Cost-U-Less

Cost-U-Less is another large warehouse style supermarket as Price Smart, but there is no membership fee.   Another nice bonus is that you can receive $5 dollar vouchers off your next shop when you spend a certain amount.   It is based in Welches, St. Thomas which is a growing shopping area (and has a small fountain which delights me..!).

Personally, I love the range of vegetables here (they have jalapeno peppers and spring onions that I have not found elsewhere).   The big packs of salad and spinach are great too. They have also started to stock a variety of gluten free products in their bakery section too, which I started to notice is growing.  They have bread, wraps, cookies and cakes.    Their large bags of pecan nuts are the cheapest in town (so far as I have noticed).  Great for making pecan cookies!  I found the warehouse stores great for buying large bags of nuts to make nut butter or flour with.

The staff are friendly and very helpful.  It’s so nice to see a high level of customer service at a large store (which sadly can be lacking here).

Brown Sugar Restaurant

 

This is just amazing! AMAZING!  Not only is Brown SugarRestaurant providing a Gluten Free Buffet on a Friday, the menu is based on Barbadian food.  This is just perfect, gluten free and keeping it authentic!  I am just beyond delighted!  They even understand what gluten is and the intolerance that many people have for it.    Well done, Brown Sugar, well done!  A big round of applause for the Head Chef Madalyn Foster!  We need more of you on the island!

The details of the Friday brunch can be found on the link below.

Bread Sticks (Almond Flour)

Yes, bread sticks!  Delicious with Marinara sauce or simply by themselves…and even better..low carb and gluten free! Woohoo!  Who said being healthy has to be boring or you have to give up your favourite foods?  If eating this good is wrong, I don’t want to be right…A great thing about this mixture is that it will keep in the refrigerator, ready for you to cook up a fresh batch as when needed.  Keep it covered or in an airtight container though.

Low carb and gluten free breadsticks..These are version 3 with Mozzarella…

Yummy, tell me more Diva…

Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have tried this recipe with using just peanuts and grinding my own butter, and also with a jar of peanut butter.  The version with the ground nuts wins hands down over the already made peanut butter which I suspect is due to the oils added to the jar.  The short story is make your own peanut butter.  It’s just so simple to make and delicious too.  Throw a couple of cups of peanuts into the food processor, blitz until you have a butter.  You can sweeten it to your own taste without any nasty additives thrown in.   These are currently the number 1 cookie recipe in our house.  What amazes me is just how easy they are to make.  Although I add high cocoa chocolate chips to the mixture, these cookies would be just as delicious without them and perhaps some added seasoning.  Cinnamon perhaps?

They are just lovely the next day and seem to firm up when left in the fridge, keeping their soft centre.  The joy of cookie baking using nut butters!  Gluten free and low carb goodness in cookie form!

Coconut Chicken Skewers

This is a quick and easy to make chicken dish that can be enjoyed cold or hot.  The blend of the Thai curry sauce and coconut go wonderfully together.   A great snack for parties and also something to keep the husband quiet when he is hungry but does not want a large meal.  Although he will end up scoffing the lot.   It is so easy to make too!  I love dishes that look like you have made an effort but in truth were so easy to whip up. It can be a snack or a main dish…depending upon how many you eat!
