Here we are together for Gluten-Free Wednesdays (GFW) again. GFW is the weekly blog carnival event that I co-host with my friends Linda of Gluten-Free Homemaker (unfortunately, this site is no longer active) and Lynn of Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures. If you’re new to GFW, our event is focused on gluten-free food-related posts—recipes, menu planning, ingredient reviews, product reviews, gluten-free travel, and much more. When you need some gluten-free inspiration, just check out the latest GFW event!
Be sure to check out all the links throughout the event because links can be added from late Tuesday evening through each Thursday at midnight. If you’re a blogger, we’d love for you to link up your gluten-free food posts during that time period. Even non-gluten-free bloggers often have lots of gluten-free posts. Remember that linking up to just one of our blogs shows your post(s) on all three blogs—so you have all our readers checking out your blog!
My Highlight from gfe
~ Four-Ingredient Taco Seasoning—That You Don’t Make Ahead—for Easy and Tasty Tacos ~ Just like it says. No prep time and so few ingredients for these family-pleasing tacos. Plus I tell you how to thaw out your ground beef, ground turkey, etc. without the microwave if it’s dinner time and you realize that you didn’t take the main ingredient out of the freezer. It’s a dinner-saving trick!
The Most Popular Post on Gluten-Free Wednesdays Last Week
~ Gluten-Free and Vegan Spinach Tortillas from Allergy Free Alaska ~ While I would have never thought of making my own spinach tortillas, this recipe looks simply amazing. By the way, you can check out over 30 of the best gluten-free tortilla recipes from Megan and many others in our gluten-free community. (There are recipe options for every diet.)
My GFW Post “Pick” from Last Week
~ Fantastic Fish Tacos from Pocketfuls ~ Fish tacos are one of the best meals in the world. I love the ingredients that Lisa has added to her fish tacos. They truly look fantastic!

Good Morning Shirley
Thank you for hosting, I’ve posted a recipe for Rhubarb Crumble and a separate one for the crumble topping on my blog this week so I thought I’d pop over and share t with you!
Hope you’re having a lovely week so far.
Hi Vicky–That looks wonderful and I love the crumble topping that one can use for just about anything! Who doesn’t love crumble topping? 😉 Thanks so much for popping over and sharing!
We’ve had a good weekend. I hope you have, too! 🙂 xo,
Audrey @ Gluten-Free Vegan Love says
Those spinach tortillas already caught my eye on facebook — they look great!
How could you miss them, right, Audrey? That beautiful real food green color stands out! Such a fun and healthy recipe. 🙂 And thanks again for linking up your Raw Coconut Balls—love those!
Vicki The Free From Fairy says
Hi! I hope you don’t mind me not posting a recipe. I recently discovered the link between poor teeth and coeliac disease and thought that your readers might be interested. Here in the UK it seems that very few people are aware of it…so I am trying to raise awareness.
Hi Vicki–This is your first time commenting, so I want to officially welcome you to gfe! 🙂 Recipes aren’t required for Gluten-Free Wednesdays but, for future reference, gluten-free eating ideas are. It can be a bit of a gray area though as so many health issues and the gluten-free food connections have been shared in the past and that applies here. I really do appreciate you sharing your story because you’re so right that the connection to dental issues are way overlooked. I even had to educate my own dentist about the connection, but his reply was that the signs of celiac also looked much like lack of fluoride. So I doubt that he’s using the info on a daily basis and maybe not at all. 🙁
It’s really terrific that your dentist IS aware of the connection to other health issues. I hope you’ve educated her on the connection to celiac. It’s definitely an early warning sign. The info that I gave my dentist, Oral Manifestations of Celiac Disease: A Clinical Guide for Dentists, is in PDF and can be found several places online: http://www.happyhealthyteeth.com/wpt/blog-docs/jcda-oral-manifestations-of-celiac-article.pdf Thanks for educating others.
Has your daughter been tested for celiac? She should be, of course, since you have celiac and it is genetic. I’m somewhat new to your blog, so I don’t know your family’s history. And thanks again for linking back to my bread roundup earlier this year and my apologies on spelling your name wrong then!
Hi Shirley. 🙂 I’m excited to see my fish tacos featured this week — they’re one of our favourite simple summer meals! I hope your readers love them too. The spinach tortillas look so delicious — I’ll have to try making some!
Lisa–You hit a home run with those fish tacos! So many people I know haven’t even tried fish tacos. I think they will be totally amazed when they do. Well, at least when they try great ones like yours! 😉 I think there are several of the homemade tortilla recipes in that roundup that you’d like, too. Megan’s are calling everyone’s name right now though!
Starlene @ GAPS Diet Journey says
Thanks for hosting! I’m including my leek and beet tops soup. It’s delicious warm or cold.
Thanks for linking up, Starlene. I love soup year round. I’ve not embraced cold soups yet, even in the throes of summer heat, so I’ll take mine warm please. 😉 I’m sure that folks who use beets a lot will appreciate a new way to use their beet tops. 🙂
Hey Shirley, Thanks for hosting! I shared my simple brownie recipe. It’s a great one to bake with the kids!
Hey Amber–It’s great to see you here again. I’ve missed you and Gluten-Free Tuesdays. 😉 These brownies look great. I think they’re slated for All Gluten-Free Desserts for sure … and soon!
This is great! I HAVE to try those fish tacos! They look delicious.
What I’ve really been searching for though, and perhaps you could help me is a GOOD gluten free pizza. Everyone I have had so far has been just awful. I got some suggestions on my blog but none of them panned out to be any good unfortunately.
You seem like you know what you are doing 🙂 So I am curious to know which kind of pizza or pizza crust you would suggest? Gluten free crust of course!
I wrote a blog post about how awful my pizza experience has been that you could check out…http://glutenfreethin.com/you-serve-gluten-free-food-well-it-sucks/
Thanks and I look forward to frequently returning to your blog!!
Hi there–Welcome to gfe! Happy to have you visit Gluten-Free Wednesdays. 🙂 I’m not a fan of eating gluten-free pizza out. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve eaten gf pizza out and not gotten sick, and that’s not even considering the “goodness” factor. So if you’re looking for pizza recommendations for eating out, I am not your person at all. 🙁 But if you want great, simple recipes for making pizza at home, I have lots of options for you. I highly recommend my Flourless Dough-Free Gluten-Free Pizza. One has to make it to believe it! (Read the reviews.) And I have a series called It’s A Gluten-Free Pizza Party with lots of other recipes that are great. Part 1 is here, and Part 2 is here. Hope you find something you like!
