Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger
This event is the brain-child of Sea Maiden at Book of Yum. She’s in Japan right now working on her dissertation while still being mom to a preschooler. She’s busy. Very busy. Several of us offered to host during the summer months.
I love reading through these posts because I’m introduced to bloggers I hadn’t had the pleasure of meeting before and I get to read about what others have made for the event and enjoyed.
The dips that Valerie from City-Life-Eats made from Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen both look delicious. When Valerie says the Creamy Herb Sunflower Dip Dressing has a mouth-feel that reminds her of cream, she’s speaking to me. I have to give it a try.
The Caramel Dip for Apples just sounds like fun. I’ll have to give it a try when the fall crop of apples starts coming in.
Rachel from The Crispy Cook also made two recipes, these from the low-carb, gluten-free blog of an opera singer - Until The Thin Lady Sings. Blueberry Lemon Bars with stevia are a great combination of flavors and, with no sugar, I may have to give them a try.
The other recipe she made is Coconut Flour Cheese Biscuits. I’ve made a similar biscuit before but not with all of the seasoning that this one has. It should be a show-stopper.
Dawn from Cuter Than Gluten made Gluten-Free Easily’s Coconut Blueberry Pound Cupcakes then turned them into Cookie Monster cupcakes with her own frosting on top. They’re adorable and Dawn says the taste of the cupcakes truly is like pound cake.
Heather from Gluten-Free Cat adopted Hunter’s Lyonesse and made some cookies that I put on my must make list as soon as I saw them. Grain-Free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free, these Flourless Pumpkin Pie Cookies will be a great addition to my list of recipes this fall when pumpkins seem to be for sale on every corner.
The maple syrup and cinnamon in the Cashew Summer Granola she also made gave it nice a pop of flavor.
Sunny of And Love It Too made Diet, Dessert and Dogs’ Easy No-Cook, Grain-Free Breakfast Porridge and says it reminds her of Cream of Wheat. I have to try this. No-cook and grain-free makes the recipe defy logic but I love the ingredients in it and it looks – and Sunny tells us is - delicious.
The Watermelon-Basil Cooler Sunny also made is a great – and refreshing - choice now that there’s an abundance of watermelons that are now in stores and soon will be in farmer’s markets in our area. (I haven’t seen any yet.)
I wrote about Alta from Tasty Eats at Home. With all of the fresh peaches available right now, I felt compelled to try a couple of her peach recipes. (She has more.)
I think of scones as a good breakfast food and her Peach Macadamia Scones definitely fit that description. Moist and soft like a big cookie, they were a treat. (Who doesn’t think a big cookie for breakfast is a good thing?) As a matter of fact, I froze some and had them with my breakfast this morning. My husband, a huge fan of peaches, has particularly enjoyed her Creamy Peach Popsicles. Picture a luscious frozen peach with a hint of creaminess and you have these popsicles.
Thanks to all who joined in! Want to be part of it next time? Bloggers and non-bloggers alike should check out July’s event which will be hosted by Sunny at And Love It Too. August will be hosted by Alta from Tasty Eats at Home.
