The first time I went to Kicking Horse we walked into Eagle’s Eye Restaurant and pretty much walked straight back out. You see working in the ski industry in Banff doesn’t pay too well and Eagle’s Eye looked like an expensive fine dining restaurant. We ended up eating at Whitetooth Grill at the bottom of the gondola where the chef prepared me a gluten free chicken salad.
The second time we went to Kicking Horse it was a special occasion, our last team outing before our manager left, so we decided we would splurge and eat in Eagle’s Eye restaurant. Eagle’s More >
If you regularly read my blog then you are probably aware that I love macarons (not to be confused with macaroons – see here). The great thing about macarons is that they are naturally gluten free as the main ingredients are pure icing sugar (as oposed to icing mixture which sometimes contains gluten), egg whites, sugar and almond meal.
A couple of Christmas’ ago a couple of friends and I decided to have a baking day and make macarons to give to friends and family for Christmas. I had been told that macarons were very difficult to make but we all decided we were up to the challenge. Unfortunately the macarons More >
I didn’t really eat biscuits/cookies that often before going gluten free so I don’t often look for gluten free versions. However at work one day we had an all day conference and my manager was nice enough to buy some LEDA Choc Chip & Golden Crunch Cookies.
These cookies were absolutely delicious – so much so that it wasn’t just me (the glutard) going back for more. I couldn’t even decide which flavour I liked better! They were almost too good as by the end of the day all of us felt rather ill.
The cookies are available in Coles in the More >
Yes I am one of those people that has a meal at someones house and then begs for the recipe over and over again until I get it. For this recipe I was lucky enough to be staying at my aunties house for a couple of nights so I could write it down myself guaranteeing I got it straight away.
This salad is so simple to make but it tastes delicious. If you want you can add some grilled chicken to the salad to make it a complete meal.
Another great thing about this salad is that it not only tastes great More >
Before I left Australia to go to the USA and then come to Canada (where I will be living until September) I had lots of brunch, lunch and dinner dates to say ‘au revoir’ to my friends. You see when you tell people you are going overseas in a month for a couple of years they tend to want to catch up at least once before you leave!
These farewells were a great time for me to test out all the places I had been meaning to eat at but never got around to.
One of these places was The Organic Pomegranate in More >
I need to go back to Revelstoke. Mainly because I am yet to ski there but I also found a cafe that serves gluten free wraps. To some this may not seem very exciting but I hardly ever get to eat sandwiches or wraps unless I make them myself these days.
I stumbled across Jus Juiced & Bean Caffe when driving from Kelowna to Banff. I was dropping a friend off in Revelstoke and was starving so decided to stop for lunch. I can’t remember exactly what the wrap was but it was some sort of Mexican wrap containing black beans, cheese, avocado, More >
