december to remember & gluten-free cookie exchange

I'm getting in the Christmas spirit and have decided to join Granny Sue's News and Reviews & The Pauley Principle and host a December to Remember Giveaway.   'Tis the season of merriment and gift-giving. In that spirit, I will have at least 4 giveaways this month, maybe more.  Most but not all will be gluten-free themed; they'll also be useful.  This seemed a wonderful way to thank loyal followers and welcome new ones as we enter the chilly, stay-cozy-at-home months.

To enter:
Become a follower and comment on posts.  One comment = one entry. The names will be tossed in a Santa hat.  I'll draw a name on Sundays and notify winners in a post (so everyone knows).  The winner will need to email me their snail mail address or make arrangements for in-person delivery.  Since it's on Sundays, the contest will run from today until Christmas Day.  Easy peasy lemon squeezy! 

I won't share, sell, or otherwise misuse your information, and the giveaway costs you nothing!  And I get wonderful new readers & friendies :)

In other news:  
The Cincinnati Celiac Support Group is holding the 2011 Gluten-Free Holiday Cookie Exchange and kid's cookie decorating meeting on Saturday, December 10 from 3:30 to 6 pm at: 
500 Springfield Pike
Cincinnati, Ohio 45215

All you need to do is bring gluten free cookies of your choice to share and trade with the rest of the group.  About 2 dozen cookies should be plenty, but you're welcome to bring more or fewer.  It's up to you!  But the more you bring, the more you can take home.  If you would like to share your recipes, bring multiple copies with you.

Newly diagnosed?  Not a cook?  No worries! Check your local grocer (Kroger, Meijer, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Susan's Natural World, Jungle Jim's, etc.) for pre-made cookies. 


  1. You have great GF ideas! That GF group cookie exchange should be a hit! Probably the first ever for them!

  2. It's not my idea at all, but thanks! I can't wait. They usually have about 25 people attend the December meeting and cookie exchange. (And that's your entry, lady! Thanks!!)

  3. Now all of you Pauley's have inspired me to consider doing a giveaway myself! I need to give it a little bit more thought, though. (:
    Consider this my entry!

  4. I have been inspired to make some gluten free cookies!!!!
