• 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…

  • Homemade Fresh Naan

    Fresh Homemade Naan

    Wednesday, 31st October 2018Tyler

    Homemade Naan is by far one of my favourite types of bread to make at home. Not only is it delicious, but it’s easy and fast! This Homemade Naan recipe is extremely easy. The recipe is part of a 3-part series on Chicken Tikka Masala and Garam Masala. Check them out! I know you’ll love them as much as you will the ease by which you can make Garam Masala! I absolutely love Naan. For me, it’s easier to make than the Italian piadina or a number of other flatbreads including roti, parantha, tortilla, or pita. If I’m being terribly…

    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…

    Zwiebelkuchen (German Onion Pie)

    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…

  • How to Make Homemade Sourdough Croissants, A Delicious Recipe

    Homemade Sourdough Croissants

    Tuesday, 6th February 2018Tyler

    Happy French February! Today I was inspired to make these homemade sourdough croissants. I hope you like them! It’s a funny story about why I decided to make them… BUT before I do so you should know that the sourdough flavor in these croissants depends on how sour your poolish has become! If the poolish isn’t sour, then you won’t have the full sourdough flavor (but they still will be better than normal croissants). I went disc golfing a few days ago. (I’m a huge fan of the sport, and it’s one of the only sports where you play by…

  • Poolish

    Tuesday, 16th January 2018Tyler

    I’ve been making a TON of bread recently. In the past couple days, my oven has baked 10 pizzas, 4 focaccias, 1 pissaladiere, 8 loaves of bread, and reheating my spanakorizo from yesterday (leftovers). And I really excited to teach you today how to make the Polish poolish. Now if you don’t know what a poolish is, why it is useful, or what makes the poolish so awesome then you, my friend, have come to the right place! I don’t want to go into all the details of the history of the poolish, why it is used so much compared…

  • Biga is an Italian Preferment

    Biga

    Tuesday, 16th January 2018Tyler

    To Biga-n (‘begin’), welcome to the world of preferments. If you are entirely unaware of what a preferment is, think back to that funny gas the dentist used last time you were at the dentist. Laughing gas (nitrous oxide) is that fancy chemical used in cars to give Brian O’Conner a smashing failure in Fast and Furious. Each preferment has its own flavor, both unique and incredibly useful. A preferment, like a biga, can turn your dough from a sewer turtle to a teenage mutant, crime fighting, ninja turtle (in a manner of speaking if your bread does turn into a giant…
