Four Year Blogiversary + A Giveaway!

It's hard to believe that it's been four years since I started this blog! Four years ago I was overwhelmed, excited, determined, and a bit nervous about this new gluten free thing that I had started.  It had been only about a month or two and I felt like I was being proactive in the process of my healing and support by starting his site... and I definitely was.  I couldn't come up with a name for my site, but all I could think of was how much I love food and didn't want to feel deprived- I wanted to celebrate, so that's how I became "For the Love of Food!" :)

I have learned a lot and gained so much through the gf and food blogging community and I am so grateful for having this as my home base and place to chart my progress and keep track of ideas and recipes as they come to me.

Up until now I have had thousands of visitors from over 50 countries- from Denmark to Armenia, Brunei to Singapore. I love hearing from you- whether by comment or email.

So in honor of my fourth blogiversary, I have created a new Facebook page that you can "like" and hear more from me on, as well as share your own thoughts, ideas, and questions on.

So click on "For the Love of Food" and "like" the site and hopefully this community can continue to expand in great ways.

I have also decided to have a giveaway in honor of this event because who doesn't love free things?! 

 Here are the items that I'm giving away:

This little package I'm putting together includes a great cookbook "Sweet Alternative" by Ariana Bundy, a Cherrybrook Kitchens GF Pancake and Waffle Mix, and a Bob's Red Mill GF Pancake Mix.

Receive one entry for each of the following:
(leave a separate comment for each)

  1.  "Like" For the Love of Food on Facebook and let me know in the comments on this post.
  2. Leave a separate comment letting me know what type of dish you would like to see a recipe for.
  3. Share via your blog or FB about the giveaway and let me know.
The winner will be chosen using a random generator. I can only ship to U.S. addresses at this time. The giveaway will close on October 26th, and I will announce the results shortly thereafter, so make sure you check back to see if you won!

  1. I liked on facebook! Thanks for the invite. I love blogs! I would like a recipes for a dinner for my husband. He only seems to like carrots, green peppers, and broccoli and nothing can be overcooked at all. It's an adventure cooking for him, but at least he's willing to try new stuff. I'm always trying to meat new, healthier and less 'meaty' dishes.

  2. yay nooshin!

    I liked your blog on facebook and would love to see a recipe for GF, yeast free and processed sugar free banana nut loaf!

  3. Congratulations Noosh! I'm in the UK so no giveaway for me. Of course I like your facebook page already - will pop over in a moment...

    I'd love to see some spicy curries, koresht or tagine type whatever you call them. I love me a slow cooked dish with some fragrant spices.

    Here's to the next four!

  13. Recipe idea: I have this recipe for Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal from Annie's Eats, which I made and they enjoyed, but I'm wondering how you'd modify it to eliminate butter, sugar, milk.... (-Sarah)
