My mom brought over a couple packs of these. We had both seen them appear on the shelves of a couple stores but they were on the expensive side. Luckily they went on sale for 2 boxes for $5 so a good time to try em!
We cracked open a box and shared one. The texture was great. Light and crunchy and crispy. I haven’t had a real Breton cracker in a couple of years but from what I remember, these gfree ones taste JUST like that!
Its a good size too. Especially if you are like my mom and I who are always trying to cram meats and cheeses on top of a tiny rice cracker! This is a nice change- more room for toppings!
If you spot these in a store near you, give them a try and let me know what you think!
The Works. I looked at their menu online for what seemed like hours in preparation of our dinner. There were FIFTY burgers to choose from. Insane!
I narrowed down my list to 6 before I got there, and then I ended up picking a completely different burger at the last minute lol One of the local favourites.
It was awesome! I LOVE avocado and this had tons on it! The burgers were thick and juicy and tons of flavor. It was one of the best burgs I’ve had in a long time.
And the best news (for a gfree girl like me) was that they have gluten free buns. And I’ve tried a few in my day, most of which were basically hockey pucks. Not this bun! It was so soft- I honestly couldn’t even tell it was gfree. It was awesome.
The atmosphere was great in there, love the fun décor. They even had the big window open to the street (it was a nice evening) so you could do lots of people watching (which I love!)
Prices were great, and I hear they have gfree gravy so I’m definitely going to check out a big huge poutine the next time we go 🙂
Roasted vegetables are a fall treasure.Peppers,Tomatoes and Eggplant are some of the veg that roast well.Broccoli and Cauliflower are also stars in the oven.
This recipe is great for a side dish with fish,chicken or any meat.

Last week I was sick ALL week long with a bad cold. It was horrible. I had no appetite at all but would get some odd cravings and that’s all I wanted to eat and couldn’t think of anything else. I’m usually that way when I’m sick. And most often the only thing I can think of eating is something fresh. Usually some kind of fruit. Last week I survived primarily off of peaches.
Then I had this craving. For animal crackers. Which are cookies, so I have no idea why they are called crackers…. but I digress.
I needed to have them. I wanted that arrowroot flavour in tiny animal shaped form. I hunted down some gluten free ones that are awesome and satisfied me! Mi-Del Gluten Free Arrowroot cookies- that just happen to be in the shape of animals 🙂
If you ever get the same craving as I did, you should try these. They are really awesome.

I woke up one day earlier this week with a HUGE craving for one of those crunchy peanut butter granola bars (that came in a pack of two) that I always enjoyed as a kid. No idea where it came from, but the craving was strong.
I hunted around at the store to see if there was anything that was similar, sans gluten. I found something! Nature’s Path Organic makes a line of the crunch granola bars. Even more awesome, is they have a peanut butter one too! They are non-gmo (which of course I love!) and they dont contain any wheat. Because some are labelled as “gluten free” and some aren’t (these ones arent) I read the ingredients list over and over again just to be sure but they seem good to go! I don’t seen any gluten in there!
I know oats are a hit or miss for some people avoiding gluten but they seem to be okay for me.
I have tried the peanut choco flavour as well as the apple pie chia flavour and both are awesome! I hear the pumpkin pie one is really great too, and since its almost fall- I think that one will be making an appearance in my kitchen soon.
