So without further ado...

May I present you with the three most popular submissions:

10 Alternatives to Buying Gluten Free Bread
Check out this great post!
   From: Gluten Free and Loving It

Gluten and Rice Free Multigrain Bread
I'm so going to try this bread.
I have yet to find my groove in the bread-making department,
but we all have to start somewhere, right! This is it.
From my pal Megan @ MAID in Alaska 

Sloppy Joe Pie Recipe
Lots of good deals on this site.
From: Coupon Teacher 

And here are the three fabulous recipes/posts I chose to highlight:

  Sweet: Gluten Free Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Donuts
Okay, I'm sold.  Tessa got me interested in making donuts, then I saw the cute little donut machine used to make these delicious things - I'm so in!
Can't wait to try all the great recipes out there.
From: Premiditated Leftovers  

Savory: Coconut, Lime, and Quinoa Fish Stew
My stomach started growling after I saw this...and I just ate, so what's that mean!?  Really great mix of ingredients.  And fish is sort of scarce in recipes (which is understandable considering the quality of fish these days).  But our local Coop has wonderful, wild caught fish that would taste great in a soup.
From: Peanut Butter, Passports, and Epinephrine

Healthy Snack: Creamy Green Collard Smoothie
I've been on a serious smoothie kick these days.  
And so this recipe caught my eye.
First, the color is gorgeous, but the recipe totally sold me.
Quick, easy, and delicious. 
From: @ Home with Gina C.

  • Alea @ Premeditated LeftoversMarch 20, 2012 at 11:00 PM

    Thank you for highlighting my Chai Spiced Sweet Potato Doughnuts. I am hooked on making doughnuts for my family. This week I am on vacation, but I linked a Spaghetti Squash Pie recipe that my friend Jami shared in a guest post on my blog while I'm gone.

    1. Hi Alea,

      I plan on purchasing a cute little donut maker like the one you use, so I'll let you know how it goes!

      Thanks for linking up this week. And have a GREAT vacation!

    Happy Wednesday Amber! Hope you're having a great day :)

    I'm sharing Braised BBQ Beef Brisket (with homemade BBQ sauce), 20 Minute Masoor Daal with Cumin Seed Oil, and some Heavenly Maple Pecan Bars.

    Thanks for hosting!

    1. Hello France,

      Happy Wednesday to you too. I'm just about to head over to your linky party. :-)

      Thank you for sharing such great recipes. I always look forward to what you come up with. You're amazing!


  • Megan @ MAID in AlaskaMarch 21, 2012 at 10:35 AM

    Thank you so much for highlighting my bread! I wish you were closer so we could make some together - although I have a feeling we'd be doing more talking and laughing then baking! =)

    Thanks to all the hostesses for hosting this event!

    1. Hello There Megan,

      Wouldn't that be a hoot! Yes, I see this turning into a little party. :-) I have to say, it's so magical cooking with friends. Sort of a lost art. It's really something when the parents all get together in the kitchen, chopping, baking. sauteing, washing, B.S.ing, laughing, etc., while the kids are running around outside having a blast. It's a special time!

      Hugs to you,
