.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! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
