Thank you for all the fauxfee recommendations! Quite a few of you guys think Teeccino is good, so I'm most excited to try that one first!
Last week I teased you with those Wheat-Free Orange-Anise Rolls that I was having with my Pero fauxfee, so let's not dilly-dally and jump straight to business! These rolls are crusty on the outside thanks to their sugar coating, but they are not overly sweet. They are inspired by Celine's Almond Spelt Sweet Rolls of insane awesomeness, which I have blogged about before. See the picture that I took of Celine's rolls? Now look at the one I took of these anise rolls. Yep. Just call me a one trick pony.

It took me a few weeks to get the hang of wheat-free baking. I found that there's a fine line between a perfect dough and a dough that is too dry or too sticky. The dough for these burger buns/hockey pucks was obviously too dry...
On a non-food related note, check out all the crafty gifts I've received lately! Lately? It's been weeks! There's no excuse, I'm just a slowpoke. Bianca sent me this rockin' craftiness that now lives happily in my kitchen:
Kiss my grits! Isn't it super crunky and awesome? It's cross stitch perfection! Such meticulous work! I love it! It lives by the bread maker, and it goes with all the red stuff I have in the kitchen. Score! That picture is blurry, here's a close-up:
I also received a fabulous crafty gift from Katie! Check out this bird-tastic pouchy pouch!
So colorful and fun! This is excellent
craftsmanship craftswomanship, people. I can only dream of one day being so skilled with a sowing machine. It's my new makeup pouch, and it carries all my make up: concealer, blush, and lip balm. Lip balm isn't even make up, is it? :P
One more thing before I go burn or break something in the kitchen. When I deleted the gigantor MoFo bundle from google reader, it took along with it a few of my pre-MoFo subscriptions! They got deleted just like that! I only realized yesterday that I have been involuntarily snubbing some of you, but the problem is fixed now and all the missing subscriptions have been restored... I think! Please let me know if I have been involuntarily snubbing you so I can add your blog to my reader again! Kthxbai!
