My Top Ten Favorite: Blog Recipes of 2009

When I started blogging back in April, I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had no clue that a weekend spent scouring blogs for information on eating gluten-free would inspire me to start my own blog; no idea that I would become happily obsessed with my little blog and spend hours on it when I should be studying; no idea that more than eight months later, I would still be gluten-free, and no idea that I would actually have followers who weren't my relatives! If you go back to my first few blog posts, you'll notice that I also had no idea where I was going with the blog or how to take food photos. Thankfully I've learned a few things since then, like what the macro button is!

Something else I was surprised about was how many new recipes I would try this year, and how many recipes I would actually create. The blogosphere is a great place to find new recipes because everyone is always working to improve upon their recipes and share them with the rest of us. To make them better, healthier,'s one giant cookbook that's continually growing. As this year comes to a close, I thought I would share with you my top ten favorite blog recipes from this year. And since there are still so many recipes I have bookmarked, but have yet to make, I'm also including my top ten blog recipes I'm dying to try in 2010.

Top Ten Favorite Gluten-Free Blog Recipes
(In no particular order because I love them all equally)
  1. Kimberly's Snickerdoodles from Gluten Free Is Life
  2. Ellen's Cinnamon Rolls from I Am Gluten Free

  4. and Linda's Pie Crust at The Gluten Free Homemaker
  5. My own Acorn Squash Stuffing here at the Daily Dietribe
  6. Shirley's Crustless Pecan Pie at Gluten Free Easily

  8. Katie's Fudge Babies at Chocolate Covered Katie

  10. and Gena's Cashew Ricotta with Sundried Tomatoes and Basil from Choosing Raw
I'm seeing a theme here. I think someone needs a little break from the sugar.

Great listing, Iris, and I'd say that even if you hadn't included my blog. ;-) Note that the Crustless Pecan Pie recipe originally came from Cassandra at Delightfully Gluten Free. (She said the recipe came from her mom and they didn't know where it came from originally.)

Some great looking recipes here and some blogs I don't know, but now want to check out, of course! Thanks so much, Iris!


Iris said...

Thanks for the note Shirley. Not sure I know Delightfully Gluten Free, but always happy to have a new blog to read. Heading over to check it out now!

Brian said...

I meant to post a comment here awhile ago. Thank you for including one of my recipes in your top 10 to try list. If you get around to making it, let me know what you think.

Iris said...

I definitely will Brian. My boyfriend is dying to try's the first gluten-free recipe I think he's ever been excited about.
