Welcome to Gluten-Free Wednesdays (GFW) once again! Our family had a really wonderful 4th of July weekend. I hope yours did, too!
If you’re new to GFW, it’s the weekly blog carnival event that I co-host with my friends Linda of The Gluten-Free Homemaker and Lynn of Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. The focus is gluten-free food related posts. If you’re a blogger linking up, please know that your post will appear on all three of our blogs via the linky.
My Highlights from gfe and All Gluten-Free Desserts
~ On gfe:
Make Your Own Flavored Banana Milk ~ Vanilla Banana Milk, Chocolate Banana Milk, Strawberry Banana Milk … ~ My need for bananas in my homemade cereal led to my creation of super simple, healthy, economical, and delicious flavored milks. No need at all to buy those ready-made flavored milk products!
~ On All Gluten-Free Desserts:
As I was off celebrating the holiday, I featured only one recipe on AGFD this past week:
~ 4th of July Watermelon Cake from Fork and Beans
Don’t let the name of this cake mislead you. While it’s a perfect festive fruit dessert for the 4th of July—or any patriotic holiday—it can really be enjoyed any time of the year that watermelon is in season.
Next up will be my roundup of the Top 20 desserts from last month. There are always delightful and delicious surprises!
The Most Popular Post on Gluten-Free Wednesdays Last Week
~ Paleo Tortillas from Predominantly Paleo via Whole New Mom~ I was tickled to see this recipe from Jennifer shared in a guest post over at Adrienne’s blog. That’s because I also included this recipe in Part 4 of my Bountiful Bread Basket series: Top 30+ Best Gluten-Free Tortilla and Wrap Recipes.
Jennifer’s tortillas are gluten free, grain free, dairy free, egg free, paleo, primal, and vegan. They include “secret ingredients” that are becoming more and more popular for grain-free recipes. One of them is one of Jennifer’s absolute favorite ingredients.
~ My GFW Post “Pick” from Last Week
~ Great Gluten-Free Bread from Allergy Free Alaska ~ Although Megan calls the recipe that she linked up Country Seed Bread, she also said it was great for everything! Hence, my label, Great Gluten-Free Bread. This pick barely won out over the other recipe that Megan shared, Vegan & Paleo “Butter” Pecan Ice Cream.
