Gluten-Free Wednesdays ~ 3/19/14


Welcome to Gluten-Free Wednesdays! The event has been doing wonderfully well since Linda (The Gluten-Free Homemaker) invited Lynn (Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures) and me to join her as co-hosts. We’re all so pleased that so many folks are participating with the sharing. Last week, there were 60 entries!

If you’re a reader, what a great way to do some window shopping for new recipes and other gluten-free food related info. If you’re a blogger, what a perfect opportunity to share your recipe or food-related post with so many as your entry will show up on all three of our blogs. (Note:  If you’re a blogger who would like a weekly reminder/invitation email to come link up when the event goes live, feel free to email me at glutenfreeeasily @ so I can include you in that email notification.)

Because of our month-long March Muffin Madness event with a new gluten-free muffin recipe being shared each day, I have another week’s worth of really terrific recipes to share with you! You can see them in the linky, but they’re also listed below for you. If you missed the kickoff post—the first one shown in the listing below—you can read that for all the info you need, but the important thing to know is that every comment (one per post) during this event is an entry towards some really terrific prizes!

The latest post on my other site, All Gluten-Free Desserts, is a recipe roundup post that worked for both Pie Day and St. Patrick’s Day. I’m pretty sure you’ll want to make these recipes all year long!

The Most Popular Post on Gluten-Free Wednesdays Last Week

~ Chewy Applesauce Oat Bars from Worth Cooking

(Debra makes these bars and uses jelly as the filling. Admittedly, I’m not a jelly girl, but I’d sure love subbing a brown sugar-cinnamon filling in this recipe!)

My Highlights from Last Week

It’s really tough to choose from so many delicious posts, but here are some that made “my list” last week.

~ Grain-Free Paleo Bread from Predominantly Paleo

(Jennifer admits that one ingredient in her recipe is in the paleo gray area, but her family uses it with no issues. This bread sure looks terrific! Even when not following paleo, you might want to give it a try.)

~ Gluten-Free Blueberry Pancake Muffins from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures

(Lynn gives her kids pancake taste in this portable breakfast that can be made more easily than a stack of pancakes. She also offers other flavor ideas and lets you know that these muffins freeze great.)

~ Buffalo Hassleback Potatoes from In Johnna’s Kitchen

(I really can’t resist anything with “Hasselback” in its title. You get all those crispy edges and “just right” centers, and with this recipe, there’s also the sauce. Move over Buffalo Wings!)

~ Mint Meltaways with Avocado (Paleo and Grain Free) from Petite Allergy Treats

(Laura made some beautiful grain-free, paleo treats that were perfect for St.Patrick’s Day, but are sure to be welcome any time of year!)

      Cheryl–I thought they were gorgeous, too, and I’d love to try them! :-) Thank you for linking up your ultimate roasted broccoli recipe, dear. That’s a “must try,” too!

    So many mouthwatering recipes. Today I realized

    Today, after this post, with all its scrumptious looking recipes I realized I should be grateful for my 6001 food allergies. I mean how else would I ever fit into my skinny jeans? <3

    Hi Shirley,

    I think right now the Buffalo Hasselback Potato looks wonderful!

    Have a great week -

    Thanks as always for the inspiration and great recipes.

    Hi Shirley, lots of great recipes here! I checked out quite a few, but with my Candida, many are a no go or I would need to convert them. The vanilla pear muffins sound really good to me and easy to convert. I’m sure I’ll be making them in the near future!
