August Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger Roundup!

First of all, it’s been an honor and a blast hosting this month’s Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger event! Sea of Book Of Yum really has it going on when it comes to these creations – this is definitely a fun event. I hope her dissertation is going well, and that she’s getting time to enjoy herself on her trip as well. Speaking of, she will be extending her trip through October, so if there is anyone interested in hosting for September or October, please let me or Sea know and we can get you the details.

Did you see who was adopted this month? I’m excited to really spend time looking at some of the new-to-me blogs. And oh, the dishes that were made for this event!

For starters, Shannon of Enjoying Gluten-Free Life adopted Naomi of Straight Into Bed Cakefree and Dried. Shannon opted to make Naomi’s Pecan and Apple Bread, which not only gluten-free, but also grain-free and SCD-friendly. As a huge fan of all things pecan, this sounds and looks lovely. Check out Shannon’s adoption!

Paula from Live Free, Gluten-Free adopted Danielle from Against All Grain. She opted to make these Not-A-Grain Breakfast “Cereal” Bars. I’ve already seen those myself, and can’t wait to try out the recipe. She also made her Blueberry Preserves to use in those breakfast bars. What a delight! Check out Paula’s post!

Rachel of The Crispy Cook graciously adopted me! She decided to make my Zucchini and Sun-Dried Tomato Casserole. So glad to find out that it’s delicious with regular cheese as well as the non-dairy! Check out Rachel’s adoption of me!

Kate of Eat, Recycle, Repeat participated in Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger for the first time, and adopted George of Civilized Caveman Cooking Creations. She opted to make his mouth-watering Honey Dijon Crockpot Chicken. As a fan of anything that makes our lives simpler, I’m definitely going to have to look into this crockpot chicken! Check out Kate’s post!

Shirley of Gluten-Free Easily  (you know, she was my first adoptee for Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger! I still can remember her pound cake…mmm) adopted Deanna from The Mommy Bowl. Shirley made her snickerdoodles – and boy, I can imagine these were a crowd-pleaser! Check out Shirley’s post!

Alyssa of Queen of Quinoa is a newbie to Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger too! She decided to adopt Ali and Tom of Whole Life Nutrition Kitchen. She made their amazing Grain-Free Pumpkin Cupcakes – and just look at them, aren’t they tempting? Read more about them on Alyssa’s post!

Sunny of And Love It Too! adopted Jenni of The Urban Poser this month. She too made tempting desserts – Egg-Free Vanilla Bean Coconut Macaroons and Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies. They both look incredible! Head on over to And Love It Too! to check it out!

And to bring it full circle, I adopted Sunny of And Love It Too! this month. She had so many amazing recipes, but I narrowed it down and made her craveable Paleo Roasted Red Pepper Hummus and her Vegan Sweetened Condensed Milk. Be sure and check out my adoption post!

This month was a great month – in spite of the craziness that is back-to-school time, we had some amazing adoptions! I can’t wait until next month. So if you’re interested in hosting (September or October), please let me know!

Thanks to everyone who participated!

    Yikes, just realized that while I shared this post elsewhere, I never commented. Great roundup post, Alta! All of these recipes just look divine and I KNOW how fabulous Deanna’s Snickerdoodles are. :-)

    Thanks for hosting!
