• 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…

    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…

  • Non-Alcoholic Homemade Apple Cider

    Non-Alcoholic Homemade Apple Cider

    Sunday, 14th January 2018Tyler

    I’m still reeling (I don’t think that is the right word), ummm… let’s say excited instead, about Christmas, the New Year, and the cold. It seems that I still have all this running through my mind right now. I loved the English Wassail recipe I posted a few weeks ago. I guess I’m still thinking about those traditional rustic winter drinks. And you know, I had the thought “what if I didn’t want to buy my apple cider for the wassail? What would I do?” Well, if you asked yourself that question then our thoughts are pretty much aligned. Just…

  • Gingerbread Biscuit - Step 6 - Decorate

    Syrup-free Gingerbread Biscuit

    Sunday, 24th December 2017Tyler

    Merry Christmas!! ‘Tis the season for gingerbread biscuits!! At the beginning of the month, I took out my Christmas decorations and began thinking about what dishes I’d like to make this December. Italian panettone, English wassail, and gingerbread biscuits decorated with royal icing immediately came to mind. I decided to start with gingerbread. They sound delicious. But here’s the catch, in the UK gingerbread you use golden syrup, and I didn’t have any. In the United States, you make it with molasses instead of the syrup. I don’t usually carry golden syrup or molasses in my house. And I so, I thought… How…

  • Chocolate Caliente - Step 4 - Serve 2

    Authentic Spanish Hot Chocolate

    Tuesday, 14th November 2017Tyler

    Ah! España! Home of the great navigators and colonizers like Christopher Columbus and Don Quixote. The other day, while eating breakfast, I reflected upon my scrumptious omelet and thought of Spain. Wishing I had something a little more than water with my meal I began thinking about Spanish breakfasts. Lo and behold a classic Spanish breakfast came to mind: chocolate caliente and churros! I know you’ll love making chocolate caliente as much as I did. I actually made it four times in the past few days just to experiment and get the flavor just right (and because it is ridiculously good!). I’m still…
