A Gluten Free Holiday II: Thanksgiving Favorites

Today begins the second installment of A Gluten Free Holiday, the event created by Amy of Simply Sugar and Gluten Free.  Today’s hostess is Shirley at Gluten Free Easily–and guess what?  We get to celebrate Thanksgiving early (or, if you’re Canadian like me, AGAIN!). 

This week’s topic in the Gluten Free Holiday event is “Thanksgiving Favorites,” so head on over to Shirley’s place to see what she’s got on offer, and you can, of course, link up any of your favorite Thanksgiving foods.  She’ll also be giving away SIX fabulous cookbooks this week!

I have a wonderful new holiday recipe in store for y’all, but with life being as chaotic as it has been lately, it will have to wait until tomorrow.  In the meantime, I thought I’d repost this recipe for Chocolate Matcha Truffles since they’re a lovely, festive end to any holiday meal.  And with my unnatural affection for all things chocolate (no, silly, not “unnatural” in that way–I just meant “excessive”), I tend to look forward to them any time between October and March (See? Every month’s a holiday at the DDD household!) 😉

[Get the recipe here.]

Of course, if you’re interested in more traditional Thanksgiving fare, you can check out my previous posts listing some of my favorite Thanksgiving recipes over the years. 

Here’s Shirley’s No-Fail, Gluten Free pie crust:

To take a peek at Shirley’s foolproof recipe and enter the giveaway, just hop over to her blog. Or you could see what our other participants in the event have on offer for Thanksgiving; Alta, Carrie and Amy all have delicious dishes on their blogs today (NOTE: those of you who are here from Vegan MoFo, please note that not all the other GF Holiday participants are vegan or ACD-friendly–but they are all gluten free!).

As for the giveaway, Shirley is giving away SIX fabulous books today, so be sure to check out the fun!

Here’s what she’s giving away:

You could win one of THREE copies of Kelly Broznya’s fantastically popular The Spunky Coconut Cookbook.  This book offers delectable, easy recipes for anyone with multiple food allergies or sensitivities. I own it and just love it!

Next up is Stephanie O’Dea’s Make it Fast, Cook it Slow, her first cookbook and a New York Times bestseller. Shirley is also giving away THREE copies of this book.  Any time I can make something fast, I’m happy!

So be sure to get your (Thanksgiving) buns over to Shirley’s blog and enter to win! 🙂

  • I think everyday is a holiday with you, Ricki! That means we get to eat chocolate every day to celebrate, right? Off to Shirley’s I go!


    Ricki Reply:

    Yep, chocolate every day. (Actually, that’s been true for me lately. . . hmmm!) 😉


  • Thanks for the great “referral” post, Ricki! And, you get me every time with your truffles. I’d call you the queen of truffles, but you are the queen of so much … and not just dessert either. 😉 I’m all for celebrating Thanksgiving early and long … it’s my favorite holiday. Food, friends, and family; it doesn’t get much better than that. 🙂

    Aw, thanks so much, Shirley–you say the nicest things! 🙂 But as I mentioned earlier–I think you are the queen of blog posts!


  • sigh – we don’t even celebrate thanksgiving once but I love a bit of vicarious celebrations on the blogosphere


  • You are blogging machine woman! You always come up with the bestest toppings – the green looks amazing on these little gems. Can you please send me some creativity in the kitchen vibes?
