Go ahead honey, it’s gluten free! is a monthly event where gluten free dishes revolving around a theme are submitted by bloggers and other foodies and then the round up of the entries are all published on a blog.


The event was started by the lovely Naomi of Straight into Bed Cakefree and Dried. It is hosted by a different blogger each month and this month it is hosted by me. (I have been so busy lately I haven’t had time to host the neighbor in for coffee so I am happy to be doing this.)

Last month it was hosted by Emilia of A Gluten-free Day and you can pop over there for the round up of May’s entries.

ANYONE CAN ENTER – you don’t have to have a gluten-free blog but the entries must of course be gluten-free. You don’t even have to have a blog. You can send a recipe and a photo and I will enter it. (As a side note I am very competitive by nature even when there is no reason to be so I would like it very much if this month’s event had the MOST ENTRIES EVER! So don’t be shy – enter!)

Also, let me take this opportunity to say that I, for one, believe that there is no reason why the gluten-free blog world and the rest of the food blog world should not do a little more co-mingling. I would love to see gluten-free entries from those of you out there who are not specifically gluten-free. After all, you never know when a celiac may show up to your house for dinner.


Post your blog entries and then send me a link of the post as well as another copy of the photo. If you don’t have a blog, send me the recipe and a photo.

Make sure you link back to THIS post in your blog post, featuring the recipe and stating in the post that this is your submission for June’s Go ahead honey, it’s gluten-free! event.

Send links, photos and entries to : [email protected]


The deadline is Friday, June 26th, midnight Eastern Standard Time (US) to have your blog posts done and the links, etc sent to me.

The roundup will be published on my blog on Monday, June 29th.


Because it is fun, informative and good exposure for your blog.

OKAY, now for the THEME!

In the Northern Hemisphere, June is the start of summer. And summer brings to my mind barbecues, baseball and Hugh Jackman (seriously, have you seen Wolverine?) June is also the month we celebrate Father’s Day here in America. So with fathers and Hugh Jackman on my mind I have decided that the theme for June is (drum roll, please) …


I want to celebrate all the dads, brothers, uncles, sons, nephews, grandfathers, husbands, boyfriends, man-friends and of course Hugh Jackman.

Your entry can be in any category – starters, drinks, main dishes, sides, desserts – just make it manly – whatever your concept is of that is just so long as it is gluten free.

So go ahead honey, it’s gluten-free!

I’ve seen this blog event all over the place, but have never participated. I will try me best to join in this month! :) Thanks for hosting!

What a fun theme. I love it. I wonder though, my husband will eat almost anything, manly or not. I have a gluten free blog but many of my readers are not. Does that count? Can we send you more than one link? This sounds like a really fun round up. I like that it’s once a month. I have a weekly Friday Foodie Fix. I hope you’ll join in. This week’s secret ingredient is quinoa. You can post the link to old or new recipes, as long as they’re yours. Now to start planning my monthly menu with Manly food!


Thomas Dzomba May 28, 2009 at 6:33 am

I will certainly do my best to join in. Thanks for hosting – sounds like fun!


RecipeGirl May 28, 2009 at 7:11 am

You know what? I’ve never made a recipe that is knowingly gluten free :) I’m willing to give it a shot though. Things are pretty busy around here getting ready for summer vacation, but I’ll see if I can come up w/ something for the event.


anudivya May 28, 2009 at 9:53 pm

I have participated in this even before, it was hosted by someone else though. I would love to send in some to you too!
Let me see if I can make something presentable :)


Sophie May 29, 2009 at 6:51 am

Yes!! I love manly food :). I am so participating — thanks so much for the invite and for stopping by my blog :D.


Rachel May 29, 2009 at 9:44 am

This is a fun theme. Maybe I’ll cook something on my automobile radiator! Manly enough?

I’ll get my thinking cap on.


Naomi Devlin May 29, 2009 at 1:04 pm

Mmmm, I’m thinking Clooney Burgers…..or maybe Jonnie (Depp) Cakes? Great theme and fantastic post. I can’t wait to cook up something manly. x x x

Great theme, Carol! ;-)

I like Rachel’s comment. I immediately thought of a friend who really used to heat up his sandwich on his radiator. LOL



Steph May 29, 2009 at 9:00 pm

Mmm, Hugh Jackman….definitely the start of summer :)
I’m racking my brain trying to come up with something manly. This should be interesting!


Helene May 29, 2009 at 9:47 pm

This is an interesting theme. I’ll have a look at my recipes. :)


mb May 30, 2009 at 10:09 am

Hi Carol. I do cook (occasionally) but very little (usually just some Saturdays and Sundays – I do have a different lifestyle I guess) and almost never anything that would contain gluten anyway (i.e. veggies and meat). Maybe that makes it fit the manly theme! Me and recipes – a little scary for public scrutiny! :-)


Sheltie Girl May 31, 2009 at 8:55 pm

This a great theme for GAHIGF. I’ll have to think about what sends my men over the top.

Those crab cakes look like they have been suspended in the air, well almost, unless I am taking a closer look at it. Nice click.


Mama Kat June 7, 2009 at 10:40 pm

Oooh I definitely want to get in on this!! I'll have to think of a good one!


lifesdelights June 8, 2009 at 6:28 am

Thanks for the invite! I've already started thinking about making something sweet to mail to my step-father for Father's Day. He isn't gluten-free, but has colitis and I've been trying to help steer him away from gluten.

I'll be making a dessert, but will try to come up with something manly too. :)



withoutadornment June 8, 2009 at 6:45 am

Thanks for stopping by my blog – I am really excited to try out this challenge! I'm sure my husband will like it, too!

It sounds fun and I will make every effort to contribute. :) Love your site; I would very much like to exchange blog links to each other's sites with you. Please e-mail me at: [email protected] if you are interested.

Cinde :)


Cinde June 8, 2009 at 8:42 am

Hi Carol… it's Cinde again. I forgot to leave you the address to my Gluten Free Taste of Home blog in my last post:


Cinde :)


Danielle M June 8, 2009 at 4:05 pm

I'm in! Carol, thanks for inviting me and for being the first official visitor to my blog – http://nofooddiet.wordpress.com/.

As a new blogger, I'm excited to join the gluten-free and food-conscious blogging community!


Chaya the Comfy Cook June 9, 2009 at 7:44 am

Thanks for including me. I am particularly excited about being involved in sharing a "manly food". Hubby is going to love this since I am thinking of three recipes that I consider 'manly".

Looking forward to being part of the blogging world.



Chaya the Comfy Cook June 9, 2009 at 7:49 am

ALERT: I just sent you a comment and the address that is appearing on that one and this one is WRONG.

My blog is http://comfycook.wordpress.com

My email is [email protected]

I am trying to get this fixed. Hopefully, I can return with the proper info. Sorry about this.



comfycook June 9, 2009 at 9:22 am

I am hoping this will show the right address. Please delete my other post clarifying my problem. Sorry to misuse your blog but I am so frustrated and I do want to respond to your post. Chaya

Thanks for the invite! I'd love to participate :) I'm down with the manly theme!


Cheryl June 27, 2009 at 3:34 pm

I know I am a day late and I don't have a pic but I looked at a couple of others and they don't either.


Maybe you can use it as is, it's all about frying GF which is how my man rolls-lol I also have a number of other GF recipes on the site.

Love the monthly post idea.


Rumela September 24, 2009 at 3:47 am

Wow!! What a fun theme you have chosen :)

I’ll surely participate, if only I have the time for it. I’ll combine that trip with making a post about some of the food we’ll take with us. thank you for shearing your post.
