.Bread rolls that are not really bread.

I decided to make some "bread rolls" today. I'm not really sure something that does not contain any flour or yeast can be classified as bread, so I added the quotation marks around the words. When I was first diagnosed with wheat allergy, my first concern was not being able to eat bread anymore. This recipe for flourless bread rolls has been a life saver! My husband is so in love with them that he constantly asks me to make some and prefers them to normal bread.

These are not very low-calorie rolls but eating just one makes you feel full and keeps the hunger away for many hours, so I don't think they are the worst thing you could put in your mouth. Nuts and seeds are also healthy and have a good nutritional value, so in my opinion these are better for you than the normal white bread rolls.

"Bread rolls"

Makes 8

200 g (7 oz) cheese, grated (I like using mozzarella or Emmental)
2-3 eggs
2 carrots, grated
1 apple, grated
2.5 dl (1 cup) ground nuts (about 200g, almonds and peanuts are both good, cashew nuts work amazingly as well)
2 dl (0.8 cup) ground flaxseed
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat your oven to 250 degrees C (485 F).

Mix the ground nuts, flaxseed and baking powder. Add all the other ingredients, eggs one at a time. You should be able to make balls of the mixture, so add the third egg if it doesn't hold together, crumbles and feels too dry.

Make 8 balls of the mixture and place them onto a lined baking tray. Press them down slightly. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until the cheese has melted and the rolls have a nice brown color. Let them cool for a while before serving.

Store in fridge up to a week.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

(By Far) The Easiest Way to K4Tog.

I have published earlier a post on an easy way to k4tog - knit 4 stitches together - which is an essential stitch in my Cloud mitten pattern. As you might already know it is a bit challenging especially with 2.5 mm bamboo needles that not only have sharp tips but are bendy and especially prone to snapping. Stubborn as I am, I wasn't going to give up and change the design just to make it easier to knit. So I came up with the idea of using a tiny crochet hook to pull the working stitch through other three. 
I was planning to use this same method when knitting the second pair of Cloud mittens, but alas, I couldn't find the hook anywhere. I seem to have misplaced it and I just can't remember where I put it... And as you know I don't crochet often so the second smallest hook I had was size 3.5 mm which didn't work for this purpose for obvious reasons. 
So I was back to square one trying to figure out how to do the k4tog in an easy way when I got the idea of reversing t…
