Gluten_Free_Wednesdays

Gluten-Free Wednesdays continues to be going along wonderfully. I appreciate all of you who are contributing posts each week as well as all of you who are taking the time to check out all the entries every week. It’s such a fun event for our gluten-free community! Special note:  If you’re a blogger who is contributing, please remember to link back to one of the hosting blogs:  mine, Linda’s (The Gluten-Free Homemaker), or Lynn’s (Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures). Linking to any one of our blogs allows your post to show up on all three blogs! Please remember that only recipes that link back can be highlighted in the wrap up the following week (e.g., most popular recipe in the linky, most popular post shared on Facebook, a favorite of a co-host).

“My” Submissions from Last Week

Here’s are the posts that have been shared since last week for MMM, including the kickoff/roundup post showing all the links for the event:

~ “Starter” Muffins with Pretty Pink Glaze (gluten free, vegetarian, with dairy-free option)

~ Raspberry Muffin Cakes (gluten free, dairy free, egg free, refined sugar free, vegetarian)

~ Basil Prosciutto Corn Cakes (gluten free)

~ Classic Sweet Cornbread Muffins (gluten free, vegetarian)

~ Tropical Mango-Coconut Muffins (gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, vegetarian)

~ Savory Leek and Potato Brunch Muffins (gluten free, grain free, dairy free, refined sugar free, paleo, primal, with vegetarian option)

~ Knee Slappin’ Good Blueberry Muffins (gluten free, dairy free, egg free, vegan)

~ March Muffin Madness—All the Delicious Details

The event wrapped up on Monday with the MMM giveaway drawing conducted at midnight. All winners were selected by using Random.org. Notification mails will be sent to the winners. Winners will have 24 hours to respond with their name and mailing address. If there is no response within that time, a new winner will be selected using Random.org.

    This is the first time I’ve managed to come over here for Gluten-Free Wednesdays and I’ve made a cake to celebrate!!!
