Weekly Round Up – April 17, 2011

Just a note about the Weekly Round-Up. I want anyone reading it to know that *I* personally find these links and visit them before including them in the list. I do use tools (mostly I subscribe to blogs with great content via RSS) so I am alerted to new posts, but this is not a blind list aggregator. I put up a list of ones I found interesting or useful each week. If you have any suggestions, please let me know in the comments or by using the form on the Contact Me page.

News:

  • Paul E. Seelig, the man who repackaged regular bread and baked goods as gluten-free and both lied to and sickened his customers, was convicted of fraud and sentenced to at least 9 years in prison and could serve up to 11 years. Seelig, despite damning testimony from Β his own employees, continued to blame his suppliers instead.

    Thanks for all the hard work, recipes and reviews, Heather πŸ™‚ I get a kick out of your blog name and header.

    I think I’m going to order some of the Two Moms in the Raw granola bars. Those looked tasty!

  • Wow, you’ve been busy reading, Maura! It’s hard to stop once you get started, isn’t it? πŸ˜‰ And then you just want to share all the goodness. πŸ™‚ Thanks so much for considering some of my posts as part of that goodness! I’ve seen most of these links, but not all, so thanks for sharing.

    Best,
    Shirley

    LOL – I’m a data miner/organizer by nature. Shows, huh?

    I know when I was first diagnosed, one of the hardest things was finding resources so I thought maybe I could use my skills to consolidate some resources and make them easier to find.

    I love your blog’s emphasis on fewer processed foods and education!

    Thanks for stopping by!

  • Hi, Maura,

    How long have you been doing this, and where in the world have I been? This is an awesome list (and I’m honored to be included in it). I’m always trying to tease out the good gluten-free blogs, but sometimes it can be very challenging to find those that are consistently good over time. Thank you for all this hard work! This is a great service to the community.

    Warm regards,
    Nicole

      Hi Nicole!

      I only started up this blog a month ago, so you haven’t missed much πŸ™‚ I’ve had many of the blogs I follow on my RSS feed for quite a while though and figured it was good to share the wealth.

      Your blog is great and I just bought your book, by the way! I hope to review it hear soon. It addresses what I think can be a very big problem for people who are newly GF which is the fact equivalent GF products can be SO expensive if you try to do a one-for-one trade.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

  • Hi Maura!

    I agree with Shirley – you’ve been busy! But then again, there’s so many great recipes out there. I see you mentioned Glow Gluten-Free Cookies, too. I know Jill, the founder of Glow Gluten-Free. She’s fabulous…she’s really put the effort into making a healthier cookie line that moms can feel good about giving their kids. Glad to see it was on Shauna’s site.

    Hugs!!

      Hi Amy,

      I’ve got a bit of a system down so it’s not many overwhelming hours on a Sunday but it can be work – which is why I thought the Round-Up might be something my fellow GF-ers could use.

      I was intrigued by the Glow cookies. My ten-year old is terribly picky though, so I might order one package at first to see what he thinks. I’m terribly guilty of the “eat what the child rejects” mom thing. I love cottage/craft industry though and love to support it and your friend Jill found a great market!

      Thanks for stopping by and hugs too!
