Gluten-Free Wednesdays 1/12/11
Life is quieting down a bit now that the holidays are over. I enjoy winter and could spend all day snuggling with my dogs in front of a fire while reading a book (or a blog). That hasn’t actually happened yet this winter, at least not the all day part, but the pace has slowed. We have a light snow fall as I write, and that’s one of my favorite experiences of winter. I hope life has slowed down a little for you too and that you are enjoying these January days.
Recipe Contest: Would you like to win an iPad? That’s the prize for the Everyday Health gluten-free recipe contest. So far there are not a lot of entries. If I was not a judge for the finalists, I would be on top of this!
Monthly Challenge: January’s challenge is to make a gluten-free biscuit. I got to work on the challenge over the weekend and made biscuits twice. The first batch wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t what I was looking for. The second batch, however, turned out just as I had hoped. The post is still in draft form and should be posted on Monday.
Last Week’s Highlights: There weren’t any biscuit entries last week, and I don’t expect there will be as many as there were cookie entries last month. So this week I thought I would highlight a couple of new participants.
Pecan Garlic Crackers from The Nourishing HomemakerMy Submission: I’m submitting another very simple but tasty recipe this week.
Zucchini Spaghetti & Meatballs from Cocina Diary
The Carnival: If you’re new, please read the guidelines. Thank you to everyone for your participation! I hoe you can visit at least a few other links and leave a comment.

I linked up my green smoothie challenge from the D-Tox January event. I'll show anyone who enjoys a good virgin pina colada how to transition that to a "greena" colada in one easy step and they'll love the end result, too. Come one, come all, to take the challenge! ;-)
Some great stuff here already ... glad I forgot to leave a comment earlier when I linked up and had to came back. :-)
I'm excited about the biscuit challenge as biscuits are the token thing I can bake without a recipe. I might try making a vegan version if I'm feeling inspired...
