Welcome to Gluten-Free Wednesdays (GFW), the weekly blog carnival that I co-host with my friends Linda of Gluten-Free Homemaker (sadly, this site is no longer active) and Lynn of Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. Update: This week the highlights were gluten-free grab-and-go breakfast bars plus, monster bars, a giveaway of a new Vitamix, and a pear galette. Check them out!
I’ve actually been doing some baking the last week and will be sharing a new recipe with you soon. Well, it’s a “new-old” recipe. One that my family has been enjoying for special occasions for years, but now I have the gluten-free version just the way I want it. Yes, I’m a tease! Soon, folks, soon.
My Highlights from gfe
~ Vitamix S30 Personal High Performance Blender Review & Giveaway ~ I love this new model from Vitamix! It has so many great features including the fact that it takes up little room in the counter and even fits under the upper kitchen cabinets. Read more and enter the giveaway to win it for yourself! The giveaway ends soon.
Most Popular on GFW Last Week: Gluten-Free Breakfast Bars (Grab and Go!)
~ Gluten-Free Breakfast Bars (Grab and Go!) from Allergy-Free Test Kitchen was clicked on the most this past week. Peggy said she wanted a healthy breakfast protein bar that she could bake week in and week out. She cuts individual bars, wraps them, and freezes them so they truly can be “grab and go” at 6 am!
~ My GFW Post “Picks” from Last Week
~ Gluten-Free Paleo Vegan Rustic Pear Galette from Unconventional Baker ~Audrey’s “picture frame” approach to this galette is just gorgeous, and I’m sure it’s delicious!
~ Monster Bars from Celiac in the City ~ While most of us just might be afraid of monsters under our bed, we can’t resist a recipe with “monster” in the title, right? We know that means something sort of epic! These Monster Bars from Sarah are flourless, but chock full of irresistible goodness! Remember, not all M&Ms are gluten free so, go with the classic flavor or choose another flavor that you’re sure is gluten free.
~ Strawberry Lemonade (with A Lime Twist) from Tia’s Kitchen ~ Real lemonade is hard to find anymore. I’d love to have a glass of Tia’s strawberry version!
