Dinner Rolls

While I try to bake with whole grains as much as possible, I’m having almost as many failures as successes these days, so when I saw this recipe, I thought I would try it as printed. Even though my husband isn’t a big bread eater, once in a while, we crave what everyone else can enjoy. They did not disappoint. Test one: warm from the oven. My husband’s enthusiastic, “These are good!” would have been enough. Test two: reheating slightly in the microwave to serve my grown kids (who are not gf unless they come home), and they were also thrilled to have good dinner rolls with the soup I made. Test three: the next morning. Reheated again in the microwave (just slightly) and we enjoyed them once more without any unpleasant gf texture or taste that we have come to know too well.

* I did not have the Asian flours, so just used the rice flour I had. I used Almond Milk in place of Rice Milk… because that is what I had on hand.

The author has wonderful explanations of why she used the ingredients she did, so I found that quite helpful as well.


I’ll be back

I have neglected this blog for a very long time. I’m busy… but when I have time in the kitchen, I try new recipes and recreate old ones. Some are complete failures. Some work. Some are amazing. I must come back with some of the recipes that really worked well. And now that I know that someone actually looks at this occasionally, I promise to post again. Soon.
