Gluten Free Food Celebrations in February

The month of celebrations!  They are upon us already.  Chinese New Year was on Sunday, Fat Tuesday is tomorrow, Valentine’s Day is Thursday and Purim is Sunday the 24th.  Now I passed over President’s Day as I’ve never made a special meal for that but a nice cherry pie comes to mind for President Washington.

Of course there are all of the fun National celebrate holidays this month still to come:

Feb 25 – National Chili Day and National Chocolate Covered Nuts Day

Feb 26 – National Pistachio Day

Which one sare you going to celebrate?

Growing up outside of Philadelphia my eyes first went to the Sticky Bun Day.  I found this gluten free recipe that I just might have to try.  The trick is to find the gluten free recipes that keep with your easy, healthy, gluten free life!

I also rarely turn down a good margarita.  I think I’ll make my Strawberry Margarita on the 22nd.

If you are looking for some sweets don’t miss out on Shirley’s Suite of Sweets at gluten free easily or her entire website dedicate to All Gluten Free Desserts All the Time.

If you are looking for dairy free you’ll want to visit Go Dairy Free.  Many of her recipes are also gluten free but read the ingredients and directions.  Those Amazing Chocolate Mousse Cups are calling to me.

If you are celebrating Fat Tuesday with the whole New Orleans vibe you may want to give my Turducken Burgers a try or the Crustless Pecan Pie.

If you are celebrating on the 25th try my Chocolate Covered Macadamia Nuts and my 3,2,1 Chili.

Whatever day you are celebrating find the recipes that work for you.  You can use the search bar at the top right, the ingredient list on the right sidebar or the whole page dedicated to the Recipe Index.

Do you have a recipe for one of these celebrations?  If so share your link below.

Happy February everyone!

    Oh you are too sweet to include me! I've never kept up with all of those special days. I wonder how you establish one? I need a national dairy-free day 🙂
