How long have you been blogging? Since Feb 2009
Why did you start a gluten-free blog?
It started as a vegetarian recipe blog, but evolved into a gluten free blog as our youngest son was diagnosed with food allergies.
What makes your blog different than anyone else?
There are so many great blogs out there today! My blog gives the perspective of recipes that are easy to make and adaptable. Our household has many different dietary needs so if we post a recipe that includes dairy products, we have also made that same recipe dairy free. (or vice versa). Our recipes are adaptable. Whether you need to add in meat, sub in/out a nut based product etc. We give honest reviews on products that we try. We have spent a lot of money on “not so good” gluten free products and we don’t want you to waste your money! We also offer a link up on Fridays were other blogs come together to link up their favorite GF recipes. Our purpose is not to be #1, we just want to create a community of sharing and togetherness. We are all in this together, right?
What would you like to see with your gluten-free blog in the future?
I’d love to continue creating and reviewing recipes as well as gluten free products. When time allows, I’d love to increase our weekly posts and include restaurant reviews.
What do you love about gluten-free blogging most?
That I can share what I’ve learned. I have learned so much from trial and error and I want to share that! No need to reinvent the wheel, we all need to share and learn from each other!
Do you do giveaways? If so, what was your favorite giveaway?
Yes, we do giveaways! My favorite giveaways are the ones hosted during our Gluten Free Fridays parties! We try to hold a GFF giveaway 1-2 times a month!
Tell me some of your favorite gluten-free blogs that you read.
