The Steel City

December 18, 2011


I apologize for the lack of content recently – I was pressed for time, between finishing up my psych rotation and relocating to Pittsburgh for a family medicine clerkship. The drive wasn’t bad – in fact, I made it here from Philly in only 4 hours.  But when I decided to check out my accommodations, […]

July 4, 2011


After returning from my Costco run this weekend, I realized I had to start thinking of creative ways to get rid of the 4 lbs. of plums I purchased (seemed like a good idea at the time).  I could have made some type of plum sauce, but since it’s July 4th weekend, something just had […]

Ingredients: 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast (the marinade can support another) 1/3 cup, plus 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar 2 tablespoons […]

“Make it Happen” at RIM Café

February 23, 2011


This blog was never intended to have reviews of restaurants or other establishments, but I’m making an exception: South Philly is a unique place – and you can find absolutely anything in the Italian Market – but I never thought I’d find something as unique as RIM Café. Owner & sole operator René will treat […]

What I’m Eating | Easy Homemade Pasta

February 23, 2011


Who doesn’t love fresh pasta?  Don’t be intimidated by the thought of making your own at home – it’s simple and requires nothing you don’t already have in the house.  It can be done in about an hour, start to finish, and the result is well worth the effort. Ingredients: 2 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour, […]
