• Italian Breakfast Cookies: Chocolate Chip (Cane Sugar-free)

    Monday, 30th April 2018Tyler

    Two months into the years I lived in Italy, I realized that my roommates had bought tons and tons of cookies. I hadn’t figured out why and decided to ask. “Breakfast of course!” Obviously stunned by the response, they invited me to sample their breakfast the following morning. Italian breakfast cookies take Cookie Crisp to a whole new level! I had cookies for breakfast several times after that (usually Mulino Bianco, such a good brand!). Now, if you’ve browsed my site you may have noticed that I often cut back on the amount of sugar you’d expect to see in…

    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…

    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…
