy month around here but I have a blogger I have already ‘adopted’ for the month and would love to do a blog post over.

    If Shirley Braden from GFE is not available, I’d love to do Heather the GF Cat.

    Either way, I appreciate you hosting this month! xoxo

  3. Sea, I thought I commented weeks ago, and hope I can still adopt Kate of Eat, Recycle, Repeat.
