Simply Gluten Free Magazine

Simply Gluten Free Fun And Giveaway Day!!

Well, by now I am most certain that you’ve heard the latest gossip around town…

There is a new Gluten Free and Allergy Friendly magazine on the block that is about to hit news stands in November.

The name? Simply Gluten Free Magazine

According to it’s August 8th Press Release, Simply Gluten Free Magazine will be a:

“…high-quality, aesthetic, highly informative bi-monthly publication with a mission to provide knowledge, support, and an abundance of creative solutions to those seeking optimum health for themselves and their families by embracing gluten-free and/or allergen free lifestyles.   The magazine, which will also be published in digital format at, will be loaded with great tasting and easy-to-prepare recipes brought to life with page-after- page of gorgeous food photography.  Kicinski says the quality, styling, and content will rival even the most well-established mainstream food and lifestyle magazines on the market.” 

The woman behind the magazine is Gluten-free living expert Carol Kicinski, she is also lady behind the Simply Gluten Free Website and the author of the books, Simply…Gluten Free Desserts and Simply…Gluten Free Quick Meals (which two lucky winners will be receiving as part of this fun giveaway package).  

And here is some additional information from the Press Release:

“Working in tandem with the magazine’s Editor-in-Chief Wendy Gregory Kaho (a veteran magazine editor, blogger, freelance writer, and a mother of two celiac children), Kicinski has recruited the talents of a team of well-respected and highly popular bloggers from the Web’s allergen-free community to serve as the magazine’s writing staff. 

“Each of our contributing writers focuses on their own areas of special interest and research,” says Kicinski.  “They are all amazing people who are dealing with creating an allergen-free lifestyle for themselves and their families every day, finding and testing various products and then blogging about their own experiences and reactions.   These writers are all very involved in allergen-free issues on the front line, fighting the fight and walking the walk.”  

And trust me when I tell you that you will NOT want to miss the first issue. This one is going to start off with a bang!

“Kicinski says for the November/December premier issue, the magazine’s Holiday Entertainment section will be filled to the brim with informative articles on how to celebrate in style with an assortment of gluten-free food ideas: 

  • Mix & Match Holiday Dinners:  Creative combinations of gluten-free entrees and side dishes to delight your guests 
  • Tips for Lowering the Costs of Gluten-free Diets  
  • Holiday Cocktails:  How to Get the Party Started and Stay Gluten-Free 
  • Preparing a Paleo Holiday Dinner 
  • Glitch-free Holiday Baking 
  • Easy Allergen-free Substitutions
  • Vegan Holiday Dessert Recipes 
  • Breaking Medical and Scientific News and Information by Leading Doctors 

Simply Gluten Free Magazine will be distributed in supermarkets, health food stores, doctors’ offices, and nutritionists’ offices, and is projected to have an initial combined monthly readership of over 250,000  (15,000 print and over 235,000 online).” 

You can sign up for your subscription today and receive 70% off the cover price right now!

Oh. And P.S….I will just include here that I am proud to announce that I will be one of the contributing writers and an Associate Editor for the magazine. 

And…while I just happen to be on the topic of Simply…Gluten Free, I want to share with you her latest cookbook as well.

Simply Gluten Free Meals

Simply…Gluten Free Quick Meals has over 100 gluten free recipes that will help you get a meal on the table quickly and easily…

This is just the book for us busy moms dealing with food allergies and special diets…all of the recipes are obviously gluten-free, but most of the recipes can also easily be adapted to many other food allergies as well, including many vegetarian options.

I love how Carol lays out the book, with all of her quick meals being set up into simple menus that make from entertaining for a group to a quick meal at home with the family seem totally doable. She also has an amazing spread of her beautiful photography of many of the dishes.

So far our family has made quite a few of the menus and we have loved every one of them. A couple of our favorite menus have been:

All American Meat Loaf Dinner:

  • Mini Meat Loaves
  • Dairy-Free Ranch-Style Smashed Potatoes
  • Broccoli with Garlic Chips
  • Dairy-Free Chocolate Ganache with Fruit

Date Night (although ours involved the kids 😉 ):

  • Steakhouse Filet Mignon
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Easy Blender Bearnaise Sauce
  • Chocolate-Strawberry Fool

And because I said that today is all about Simply…Gluten Free today, I am doing a fun giveaway package for 2 lucky winners.
