.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).




MUSHROOM PIE WITH FRESH THYME

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! Salut Chéri! You need:  yarn: 105-125 m (114 - 137 yards) worsted weight yarn. The sample was knitted with Novita Joki ( 104 m or 114 yard per 50g) needles : 3.5 mm and 4.0 mm (US size 4 and 6) circular needles (40 cm or 16 inches) size 4.0 mm (US size 6) DPNs 6 stitch markers , one of a different color to indicate the beginning of the round Gauge : 10 sts and 16 rounds = 5 cm (2 inches) in straight Stockinette stitch with 4.0 mm needles Cast on 88 sts on 3.5mm circular needle. Join in round, careful not to twist the stitches. Place a marker to indicate the beginning of the round. Knit in straight Stockinette stitch (knit all

Saving A Curling Scarf.

Don't you just hate it when a piece you've spent hours working on doesn't turn out the way you imagined it? It looks like this... ...when it should be more like this. After just a couple of rows into the Trellis scarf I noticed the cast on edge started to roll upwards ever so slightly. As I continued to knit the curling got worse and worse until it seemed to calm down when the scarf measured 10 cm or so from the CO edge. I didn't really stress much about it thinking it would be easily fixed later on and continued to knit further. Halfway through knitting the scarf I faced another problem with the scarf. The CO edge still rolled up and now the sides started to curl inwards. So badly that the scarf lost more than half of it's width. I hate it when it happens. If this was something I designed myself I could maybe live with the mistake, but when it's a pattern that is published I would assume such things would have been fixed. Or at least
