This was the onion and Gruyere cheese our daughter made for Christmas Brunch.
she used a store-bought pie crust. It was every bit as good as it looked. :-D
4 large eggs
1 large yellow onion
4 to 5 ounces of shredded Gruyere cheese
2 cups half and half
About 1 cup flat parsley leaves
2 tbs olive oil

Dice the onion and sauté in oil until slightly browned.

Whisk the eggs in a large bowl, add half and half, onions, parsley and cheese. Mix well.

Pour into pie crust and bake at 375F for 40 minutes.

Let stand for 5-6 minutes before serving.

Quite the Swiss touch there. Such pies are a traditional Friday dish. Historical background was that the small farming communities had a common large wood oven (much the smaller sized pizza ovens). On Fridays each family would bring along their own prepared breads for baking in the early morning (on a schedule as to keep the dough fresh), the fresh bread for Sunday and the rest of the week. Towards noon they would bring the various forms of pies to cook with the remaining warmth of the oven ready for lunch.

PS. drop some small chunks of bacon or smoked ham into the mix ;)

PPS. variants are with Swiss Cheese rather than Gruyere, without the onions, add thinly slice tomatoes ontop. Or vegetarian plain spinach or minced (with bacon), or any other kind of vegetble you fancy. Thin cut potatoes mix also well with the cheese variants.

That was an interesting video. Some of it I knew. I think I'll bring back a jar of honey next time I'm in Europe. I only grind my own coffee beans. I'm glad I don't drink much "orange juice," and I already knew about the Kobe beef. In general, though, it's depressing that the USA rates so low on the quality of food here, but it doesn't come as a real surprise.

We don't eat a huge amount of beef, but when we were in Argentina, the beef was so much different than here. It was just incredibly tasty.

I am going on an adventure.

When I moved, I ended up "forgetting" (i.e., throwing away) my sourdough starter. I'd had it for so long, I'm not even sure if I remember where I got it from. And yes, a friend "gifted" me some starter. I just had to keep it fed with some rye flour on occasion. Made some rather tasty sourdough bread.

Well, now I'm going to be making some. I just kept mine in a tupperware container. I did keep it in the fridge after awhile and would just take out and "revive" what I needed when I wanted to make sourdough bread.

I've seen sourdough crocks here and there that are made to store the starter. Might look into those as well.

This was in "Good Housekeeping" about 35 years ago. The Elbow Room is still in business and the parking lot is usually full. The name "Elbow Room" probably refers to the restaurant's small size and the closeness of its tables to each other. It opened in 1958.

One Youtube channel I follow since a couple of years has just reached the amazing number of 1 million subscribers !

The two guys, gay couple, live in the country side, and they sometimes feature their pet owl. I did never see them mention their location, but must be in the northern part of the US with mild winters. They have never shown their home in any video, they hardly eer show their faces. They have an own herb garden and plant their own vegetable. I infer from their clips that they do much of their own harvesting and keep preserves over winter time. What they show is a couple of their outdoor cooking places with chimney fire. Mostly they prefer to make their cooking over open fire out in the woods. They live near a creek and near a river, so these give the backgrounde to their videos. One of the guys does the filming while his partner does the cooking. The outstanding feature is that they don't speak a word during their clips. Some explanations on the recipe gets cast in with video editing. One of the features of cooking "in the wild" is the slab of wood the cook uses, and his special knife. Over time and on request they have started to commercialize these two items on a small scale.

Here the Youtube channel to explore: Almazan Kitchen
with link to the videos

and some arbitrary choices of their contributions, starting with the most recent one:

1 Million Subscribers Video! - Faces Revealed! - Fried Unicorn

HANDMADE PASTA IN THE FOREST! - feat. Mr.Ramsay the Owl

HOW TO MAKE BEST BURGER EVER! - Serbian Pljeskavica - Gurmanska Pljeskavica

IFF true - a yuuge ouch on my side :bag: - I remember them mentioning a Serbian twist to their food as past of their clip titles. But I truely believed them living in the US. Though I now did see one of their online shops is charging items in € Euros.

Off Topic
Had they actually been in the US, they'd have been in violation of the Migratory Bird Act with their possession of the owl. Possessing native wildlife, even an egg or a feather, is potentially a felony under the act.

A local woman was charged after she was found to be selling stuff at craft fairs that included feathers she'd collected in the wild. She got off fairly lightly, but didn't learn from it, complaining that it should be legal to pick up and use feathers.
Yeah, lady, and then people start killing the birds to collect the feathers to meet the new demand.

That is good Texas chili (assuming you leave out the red tomatoes and beans), but what have you to say about okra and green tomatoes?

But the instant you put okra in it, it stops being chili and starts being gumbo. Not that that's a bad thing.

We're having gumbo for supper tonight. Or maybe this afternoon. The smell is making me hungry right now!

I never had okra until I was in the air force and loved it. Some years later, making dinner for my family, I served okra never thinking to ask if anyone liked it. Turns out I was raised in a family of okra haters. They all like pears (which are vile) too, also. Maybe I'm adopted.

Or you were deprived of a good food! Okra is a learned food, much like cracklins. It can be essential to a gumbo, although gumbo file is a better thickener. Or fried it is a wonderful vegetable. As are green tomatoes.

I have been known to put spicy pickled okra in my martini in place of olives.

I made corn chowder for dinner tonight. It's cold with some snow flurries here today, so it seemed like the perfect day for it.

And put me down as not at all liking okra. I've tried it once or twice and just can't do it. Another thing I can't eat is collard greens. We ate in a local restaurant in Charleston that made the best Southern fried chicken in the world! The meal came with collard greens, so I figured if I was ever going to have some perfectly prepared that would be the place. :sick: The waitress very nicely removed the dish and gave me something else. We ate there on another trip there, but I knew to ask for another vegetable the second time.
