Hosting Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger, May 2011

I’m pleased to announce that I am hosting the monthly blogging event Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger. Every month gluten-free bloggers choose and make their favourite bloggers’ recipe(s) and blog about their experience. It was started by Sea of Book of Yum, in an effort to get to know the gluten-free blogging community better and make those recipes we promise ourselves to do…one day. How many recipes have we all bookmarked, whether in a cookbook or our favourite blog, with the intention of making it but don’t?

Well, that’s part of Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger: picking those recipes that have been sitting on the back burner for who knows how long and finally getting it from our minds to our stomachs. Food for thought becomes food for the soul, literally.

I have previously participated in this event – you can see all my adopted bloggers so far here – and have had my self “adopted” by some wonderful gluten-free bloggers as well.

Sign up is simple and it’s easy to participate. Leave a comment telling me whom you’d like to adopt, following the guidelines below after the jump.

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.


  • Be sure that your chosen blogger’s recipes are 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 pick a blogger that has not been adopted yet this month! If that blogger you wanted to adopt has already been adopted, pick another one and better luck next month! 🙂 Exception: double adoptions are acceptable in the instance of an adopter postponing for next month and if adoptee has already been adopted by another blogger.

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.

*Follow the recipe as written, as closely as possible, excepting necessary substitutes for self-explanatory reasons, i.e. allergies. Please don’t print their recipe on your post – just provide your reader a link to their original recipe and a link back to this announcement page.

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

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. Remember, this event is all about getting to know the gluten-free blogging community better and making it more interactive and fun!


Sign up BEFORE May 31, 2011 (loose deadline; late sign-ups are okay) and post your review and email it to me by June 10th, 2011 (firm deadline, no nonsense).

Note that if you don’t have a blog, you are still welcome to adopt a gluten-free blogger. Sign up to adopt a blogger following the above guidelines, 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 will include your review and photo as part of the round-up in June.

  1. Hi Zoe! I don’t know if Sea told you but I get a mulligan this month since I was unable to complete my adoption of Gigi at Gigi Gluten Free last month. So I am going to be fulfilling that obligation this month.

  2. I was about to post my “adoption” of Karina at Gluten Free Goddess for last months, when the post came up. I was a little late, so I’d like to fulfill that this month, and re-adopt Karina at Gluten Free Goddess!
    Thanks –
    Alena @ Two Sisters Gluten Free

    1. Thanks! You did a fantastic job and it was a great read. If you could email me at the email address provided with your photo of the recipe, the URL of your post, name of the recipe, and the URL of the original recipe that would be super!

    1. Yay!! Thanks for picking me kalinda 🙂 excited to see what you try!
      And thanks for hosting Zoe.

  3. I kind of forgot/missed the Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger thing this month! Is it too late – can I adopt Cheryl of Gluten-Free Goodness?
