  • Hot Cross Buns, Traditional, Simple, Delicious

    Hot Cross Buns

    Wednesday, 18th March 2020Tyler

    Hot cross buns are by far some of the most delicious and easy snacks that I make all times of year. (Though I do make them more often during Easter. After all, it is an easter treat!) I had heard about hot cross buns for a long time, ever since I was a kid. Though I’d never had a chance to see them until I moved to England. Until then, I had thought that they were just part of that beloved nursery rhyme: Hot cross buns! Hot cross buns! One a penny, two a penny, Hot cross buns! If you have…

  • Deliciously Easy Yorkshire Pudding Recipe

    Yorkshire Pudding

    Sunday, 10th November 2019Tyler

    Yorkshire pudding, from an American’s first perspective, is one of the craziest and strangest ways to make a German pancake. (Though, now I would say that Yorkshire pudding is more of a popover than a German pancake albeit that the differences are minimal.) When I first moved to England, I was rather reticent to try it. I mean, growing up eating Germain pancakes made me wonder at how it might taste when savory rather than sweet. I avoided it at every opportunity until I had my first roast dinner there. (And of course, you can’t possibly have a good roast…

    Fresh Homemade Naan

    Homemade Naan is by far one of my favourite types of bread to make at home. Not only is it delicious, but it’s easy and fast! This Homemade Naan recipe is extremely easy. The recipe is part of a 3-part series on Chicken Tikka Masala and Garam Masala. Check them out! I know you’ll love them as much as you will the ease by which you can make Garam Masala! I absolutely love Naan. For me, it’s easier to make than the Italian piadina or a number of other flatbreads including roti, parantha, tortilla, or pita. If I’m being terribly…

  • The City of Brest's Best Crepes: An Easy and Quick Recipe

    The City of Brest’s Best Crepes

    Wednesday, 14th February 2018Tyler

    Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you are celebrating today (being Valentine’s Day and the 14th day of French February) as I am with a bite of something delicious! (Crepes are beyond delicious, but that may be partially due to how simple they are to make! I mean, I croissants are incredible too but they require a lot more effort!) Yesterday, I had a fun conversation (via text) with a friend. I really enjoyed the conversation and thought I’d dramatize the texting conversation here today… Dramatized Story Vzzzzzt. Vzzzzzt. Vzzzzzt. Tyler looked down from his computer to his phone. The screen turned on indicating that…

  • A French Pissaladiere Recipe

    French Pissaladiere

    Thursday, 18th January 2018Tyler

    Yesterday, my brother got engaged! It was really exciting! He asked me to be chauffeur (he wanted a limo-like ride in my Grandpa Car – 1994 Lincoln Town Car), cameraman, and chef on his special night. All day I practiced a gluten-free version of the Asturian cachopo. Then when the time came for me to pick him up, I quickly did my best to plate the food like a pro and rushed off to his apartment. (On my way I realized that I had forgotten to buy him 12 red roses. The next ten minutes felt like a scene from…
