Adopt a gluten-free Blogger Signup March 2011

Last month was a crazy one, and so I was thrilled when Alexa of Lexie’s Kitchen offered to host Adopt-a-gluten-free-blogger for us. I hope you will visit her wonderful Round-up here. She shares photos, 30+ recipes, and a “bite” from 22 adoption posts. I could just hug her for lending a helping hand with the roundup. Please let me know if you’d like to help host; you just might help me keep my sanity!

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.

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 March 26 (loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)
Post your Review and Email me by April 5 (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 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 will create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

  29. [...] Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger is a fun monthly event that gives me an opportunity to really get to know a blogger and her recipes well.  Since April in the Raw and My Raw Challenge were quickly approaching, I knew that Leanne of Healthful Pursuit was the perfect blogger for me to adopt.  I had admired several of her raw dessert recipes in the past, because they looked so delicious that it was hard to believe they were actually healthy (or raw, for that matter).  I had also made Leanne’s Runners’ Repair Cookies for the Husband for Valentine’s Day.  (Yes, in our house, recovery cookies are romantic.)
