Gluten-Free Wednesdays 11-30-11

Gluten-Free Wednesdays buttonHi everyone!  I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  I sure did.  We gathered with my extended family, and I was excited when I realized that the entire main meal (not dessert) was gluten free.  It wasn’t all dairy free, but at least my son was able to eat anything he wanted and we didn’t have to worry about cross contamination.

I’m glad you have stopped by.  I hope you will add a link and visit others.  Remember to leave a comment and say hello.  It helps to build community.

Giveaway: This week I am excited to have a giveaway from Swanson Health Products.  The winner receives a $25 coupon code good for anything on the site.  They carry gluten-free vitamins, supplements, and food products!

Monthly Theme:  November’s theme is stuffing.  I told you I would be looking for stuffing recipes to highlight through this week, but now that Thanksgiving is over, I think we should move on to chocolate which is December’s theme.  I’m particularly looking for chocolate desserts such as fudge, but wanted to leave the category open.

Last Week’s Highlights:  You might want to bookmark some of these for next year.

Cornbread Stuffing with Herbs & Mushrooms – Elegantly, Gluten-Free
Vegan Stuffing Traditional Style – Stuff I Feed Brian
Grain-Free Turkey Stuffing – Real Food Forager
Crunchy Long Grain and Wild Rice Dressing/Stuffing – Gluten Free Easily

My Submission:  This week’s recipe is a great classic dish that can be varied to your tastes.

    Yay for chocolate a week early! I don’t have a fudge recipe (though I do have a couple dairy free recipes I want to try), but I wanted to share my success with allergy-free muddy buddies.

    Hi Linda!
    Thank you for highlighting my Cornbread Stuffing and squash from last week. I’m so glad you liked it! This week I’m sharing about Marshmallow Crispy Treats that I rediscovered after finding the Rice Krispies® gluten-free version in the grocery store last weekend. Now I’m reeling from too much sugar, but I have enjoyed the old favorite sweet snack.

  3. says

    So sorry, Linda. I accidently linked up my GF Cinnamon Streusel Muffins twice. Thanks for hosting this wonderful GF Link-Up! I always enjoy checking out all the great recipes, as well as following your blog. Blessings to you, Kelly

      Don’t worry about it Kelly. I think every week someone ends up accidentally linking twice. I’ll take care of it. Thanks for participating!

    Our entire Thanksgiving dinner was gluten and dairy free. Our desserts were gluten free, but did have some dairy. Hopefully by next year I will have found a way to make our favorite pies dairy free too.

    Thank you for hosting. I am linking 2 gluten-free treats: Easy Peppermint Bark and Chocolate Haystacks.

    I’m so happy you had such a wonderful Thanksgiving, Linda! It remains my favorite holiday. :-) Our meal was gluten free and mostly dairy free, except for two pies my sister brought. It worked out well. I was especially tickled when my mother loved the bread I made from the Paleo Comfort Foods cookbook, so much so that she took 1/3 of it home with her. 😉

    Thanks so much for featuring my stuffing. It looks like many came through with stuffing for Thanksgiving!

    Chocolate, with fudge preferred? It seems like I’m going to have to make my mother’s fudge in a healthier way and/or share a microwave fudge recipe from back in the day.

    Happy I’ve checked out a few of the recipes shared already. Can’t wait to check out more. :-)

    Hello There~

    My name is Amber from The Tasty Alternative.

    I am submitting a very healthy, allergy-friendly recipe: chocolate pumpkin brownies.
    This brownie is free of: grain, gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, cane-sugar, and Xanthan gum. To me it tastes very “fudgey” and the closet thing to fudge I can eat.

    This is one of four recipes I featured in my chocolate + pumpkin series.

    Glad I found your blog!

    Be Well,
    –Amber @ The Tasty Alternative

    Thanks for hosting! I am looking forward to the chocolate recipes! I shared 2 recipes: Chocolate Cupcakes (Sprouted GF Flour & Egg-Free) recipe, they are super moist from the fresh “applesauce” and SO yummy! -and- a Celery Root Mash recipe, it’s SO delicious and better than mashed potatoes in my opinion. Thanks again. :)

  8. says

    I shared my video for making Grain-Free, DF Coconut Date Linzer Cookies and my Roasted Beet Salad. Lastly, I shared an article about the impending Nutrition legislation and what you can do to help.
    Thanks for hosting!

  9. says

    Hope it’s ok I submitted two recipes! I had missed your linky last week for for the stuffing theme, and also have a chocolate recipe I wanted to submit for the December theme. If you need to delete one, feel free to delete the stuffing.

    I linked up a post to 2 Pumpkin Cookie recipes today. Recipe 1 uses whole-wheat flour, and is free of dairy, egg, soy, peanut/nut. Recipe 2 is free of gluten, dairy, soy, egg, corn, peanut/nut. They were a huge hit in our home, so I hope they are in your home as well. Thanks for hosting.

    Yum, yum, yum – LOVE Shepherds Pie! Thanks for hosting. Linking up with Mini Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake Balls this week. Sorry I posted it twice, it looked like it didn’t go through the first time.

  12. says

    Hi! My recipes don’t tend to have chocolate in them if I’m cooking for the SCD but I did link up my latest Spicy Lentils recipe because it is so warming and appropriate for this time of year! Have a lovely week!

  13. says

    I posted 2 recipes. I didn’t realize it was a chocolate theme at first. I shared my Kid Approved Green Smoothie and Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream recipes. I am so excited to see everyone’s chocolate recipes-I love chocolate!
