After making it through a few ugly days of the flu last week, I woke up a couple of days ago with an even uglier illness…vertigo.
If you haven’t had it, I envy you and you should probably add “not getting vertigo” to your prayer list because it’s something you never want. If you have had it, well, my heart aches for you and you know exactly where I’m coming from.
However, I have to tell you that I’ve had it two other times in the past, and because I caught it early this time, it’s not nearly as bad as it could be. With the help of anti-dizzy drugs I managed to walk the dogs today , make home-made soup to settle my stomach, and to make these extremely easy dinner rolls. I’m not a pill popper and I don’t like to take anything that makes me feel weird in any way, but I must say, thank God for vertigo medication. Without it, I wouldn’t even be able to stand to look at my computer screen, or get out of bed for that matter, and here I am making chicken soup and rolls for myself. Meclizine gets two thumbs up.
Don’t burn your towel while raising the rolls like I did. We’ll chalk that one up to the drugs.
I was quite happy this afternoon when I finally felt like things were taking a turn for the better. The ground stopped moving and my brain stopped feeling like it was on fire. And I was hungry! I had been trying to gag down toast, tea, and apple slices just to get something into my stomach, which has to be one of the most unsatisfying meals on earth.
No matter what sickness I may have, absolutely nothing tastes better to me than home-made chicken soup. They’ve actually done studies on how healing it is, even just smelling it.
You can find my organic chicken soup recipe here.
And of course, who doesn’t love a good dinner roll? Those of you who live the gluten-free life know exactly how hard it is to find a dinner roll recipe that doesn’t turn out like a hockey puck or resemble that salt dough we used to make Christmas ornaments out of in kindergarten.
Search no more because this is by far the best one I have ever tried. I could eat them every day. They smell like a yeasty dinner roll, look like a dinner roll, and amazingly enough…taste like a dinner roll.
Guess where I found the recipe? Pinterest. And it uses my absolute favorite gluten-free flour blend, Mama’s Almond Blend All Purpose Gluten Free Flour Blend.
I’ve been told by anti-Pinterest snobby snobs that, “Pinterest is a complete waste of time.”
I think not snobby snobs.
I. Think. Not.
You can find the recipe for these awesome rolls right here at Mygluten-freekitchen.com.
I use bread machine yeast and allow mine to rise for 1 hour and bake them about 5 minutes longer than the time listed.
I’m becoming quite the Pinterest addict! And I’ve also had a vertigo episode where I couldn’t move or even turn my head or open my eyes or I’d vomit. It was hideous. I ended up in hospital on a drip. I thought I had a brain tumor. Anyway, these rolls look really good and I’m sorry you burnt your cloth – that’s something I would do! xx
