Welcome to the December 2011 Go Ahead Honey It's Gluten-Free. This is a gluten-free blog carnival that has been going for several years! All recipes are gluten-free and you can see past recipes at Naomi Devlin's Straight Into Bed Cakefree and Dried. This months theme is Dips and Dippers, perfect for New Year's cocktail parties.
The first entree is 7-Layer Mediterranean Dip from Our Gluten-Free Reality. This mother and daughter gluten-free duo tempt us with refreshing and zesty flavors from the sunny Mediterranean:
Luckily they decided to multi-dip with Grape Salsa, what a great way to make the holiday bright:
And this one, Christmas Salsa, which they described as "a totally different flavor, almost a chutney, but raw, powerful flavor":
Lisa, from Allergy-Free Vintage Cookery, brings her Spicy Red Pepper Dip to the party:
Andy, from The Rice of Life, offers Baked Vegan Taquitos that are also dairy and soy-free:

Stephanie, the Dairy Free Diva has this new take on the traditiional cheeseball: "Gluten-Free Goats Milk Cheese Ball with Bacon and Olives":

I am also double dipping, this is Hawaiian Dip, which is a cinch to throw together:
Here's another take on hummus, Roasted Garlic Lentil Hummus Dip from Amber's The Tasty Alternative. It is also SCD friendly:
Have a wonderful New Year. Be sure to check out She Let Them Eat Cake in January. Maggie is hosting and her theme is Foods That Heal.
