• Pasta with Asparagus

    Monday, 30th April 2018Tyler

    The other day I was staring into my pantry thinking, “what should I make today?” After opening the fridge five or six times and being majorly disappointed that the Keebler elves didn’t visit my fridge, I decided to be creative and create a dish I haven’t had nor seen for some time. I’m that moment it occurred to me Pasta with Asparagus. As a child, I’d help my parents in their garden. More than once they would send me out to grab a vegetable for dinner. I’m not sure about you but I love fresh carrots. But my parents didn’t…

    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…

Hmmm… well, actually thinking about it now when I want pancakes, oatmeal, toast, eggs, etc. in the morning I make it. This has to be the first time I planned my dinner upon waking up! But hey, don’t worry I didn’t spend all day working on the soup. It, in reality, only took a few minutes.…

  • Poulet à la moutarde (French Chicken with Mustard Sauce) Recipe

    Poulet à la Moutarde (French Chicken with Mustard)

    Thursday, 8th February 2018Tyler

    Poulet à la moutarde (French chicken with mustard sauce) is by far one of the most delicious meals I’ve had the privilege to have in the past week. When I first heard about this dish I thought, “More chicken? How can chicken ever get any better than the annual turkey leg (at Thanksgiving)?” And that was when I realized it. Turkey is not chicken. Mind Blown! Haha, just kidding, I’ve always known that turkey and chicken are different birds. Last year I lived on a mountainside (my apartment was really high up the mountain) and during winter wild turkeys would walk…

    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…

    Moussaka

    Thursday, 7th December 2017Tyler

    Mουσακάς! Greek Moussaka! I’m really excited about this dish. So excited that I made it six times before posting about it! Moussaka is wonderful for a bunch of reasons (and I know you’ll agree once you make it!). I’m not sure how to list them so I’ll just go for it Moussaka tastes wonderful. Your first forkful contains a blend of flavors. You’ll catch a hint of thyme, the starch from the potatoes, the sharper flavors of the ragù, the subtle eggplant and zucchini juices, and the creaminess of the béchamel sauce. It is both affordable and easy to make!…
