Voila! A New Feature

Flowers & Herbs
I just added a new feature you may find useful. It's called Linkwithin. This gadget pulls other posts from the archives and features them at the bottom of each post entry. What I have found to be fun is, say you are looking for a dinner option or even a side dish and then voila at the bottom of the post you find a great dessert. You might find an article that I posted a week or a month ago that you missed but find relevant to you that day.  I hope you enjoy and take advantage of this new feature. Feel free to comment here on the blogspot, on facebook or shoot me an email to and tell me what you think of this new feature or the blog itself, after all it's about Gluten Free and You!

P.S. Did you notice the new poll question in the sidebar???

Gluten Free and You Delivers
I have been asked by Readers of Gluten Free and You to enable delivery of posts via email. I set this feature up a week ago, but wanted to give it a test run. After successfully receiving the most recent posts I am happy to announce that for those that wish to receive posts by email you may do so by entering your email address in the new "Follow by Email" gadget located in the sidebar courtesy of Feedburner by Blogger. As always your privacy is just that, YOURS.  The only email from GFY you will receive are new posts. Nothing will be delivered if I don't post something new.
Another new feature is the print button at the bottom of posts. This "Print Friendly" button is most useful if you would like to print a recipe or send a recipe to a friend. I hope you like and use these new features. All I ask in return is that you give credit where credit is due.  I strive to be an honest blogger and always site my sources. I want folks out there who have worked hard at creating recipes to receive the proper respect. As a blogger it is my duty and my pleasure.  As always thank you for stopping by and come again soon.
P.S. Reaction tabs located at the bottom of posts are a quick way to give feedback without taking time to comment, but comments are most appreciated. Bye for now :)

Quinoa Egg Salad

Dear Reader,
I am entering Quinoa Egg Salad in The Gluten Free Homemaker's  Monthly Challenge for June. Wish me luck on getting picked to have this recipe displayed on Linda's fabulous blog.

Recipe Tip: I made enough for one serving, but this recipe can easily be doubled even tripled.

1/2 cup cooked  and cooled quinoa
1 hard boiled egg, chopped
1 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
salt and pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a bowl and stir to desired consistency. Salt and pepper to taste, enjoy!

GFY Goes International

According to Blogger Stats the GFY blogspot has been visited by folks in 10 different countries.  A year ago this little blog began as a way to chronicle my families' adventure in gluten free living. I wanted to have a place to keep recipes that I teach my children so that someday they will feel comfortable in the kitchen and hopefully continue to enjoy foods they grew up with.

Since then I have tried to include product reviews and gluten free news in the way of current events. I never dreamed people in 10 countries would visit.  I am honored that people from so many different walks of life would read something on my blog. Spreading gluten free goodness is so much fun. As always thank you for stopping by and come again soon.

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie

From the editors of Good Housekeeping, Redbook and Country Living, a magazine called 125 Best Blender Recipes is on newsstands now. In this magazine I found a most unexpected smoothie.  My recipe was inspired by one I found in the magazine. Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie
servings 1

1 ripe banana 
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1 teaspoon creamy peanut butter
3 ice cubes
In a blender combine all ingredients and blend until mixture is smooth.

The magazine offers a tip for a thicker, colder smoothie. Use a banana that's been cut into chucks and frozen for up to a week in a sealed container.
