Welcome to this weeks Seasonal Sunday!
I decided after much thought that highlighting just one blogger each week was not cutting it. Many wonderful recipes are shared each sunday and in return I really want to share some additional link love!
Therefore- A Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, Dessert + a Bonus Recipe from the previous week will be highlighted instead. As Seasonal Sunday grows so will the number of highlighted recipes.
So with that being said- lets get started.
This week I'm excited to share a recipe that fits nicely into the April in the Raw Theme! This recipe is a healthy and simple take on a spring and summer favorite.. ICE CREAM!
(and Speaking of April in the Raw- Be sure to check out Gluten Free Gigi's Post today- she's put together something simple yet spectacular! Follow along the next few days at the following sites. Check back on Friday for a recap of this week!
And now.. Its your turn!
- Recipes must contain one Seasonal Ingredient (See below for the list of foods that are currently in season)
- You may link up old or new recipes. Wonderful food is always worth sharing! Feel free to share up to 6 recipes each week.
- Gluten Free Recipes are NOT required- this event is meant to inspire ideas for all. However I do ask that if your recipe is Gluten Free that you give it the “GF” Label.
- Please include a link in your blog in reference to Seasonal Sundays so that your readers may also participate.

If you plan to attend the Gluten and Allergen Free Expo in Chicago in 2 weeks stop by the Main Public Stage on Saturday from 1-1:30 ( April 30th) as I will be doing a fun little demo on how to create Classic Chicago Deep Dish Pizza- Gluten/Dairy/Egg Free!
AND if you happen to run into handsome Film producer named Rich Angell with PBS- Feel Free to say hello to him as well! (He of course is the love of my life/ husband) We are very excited that PBS is able to play a role in helping this Gluten and Allergy Free Community gain a little extra exposure!
It's going to be a wonderful weekend- and both Rich and I look forward to meeting many of you! If you have not already be sure to check out the Expo Website AND make sure to Sign up for the classes as the spots are almost filled!
We will Also be in D.C for the 1 in 133 Summit on May 4th. Did you know that any company can slap a "Gluten Free" label on their product. This means that a product can literally contain small amounts of Gluten- yet carry a Gluten Free label. For those with Celiac's and Extreme Sensitivities this is a a matter of severe sickness or good health. If you have not checked out the 1 in 133 Site - give it a read and make sure to sign the petition.
Happy Sunday Everyone!
