Friday Firsts - Roll Success

Friday Firsts

Happy Friday everybody!

I have tried, and failed miserably, a few times at rolls. Try as I might, I just always end up with hard, dry blobs. This has been mighty discouraging, since I'm able to make pie crusts, quick breads, yeast breads, and pizza dough no problem.

Well, I'm proud to say that I had my first roll success! And, it was with a recipe I tweaked, no less! I made saffron rolls with dried cherries for the Marx Foods challenge. Voting will be open March 1st - 4th. I'll be linking to it on the blog and tweeting when it comes time to vote, I'd really appreciate your support!

If you haven't already, please stop by and give me some wedding shoe advice! I could use some 2nd opinions!

This is my first time visiting your blog. Thanks for hosting Friday Firsts. I added in my Mahi Mahi Lettuce Wraps.

Can't wait to visit all the other participant blogs. What a great idea for a swap.

I'm pretty impressed. I don't think I've ever used saffron in my cooking. Maybe that will have to be a first for me as well. Your rolls look quite yummy. Wish I was able to test them for you!

I will definitely vote for those - they look and sound amazing! Saffon adds such a wonderful deep flavour to things. Thank you for hosting :)

By the way, I love that you are going to wear green shoes for your wedding, and all of them are gorgeous. I've voted for my favourite!

Great job on the rolls and fancy ones too!

I'm attempting artisan bread in 5 minutes right now - the loaf is in the oven! Can't wait to see how it works out!
