Allergy-Free Wednesdays Week 17: May 15, 2012

Hello and welcome to Allergy-Free Wednesdays (AFW).
  AFW is a weekly blog hop where folks can share their allergy-free cuisine, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and connect with others living or caring for someone with food allergies.

This is a weekly blog hop hosted by myself and six other fabulous allergy-free bloggers.  Your weekly submissions will be shared on all 7 blogs!  Check back each week for reader favorites and recipe highlights.

Savory: Salmon with Kumquats
This looks like the perfect summer dish.
What a great idea to pair orange with Salmon.

  1. Amber, it was nice to see some good recipes from last week. This week I have Mango Chicken Stir fry which is gluten free and dairy free. The fish sauce I have used is also gluten free which is a P.F Chang product.

    • Hello Balvinder,

      Oooo, PF's is my favorite restaurant!!! And mango and chicken are a great combo. The sweet and savor together are just fantastic. Thank you so much for sharing with us this week.

    Hi Amber!--I'm linking up my They Just Don't Understand series (two parts). The first part states the problems of dealing with family and friends when one is gluten free. It even categorizes them, which can be very helpful. The second part shares strategies from several gluten-free bloggers (including you!) for dealing with these folks!

    Thanks for being one of the AFW hosts!

    • Hi There Shirley,

      Thank you so much for sharing your 2-part series with us! I shared on my FB today. You're so awesome and continue to amaze me with you thoughtful, intriguing posts!!!

    So much good food!!! This week I'm sharing my Double Chocolate Date and Almond Cookies and 10 reasons why I eat soup in summer! (and all year round!)

    • Hi Debbie,

      I loved your post about summer soup. And your round-up of recipes are fantastic.

      Your cookies sound fabulous. Heading over to check them out...

    I shared my recipe for Apricot Oat Crunchies. This recipe is gluten free, but can be made using "regular" flour if you don't have issues with gluten. These cookies are pretty healthy because they contain dried apricots, dried coconut, oatmeal and cornflakes. I will be making them again soon using liquid stevia and coconut sugar instead of regular sugar.
    Thanks for hosting!

    • Hi Andrea,

      I can tell these are super good! We must be on the same wavelength. I’m also working on an apricot oatmeal recipe (I’m trying to copycat a store bought granola bar that my husband loves). I just adore dried apricots. Thanks so much for sharing with us on AFW! Can’t wait to see what you whip up for next week!!

  5. Danielle@ Against All GrainMay 15, 2012 at 11:00 PM

    I lovely lady! I shared some delicious Thai recipes this week!

    • Hi Danielle,

      This sounds super good! I'm hopping over to your blog right now!! Thanks for sharing with us this week.

  6. Katie @ This Chick CooksMay 16, 2012 at 6:26 AM

    Amber, Thanks so much for being our hostess each week and also thank you for featuring my strawberry lemonade smoothie :) Hope you have a blessed day!

  7. Hi! I shared my SCD Coffee Ice Cream recipe this week! Hope you had a lovely day yesterday, I used to love the children's birthdays, so much fun!

    Vicky x

    • Hi Vicky,

      So glad you shared your ice cream. Coffee flavored is my favorite. I'm craving some right now.

      And thank you for the sweet birthday wishes. We had a great day. My daughter turns 6 in a few weeks and she is looking so big too. It's fun watching their relationship develop. It's challenging at times, but also very sweet and precious, and I try to savor every moment I can. I know it's all going to go by so fast.

  8. France @ Beyond The PeelMay 16, 2012 at 9:02 AM

    Amber, so many cool things highlighted this week!

    I'm sharing 10 Cookbooks You Never Knew You Needed, a gorgeous Beet and Pear Slaw on Tortillas w/ Dill Creme Fraiche, and the perfect summer drink: Blackberry Balsamic Mojitos!

    Have an amazing day!

    • Hi France,

      I just loved this post. I always enjoy learning about new cookbooks.

      And your beet and pear slaw sounds crazy good. Oh, and your Mojitos...you're flavor combinations are fabulous. You always inspire me lady!!!

  9. Hi Amber, I shared my Skinny Gluten Free French Yogurt Cupcakes today. Thanks for hosting and I love your blog. hugs, Ali

    • Hi Ali,

      These sounds amazing! We've been eating A LOT of cupcakes around here these days. I'm loving all the summer berries, and they just taste so great in baked goods. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Amber! Thanks for hosting. I’m #97 this week – Bean Salad…in a hurry. I like to use dry/cooked beans instead of canned beans in this recipe, but either can be used. This is a great little side salad that can be made quickly and adjusted to suit what you have in your pantry or what you like. Enjoy!

    • Hi Sarah,

      I'm really getting into salads right now. Always a nice (and welcomed) meal with this warmer weather. I agree that prepared beans are better, not only for the no-waste factor, but for the digestion!

      Thanks for sharing with us this week!
