Delicious gluten-free muffin recipes from your favorite bloggers and dozens of fabulous prizes—over 75 prizes in all! Cookbooks, gluten-free resource books, gluten-free subscriptions, menu plans, food products, and kitchen equipment (including a Blendtec—thanks to the kind folks at Blendtec!).
If you’re a sports fan, I hope you won’t mind setting aside brackets and basketball for the gfe version of March Madness, which will be a daily event here and on participating blogs. There will be new giveaways offered each day here on gfe and well as an overall giveaway with all the winners announced on Tuesday, April 5th.
Entries will be accepted both via Rafflecopter and comments. Each and every comment submitted during the event—here and on all the participating blog posts—will be an entry for the overall giveaway! (*Okay, I should note that only the first comment on each post will be counted. Don’t spam us with comments thinking that will give you extra entries! LOL*) So please be sure to follow along every day and enter every day, every way!
Every day you will check in here at gfe and I’ll tell you which blog to visit for the gluten-free muffin recipe of the day. Before you click over to the featured blog to grab the recipe, you’ll want to check out and enter for the prizes of the day.
As I mentioned earlier, there will also be a giveaway for the overall event with eight terrific prizes plus that fantastic grand prize I mentioned. See all of these prizes below.

Bettie Womack says
I don’t TWEET so was totally unable to get entered on other items! I think you need to have your on-line sites overhauled…..Some came up as ERROR….or NO LONGER HERE…..or under a different name???? I NEVER got the recipe for Home-Made-Rice-Aroni…….
Shirley Braden says
Hi Bettie–The Twitter entry is simply an optional entry. Most folks are not using that. Remember that you can also leave a comment on each post in the giveaway for additional entries for the grand prize drawing.
I always want to fix any problems on my site, but I’m not sure where to start to look for the issues you were having. Which links are not working? I don’t have a recipe for Homemade Rice-A-Roni. I do have a recipe for Hamburger-Helper-Roni and that comes up immediately when you use my Search bar.
Could you please provide more info here or email me at [email protected] so I can check out and resolve any issues? Thanks,
Cheryl B says
Since discovering that I am wheat and dairy intolerant, I was very happy to find your blog, the recipe sounds wonderful.
Carrie Conrad says
