Ambitious title, I know. But I hope I’ve enticed your appetite, because you’re in for a treat!
Hummus is one of those small things in life that make me happy. I can’t say no to this dip. Luckily for me, there’s an amazing place to get delicious hummus in Philadelphia. It’s a hummusiya called Dizengoff, where they serve it with different toppings, changing daily. Some days you can get lamb, fava beans, or hard boiled eggs, and others you can expect avocado, chicken skin or beets for example. They come up with really creative flavors that pair so well with their hummus. They also make it extremely creamy, with lots of tahini just how I like it. Finally, they serve it with freshly baked homemade pitas that are like no other you’ve tasted before. It’s such a great combo I could eat it all day everyday.

It’s here everybody! It’s finally here! The first copy of my cookbook has arrived in the mail!!
How did this happen??? So you know how I worked on a “Passion Project” for this whole semester? Well to mark the end of it, I had to pick a final deliverable. Naturally I chose to make a fully printed, legit cookbook! (aka a dream come true!) After countless hours working on the layout, I finally sent it to the publisher and received it at my house! Continue reading “Spaghetti with a Vegan Cauliflower “Alfredo””
Roasting is probably the first cooking technique I have learned for poultry. Back home, roasted chickens are one of our go-to family meals. It’s so easy, yet so good! The chicken remains juicy throughout the cooking process and this technique requires close to no effort on the cook’s part. Just toss the bird in a roasting pan with a bunch of chopped veggies, some oil or butter, and you’re good to go! Continue reading “Passion Project: Dry Rubbed Chicken Roast with Rosemary Potatoes”
I have an announcement to make: yesterday, I went to a “Thanksgiving potluck” (yes, we might be a little over eager here)! This wasn’t your typical potluck though, as it was jointly organized by two of the campus’ food clubs, one of which I am a member of. So we’re talking delicious poultry, mouth-watering sides like crispy roasted brussel sprouts, mashed potatoes, or cranberry sauce, and fully satisfying desserts such as pumpkin and apple pies. Now among them all, one dish required me to get seconds: “pumpkin mac n’ cheese”! Continue reading “Creamy Acorn Squash Linguine with Fresh Thyme”
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”.
