A Gluten-Free Buffet of Newsy Bits

There is a smorgasbord of interesting and noteworthy items to report in the gluten-free blogging community:

Karina, the Gluten-Free Goddess over at Karina's Kitchen, has posted a tasty roundup of summery dishes in her Recipe Rodeo to highlight Celiac Awareness Month. Her website has a fresh, new design and even more gorgeous food photography, so be sure to check it out. I was honored to have my Salmon Burger recipe included in the roundup, which is a lot of work, but ultimately an elegant barbecue burger perfect for summer entertaining.

Another health awareness cooking event sponsored by The Food Blogga, Beautiful Bones, has wrapped up with an awesome calcium-rich recipe roundup of over 100 recipes. The Beautiful Bones event was designed to highlight awareness of osteoporosis and prevention of bone loss through better nutrition. I contributed Dan's new Polenta-Quinoa Sticks recipe which has just been the meal voted least likely to become a leftover in our house. There are an incredible variety of beautifully bony dishes at the roundup, from soups to Mango Ice Cream.

Carrie over at the relatively new gluten-free and dairy-free blog, The Good Eatah, recently announced her engagement. She and her honey were on vacation skydiving (whoa!) and just before he leaped into the sky, he ripped off some tape on his helmet which popped the question. Congratulations!

Thomas at the GFCF Experience, is hosting this month's edition of the Adopt A Gluten-Free Blogger Event. It runs through June 9th, so there is still time to adopt your favorite GF blogger, cook up one of his or her recipes and blog away. Click here for more details.

And finally, the latest round of the Go Ahead, Honey, It's Gluten-Free cooking challenge, which featured breakfast dishes, has a roundup posted over at Naomi's beautiful and often humorous Straight into Bed Cakefree and Dried blog. I contributed a potato recipe which is amusingly described in this delightful roundup. The next GAHGF event will focus on one-pot meals and will hosted by another gluten-free Carrie, The Ginger Lemon Girl, so look for details on her blog.

I cannot believe I've never heard of it before! i just love how he covers so many aspects of just "HOW to cook" vegetables! I am completely clueless there, I grew up on canned veggies, which I still love, but I really want to know and enjoy cooking live, fresh veggies!!
