By now you must’ve heard of quinoa by now…the “superfood”? “Ancient grain”?? Well superfood or not, it is a great substitute for a rice and…..flour!!
I wanted to bake a homemade cake for Hitman’s birthday, so as part of our new healthier diet, I decided to make him a delicious chocolate cake made with quinoa.
I first had this when a coworker made it and brought it to work. It tasted divine. It was dense like a fudge brownie and you can feel sorta good about it as it packs a whole lotta protein. Hey if you’re gonna indulge might as well try to health it up a little right??

kiLast year my friends and I discovered the gems that are there in the $18 menu choices of Dine Out Vancouver. This year L and I continued that trend and our (well, mostly mine…my friends spoil me!!!) choice was Rocky Mountain Flatbread Company, which is mainly a pizzeria. An organic one mind you. It IS in kitschy Kits after all.
I like the fact that their Dine Out menu offerings are all available on their regular menu, which means that if I enjoyed something a lot, it wouldn’t be “limited edition”, never to be tasted or seen again (I’m talking to YOU! And YOU!!!)
Rocky Mountain basically has two large dining areas. The inner area houses the open kitchen where you can see the pizza-making people at work! We were lucky to be seated right beside the kitchen. They didn’t even have to walk out of the kitchen to serve us our food!
There they also have the pizza oven. The stone exterior is just for show though. The inside of it looks completely industrial.
