Welcome to Day 2 of my Passion Project’s “chicken week”! Now that we’ve learned how to make homemade chicken broth, what better way to showcase its delicious flavors than in a big bowl of chicken noodle soup? Yesterday, I told you to keep the shredded meat that fell off the bones while cooking the stock. Today, I’m showing you a perfect way to use that too!

I should probably preface this post by making it clear once and for all that I really love meat! Surprising, I know, considering that only 5 recipes, out of the 90+ I have up on my blog, feature meat. Breaking news, I’m not a vegetarian by choice! Anyone who knows me is well aware that I can’t say no to a juicy piece of steak, a fork-tender leg of lamb, or a perfectly roasted chicken.

At least definitely one of the most creative and refreshing ones. Now back to the squash. Does that sound enticing? or a bit weird? From where I stand, probably both. So here’s a brief background about this recipe. Continue reading “Spaghetti Squash Chicken Pad Thai”

Note that I shall be back on a regular posting schedule now that I’m at school. Look for recipes on Fridays!

School is back in full speed and I’m already overwhelmed. It’s course selection period, which is when I have the most doubts about the future course of my semester. I always change my mind a few times before I settle for a final schedule that I’m perfectly happy with. During that “shopping period,” I have very little time to eat because I go to as many classes as possible, including over lunchtime. That got me thinking about strategies to keep eating healthy, homemade food even away from my kitchen. Since sandwiches can only be good for so long, I turned towards “bentos” (or Japanese lunch boxes). Continue reading “Bento Inspired Lunch”

Philly is well known for its delicious foodtrucks. The city’s filled with them, and they provide wonderful alternatives to more expensive sit-down places. They’re also a great way not to get bored with your daily meals, as there are so many to choose from, all specializing in different types of food. On my campus specifically, there isn’t a single truck without a long line between 11:30-3. It always amazes me. Though the options are very varied, one of the most classic foodtruck “specialty”, or staple recipe, here is “grilled chicken over rice”.
