XGFX.org, Spanish Tortilla, and Second Chances

What's with all this frequent blogging, eh? I'll go back to being a lazy blogger soon, but first I want to share fantastical link with you. In case you've been living under a rock, yesterday was the grand opening of xgfx.org, which is an all vegan and gluten-free website created by three beautiful ladies!

A few of my favorite things about xgfx.org:

100 recipe links you should know about.
Gluten-free product reviews.
A gluten-free flour guide.
The community driven recipe section...
... where you can find a recipe for vegan chocolate-hazelnut butter!

And since we're talking about the recipes, check out my humble contribution to the database: Spanish Tortilla.

Spanish Tortilla
I originally made this Spanish Tortilla (potato omelet)
for my guest post @ Go Dairy Free last month. Thank you again, Alisa!

Now go check out xgfx.org! It's an awesome site! And speaking of awesome, VegNews has apologized and promised to never use meaty pictures again. That's all most of us wanted. I'm a fan of second chances!

  1. Gluten free flour guide? Product reviews? Spanish tortilla? I'm IN.

    By the way, I saw that recipe on GDF, and remember thinking "oh I see she can blog on other blogs but not her own."

    I tease.

  8. Your Spanish tortilla looks amazing and it's making me wish I had one right now. I haven't paid much attention to gluten-free cooking before now, but seeing xgfx.org is making me want to try some gluten-free baked goods.

  9. Lovely Tortilla :-). Is there a reason why so many vegan site are also gluten free? Is it due to allergies or something else? Or maybe is just the US, I don't seem to find this topic so much in the rest of the virtual world.

    ciao and thank you for sharing.

  10. Woot for xgfx tortilla. I love anything potatoes!

    Alas, when I am in Denver I shall be strictly city-bound. I am solo and don't know anyone there to take me to the mountains. I shall have to peer out the window as the plane crosses them!

    Sahara accepts your snorgles. ;)

  15. Ciao and thank you for your answer :-).

    Well, just in case, I do have a lot of gluten free recipes, not because I plan about it, it just happens... probably because I eat mostly vegetables :-).

    Have a happy Easter

    ciao

  16. Oh dear. That tortilla looks amazing!

    I'm also a fan of second chances. It was absolutely wrong what VegNews did but we have to keep in mind that it is a great magazine with lots of useful tips and recipes...
