As the sisterhood chair of Delta Phi Epsilon, I plan fun events for our sisters. This past weekend I planned a potluck picnic at Kelly Drive. It seemed like the quintessential outdoor weekend activity, perfect for the end of the summer. The perfection was dampened when Mother Nature got in the way and decided to […]
I like Asian food and culture, including bubble tea, pineapple buns and sushi, so naturally I love Chinatown. I’m from New York, so comparatively speaking, Philly’s Chinatown is considerably smaller than New York’s and not conveniently next to a Little Italy. However, what it lacks in size, it makes up for in quality. Philadelphia Chinatown […]
Some people get excited when they buy new clothes. Some like new electronics, books, running shoes, etc. Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy getting all those things, but I really get excited about new kitchen supplies. That being said, I finally bought myself a slow cooker! Slow cookers are electronic pots that run at a […]
Drexel senior Alexxa Grattan won first place Jan. 30 for a dish she created at the S.Pellegrino Almost Famous Chef Mid-Atlantic competition held at The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College in Philadelphia. Grattan, a senior majoring in culinary arts, created and has been perfecting her winning signature dish, Chicken & Biscuits Goes to Town, […]
Ah, January, a month of bitter chill and a super-packed recreation center. You now what they say, new year, new you! Well, I’ve already met my 10 sit-up quota for the year, and it’s time to get cooking. Everyone always says that breakfast is the most important meal of the day for people maintaining a […]
What do you get your Secret Santa when you only have a $15 budget and you’re into cooking? Well, some homemade cookie cake and hot chocolate, of course! It’s Secret Santa week at The Triangle, and I’m already patting myself on the back for bringing it back after not having it last year. We have […]
I spent an hour and a half in Trader Joe’s on the Sunday before Hurricane Sandy just to write this article … and to pick up some bagels. Yes, the checkout lines at Trader Joe’s were 15-20 people deep when I got there. When I left, there was a line just to go in and […]
Now that nature has reminded us what month we’re in, I’ve decided it’s about time to cook something that makes the chilly fall day a little less nippy. Indian cuisine is the ultimate comfort food for cold weather. The mix of curry and chilies is like a down North Face jacket for your mouth. Indian […]
Let’s start this off by getting two things straight: No one actually “loves” being cold, and the only good thing about the oncoming bleak months (besides the oversized fashion magazines) is the pumpkin-spiced everything. I did a little test at the grocery story this week. I took note of every seasonal pumpkin spice item I […]
Take me out to the ballgame. Take me out to the crowd. Buy me some peanuts and overpriced Cracker Jacks. I don’t care if I have college debt, overdue apartment rent and life necessities like water to pay back. Wait, those aren’t the words. Yes, the dog days of summer are winding down, and with […]
Whether you pronounce it “kaw-fee” or “kof-ee,” we can all come to the consensus that coffee’s existence is vital during the second half of the school term. Coffee addicts know there’s nothing quite like that first sip, or super-fast mindless chug, in the morning. It’s like the first breath of life, putting the drinker in […]
You know that time when you taste pure bliss for the first time? When your eyes open to twice their size and your mouth practically convulses with pleasure? I’m talking about eating your first Reese’s cup or slice of authentic tiramisu. Well, I’m here to say I’ve been to the Promised Land: I’ve tasted heaven, […]
Bruschetta is one of the most versatile antipasto. The word bruschetta only refers to the bread itself, which is typically tossed in olive oil, salt, pepper and rubbed with garlic after being toasted. Thousands of combinations come to mind when I think of bruschetta, all of which involve some variation of cheeses, meats, dried fruits, […]
The flavors of summer are particularly exciting for anyone who enjoys biting into that first juicy peach of the season or a perfectly crunchy ear of corn. Taking a trip to Reading Terminal Market could excite anyone’s culinary imagination. I’d like to delve into a delicious dish including fresh U10 sea scallops, colorful heirloom tomatoes […]
The hamburger: the go-to American food staple that we associate with an entire season of the year. From backyard barbecues to trips to our local Bobby’s Burger Palace, the burger is an unavoidable favorite in the USA. The classic burger consists of ground beef in patty form, bread, cheese and other condiments. I […]
