This weeks find Childrens bubble bath and lotion

This week I found 2 new products while shopping at Thrifty foods . Bubble bath and lotion for children . The products are made by Nature Clean and are wheat and gluten free . The bubble bath has a nice scent but I was a little disappointed in the bubbles . They didn't stick around very long . The lotion on the other hand is great . Makes hands silky , is 99.7% natural and is odor less  . Gentle enough to use on babies and for sensitive skin . Lotion 2 thumbs up but pass on the bubble bath .

This weeks finds

So this year I decided to do some weekly finds . One of my favorite little shops to go to is the Food Warehouse on west 1st street right off of Lonsdale . I popped in there while hubby was getting comics and took K with me . We love poking around in there . They have unique treats and foods from many different backgrounds .

This week I found some amazing noodles . They are made by the King Soba company in a dedicated gluten free facility WOO HOOOO ! They were about $4 for the bag . I picked up Pumpkin Ginger Rice noodles and Sweet potato & Buckwheat noodles . I tried out the Sweet potato ones that night with some marinara sauce & chicken . They were nice . The flavor wasn't overpowering and they cooked quickly . Like in 4 minutes which is awesome .  I am going to give this weeks find 4 stars .

Also I want to thank the Blue Diamond company http://www.bluediamond.com/ for coming out with some wheat/gluten free crackers  . They proudly support the Celiac Disease society . They have a line of nut & rice crackers which are excellent . I am fond of the chedder ones and so is the rest of my family  ( I think next time 2 boxes are needed ). I found these at Pricemart and the Food Warehouse for around $4

Also it seems my lactose intolerance has some what decreased as I have been able to reintroduce some dairy products back into my lifestyle . This makes me extremely happy as I have a love of dairy .

Has anyone else found some hidden gluten free jems ?

Butterscotch Buns

Every Christmas morning I make these buns for my family. Its my contribution to breakfast . Unfortunately I was too busy and forgot to take a photo of the final result they turned out well for a gluten free version.

Dough Ingredients:

1 cup bobs red mill biscuit & baking flour
1/4 + 1/4 cup cornstarch
2 tbsp sugar
4 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup rice milk

Filling :
1/3 cup butter
3/4 cup brown sugar

You will need a muffin pan or two .

Mix all ingredients from dough together starting with all the dry ingredients then adding the butter then milk. If using a electric mixer it take about 3-5 minutes of mixing. Place in fridge for 1-2 hours.

Preheat oven to 300 f .

pre-baked roll

Remove from fridge and knead 10 times. Place cling wrap on your rolling surface. This will help in the rolling process. You also need to dust it with flour. I used rice four. Once rolled out in a rectangle 8x10ish mix the filling together and spread over the dough. Once covered gently start rolling down to form a long roll. Cut roll into 1 1/2 " - 2" thick and place in muffin cups . Bake for 20-30 minutes but keep an eye on them . Once they are browned take them out.

These are a biscuit like bun and are great for breakfast or a quick snack . Would also be good with frosting.

Happy test kitchen everyone and happy 2011!
