You’re Invited to A Gluten-Free Holiday Progressive Dinner Party!

It’s almost the holidays!! Are you as excited (and as yet unprepared) as I am? ๐Ÿ˜€

This year, Hallie of Daily Bites had a great idea: host a progressive dinner party to provide you with some fabulous recipe ideas for your own holiday tables, making everyone’s life easier! Starting Monday, December 10th, a different blogger will offer up a fantastic recipe each day, moving from course to course one at a time. And you’re all invited!

Even better, each day the hosting blog will offer a cookbook to give away. Each day will feature a different book, so check them all out and be sure to enter to win!

Here’s the lineup (and can you guess which course I’m creating?):

Monday, December 10: Figgy Cocoa Wedges (Edible Gift–vegan) from Daily Bites Blog
Wednesday, December 12: Garlic-Roasted Mushrooms with Herbs (Side Dish-vegan) from Tasty Eats at Home
Thursday, December 13: Veggie Pot Pie (Main Dish–vegan) from She Let Them Eat Cake
Friday, December 14: Dessert from–moi, of course! (what else would I be making?).


I hope you’ll join us as we hop from “home” to home to partake of different delectable dishes, all gluten free! (Note: not every blog listed is entirely vegan, but most will offer lots of vegan options).

And to pique your interest, here’s a peek at what I’ll be serving up on December 14th (yes, Ricki actually got a blog post done in advance–don’t faint!):

Mum, we love dinner parties–guests always drop food on the floor! And I bet we can even eat this dessert, too–no chocolate!”
