It is Almost Time For…A Gluten Free Holiday

A Gluten Free Holiday

I love this. This is the rule that stands in our house too! There is just a nice ritual about decorating over the long Thanksgiving Holiday.

Plus, Thanksgiving is truly one of my favorite holidays. And I always host the special meal at my house. So…it would look really funny if my halls were already decorated for Christmas while the family was seated around the table eating our Thanksgiving feast.

But…that does not mean that the holiday menu planning has to wait.  I know that I, along with many of my food-blogging friends have already started thinking of the fun gluten free and allergy friendly recipes we are going to be sharing with all of you. We are already making plans to help you get ready for a….

Gluten Free Holiday

A Gluten-Free Holiday….

Hosted by Amy, over at Simply Sugar and Gluten Free.

It’s the second year of celebrating the holiday season totally gluten-free!

How?

With a weekly themed link-up event and fabulous cookbook give-aways!

Why?

The holidays are stressful enough without worrying whether your gluten-free pie crust or your Apple Spice Cake will turn out. We want to make this season as easy as possible by sharing our favorite kitchen tested gluten-free recipes.

We?

Yes, we…..the line-up this year includes:

Amy, of Simply Sugar and Gluten Free (the official host)

Alta, of Tasty Eats At Home

Hallie, of Daily Bites (and the author of a wonderful new cookbook, The Pure Kitchen, that I will be telling you all about and giving a copy away later this week)

Ricki, of Diet, Desserts, and Dogs

Maggie, of She Let Them Eat Cake

And Me!

And, of course you!  If you weren’t there it just wouldn’t be a holiday celebration.

Here’s the scoop….

On Thursdays in November and December, a different gluten-free blogger will host a link-up event where you can share your best gluten-free holiday dishes and browse for recipes to add to your menu.

Every week we’ll have a give-away, too. You can link up or leave a comment to enter.

Dates & Themes:

November 3rd – Healthier Through The Holidays at Simply Sugar & Gluten-Free

With cookies and rich meals all around during the holiday season, it’s smart to think about how to stay healthy. Bring your favorite healthier dish to SS&GF. Or, share your secrets for maintaining your sanity and health during the holiday hustle and bustle.

November 10th – Thanksgiving Favorites here at Cook It Allergy Free

Share your favorite gluten-free Thanksgiving dish from appetizers to desserts here at Cook It Allergy Free. We want to see your stuffing, turkey dishes, pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes, cranberry jelly…anything Thanksgiving goes. (To our Canadian friends – please share your Thanksgiving dishes, too!  We know you celebrated earlier than the US!)

November 17th – Edible Gifts at Taste at Tasty Eats at Home

This is my very favorite week of the event. There’s nothing that says love like a gift from the kitchen. Share your top tips for making treats to give, along with how you package them too!

December 1nd – Holiday Entrees & Sides  Dishes at Daily Bites

Bring your family’s favorite entrees and sides for Christmas and Hanukkah. We want to see the savory dishes your family loves the most. Or, experiment with a new recipe and bring it to Hallie’s.

December 8th – Holiday Breakfast & Brunch at Diet, Dessert, and Dogs

Share a recipe that holds special memories for you. Help someone else find the perfect dish for their holiday breakfast or brunch.

December 15th – Holiday Desserts at She Let Them Eat Cake

Just like it sounds – bring Maggie your favorite gluten-free dessert for all to share.  Cookies, pies, truffles, cakes, and candies….we want to try them all.

What now?

Get your recipe box and cookbooks out.  Start browsing…then get in the kitchen and start cooking for the best ever gluten-free holiday!

We cannot wait to see you!

Oh, and soon I will also be recapping my Allergy-Friendly Thanksgiving Prep Series with a full menu and even the Shopping List to get it all done.

    We only have Christmas to celebrate over here, so I like to go all out with my tree and decorations! The weekly theme sounds like a great idea and I look forward to it!
