  • Traditional Mini Cornish Pasty

    Authentic Cornish Pasty

    Tuesday, 14th April 2020Tyler

    The first time I even heard of a Cornish pasty was when I went to Cornwall (not surprisingly).  I had planned to go on a camping trip with some friends near Newquay. (A town in Cornwall has been a tourist spot for more than a hundred years! Not surprising when you see those gorgeous beaches!) After days of planning, we hopped in the car and started driving. The five of us (one Scottish, one South African, one from Isle of Wight, one Irish, and myself, the American) had a grand ole time in our drive. We start driving from Crawley,…

  • Toad In The Hole - Delicious and Wonderful

    Toad In The Hole

    Tuesday, 3rd March 2020Tyler

    Toad in the hole is my favorite way to use Yorkshire Pudding batter. It’s easy, delicious, and all in all pretty cheap to make (which is always a big bonus :). This may come as a surprise, but I have never actually had a non-vegetarian version… That being said I’ve had a few incredible vegetarian sausages with this dish. Namely, the Quorn sausages, and Beyond Meat’s Italian Sausages if you are in the UK or the USA respectively. (I’m actually not sure if you can get Quorn in the USA nor if you can find Beyond Meat in the UK…) I love this…

    Authentic Chicken Tikka Masala

    Monday, 5th November 2018Tyler

    Hey everyone! I feel like it’s been a while since I last posted, but don’t worry I’m still here!!!! 😃😃😃😃 I’ve had a crazy couple of months. Since my last post, I got a job, had been accepted to grad school at the University of Sussex, worked like a maniac, and like any upstanding man in my family I made a ton of delicious food and hit up the gym.  I’m now living in Brighton, UK 🇬🇧 and am attending Uni again. I spent the last week trying to decide what to share, and I finally reached a conclusion. If…

  • Pasta with Asparagus

    Monday, 30th April 2018Tyler

    The other day I was staring into my pantry thinking, “what should I make today?” After opening the fridge five or six times and being majorly disappointed that the Keebler elves didn’t visit my fridge, I decided to be creative and create a dish I haven’t had nor seen for some time. I’m that moment it occurred to me Pasta with Asparagus. As a child, I’d help my parents in their garden. More than once they would send me out to grab a vegetable for dinner. I’m not sure about you but I love fresh carrots. But my parents didn’t…

    Italian Caprese Salad

    Sunday, 8th April 2018Tyler

    Hey, welcome back! It’s been raining for the past several days. I haven’t seen rain like this here in quite some time. Don’t get me wrong, this is by no means a lot of rain. Right now I’m spending my week in Utah (in the USA) visiting friends and family. They’re an energetic lot, but this crazy weather is… well… bizarre. If you don’t know, Utah is a desert. So any rain is a bit unusual. Now, it’s not a desert like the Sahara or Mojave but it is a desert. What’s really mind-boggling is the idea that people come…

  • Zwiebelkuchen (German Onion Pie)

    Zwiebelkuchen (German Onion Pie)

    Saturday, 17th March 2018Tyler

    Zwiebelkuchen made my taste buds explode when I first tried this dish. Making it is extraordinarily easy. Tasting it will make you want only more. If there’s anything you can do to add something wonderfully delicious to your meal zwiebelkuchen is it. I know you will agree with me if you haven’t had yet. And if you have, then I’m sure you agree with me! At first glance, you’ll probably have the same reaction I had… “Wait, is zwiebelkuchen a quiche?” You know what you’re probably right.I do think that zwiebelkuchen the essentially German quiche. While translates to an onion pie, to…

  • German Potato Soup Recipe

    German Potato Soup

    Thursday, 1st March 2018Tyler

    Welcome to the first ever Germany Food Month (#MarchGermany on Facebook/Instagram)! Don’t take this the wrong way, but when I think German food I think of this scene from Hogan’s Heroes. (I’m referring to the first nine seconds, or so, of this clip. But I highly recommend the show if you’d like a few laughs!)      I love that show! (If you can’t see the clip let me know and I’ll try to find it again on YouTube!) Hahaha, call me an old-timer, but I love that show. So many good laughs. Anyway, as you might have gathered from watching…

  • A Slice of Flammekueche

    Traditional Flammekueche (Tarte Flambée)

    Tuesday, 27th February 2018Tyler

    Flammekueche (in Alsatian, tarte flambée in French, and flammkuchen in German) literally translates to “flame cake.” Flammekueche is probably one of the most bizarre pizza-esk dish you’ll ever come across. I mean, just look at the wide variety of names! But, “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” (William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet). How the name came about is beyond me. I Googled around and couldn’t find anything definitive. But, if you know its history please let me know! I’d really like to find out! What I can tell you about the history of flammekueche has been pieced together from tons of web…

  • How to Make Poulet Vallée d’Auge (Creamy French Chicken with Apples) Recipe

    Poulet Vallée d’Auge (Creamy French Chicken with Apples)

    Tuesday, 20th February 2018Tyler

    Poulet Vallée d’Auge (French chicken with apples) is the official chicken dish of Normandy. Its creamy sauce keeps the chicken moist during the entire cooking process. The flavor speaks of an old-timer dish (that is, a dish that takes a long time to make – something that we Millenials usually avoid due to a world of instantaneity). Truth be told, I know you’ll love this dish because of the rich flavors. Poulet Vallée d’Auge (French chicken with apples) is a simple dish that can be eaten with potatoes, apples, rice, or lettuce leaves. The ways that you can eat this are…

    Poulet à la Moutarde (French Chicken with Mustard)

    Thursday, 8th February 2018Tyler

    Poulet à la moutarde (French chicken with mustard sauce) is by far one of the most delicious meals I’ve had the privilege to have in the past week. When I first heard about this dish I thought, “More chicken? How can chicken ever get any better than the annual turkey leg (at Thanksgiving)?” And that was when I realized it. Turkey is not chicken. Mind Blown! Haha, just kidding, I’ve always known that turkey and chicken are different birds. Last year I lived on a mountainside (my apartment was really high up the mountain) and during winter wild turkeys would walk…
