Goodness, it’s been another great week at Gluten-Free Wednesdays with gluten-free Pull-Apart Dinner Rolls and so much more that’s gluten free and good. But we’ll get to all that goodness in a moment.
Son was here for a week and we had a wonderful time doing all kinds of things. As I shared on Facebook the other day, “No matter how old a mom is, everything feels right in her world when her “child” is home. Happy!” And I’m so happy that we definitely have been enjoying this last week with him! He and his dad, Mr. GFE, put down a bushel of roasted oysters over the course of two days. When his dad proclaimed himself stuffed and had to bail on the second evening, Son put his cell phone on speaker so he could chat with his girlfriend while he finished off the oysters. He never missed a beat!
Son and I had several late night baking adventures, too. The first time I used a combination of almond butter and peanut butter to make these cookies. One night I planned to make my Paleo Disappearing Mounds Cookies. Then I discovered that I didn’t have enough almond butter so I used some hazelnut flour and created Chocolate Almond Coconut Hazelnut Cookies. Oh my goodness, those were good! Look for the recipe in the near future.
Our collie Sonny is moping about now that Son has departed. Mr. GFE and I know Son will be back home in less than a month for Christmas, so we’re doing fine. Plus, I’m getting ready to host our family Thanksgiving, so I’m busy.
I hope you all will have a most wonderful Thanksgiving with your loved ones and that you have many blessings to count! I’m counting each and every one of you as blessings for sure!
Now for Gluten-Free Wednesday (GFW) … if this is your first time visiting on Wednesday, GFW is the weekly blog carnival that I co-host with my friends Linda of Gluten-Free Homemaker (sadly, this site is no longer active) and Lynn of Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. If you’re a blogger, please link up your gluten-free eating ideas (following guidelines at the bottom of this post). Your submissions will show up on all three of our blogs. Plus, readers choose their favorite each week and we do the same by following links and seeing what appeals to us and all that will be highlighted the following week. Most weeks we would really like to highlight everything that’s been linked up!

I found that so humorous- but also jealous over the oysters- YUM!
I should show this post to my mum the next time she complains when I visit haha! Thanks again for hosting and please eat some extra turkey for me!
It was pretty funny to see him in action multitasking, Arman. 😉 You’d definitely get along with the men in this family if you’re an oyster lover. 🙂 It’s glorious when sons visit, but they do need a lot of attention. Hehe. There will be lots of turkey eating tomorrow for sure. I’m sure I’ll eat some for you!
I wish you a Happy Thanksgiving Shirley! Glad your son could spend a week with you. Your dressing was a hit with my family and I’ve been enjoying the leftovers.
Thanks so much, Sherri! Happy Thanksgiving to you as well! 🙂 I love that your family loves that dressing so much. Somewhere I have a great recipe for using leftover turkey and dressing in a casserole. Quite tasty! I’ve also made it into croutons here; works great! That wouldn’t be so unique with stuffing made from bread crumbs, but it’s pretty cool when the stuffing started with tortilla chips. 😉
Thanks for sharing the Pull-Apart rolls! I’m so excited to try them!
Hi Jennifer–Welcome to gfe! So happy you’re excited about these rolls. All the credit goes to Michelle of My Gluten-Free Kitchen, of course. 🙂
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Sharing my AIP Pumpkin Pie this week. I hope you have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This week I’ve shared my fig tart recipe from last year, although you will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, we’re looking forward to our next yearly highlight – Christmas and these are perfect for this time of year.
I hope you have a lovely day with your family xo
Vicky–You’re so right that there were many wonderful recipes last week, but choosing every week is VERY hard! Your pot pie just had overall appeal to me and it works for so many special diets! 🙂 I remember your fig tarts; they’re so lovely! And they are perfect for this time of year for sure.
Thanks so much for the Thanksgiving wishes, dear! Hoping you’re Christmas season is getting off to a wonderful start. xo,
Hello, I stumbled across your site about two weeks ago. I love it. You have really been working hard getting us all of the info and the recipes. Wow. Thank you so much for what you are doing. I feel that maybe I can live pain free now.
Hi Shari–Welcome to gfe and you’re welcome, of course! So glad that you found my site and I’m truly grateful for your generous words! 🙂 I sincerely hope you will find many helpful recipes and info here on gfe and that gluten-free living helps you feel better day by day.

oh my goodness- i made the rolls for our meal yesterday, and even using the flax seed/water as eggs they came out delicious! i can’t wait to make them again. =)
Hi Laura–Welcome to gfe! Yay on having such success with an egg-free version of Michelle’s recipe! She will love hearing that news and so will all the folks who are egg free and interested in the recipe. 🙂
Thanks so much for taking the time to share this feedback with us all. Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!
