.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!

Capsule Wardrobe and Knitting. Part 1. My Capsule Wardrobe Knitting Goals.

Before my preganancy I started to read about capsule wardrobes and decided to try and minimize my own pile of clothes. During these past two years I've been trying to define my own stye by really focusing on which clothes I wear over and over again, and which ones are just taking space in my closet.
And the results have been a bit surprising. I have always thought of myself as a colorful person and I thought I loved a bit quirky clothes. But the fact is I don't actually dress the way I imagined I do. I mean, I own(ed) those kind of clothes, but I seldom wear (wore) them. In the reality I kept reaching for the same basics over and over again and feeling the most comfortable wearing them. I do love colors, just not wearing them. It meant I had to redefine my style, my "uniform" and also my knitting queue. I cleaned away everything I didn't really wear and started to buy good quality basics instead. I also cleaned my knitting queue, replacing things that I liked only…
