Go Ahead Honey, It's Gluten Free: Announcing April's Theme

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.

- Post URL
- Optional: Picture of your Finger Food (150 x 150 pixels in jpg/jpeg format)

I will post the round-up on the April 28th. Happy Cooking!

Oh fun! Sign me up. Can the finger foods be camp treats/sweets? (Not cookies, though) or just savories?

Hmm, so the post has to have been posted between April 11th and the 25th or is that just when we can submit it? I have a wonderful entry, but I posted it 2 days ago....Sounds like a great round-up though!

Kate - You GF Finger Foods can be either sweet or savory. It doesn't matter, as long as your gf foods are held in the hand to be eaten.

I can't wait to see what delicious recipe you create.

Hi Peanut Butter Boy - The posting and round up days were set so that it wouldn't coincide with The Adopt A Gluten Free Blogger Event that ends towards the beginning of April.

Since you are interested in participating, simply email me with all the information about your post and I'll be happy to include you in the round up.
