Topics I've Started

Frankie's In Uxbridge Ontario

22 July 2011 - 03:24 PM

Anyone ever tried Frankie's?

Its in Uxbridge, just a bit northeast of the Greater Toronto Area.
They have french press style teas and coffees served table side, as well as over 3 dozen different alcohol choices, including some fantastic wines. Its almost all locally sourced when in season and they have been getting great accolades from the Celiac Society. They also own and serve some amazing things from Frankie's Bakery, which is just down the street. Things like sticky toffee pudding and an amazing carrot cake.

Worth a drive if you live near it. Its a completely gluten and nut free restaurant, so no special menu. Its fun to order and not have to explain anything. On their website is the story of how Frankie's came to be, including many family members with multiple allergies. Its a great story and such a positive way to overcome.

We go about once a month, its not crazily priced and their panini's are unbelievable. My favourite so far was the three cheese panini, and the chocolate mint gelato. I also had some amazing wine there from Spain.

The atmosphere is like a pretty bistro, with a chalkboard posting some desserts and specials.

Anywho, I am rambling. Just excited, its been 4 months since I found them and I am still impressed :-)

The Holy Crap Cereal

21 July 2011 - 06:42 PM

Thinking of ordering some of this cereal for an upcoming trip to New Zealand. We will be travelling in a small camper van, but it has some storage and a fridge.

The idea of waking up and eating this quickly before starting my day sounds amazing. It was on the Dragons Den, a rerun I caught this week and I was just wondering if anyone has heard of it?

Its called 'Holy Crap'...which makes me giggle to boot! By a Canadian couple, out in British Columbia.

This list was what got me interested...

Gluten free
Lactose free
Wheat free
Sugar free
Nut free
All natural
Vegan
Contains 8 full servings
No cooking required

Its also GMO free, and you only need 2 Tbsp's. I hope its not too good to be true.

If anyone has tried it please post, I would love to hear from you.
