Corn-free Everyday Link Party – Jan 20, 2015

Welcome to the First Corn-free Everyday Link Party!

Corn-free Everyday is a weekly link party where people can share their allergy-free recipes, gain knowledge about allergy-related topics/issues, and have fun with corn-free crafts.

I’ve wanted to provide a corn-free link party since I started Creating Silver Linings almost a year ago. For those of us with corn allergies, having a aggregated page with all safe recipes is such a luxury.

Most link parties (even allergy-friendly ones) are limited in usefulness to those of us with corn allergies. Like a treasure hunter looking for gold, I  skim down the thumbnails of a link party and find only a handful of potentially safe recipes—if I’m lucky. It’s like looking at a restaurant menu and immediately knowing that there are only one or two items that you might get to enjoy once you’ve grilled the wait staff on the ingredients and kitchen practices.

Corn-less Tortillas

Toasted Puffy TortillaTo kick the link party off right, I’m sharing my most popular corn-free recipe, Corn-less Tortillas. This one recipe gets more hits than my home page! It’s a great corn tortilla substitute as well as a use-up for all that leftover pulp from making nut milks!

Link Party Rules & Guidelines

Here are the abbreviated rules. The full rules and guidelines are available here, including a list of hidden corn ingredients.

  1. Link a maximum of two corn-free posts: recipes, healthy living tips, or crafts.
  2. Be nice, leave a comment and visit other posts.
  3. Have fun!

The Corn-free Everyday link party will start on its regular day this Sunday. I was just too excited to wait, so this party will be a little shorter. Once the link party gets enough weekly submissions, I’ll start a weekly feature post showcasing my favorites!

    Thanks for the invitation! We try to minimize corn in our house (grains in general) so this is a great linkup idea for me!

    I was glad to share the “Cooking a Whole Chicken” recipe here. We have a good friend who is allergic to corn so this link-up is one I can relate to. I enjoyed my visit to your site. Blessings –

  10. This is a great idea for a link party! My best friend’s kids are allergic to corn, and I know it’s hard. I’ve managed to bake for them a few times, but I’m constantly texting her questions when I do. This will be great to get corn free recipes all in one place! Thanks for the invite!

    Btw, do you know if crayons are corn-free?

    (And your anti-spam filter is incredibly annoying. I’d much rather type in numbers to prove I’m not a robot than have the page tell me to say something useful for no decipherable reason. It’s actually rather insulting.)

    • Eileen,

      Crayons can have corn ingredients. The only way to be sure is to contact the manufacturer. A quick search revealed that the glue on the paper wrapper is usually corn. But you can remove the wrapper and wash the crayon before use by an allergic child.

      I would like to point out that the wax used on fruits and vegetables is usually corn as well. So I wouldn’t rule out the wax base as a source of corn on some cheaper brand crayons either. Manufacturers are constantly changing their ingredient sources. Just because it was corn-free at one time doesn’t necessarily mean it’s corn-free forever. Sigh…

      Sorry for the spam filter issue. I just started it up and I haven’t worked out all the bugs yet.

  15. Hi, Jillian. Just caught your invite today. Thanks for letting me know about the party – I’ll plan to come share the recipe on Sunday. Have a great weekend.
