It’s time for the 4th of July and Summer Recipes edition of the Gluten-Free Recipe Fix carnival. One of the joys of summer is definitely the food. Fresh fruits and vegetables that we can eat right off the vine—and rejoice when we do!—and all the recipes we can make from those fresh fruits or vegetables—like crisp salads, irresistible cobblers, luscious homemade ice cream, and chilled tasty beverages. Plus, there are all the great grilled recipes that tend to happen! And I’m a big fan of the creativity that goes into patriotic recipes for 4th of July, especially when nature offers the red, white, and/or blue coloring. Bring on the gluten-free 4th of July and summer recipes!
Founded by Linda of Gluten-Free Homemaker, Gluten-Free Recipe Fix is a seasonal event for fellow bloggers to link up gluten-free recipes (only recipes). I’m cohosting with Linda and several other good blogging friends. Here’s how you can follow all of us:

Recipes must fit the current theme. This event will be open through Wednesday, July 13, so if you’re a blogger please link up your best patriotic and summer recipes each week. All of us will want to check back here every few days to see the latest!
This week I’m sharing a few of my very favorite 4th of July and summer recipes: Flourless Chocolate Quinoa Cake, Cucumber Chickpea Bruschetta, and Crustless Peach Pie.
Flourless Chocolate Quinoa Cake ~ This flourless cake is doing its patriotic best and the “inside” tastes just as good as the outside looks!
Cucumber Chickpea “Bruschetta” ~ You have to try these appetizers to see how good they really are! These are a tasty grain-free and vegan option.
Easy Crustless Peach Pie ~ This crustless pie is such an easy and delicious way to use those juicy sweet peaches.
