Karyn said...

Woo Hoo! I am so happy you won! That is my super favorite "go to" recipe, too.

Hey, Sparky is a cutie!

Congratulations on the win!

Laura said...

Awe, Sparky is so cute! Congrats again, you were my choice! (Now I just need to make that recipe!)

Jen said...

Congratulations!
Its great to see gluten-free win and become a bit more mainstream. I personally cannot wait to try this recipe (live in a dorm so cooking in the communal kitchen is not really an option...too many crumbs floating around) but I will certainly make it as soon as possible.
Love the other recipes i have tried here!

Barbara said...

Congrats! You are a fabulous chef. This recipe was great and so are your others. You have been a life saver to a new GF/dairy/soy/corn intolerant gal. Keep up the great work, words, and sense of humor. It all gives me encouragement each day.
Barbara

sfleisher said...

Congrats! It's so great that gluten free and celiac is being publicized and the more awareness we get, the better everyone is for!!!! It is also nice to show the world that gluten free doesn't have to taste disgusting!!

Elisa said...

Congratulations! That's fantastic! And that recipe sounds fabulous - if only my family enjoyed sweet potatoes, I might get to try it :-( *sigh*

Cathy said...

Congrats! I love your recipes and your blog! Keep up the great work!

Simple and Divine said...

SO COOL! :) CONGRATS! THOSE ENCHALADAS LOOK OUTSTANDING, Too! You totally deserve all of this and more! Cheers to bigger and better things for Karina's Kitchen! :)

-PS- What did YOU winn for this?!

Rachel said...

Congratulations! I read and voted for your recipe and made a note that I wanted to try it. I haven't had enchiladas since I went GF. Tonight a friend called who is having us for dinner and she was telling me about this cool sweet potato and black bean recipe she found on the WF site and that maybe she could make it when we come to dinner. I'm excited to try it next week!

celticjig said...

Go Gluten Free and Go Sparky! I had a stuffed mountain goat named Moses once and he was a bit dusty so I threw him in the wash and his long "fur" shrunk and now he is a big horned sheep. I still feel guilty.

DMarie said...

Congratulations! I can't wait to try this recipe - it looks so yummy! I have loved all of your recipes that I have tried so far (as does my non GF co-worker - I bring her samples). :-) I would have never thought to pair black beans with sweet potatoes - but reading the recipe - it sounds like a wonderful combination.

roberta said...

I can't believe healthy and gluten-free can be so delicious! As a Mexican-American, I have been mostly disappointed in healthy versions of the food I grew up with, but I am discovering some wonderful alternatives here on your blog...followed the link from your win at Whole Foods, congratulations!

jill elise said...

Congrats! I just saw that on the WF site and thought, "oh yay!"

Katerina said...

Congratulations! Funny, my favorite enchilada recipe is also sweet potato and black beans but is totally different! I will have to give yours a try.

Lauren Denneson said...

Congratulations! That is awesome news! I was certainly pulling for you :)

Mia said...

Congrats!!! I love trying out your recipes even though I rarely comment on them. What a way to go!!!!

Laura said...

Congratulations on your winning recipe. I can't wait to try it!

I also thank you for sharing your gluten-free creations. My gluten-intolerant husband appreciates you too!

chocolatechic said...

Congratulations.

You have no idea how much your blog has helped me help my 16 year old daughter.

You have been a blessing.

Morgan said...

Congratulations! The recipe was sooo good, too! You definitely deserved it.

Fresh and Feisty said...

Very happy for you. I've been trying to accept the fact that wheat and dairy give me really bad random headaches and sugar isn't a whole lot nicer to me. I wish it was digestive or happened all the time. Then I might not be so tempted to cheat. Your recipes help though!

noosh. said...

congratulations karina!! how exciting! this is definitely my favorite recipe of yours, so i'm so glad it will be shared with so many more people now.

I am so excited to try this recipe. As a grad student with a gluten allergy living on a budget, this is the perfect recipe for me! Thank you so much for creating it and this wonderful website. It has been incredibly helpful.

raidar said...

Congrats..They look delicious!

Abigail said...

I was so excited when I saw this on the Whole Foods website. My boyfriend is vegetarian. Between my celiac & other food allergies and his being vegetarian we have a hard time coming up with a whole meal that satisfies us both. I haven't had a chance to try this yet, but I'm looking forward to with enthusiasm. Of course I voted for this and I'm so glad you won. Thanks for bringing awareness to celiac and the fact that gluten free food can taste as amazing as gluten containing food.

Karen said...

YUMBO!!!!! Thanks so much. -- Karen M. in Charlottesville

dasparky said...

Hooray!!! Go, you!

(p.s. I've got your cookbook on my Farm Natters wish list *grin*)

Jessie said...

Hi Karina, this is my first time posting (nothing like a possibility of a gift certificate as positive motivation...) - I've tried a bunch of your recipes and really enjoyed them. And I voted for you in the Whole Foods contest because of that. So, whether I get picked in your giveaway or not, the most important part of this comment is to say CONGRATULATIONS to you. You really deserve it.

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

Congrats, Karina! Can't wait to try the winning recipe.

Cynthia said...

Great news! Always enjoy your blog and creative recipes. You deserved to win!

Hey I like Sparky! Haven't seen him before. Congrats - and wonder what happened with the south beach diet. Your comments about hormonal changes and weight were right on for me too.

Jess said...

Considering I love sweet potatoes AND enchiladas, this will be something I'll be making next week after I go shopping! Thanks for all your hard work in gluten-free cooking.

glutenfreeislife said...

Congrats to you Karina! You deserve it! What a great win! :)

Kim

Stacey said...

Congrats!!

I actually saw your recipe and voted on the Whole Foods site without ever having read your blog. In the two weeks following I was tested for possibly causes of some osteopenia at only 30 years old and came back for gluten-intolerance. How prophetic! LOL!

Now, I am pouring over your website and already made your Chocolate Chip Cookie Bars and Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas. They were both awesome! Thank you so much for your blog! It's been a lifesaver!

blessed-harlot said...

Oh yay! That enchilada recipe looks so delicious.

Karina, I discovered my wheat allergy in February of this year, and your blog has been such an awesome source of support for me. Thank you!

Kate said...

Sounds great - I can't wait to try them!

Michelle said...

Karina,

Renee said...

Karina -

That's awesome! I had just checked the WF website the other day to see if they had announced that YOU were the winner yet.

This recipe is awesome - I made it down here in Albuquerque for our midwestern visitors that were in town for the balloon fiesta - it was awesome! And they liked the yummy NM green chile too. We had some of the filling leftover and started eating it with corn chips while we were waiting on the oven and that was good too!

Congrats!
Renee

Jenn said...

Karina,
Congratulations on your win! The recipe sounds great and is now in my pile of recipes to try. I haven't cooked with arrowroot starch before - in fact I don't think I've ever seen it in the store - where do you pick it up and do you think there is a more available substitute?
Jenn

Claire Berman said...

Congratulations, Karina! I'm so glad that your recipe won, and I can't wait to try this recipe very soon. I love your blog and have tried several of your recipes so far, and they've all been wonderful. I can't wait to try more of them!

this is my first week on a wheat-free diet, and i have been SO happy with this site. so happy that i've been looking at yummy recipes and not working all week... oops :) this is my first post and i just want to express how grateful i am for it! wheat free does NOT equal boring.

Alyssa said...

Great job. Can't wait to try the recipe.

Jessica said...

Congratulations, Karina!! :)

I have been an avid reader of your site since stumbling upon the link during my countless hours of Google research.

All I can say is THANK YOU.

I was diagnosed with food allergies (corn, wheat, barley, rye, oats, tuna, pork, hazelnuts - phew!) in August of '07. After a few months of plain veggies, protein and brown rice, I knew there had to be a better way. I found you in the nick of time.

For your recipe, could you recommend any substitutions for the beans? (I know that somewhat defeats the purpose of the recipe, but I don't tolerate members of the bean family really well.)

Thanks, Karina! Again, congratulations!

Lauren said...

Hooray! Many congrats. :)

Kimberlee and Mark said...

congrats. I am so glad to see people taking such an active interest in celiac and our nutrition needs. It's wonderful that you won! I wish you many blessings in the future!

Yay, way to go! I don't comment on your site very often, but I always read it. Though I'm not a celiac, one of my close friends is. I love to help her find recipes and meals she can eat without worry!

Thanks Karina!

(Also, I've posted a link to your site on my blog Adventures with Basil, I hope that's alright. Let me know if it isn't!)

Congratulations, Karina! It's a victory for all Celiac and gluten sensitive folks. What a fabulous way to raise awareness for gluten free living! I look forward to more recipes.

As I stated in my comment on the Whole Foods blog, your recipes have cut my grocery bill by about 25-30%; the proof is in my wallet! I make at least one of your recipes each week, many of them already incorporated into the regular routine at the request of my non-gluten free husband. Way to go!

erica said...

Congratulations. I love your blog and recipes. You have a great voice. I also love the little comments you throw in about New Mexico. I lived in Northern New Mexico for three years before leaving for the Oregon Coast 20 months ago. I don't miss New Mexico as a whole, but there are little pieces that I do miss a lot. I hope you're able to make the move you're seeking soon.

Martha said...

Anyway, you deserve this win. Proud of you!

Of anyone I know, or know of, you deserve this award! All your recipes are fabulous! I love the photography and the fact that I can trust them to be gluten free and some soy and dairy free just makes me want to jump for joy! and Cook!!!

Thanks for all you do!

Congratulations! You deserve it, not only for inspiring the GF crowd but our friends as well--your blog is so pretty that my friends have taken to getting recipes off it not only for me but for their own families!

Yaaaaay!!! We are all so proud for you (and happy that we helped - just a bit) How nice that we could help you, given how very much your GF/CF recipes have helped us.

My family is so very thankful to have you in our lives (and kitchen)! You were there last night, tonight, and again tomorrow night. We are so appreciative and concur with your words and thoughts - be they focused on politics, the beauty/harshness of New Mexico, the joy of family and friends, the trials of changed diets, multitudinous Goddess blessings, or just the love of good food!

I have been a fan since the days of your earlier cookbooks, and happened upon your blog after my husband & daughter needed to change their diets. I was overwhelmed. And suddenly, there you were. She works in mysterious ways.

Congratulations, Karina! We are so happy for you!
