Gluten-Free Wednesdays 10-31-12

Gluten-Free Wednesdays buttonHi everyone!  October is almost over, and it sure ended with a bang around here.  Our area was affected by hurricane Sandy, and although we got a ton of rain and had very strong sustained winds, the effects were not as bad as expected.  We lost power last evening, but I am hopeful that it will be restored in a day or two.

Thanks for stopping by for this carnival.  I hope you will add a link and browse the others.   

Giveaway: This week I am giving away a copy of The Flavor Bible.  It’s my new favorite “cookbook.”

Monthly Theme: October’s theme has been sweet potatoes and that will continue this week.  November’s theme is appetizers (with holiday parties in mind).  The theme is just a suggestion, not a requirement, but I do look for theme related recipes to highlight each week.

Last Week’s Highlights:  Here are the last of the sweet potato highlights.

Black Bean Sweet Potato Tacos – Gluten-Free Cat
Sausage w/Russet Potatoes & Sweet Potato Cream Sauce – GFE
Oven Baked Sweet Potato Fries – Tessa the Domestic Diva
Grilled Sweet Potatoes and Apples – Allergy Free Test Kitchen

My Submission:  I finally have a sweet potato recipe for you, and it’s a great one.

  1. Hi Linda! I’ve added my Milk Dud Bon-Bons just in time for Halloween. :-) Thank you for using your site to host, and have a great week!

  2. Thanks for hosting. Sweet potatoes are so yummy. I can’t even imagine how great they’d taste roasted with coconut! Thanks for the recipe. I hope you’ll stop by (if you haven’t already) and link it up at Gluten-Free Monday on

  3. Hi Linda,

    Your roasted sweet potatoes sound delicious.

    I’ve got two recipes to share this week – Halibut Lettuce Wraps With Thai Coconut Curry Sauce and Guilt Free Double Chocolate Banana Cookies.

    Hope your power is restored soon. Have a great week!

  4. Thanks so much for hosting! Today I am sharing the best frittata I have ever had and a new series that I am doing that focuses on food photography, equipment and props.

  5. Good morning and thanks for hosting!

    Bread machine? Fuggedaboudit! Here’s the low-down on making bread machine recipes by hand:

    And in celebration of Pumpkin Week, I’m sharing a pumpkin coconut cake: so moist, so delicious!

    Have a great week!

  6. Hi Linda, I’ve linked up Chocolate Haystacks this week. These treats are perfect for fall and Halloween, but will also work as treats for any holiday or occasion. Pistachio and cranberry adornments even make them a bit “Christmasy.” 😉

    Your sweet potato recipe looks great! I like the new theme of appetizers, too. :-)

    Grateful that you weren’t too affected by Sandy … us either, and Son in NYC is fine as well. Very relieved. But so many folks have been through a lot and still have much to go through. Keeping them all in my thoughts and prayers.

    Hope your power is back on. Hugs,

    • Shirley, I saw your haystacks earlier this week, and they look great. I’m glad your son is safe and sound. I’m sure that was a bit tense for you!

  7. Thanks for highlighting my sweet potatoes and apples recipe. This week I’m linking up another autumnal recipe….apple pie porridge! Thanks for hosting!

  8. Thanks so much for hosting!



  9. Hi! Thank you for hosting! I shared a recipe for a Chunly Vegetable and Bean Stew this week which was created by my daughter and eaten by us tonight for our dinner!

    Have a lovely week!

  10. Thanks for hosting, Linda! I linked up a few fall-themed recipes.
