Chicken with Olives and Peppers

No comments
After reading the description of this recipe, we knew it was going to be the perfect dinner to honour my brother. Earlier this month would have been Dan's 42nd birthday. He passed away suddenly in 2012. He is part of the reason why I started Gluten Free Edmonton.

When he passed he left us with a blog full of amazing recipes which we like to pull from to honour his memory. We searched through his Haggis and Herring blog hoping to find this specific recipe which we were not sure existing on his blog.


We only had a memory of an amazing chicken recipe with olives he would make us when we visited him Toronto.  When I read the recipe description, it put us to tears, and we knew it was the recipe we were looking for.
"My Chicken with Olives and Peppers recipe has become a standard for dinner parties and the holidays. I always keep it in my back pocket for occasions when dinner is with a friend or family member who doesn't eat cilantro (one of my favourite flavours for Friday nights)." --Dan
This is exactly when we ate this meal, on a Friday night for shabbat dinner with family and friends.

Dan liked cooking with many flavours, so we knew we were in for a treat.

Check out the Haggis and Herring for the full original recipe, because we halved the recipe and added zucchini.

You won't believe what we found inside this gluten free turkey roast

4 comments
In the past we've bought Granny's gluten free slow cooker turkey roasts, and have really enjoyed them.  They are marked gluten free and everything!  A while back I picked up another one at Safeway, found in the deli section in the freezer.  Very little shelf space so you have to pay attention closely to the freezer to see them.

Some time after we decided to make it!  So in the morning, I setup the slowcooker, put the turkey in and let it ride.

When Amanda cut into the gluten free turkey roast she was in disbelief when she found stuffing inside!

She made me recheck the photo, because she thought I picked up the wrong package.  But really, it was gluten free, and it WAS gluten free stuffing inside!  Granny's uses a gluten free corn bread stuffing.  So how bout that?

10 things you didn't know about your friend that has Celiac Disease

1 comment

1. They do not like being told what they can't eat.  However, they may ask some questions for them to determine what is safe for them to eat


via GIPHY

2. No, they can't "just have that table spoon of flour" used in that sauce

via GIPHY

3. They probably keep a bottle of gluten free soy sauce on them at all times


via GIPHY

4. Yes, they think it is outrageous that they have to pay more for gluten free bread, and no they don't want to make their own gluten free bread, because do you bake your own bread every morning? 

via GIPHY

5. They aren't trying to be annoying at a restaurant, they just want to make sure they don't get sick while enjoying an evening with you

via GIPHY

6. When they ask "can I bring anything?" when invited to your home home, it is most importantly because they are being polite.  It is an added bonus that this will ensure that they have something safe to eat without them imposing on you.

7. Not being able to eat gluten isn't that tough. But you saying "it must be tough" sure doesn't help

via GIPHY

8. Being told by wait staff "oh, a lot of our gluten free customers eat it and it doesn't bother them", is not the same as being told, the chef will prepare something safe for you.

via GIPHY

9. No, they can't just cheat

via GIPHY

10. If your friend sent you this, they are trying to tell you to stop worrying
