Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger Recipe Roundup Jan 2011

Oh my! I’m afraid time got away from me yet again when it came to doing the Adopt a gluten-free blogger roundup. I had some deadlines with school bits and ended up doing a guest lecture gig doing a virtual class for gifted kids on Japanese Religion. And then the dear Baby Yum came down with the stomach flu, shortly followed by the DH coming down with it. I’m afraid I might be next, and then maybe the dear Book of Yum cat for good measure, because life is too quiet and restful around here. Thank goodness the wonderful Lexie of Lexie’s Kitchen offered to host the February Edition of Adopt a Gluten-free Blogger. You can sign up at her site now! This month saw a wonderful turnout yet again, with some impressively prolific bloggers adopting not one but two bloggers, and making an entire cookbook worth of recipes, practically. We also saw our first truly international adoption from a young French-Canadian woman who introduced us to a wonderful French gluten-free blogger. It reminds me why I love this event, all over again. And without further ado, here are the recipes and bloggers that were featured this month!

Kelly the Spunky Coconut adopted Karina the Gluten-free Goddess and made her hot artichoke dip.

Michelle of Gluten-free Smiles adopted Simply Sugar and Gluten Free and made Turkey Burgers with Buttermilk Ranch Dressing, Pumpkin Dog Biscuits, and Perfect Bread. That bread really does look perfect!

Maggie of She Let them Eat Cake adopted Alta of Tasty Eats at Home and made three recipes, including her favorite recipe for a Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Cheesecake.

Zoe of Z’s Cup of Tea adopted Carrie the Ginger Lemon Girl and made her Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Nisrine of Dinners and Dreams adopted Lauren the Celiac Teen and made her Gluten-Free Quinoa Flake Waffles into Pancakes due to a little last-minute mishap with the waffle maker. Oops! I know how that goes!

Diane of the Whole Gang adopted Wendy of Celiacs in the House.

Tia of Glugle Gluten-free adopted Kim of Cook it Allergy Free and made her Allergy Friendly Kale, Cabbage, Bean, and Sausage Soup.

I was tickled pink to get an email from the adorable 15 year old gluten-free French-Canadian girl Lulu, who asked if it was all right if she adopted another French blogger. Of course, I said “Oui,” and only requested that she give us the name of the recipe she made translated into English. The wonderful Lulu did more than that- she translated her entire post into English for us. I hope you will visit her post and make her feel welcome! Lulu adopted Perrine from “On mange sans gluten” and made Gluten-free whole grain rolls. C’est merveilleux!

Iris from the Daily Diatribe adopted Carol of Simply Gluten Free.

I adopted Stephanie at Wasabimon and made her Rosewater and Vanilla Macaron, her quinoa curry salad and her baked falafel.

Shirley of Gluten-free Easily adopted Zoe, Z’s Cup of Tea, and made her gluten-free smores. She made Zoe’s Spur of the Moment Chocolate Cookies, and had initially planned on making her own honey-sweetened marshmallows, but life intervened and she ended up using store bought. Although Shirley thought her execution of the recipe was a disaster, I think these smores look positively divine and she can bring some over to my house any time! Read the post for the whole story, as well as a fun cranky Maxine vs. Martha Stewart showdown and a sneak peek at the latest hot camping gadget- a marshmallow “tree”!

Like the super-heroine she is, Shirley also adopted Desi Domo at The Palate Peacemaker and made her Spiced Pecan Butter and attempted to make her Pumpkin Pecan HoHos. The HoHo’s turned into Pumpkin Bundt Cake. I can’t wait to read the story!

Valerie of City-life-eats adopted Kelly of The Spunky Coconut and made three recipes that are on Kelly’s blog:
Pineapple & Coconut Quinoa, a Vanilla Shake, and Quinoa Almond Muffins. Valerie also made several recipes from Kelly’s book, which she had won as part of Gluten-Free Holiday last year: Creamy Bean Dip, Funa (Fake tuna
salad), and Chicken Meatballs because her husband really really wanted to try them.

Valerie of City-life-eats made my day with a second adoption in which she adopted Naomi of Straight Into Bed Cakefree and Dried and made her Carrotslaw, GF/SCD/Low Salicylate Pizza with Nomato sauce, and Raspberry tea-bread. Valerie does not follow a low salicylate diet, but she has been eating more grain-free foods recently and so was curious to try Naomi’s recipe. She found it to be really delicious! Yay!

Stretching My Imagination adopted Ellen from Gluten Free Diva and made her Asian Twist Tofu, Curried Tofu “Eggless” Salad, and Cranberry-Ginger Muffins.

Alta of tasty eats at home adopted Carrie of Ginger Lemon Girl and made two of Carrie’s recipes – her vegan crusty bread and her pizza crust. Both were reportedly very tasty. I know I’m craving pizza after seeing Alta’s photo!
