GFE Giveaway Winners for This Past Week

Here are the winners from the last several giveaways on gfe! (Note that some of the winners have already been notified and the applicable posts updated.) As always, I appreciate all the gfe readers who took the time to enter the giveaway by sharing their comments and spreading the word on these posts.

raw, vegan, gluten free, hail merry treats

The winners of the Hail Merry snacks are:

~ Vegyogini (Hugger Food) “I’d love to try the Orange Cranberry Granola! Thanks for the giveaway!”

~ Rita: 
“I hope these products come to my area. I want to try them all but if I could have only one, those coconut macaroons have called me by name.”

~ Beverly: 
“I couldnt decide between the choco macaroons or pecans…yum!”

Columbus Foods, Salame, Salami, Salumi

The winners of the Columbus Salame are:

Stacy (Paleo Parents) ~ “On the rare occasion my boys keep salami in the house long enough for me to eat it, I like to snack on it with an orange or clementine. The flavors work perfectly together!”

denise mallett ~ “As a child I was introduced to hard salami sitting on the back porch swing with cousins. My uncle had a full stick of hard salami, slicing pieces for us all to enjoy. I have eaten it this way since, for 52 years now. I purchase a good quality salami every two weeks, I eat it mostly by the slice, on gluten free pizza, with goat milk cheese or as salami sandwiches. My mouth was watering gazing at your wonderful picture of salami’s teasing my tastebuds.”

Janet Lewis ~ “I love salami with a cracker!”

Honeyville almond flour, blanched almond flour

The winner of the 5-lb bag of Honeyville Blanched Almond Flour (that I used for the Applesauce Muffins) is:

Sharon~ “These look great and I have all the ingredients on hand! I’ve been thinking grain free may be my next step but I’m not quite there yet! Its a process.”

The four winners of the Navitas Natural Organic Palm Sugar (that I used in the Pumpkin Mochi Muffins) are:

Arleen ~ “I would love to give palm sugar a try! I already have so many of your recipes printed out and added to my gluten-free binder…keep them coming! My family loves trying new things.”

Thia ~ “I love palm sugar, but have never tried this brand! Thanks for posting a give away!”

Grace ~ “Hi, I left a comment yesterday about your gluten and dairy free pizza muffins. I am only 12, but I would like to possibly win the giveway for the palm sugar, I would like to try a new ingredient for baking!”

Angela ~ “I love mochi! Ok I love Japanese food in general although trying to make it vegetarian and gluten free isn’t always easy. I really like working with mochiko flour, so fine, almost like cornstarch, especially the one from the asian store (and much cheaper,  I buy most of my flours there for a fraction of what they cost at the regular store).
About the flour hardening and getting lumpy, have you tried starting with the flour and adding the rest of the ingredients to it? I find that, just like cornstarch, is easier to keep it smooth if I add liquid to flour (in increments) instead of flour to liquid.  Of course I don’t know if altering the order would make any difference on the end result, just an idea. Man, if I wasn’t missing the coconut cream I would bake me some muffins right now…at 1:35 a.m. lol”

The winner of the giveaway from Rudi’s Gluten-Free Bakery is:

Leese ~ “What a great product! My son would love any or all of what he could win. Thanks for this idea!”

Remember there are two giveaways that are still open for the March Muffin Madness event. There’s the six-pack of Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips (which I used in the Orange Honey Chocolate Chip Muffins) that will go to ONE winner … yep, six 10-ounce bags of Enjoy Life Mini Chocolate Chips. Now that’s my kind of six-pack! (FYI:  There are only 11 entries so far.) And TWO winners will receive 4.4 lbs of Tropical Traditions Coconut Flour, plus you’ll want to check out that post—the final roundup for the MMM event—anyway because there are lots of great muffin recipes from gfe and many other bloggers, with more are being added daily.

My next post will be The GFE Virtual Gluten-Free Support Group April Meeting. Sorry for the delay, but as John Lennon said, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” If you recall, the food theme is pizza and greens (green veggie dishes, green salads, etc.), so be prepared to share your favorite gluten-free “real food” recipes (by way of a description or recipe in comments or in the linky if you’re a blogger).

Not just gf, but gfe!

    I love ENJOY LIFE mini chips they are all I can use due to all of my allergies. A Nutrionist told me about them I have been sold ever since. They taste great!

    Should I have received the Elizabeth Barbone cookbook by now?

    Our new support group went well and we plan to continue. I told them all about your virtual support group. Not sure from the comments what the plan is for the April meeting?

      Hi Pamela–The publisher had not yet mailed them out as of a few days ago, but hopefully by tomorrow they will be mailed out. Sorry for the delay on the GFE VSG post, but it’s up now. :-)

    The GF chocolate chips are hard to find in my area. So I’m excited about trying this brand of
    GF chocolate chips. I’m also wanting to try the different flours that I have read about in your blogs.

    • Shirley on April 5th, 2012 11:09 pm

      Hi Margaret–Be sure to follow the link to the Orange Honey Chocolate Chip Muffins to enter the giveaway for the Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. :-) I don’t know of chocolate chips that contain gluten, but there are not that many that are both gf and df.


  6. Thia on April 6th, 2012 1:59 am

    Ooh! I won something!! Cool! Do I need to do anything, or just wait for you to contact me?

    ::does happy dance::


    • Shirley on April 6th, 2012 7:13 am

      Congrats, Thia! I’m excited for you! I’m behind on everything right now, so if you could send me an email with your name and mailing address for your prize delivery, that would be awesome! :-)

      Thanks so much!

    I would love to win the Enjoy life mini chocolate chips! I love those things! I have many food allergies and these chips fall under my “ok” column! It is very hard to find them in my area and when I do they are quite pricey. Six 10 ounce bags would be heaven!! So many GF chocolate chip cookies!

  8. Leese on April 8th, 2012 9:32 pm

    My son was the one diagnosed Celiac, and I am still learning to cook for him. I have a special diet to follow as well for my own health situation. Cooking three completely different meals is VERY difficult. I am hoping to learn more with the things I’ve won. I also hope to learn to cook things that all of us can enjoy eating as well!

    Thanks for helping Shirley,
    all three of us do!!!

  9. Sharon on April 10th, 2012 3:53 pm

    Whoohooo!! I won the almond flour!!!! How exciting!!! I really needed it and wad just about to order some so the timing is perfect! I’m preparing to embark on a Paleo/SCD type diet. I recently had my follow up endoscopy 2 1/2 years after my celiac diagnosis and it showed lots of damage still. I am still dealing with lots of health ailments despite a very strict gluten free diet so my next step is paleo. It just seems like such a big step so I’ve been dragging my feet a little but I know what I need to do. And this bag of almond flour will certainly help! Thanks so much Shirley!!!
