  2. Happy Happy Birthday Linda! Have a lovely, beautiful day and a giant slice of cake! :o)

  3. HI Linda,
    I shared my GF Walnut Vegetable Dip and an article I hope you enjoy!

  4. Happy Birthday, Linda! I’d forgotten that you were a July birthday girl, too. We July “crabby” girls need to stick together. 😉 We have several July birthdays in my family and in my circle of friends. It makes for a very fun month! Enjoy your day, dear. Strettttttch out the celebration!

    I linked up my review of several products that make for delightful barbecue, picnic, etc. fare–including Canyon Gluten-Free Bakehouse Hamburger Buns, marinade, mixers, beer, and treats. :-)

    Pondering all the beverage possibilities now …

  10. Wendy @ Celiacs in the House says:

    Happy Birthday, Linda. Hope you are treating yourself to a special day. I linked up to my Lindsay Olive post that is part of a sponsored gluten-free blogger series. That olive relish was a big hit at my house and has topped omelets and pizza as well as chicken and burgers.

  11. Linda,
    Happy Birthday! I hope it’s an excellent day for you!

    My plate today has Oatmeal Raisin Walnut bars, which are gluten-free and can be casein-free, too, with the right margarine or shortening.

  12. Happy Birthday! I hope you have a wonderful day.
