.Mushroom Pie with Fresh Thyme.

I was so happy about finally succeeding with a gluten free pie crust that isn’t either brittle, grainy and dry or so sticky that it’s impossible to get out of the form that I made another pie, this time with mushrooms. I’ve been trying to empty our fridge before our vacation and refrain myself from buying too much groceries that we don’t have time to eat. The champignons needed to be used but we didn’t really have anything to serve them with, so I decided to make them into the main course. 

Pies are good in the same way as pizza: you only need to make the crust and add bits and pieces of other stuff from your fridge (that wouldn’t alone be enough for a full meal) over it and you have a delicious dinner ready. Almost all combinations work and you can have as many or few ingredients as you wish (or actually have).


one pie crust with this recipe

300 g of sour cream (crème fraiche)
400 g mushrooms, roughly chopped (I used champignons)
2 red onions, diced
2 dl of rocket salad, chopped
0.5 dl fresh thyme, chopped
2 dl of pecorino cheese, grated (or parmesan)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp curry powder
2 Tbsp butter

Preheat your oven to 220 °C and line your pie form (about 30 x 30 cm) with parchment paper.

Sautee the mushrooms in a skillet with 1 Tbsp butter. When they are thoroughly cooked and slightly browned add the curry powder and salt, and set aside to cool. Fry the onions with the rest of the butter until they become transparent.

Make the pie crust following the recipe in the link above. Press it into your pie form starting from the edges and working your way to the middle. Spread the sour cream over the crust. Add the sautéed mushrooms and the fried onions as well as the rocket salad and fresh thyme. Grate some pecorino cheese over it all and put the pie into the oven.

Bake for about 40 minutes, or until fully baked and the edges have started to brown slightly.

Salut Chéri! Beret Pattern.

Here is the pattern for the berets I've knitted. The name for the beret is from the t-shirt I was wearing when I took the project photos of the first beret for Ravelry. I thought the name suited the beret, since it's quite classical take on the hat that has become the icon of everything French. Happy knitting!

Theo's New Knitwear.

All of Theo's hats became suddenly too small for him. And also too hot now that spring has arrived. I had been eyeing the Kyushu hat pattern by Kuroki Knitting for a while and decided to knit it now that I had the chance. I love knitting baby hats because they are really fast to knit but at the same time as versatile as grown-up hats. This hat had a really unique eyelet sic sac pattern which was fun to knit. 
Theo was diagnosed with allergy to eggs, that's why his cheeks are looking so bad at the moment. But now we know and can eliminate all things containing eggs from his diet!
This was my first time knitting with Sandnes Garn Mini Alpaca, but certainly not the last one. Unlike many other alpaca yarns it was not at all itchy which is important for baby knits. The light blue color is also really cute in my opinion. 

I have also finished the bunny yoke pullover I started knitting during the Easter holidays. The pattern is Sweet William by Ann Kingstone and it is one of the cute…
