Rachel, of the Crispy Cook, was kind enough to award my blog with an “E” for excellent! I’m quite honored. Rachel’s blog is excellent in my humble opinion! She has a clear love of fresh produce, and does a lot of preserving and canning. As an added bonus, her recipes are gluten free to accommodate her husband, who is one lucky guy!
The rules that accompany this award are as follows:
“Please find at least 10 more blogs of any kind which you deem to be excellent; but hey if you only come up with 3 or 5, I don’t mind. Post about the blogs you picked, linking back to me and to them. Once you’ve posted, return here to let me know your post is up, and of course let your 10 award winners know too.“
I’ve met a lot of fabulous bloggers in my short time blogging, and I’m delighted to have a small way to say THANK YOU to a few for their inspiration and amazing recipes! It’s been a lot of fun, and I can’t believe it’s only been 6 months. Time flies!
Here is just small sample of some of my favorites:
Sea, of Book of Yum: Her recipes are creative and original, her cuisine is global, and she’s always a generous hostess. What more could you ask for? The fact that she’s been making more allergen-friendly recipes as of late is merely a bonus.
Sally, over at Aprovechar is excellent in so many ways! She is a gifted writer and photographer, but her spirit is what really captures me. She dishes up inspiration, hope and allergen friendly recipes, which is really nourishment at its best.
I’ve been a longtime fan of Cindalou’s Kitchen Blues, and am glad to see her returning to the bloggosphere after her wedding. She serves up gluten and dairy free creative recipes that are low glycemic, healthy, and often grain free, too.
I met Shellyfish through Daring Bakers and she’s a wonderful, energetic, creative cook! Her recipes are vegan and often raw, and they’re fabulous. She has a positive outlook and great pictures that always look vibrant and crisp.
Angela and her gang over at Angela’s Kitchen is always a good read, especially since Angela shares my passion for soup. Angela’s recipes are gluten and dairy free. She teaches classes on GFCF cooking and even has an e-book coming out soon. I can’t wait!
Veggie Girl has long been a great source of vegan recipes, but she’s recently gone gluten free, too (yay!). It’s fun to hear of her travels and her recipes, and she is an incredible dancer, too! Just check out the videos of her recent competitions.
Thomas at The GFCF Experience makes my “excellent” list for several reasons. It’ s challenge to be a good parent, and that challenge is multiplied with a special needs child. There are a lot of mommies out there in the special needs world, but we don’t see as many daddies, so thank you, Thomas, for representing. Thomas provides great info, reviews and sometimes recipes, too.
Last, but CERTAINLY not least, is Carrie AKA Ginger Lemon Girl. She’s as sweet as can be and always has traditional American fare…but gluten free, of course. Many of her recipes are on my to make list, and I appreciate her energy and baking skills!
I have met SO many excellent bloggers, and could keep right on going, but work calls!
Congratulations on this well-deserved award! I also love learning about new blogs from your list. . . will go check out some of the other excellence! 🙂
Hooray for a blogging award!!! You DEFINITELY are worthy; and wow, thanks for including me as well!! 🙂
Wow! Congrats on the award. I indeed think your blog is excellent! It inspires me to make more gluten-free meals, which is always a good thing.
I’m off to discover the new blogs (new to me!) you mentioned above – and *Thank You* for the award. I feel so honored!

Congratulations on the award! I have to ‘fess up and say that if I were more observant in the blogging sphere right now then I would have nominated you 🙂 Come on, that nutritionist flair is awesome! The challenge isn’t necessary gluten or multiple allergen free, but healthy and balanced gf etc. free meals. I love to read your blog and appreciate your expertise. Sorry I haven’t been up to commenting, but rest assured I’m still stalking! Have a good one,
Y’all are so sweet. I’m blushing!
Congratulations on the award, and well deserving! And I am truly humbled that you would pass this award on to me.
Thank you so much! I’ve been feeling a little down lately and this really made my day. You’re a great member of the community and a really wonderful online friend. (tee hee, is that too geeky??) Anyway, you’re fabulous and thanks again!
