  • A Spanakorizo Recipe: Easy, Fast, Delicious

    Spanakorizo

    Thursday, 11th January 2018Tyler

    Spanakorizo (Σπανακόρυζο)! Yesterday ate a lot of meat. (It felt like a whole pig. I mean, it obviously it wasn’t, but I was boared with other meats 🙂 – oh yeah, I just did make that joke). Any day is a good day when you start with bacon! Regardless of how much I ate, I decided to change-up my diet for today. What a better way to do that than with a dish that uses no meat at all! But that’s plenty about me, let’s talk about spanakorizo. Spanakorizo You’re about to find out just how easy spanakorizo is to make! Whether you’re vegetarian or like…

  • Make Fettuccine Alfredo

    Fettuccine Alfredo

    Tuesday, 2nd January 2018Tyler

    Ok, I know what your thinking. I mean, why would an Italian foodie say anything about a dish that isn’t truly Italian? Well, before I say anything at all I really need to type something up (forgive me for this little rant, but I feel fully justified in what I’m about to say). Fettucine Alfredo is an incredibly difficult dish to find in Italy. During the two years I lived in Italy, I couldn’t find a single Italian that had eaten the dish outside of the United States. Fettuccine Alfredo is about as common as spaghetti and meatballs (mind blown). As an…

  • 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…

  • How to Make Authentic Greek Moussaka Step 10 Final

    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!…

  • Souvlaki

    Tuesday, 5th December 2017Tyler

    Σουβλάκι! That’s right! Souvlaki! Are you ready to Rome the streets of Athens today? (I got a good laugh out of that.) I absolutely love Greek food! Greek food has flavors that really reflect their history. As a kid, probably a lot like you, I was always eager to read Greek mythology. As an undergraduate in physics, I used Greek characters in practically everything I did. By no means does that imply that I’m quite familiar with Greece, but I do love learning about the culture, history, language, and, most importantly for you now, the food. Souvlaki reminds me of dozens…

  • 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…
