Sunday Snippets: October 2, 2011


Welcome to Sunday Snippets. This is a weekly feature that allows you to take a quick peek at posts that I loved from my FAT TUESDAY carnival this past week. I’ll also summarize some posts from my blog from the past week. If you missed some or didn’t have time to read the whole post this “snippet” will give you the gist of it.

Here are some articles and recipes that I picked from FAT TUESDAY that really stood out for me. Each week I’ll be featuring some links from FAT TUESDAY so be sure to link up your best posts! If you are not a blogger, this is a place to connect with fascinating writings from all over the blogosphere!

This week we had so many wonderful selections it was really hard to choose… but here are a few of my favorites!

    I love this Sunday snippet idea!  I used to miss way too much of the great stuff you have each week just due to lack of time.  Thank you!

    Thanks for the feature, Jill.  What a pretty photo you have with this post, and so much excellent information on your site.  I haven’t gone grain free yet, but have significantly reduced my grain intake.  It’s a tough transition, as I come from a family of bakers.

      Hi Laurie,
      That would be hard — in a family of bakers — on the other hand they may be able to help you convert conventional recipes to grain-free!
