Chicken and Fajita Vegetables Swiss Chard Burrito

DSC_0005 DSC_0041-2 recettebilingue I’ve been home for over a week now, and all I’ve been doing is eat. Seriously… It’s partly due to the fact that it’s the holiday-season but I also simply can’t control myself when my dad’s cooking. I tend to forget how good it is when I go back to school, and then I fall right back into it when I go home. In many ways, it’s a daily test to my self-control that I fail miserably. So in preparation for today’s New Year’s Eve dinner, I felt like I needed a “detox” lunch. Continue reading “Chicken and Fajita Vegetables Swiss Chard Burrito”

“I said Brrrr, it’s cold in here!”…

…is all I can think about as soon as I step outside of my house. It is very cold here in Philly, and as always when winter comes around, I get sick and I get pale. Now when it’s cold or if I’m sick, my favorite thing to eat is homemade soup, and when I’m pale I stock up on carrots to soak up all that beta-carotene and (hopefully) get a nice halo. So without further due, please welcome: carrot soup! aka. my favorite kind of “cure”! Continue reading “Carrot and Parsnip Soup with Sweet Hungarian Paprika”

It’s time for me to share another one of my food obsessions, and this one is called “ricotta”. Just the sound of it fills my mind with so many dreams of fluffy creamy deliciousness. If a restaurant offers some kind of homemade ricotta appetizer, you can be sure that I will order it right away. My favorite preparation being “sprinkled with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, and a light drizzle of fruity olive oil”. Spread it over some freshly toasted sourdough, and you have the perfect bite. Continue reading “Grilled Zucchini Roll-Ups with Black Truffle Ricotta”

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”.

For this final edition of my sweet potato series, I decided I’d make a quick stop to Asia and incorporate the last third of my potato into a delicious noodle soup. Since I hadn’t roasted it earlier, I figured I’d switch it up a bit and boil it instead. Now the thing is that boiled potatoes usually taste quite bland. So I made the best out of it and came up with this amazing noodle soup where it actually makes sense to have them boiled. Score!
