Adopt a gluten-free blogger March 2011 Roundup

This month we had a lovely turnout. I have to admit I’m getting rather spoiled by all these wonderful adoption months. I fear my participants are about to fire me as hostess, however. I don’t mind telling you that this month was pretty stressful over at the House of Yum. I got an interesting gig for my other life as a Religious Studies academic indexing a 500 page translation on Lord Nobunaga. There were about 70 pages of index alone and it took me three straight weeks of living, breathing, and eating Nobunaga to finish the project. (The eating part was basically Amy’s frozen meals, and lots of gluten-free burritos. Oh, the shame.) My DH said every time he saw me the could hear a little war-chant of Nobunaga-Nobunaga-Nobunaga transmitted from my subconscious. It got so bad I was literally dreaming about indexing. However. I finally finished, just in time to fulfill my obligation to the “April in the Raw Event.” I made some lovely nut-based dairy-free raw cheesecakes, but was so exhausted from it I had to take a little time off to recover. That and Baby Yum was clamoring for time with Mama- almost as much as I was clamoring for quality time with my baby! I always try to have the roundup done before the 15th of the month so I can start the next session around the 15th, but it just didn’t happen this time. My apologies to those of you who had to wait… but I think these month’s entries were well worth the wait! I hope you enjoy these fabulous adoptions and are inspired to try at least half of the recipes. Ok, ok, that isn’t realistic? All right. How about you try one recipe and report back to us? Or better yet, sign up to adopt your own gluten-free blogger for the April 2011 edition. I’ll open the event on the 20th, so see you then!

  1. All I want to know is, do I get my own room? ;)

    Great roundup. So much fabulous information out there these days. Keep up the great work, everyone!

    Warm regards,

  2. Simply stunning and fantastic to say the least! I dream of one day when we could actually all get together and eat these adoption recipes. What delicious fun that would be!

    Glad you finished that indexing project, Sea. That sounds 100 million times harder than blogging! Enjoy the baby and hubby once again and come back when you’re refreshed more. ;-)

    Okay, now I must go eat something after seeing all those amazing entries …

    But now I have a blog, and I want to share.

    Although I am rather new to the idea of adopting a gluten free blogger, I REALLY want to do it this month, simply to meet and greet others participating.

    So please, please, please, let me know when the next one comes up. :)
