Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger - February Edition

Welcome to the February 2010 edition of Adopt a Gluten Free Blogger! I am delighted to be hosting the event for Sea at Book of Yum this month!

For those not familiar with Adopt a GF Blogger, it was started by Sea as a way to get to know other GF bloggers better, and to try some fantastic new recipes. This month marks the two year anniversary of the event! I have enjoyed the times I have participated and hope you will join in the fun this month too.

The rules are simple:

1) Pick a gluten-free blogger whose recipes you admire and adopt them by commenting on this post with your name, blog name and their name and blog name.

*Blogger’s recipes must all be gluten-free or have a way to sort and read ONLY gluten-free recipes

*Please pick a different blogger every time you participate

*Please do not pick a blogger who has already been adopted this month.

2) Pick one (or two!) of your gluten-free blogger’s recipes to try.

3) Make the recipe, photograph it and write a post in your blog introducing the blogger and their recipe. Link back to this event announcement in your post.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible. And, please don’t print their recipe on your post- just provide your reader a link to their original recipe.

4) Email me at gfcfexperience[at]gmail[dot]com with your photo of the recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe and the URL of the original blogger’s recipe post.

*Please be sure to write "Adopt a GF Blogger" in the Subject line.

5) Post YOUR POST’s URL in a comment to this post, and if possible please try to visit two other blogger’s posts that are posted here (and comment!).

*The goal is to make this event more interactive and fun!


Sign up BEFORE February 23 (loose deadline; late sign-ups are ok)

Post your Review and Email me by March 3 (firm deadline, no foolin’)

If you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to adopt a gluten-free blogger. Sign up to adopt a blogger, write a review of one of their recipes, including your name (or pen name), the recipe URL and recipe title. Then take a photo of the completed recipe (if you can) and EMAIL ME the review and photo. I’ll create a special page just for our non-blogging participants and post it for you.

Let's get this adoption started! I will start by adopting our event's creator, Sea at Book of Yum!
