Naomi Devlin has already won an award for for Healthy Cooking, but we’d like to recognize her contributions to the online gluten-free community. In February 2008 Naomi began a monthly round-up of gluten-free recipes from other gluten-free bloggers like herself. This round-up is called “Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten-Free!” According to May 2009′s host, Emilia:
Each month a blog hosts this event and decides a theme, there has been numerous themes in the past including Breakfast, Slow Meals, Tea Time Treats etc. You can find links to each month’s roundup from Naomi’s blog.
And yes, all the food in this event is always gluten-free.
Emilia chose the theme of May to be Fruit Desserts. To participate, bloggers make a recipe, take a picture, and write about it on their blogs. Then they send a link to whoever the month’s host is. If they don’t have a blog, they just e-mail the host the recipe, picture, and their name. Check on the May round-up on Emilia’s blog, A Gluten Free Day. Recipes submitted include apple pie, banana dessert, orange cake, strawberry scones, Naomi Devlin’s lemon tarts… I know, they all sound amazing, don’t they?… and Emilia’s cheesecake with lemon and strawberries. And everything is gluten-free, so you don’t need to worry. Check out Naomi’s archives of “Go Ahead Honey, It’s Gluten Free!” at her website, Straight into Bed Cakefree and Dried.
Naomi’s other accomplishments include maintaining her lovely blog and practicing as a homeopath and nutritionist in Dorset. She also works with a cancer charity, “providing low cost treatment for cancer sufferers.” Her health blog, Dorset Homeopath, is full of homeopathic information, most recently on combating Swine Flu and lack of sleep.
Congratulations, Naomi, on making the GF community a little cozier, a little healthier, and a lot more fun.
