Gluten-Free Wednesdays button

I hope everyone is having a good week!  Thanks for coming here to add your gluten-free eating idea and to find other great ideas.  I hope you’ll take a minute to leave a comment on a few links.

If you get this post by email, remember to click over to the site later in the day or sometime tomorrow to see what great ideas have been gathered here.

Giveaway: This week’s giveaway is from The Marvelous Food Company. They are a new company that makes allergy friendly cookies and muffins that both have a full serving of fruit and vegetables in each serving.

Monthly Theme: I have updated the Gluten-Free Wednesdays guidelines page to include the themes for upcoming months, if you want to know what’s coming.  October’s theme is squash recipes (including, but not limited to pumpkin).  I’ll be looking for squash recipes this week.

Last Week’s Highlights:  Each week I highlight 5 links that fit the theme of the month (squash for October).  Last week we were still on apples, though.

There were lots of apple recipes last week.  You might want to go back and take a look.  With 60 entries altogether, you might have missed a few. Here are my five picks.

Lauren’s Apple Cranberry Pie – As Good As Gluten
Pecan Crusted Apple Crisp – Real Food Forager
Dairy Free Apple Oatmeal Bake – Stuff I Feed Brian
Apple Walnut Torte – Easy To Be Gluten Free
Crock Pot Apple Cake – Gluten Free A-Z Blog

My Submission:  This week’s recipe is a meal for lentil lovers.

    Linda, I linked up my Chocolate Silk Pie that you already saw. :-)

    So happy that you have selected squash for the challenge this month. I truly believe I’ll get to do that one. I have four pie pumpkins right now. 😉

    All the apple pie recipes shared have been amazing!

    Hi, I linked up with my GF blueberry muffin recipe. It is WONDERFUL! Hope you all enjoy. Thanks for the linky!

    Your lentils and bacon actually look good! (I say actually, because you don’t really look at lentils and think, yum). I may have to give that one a try. They are SO economical.

  3. says

    Thanks for hosting! I linked up date bars that are easy, delicious and allergy-friendly.

    We like lentils but I don’t fix them very often. I’ll have to try your recipe. Anything with bacon will typically win over my family.

    Hi Linda, Thanks for hosting. I love the addition of a monthly theme. I am also hosting a monthly theme event for Millet at Lunch. If you have any great recipes you’d like to share, I would love to hear about it for the round up we’re doing on Nov 1st.
    I had to reach back in my archives for a pumpkin recipe since I only just started buying pumpkins yesterday! But I’m excited! Anyway this is a hearty healthy beef lentil stew recipe, with an easy to follow 6 minute video.

    Thanks for featuring my Apple Walnut Torte! I’m loving the squash theme this month and can’t wait to get some new squash recipes. Never have enough of those! I’m sharing my yellow squash casserole. Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Linda. I’m linking my review of Hallie’s new cookbook and my experiment with kelp noodles this week. Just bought my first pumpkins and a butternut squash at a neighbor’s farm stand today. It feels like fall officially.

    Hi Linda,
    We’ve had lentils a number of times, but nothing memorable, while I think yours with bacon and mashed potatoes certainly would be. Great idea!

    I’ve linked Shrimp Stir Fry with Bok Choy, Mushrooms and Spinach, a quick and easy meal (at least, once the veggies are washed and cut). It is friendly to those with food allergies (GF, CF, egg-free, nut-free and refined-sugar-free. Also, it’s low-carb. And made with mostly whole foods. That’s without actually using anything specifically gluten-free except maybe the soy sauce.

If you have a question about a recipe (especially substitutions and nutritional information), please read my FAQ page before asking the question in a comment.
