Weekends call for delicious brunches. I have a nice bunch of basil in my garden that needed to be picked and some nice beautiful jalapenos ready to harvest too.  Emmi sent me some of their Cave-Aged Le Gruyére try so I decided to add a bit of this rich nutty flavored cheese that pairs perfectly with the fresh green flavors. Add some garlic and farm fresh eggs to make a delicious breakfast or brunch meal.
An omelet is also a tasty quick dinner too that doesn't taste like a quick dinner.
I like to make one big omelet slice it and serve it on a platter so everyone can choose the size they would like to eat.

Fresh Basil & Jalapeno Omelette Recipe

Serves 4

  • 6 eggs
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • gruyére cheese
  • 1 clove garlic
  • small bunch of fresh basil
  • 1 fresh jalapeno
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  • tablespoon butter

There are two techniques used in making a creamy perfectly cooked omelette. First is whipping the cream and eggs together. Crush and mice the garlic, chop the jalapeno into small pieces, add salt and pepper to taste and whip into eggs. 

Add butter to a medium size frying pan. Heat on medium heat. Add eggs mixture to pan.

The second technique is to allow the eggs to cook on the bottom they pull the edges into the center with a wooden spoon allowing the uncooked eggs to fill in the sides and cook. Repeat this until all the eggs are almost cooked. At this point add the Gruyére cheese. You can either slice it into thin slices or grate it. Then fold the omelette in half and cook just until the cheese is melted. 

With these two techniques you will end up with a cream delicious center and perfectly cooked eggs that aren't dry. 

Slice and garish with a sprig of fresh basil and slices of fresh jalapeno.

Recipe: Pickle Juice Pickle Juice Pickle Juice Why is Everyone Drinking it?

Kind of like Beattle Juice only Pickle Juice. If you have done any kind of research into a low carb-keto diet you have probably seen posts about pickles and drinking pickle juice. 


The reason everyone is talking about pickles and pickle juice is because it's an excellent way to prevent you from getting headaches, muscle cramps and getting dehydrated when you are on a low carb- keto diet especially when you are first starting out. Even before I started my low carb way of eating a found out that I could stop my migraines in their tracks with some pickle juice. 

Why Pickles and How Does the Pickle Juice Work?

The pickle juice just happens to be the perfect mix of salt, water, and vinegar which renew the electrolytes in your body. It also helps you stay hydrated too. Did you know that athletes drink pickle juice too? It a much better drink than those awful sticky sugar filled sports drinks.

After draining several bottles of pickles of their juice I decided to make my own pickle juice. I already make pickles, I come from pioneer stock and we pickle everything! Here is our tried and true delicious pickle brine recipe.

Pickle Juice (sans cucumbers)

Wash and dry canning jars.  In a large pot combine water, vinegars, and salt. Bring to a simmer then add garlic cloves, dill, and red pepper flakes. Simmer for 5 minutes for flavors to blend. Pour into quart jars.  

That's it! Peasy Peasy! Store in the fridge.
