I’ve been meaning to adopt Carrie, the Ginger Lemon Girl for a long time, and yet somehow between the house showings and movings and chaos, I missed the deadline last month, so here’s my chance!
Carrie is an absolute darling, and I’ve ‘known’ her via blog for a few years. Her kindness and enthusiasm for yummy gluten-free food shines through most of her posts. She’s a gifted baker, and also a wonderfully expressive writer. For more of her “life thoughts” there’s also her Gluten Free Strawberry Blog. And, of course there are so many ways she supports the gluten-free community, like her yahoo group and Wilson area support group.
I’ve tried many of the recipes on Carrie’s blog, and it’s one where I *know* I can just select any recipe and it’ll be a winner. I have to say her Chocolate Chip Cookies are the winner of all winners–my husband and one of my co-workers are so addicted to those it isn’t even funny. Each time I make them, DH’s comment is, “when is she writing her cookbook?” So Carrie, you’ve got at least one pre-order already.
The Master Mix makes things easy, and I’d recommend keeping some of the ingredients for her pancakes all ready, too, just in case of a pancake emergency.
Looking through her recipes, I can’t wait to get into my new kitchen and try some others! I’ve been eying the vegan chocolate muffins for a while.
I’m submitting this to Adopt a Gluten-Free blogger, as created by Sea of Book of Yum. Z’s cup of Tea is our current hostess and thanks to both for all of their organizing efforts!
I think I may be having a pancake emergency. You are so right about Carrie being an absolute sweetie. She gives so much to the gf community and I have found a lot of inspiration in her health and fitness journey the past months. Her honesty about the struggle makes me feel like I’m not alone and the way she keeps at it, even after setbacks is inspiring and motivational. Great adoption, Cheryl.
My daughter is coming home from school in a couple weeks and she has to eat gluten-free. This is great timing. I’ll be sharing your post with her. Thank you!
Thanks, Wendy! I think Carrie is fantastic.
Charles, I’m honored!
