I’m back again, hosting this month’s Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger event! If you are new to Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger, it is the brainchild of Sea at Book of Yum. The goal is to allow gluten-free bloggers to get to know one another a bit better through reading their blogs, featuring them, and of course, testing out their recipes. It’s one of my favorite events, as I get a chance to try out recipes that I’ve so long drooled after.

Sea is still busy in Japan, working on her dissertation, so I offered to host again to help out. It’s my honor to be the host this month!

How do you participate?

Here’s how (if you aren’t a blogger but want to join in, you can! Read the info at the bottom of the post).

1) Pick a gluten-free blogger whose recipes you admire and adopt them by commenting on this post with your name, blog name and their name and blog name.

*Blogger’s recipes must all be gluten-free or have a way to sort and read ONLY gluten-free recipes

*Please pick a different blogger every time you participate

*Please pick a blogger that has not been adopted yet this month!


2) Pick one (or more!) of your gluten-free blogger’s recipes to try.


3) Make the recipe, photograph it and write a post in your blog introducing the blogger and their recipe.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible. And please don’t print their recipe on your post-just provide your reader a link to their original recipe.

*Provide a link to this event announcement page


4) Email me at: alta (at) tastyeatsathome (dot) com with a photo of your recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe and the URL of the original blogger’s recipe post.  PLEASE SIZE PHOTO TO BE A MAXIMUM OF 500 PIXELS WIDE. (Pretty please)


5) Post YOUR POST’S URL in a comment to this post, and if possible try to visit two other blogger’s posts that are posted here (and comment!).

*The goal is to make this event interactive and fun!


Sign up BEFORE September 28th (loose deadline; late sign-ups are OK)

Post your review and e-mail me by October 5th (firm deadline, no foolin’)

Now, this is a cool option if you don’t have a blog.  You can still sign up to adopt a blogger, then snap a photo of the dish you’ve made and email me your name, the recipe’s URL and title, and the photo.

I will start the adoptions by adopting Beth of Tasty Yummies.  Now it’s your turn!

Adoption Sign-Up Sheet:

1) Beth of Tasty Yummies! (adopted by me, Alta of Tasty Eats At Home)

2) Maggie of She Let Them Eat Cake (adopted by Melissa of My Hodge Podge Life)

3) Danielle of Against All Grain (adopted by Kate of Eat, Recycle, Repeat)

4) Sarah of My New Roots (adopted by Michelle of The Gluten-Free Wife)

5) Trish of Gluten-Free in SLC (adopted by Paula of Live Free, Gluten-Free)

6) Eat With Your Eyes (adopted by Shannon of Enjoying Gluten-Free Life)

    This sounds like such a great idea. But most of the bloggers I know are all more experienced than me so I’d feel a bit silly -adopting- one of them. But I did want to let you know that I’m posting the crockpot oatmeal idea from the expo on my blog on Wednesday. I hope you don’t mind but I thought it an idea worth sharing. If you want me to remove it, I shall. Just thought I’d let you know.

      Tabitha – do it, seriously! You won’t be silly at all. Adopting just means you get to make their recipes, and it doesn’t matter how experienced or inexperienced anyone is. :) It’s all about getting to know one another through our gluten-free food. :) And as for the oatmeal thing, long as you’re not reposting the same exact recipe, I have no problem with it at all.

    Thanks for explaining this! I’ve always wondered… and now this might inspire me to do it. (and I ditto Tabitha’s sentiments, so thanks for the encouragement to “press on”!)

    After a brief hiatus, I am playing blogger catch-up!! I am glad I didn’t miss the sign-up but need to work on a few projects and am not 100% certain I can have an adoption post up by the 5th.

    That being said…I should know by Friday and will have my selection over to you if I know I can have my post up by then!!

    Thank you for hosting this month, Alta. I am excited to see the round-up.
