Gruyere and green onion scones

There’s something about a warm scone coming out of the oven that I love and almost every Sunday I make them as part of our brunch.  I’ve been experimenting by adding different ingredients to my scones, some of which turn out really well and others, not so much.

Recently, I was flipping through Dorie Greenspan’s book Around my french table and lo and behold there was a recipe for saint-germain-des-pres onion biscuits. Er, are those really southern biscuits made with French onions and a whole lot of French flair? Well slap me silly and call me Sally!

Although I’ve eaten many onion biscuits or scones over the years, I’ve never given them a fancy name not have I ever served them with French champagne. So thank you Dorie for the great idea, I’m going to whip up a batch of my Gruyere and Green Onion scones and think up a great posh name for my creation.

Welcome everyone ! I’m Elouise Wagstaff. Even though I jokingly credit my aunt for my writing talent, I know that it is a skill I have fostered from childhood. Though my mother is a writer, I also started out young. I’ve always had a way with words, according to my favorite teacher . I was always so excited in English when we had to do a research paper . Now, I help current pupils achieve the grades that have always come easily to me. It is my way of giving back to students because I understand the obstacles they must overcome to graduate.

You might recognize this fun game from The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Now, you can play it online with up to eight friends in the Houseparty video chatting app for free. During the game, one person races against the clock to guess a hidden word based on clues their friends give&mdash;and it's perfect for a quick and easy virtual game night. It goes up to four players, and its best mode is its simplest: last archer standing wins. Ascension tells engrossing stories with just three verbs - dodging, jumping and shooting. It only takes a single arrow to take out a player, but a well timed dash can let them safely pluck the offending projectile out of the air. It&rsquo;s a system that gives fights a wonderful back and forth feeling to them, and results in the best slow motion replays in video games. https://www.bananasinvestment.com/community/profile/marionhamm44262/ But nobody with a taste for chess can stop at the basics, and the supply of instruction has grown to meet the demand.
