• 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…

  • How to Make Authentic Italian Tiramisu with White Chocolate Chips

    Traditional Coffee-free Tiramisu

    Wednesday, 24th January 2018Tyler

    I remember the first time I laid my eyes on a tiramisu. It was glorious; it tasted absolutely stunning; from the moment it touched my tongue I knew I had to learn how to make it. That was just one awe-inspiring event that changed the course of my taste for desserts. That happened during my first week living in Italy, and I was in awe of practically everything. I wouldn’t call it a culture shock, but I was definitely surprised. My friend and I had joined a family for dinner and the wife just so happened to be a professional chef. Although…

  • Carbonara - Step 4 - Final Product 2

    Classic Carbonara

    Saturday, 30th December 2017Tyler

    I woke up this morning feeling like bacon. Suffice it to say I was extremely disappointed when I opened my fridge. So, I came up with another plan. This afternoon I ran to the store and bought some. I came back and in minutes whipped together this delicious carbonara. I’ve always considered the carbonara to be a strange dish, wonderfully creamy and bacony but strange. I mean, the dish is practically pasta, cream, eggs, and bacon. There’s not much to it other than that. I don’t even know how it came about. Honestly, I can hardly imagine the original creation. It…

  • 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…

  • Traditional German Pork Schnitzel

    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…
