    Osterbrot: German Easter Bread

    Saturday, 31st March 2018Tyler

    Happy Easter! Only a few hours until Easter Morning! I can’t wait, there’s so much that happens each Easter that it turns the holiday into something magical. Osterbrot definitely makes it into the classic Easter tradition area. That is true, at least, if you are German, enjoy German holiday traditions, or just love Osterbrot. Usually, I usually have an Italian Columba this time of year. But to spice up #MarchGermany even more, we have the Colomba’s close relative: Osterbrot. Once this guy has cooled, I’ll have a slice with breakfast. From what my cousin tells me (she lived in Germany…

    Wow!  it has been quite a bit of time since I posted a recipe! Sorry about that. After my brother’s wedding. It’s been really difficult to get back into the full swing of things. And then on St. Patrick’s Day, I went crazy and made six or seven different traditional Irish dishes. (Including an ancient, a 200-year-old ginger beer recipe that I found an old British cookbook.) With a few modifications and having wait a couple weeks I can tell you that this is ginger beer which you’ll get in a few weeks will blow your mind.  I love the stuff and…

    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…

  • Authentic German Herrencreme Recipe

    German Herrencreme

    Thursday, 8th March 2018Tyler

    I love a good herrencreme. It’s one of those delicious desserts that you can whip up in a few minutes. It’s also one of those tasty treats that you can sit down and relax. Herrencreme tastes like a fancy ice cream and makes you feel as if you were at a ball sampling the hors-d’oeuvres before the king makes his announcement. Speaking of Kings, my brother gets married tomorrow! Yay!! 🎉🎉💒💐⛪🎉🎉 (Huh, I didn’t know I could include those emojis. Super cool!) I’ve almost finished his cake, decorations for his car and the reception! There’s still a bunch to do! I’m super excited for…

    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…

    Homemade Authentic German Pork Schnitzel

    Thursday, 26th October 2017Tyler

    Aaand Welcome back! It has been a cold start to winter. Absolutely freezing. I can’t imagine what full-blown winter will actually be like. The cold cast my mind to the Bavarian Alps. I’m a skier and my favorite part of skiing (other than the skiing itself) is coming back home to a nice warm dish and a cup of cider. This evening that warm dish is Pork Schnitzel, and boy did that go well after coming back inside today (it isn’t yet cold enough to ski, it’s just cold). You’ll love today’s recipe, a German buddy taught me how to…
