Naomi and I were discussing all the possible foods that could work for the April edition of "Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free (GAHIGF)." Since Spring is here and everyone wants to be outside enjoying the warmer weather, we decided April's Theme will be Gluten Free Finger Foods. Let your creative side go wild and make hand held tarts, ice pops, vegetable skewers or spring rolls. Whatever you choose to make it must be held in the hand to be eaten.
The very first round of GAHIGF in February, focused on Gluten Free Tea Time Treats. It was hosted by the founder of "Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free, " the wonderful Naomi of Straight Into Bed Cakefree and Dried. We could choose any food that you could serve with tea...cakes, scones, muffins or sandwiches. I made a Kronans Kaka, a cake that I had been wanting to make ever since we were given a copy of "All Things Swedish."
For the second round of GAHIGF March, we baked Birthday Treats for Kids. Hosted by the lovely Linda at Make Life Sweeter, we got to stretch our baking skills and make birthday foods for children. I made a Chocolate Marble Cake for my daughter's 9th birthday.
If you would like to participate in "Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free," make and post to your blog a gluten-free finger food between April 11th and April 25th and link back to this post.
There are two rules:
1. The recipe must be gluten-free (no wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye, triticale and emmer). Oats are acceptable, but they must be certified gluten free.
2. The food must be held in the hand to be eaten.
