Home for the Holidays. . .Gluten-Free Style!

The holiday spirit is definitely in the air. . . and today, I’m excited to tell you about a blog event in which I’m participating, called the Home for the Holidays. . . Gluten Free Style! It’s hosted by Shirley of Gluten Free Easily and will continue from now until December 23rd.

Please join me, Shirley, and 23 other gluten-free bloggers as we make  the recipes that mean both “home” and “holidays” to us. I’m sure you know the ones: one smell or one bite, and you’re enveloped in all the warmth, love, and holiday wonder of the season. Perhaps they’re recipes that have been passed down through the generations, and now you’ve succeeded in making a gluten-free version.  Or maybe they’re new, naturally gluten-free favorites. No matter what, they’re recipes you’ll enjoy sharing with family and friends.

I’ll be sharing my own “Home for the Holidays” recipe with you on Sunday, December 11th!

There’s A Giveaway Each Day–with a spectacular Grand Prize of a VitaMix Blender! 

In addition to the recipes that say Home for the Holidays, we’ll also be hosting giveaways of the resources you value the most … cookbooks, reference books, apps, and much more.

This event will take place from Monday, November 28 through Friday, December 23. The daily giveaways will be announced each day (with a quick turnaround time to enter, so be sure to follow along so you won’t miss out!). 

Every time you enter on any of the individual blogs, your entry is also eligible for each of the final prizes as well. In other words, if you enter each daily giveaway, you’ll end up with 26 entries for the final prizes!  

Final Prizes:

The third prize is a Caveman Cookies giveaway package (an $89 value)!

The second prize is a shopping spree from Free From Gluten (a $150 value)!

And the grand prize is a top-of-the-line Vita-Mix professional blender 5200 Super Healthy Lifestyle package and a free copy of the super cool e-book Eat Fresh and Detox your Life (a $560 value)! If you follow DDD regularly, you know how much I love my VitaMix! I’m thrilled that one of you can win one, too! 😀

    so this post is NOT the place to enter? sorry I am not to swift with these things. but I like them. looks like fun!

    Right–this is just an announcement post with all the info in one place. There’s a different blog posting a recipe, with a new giveaway, each day. You have to go to the blog of the day (see the list of blogs) to enter for that particular giveaway. And any time you enter the giveaway at one of the blogs, your entry ALSO counts as an entry for the three final prizes. Hope that makes sense!

    I would love to enter but do I need to go to each of these blogs or how do I enter? Thanks!

    Yes, each day the blog of the day offers a different set of prizes. If you enter on any one of the individual blogs, you’re entered for those prizes–and also automatically entered for the three final prizes as well (so the entry does “double duty”–it counts for that blog AND the final prizes). In other words, if you enter today’s blog (The Whole Gang–see list below), you could win one of the books she’s giving away, AND your entry also counts for the final three prizes as well (announced at the end of the event). So, theoretically, if you entered on each of the 25 blogs over the next few weeks, you’d have 25 entries for the final prizes as well. Does that make more sense?

    Bitt, next to each day on the schedule is a link to the site. Go to each day’s site to enter. For 11/29, go to Diane Eblin’s site, The WHOLE Gang. 🙂

    Yep, exactly! 😀


  • Ricki, thanks for this beautiful announcement on our holiday event! I get excited anew each time I see a new post, FB mention, tweet, etc. 🙂 I’m so happy that you’re participating with the rest of us, and, of course, I can’t wait to see what you create! 😉
