A couple weeks ago, I went apple picking for the first time. Not that I had never picked an apple right from a tree before, but I had never driven to an orchard with friends to do exclusively that. As it turns out, apple picking is a quintessential fall activity here in America. And after this past week, I finally understand why.
We wandered through tree-lined alleys and filled buckets and buckets of apples – while eating our fair share right from the trees. Trust me, it doesn’t get any sweeter than biting right into them! Continue reading “Warm Fall Apple Crumble”
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!

Another cold day, another warm soup! I realize that I posted a soup recipe last week already but to be perfectly honest with you, soups constitute about 50% of my diet as soon as the temperature drops. The other half is noodles, and even then I usually find a way to combine the two into noodle soup. Continue reading “Wintery Red Split Lentils and Turnip Soup”
“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”
