All you knead is love…. Blue cheese and walnut rolls

I mean – who doesn’t love the silver fox? eh?

If you are a #GBBO fan like me – then you know who I am talking about!!

#GBBO = Great British Bake Off currently in season 4 on BBC2 and the Silver Fox = baker and #GBBO judge Paul Hollywood! (*sigh* – don’t tell HIM but I have a major crush on this tv celeb!! ;))

HIM and I hosted a little sunday luncheon on Sunday, 7 of us in total… and it seemed that whatever I did in the kitchen on Saturday just wouldn’t (or couldn’t) work… I had to make my dessert pastry cases twice (as I left the first batch in the oven too long)… and then my cauliflower and tomato soup just didn’t taste right…. so I left the making of bread to Sunday morning – when I knew I would be in a better frame of mind and therefore my bread would be better (and I managed to fix the soup!)

All you knead is love….

This recipe is adapted from the BBC Good Food Magazine (October 2011 issue) – (adapted because I have not used the butter and only used white bread flour (and not a combination of wholemeal & white) and it was still delicious!)Definitely a *re-make* kind of recipe! But – if you are like me … make sure that you create these when you are feeling a bit more happy and I promise that they will turn out great! (And remember that you need to give bread time…..)
