After a weekend down the shore, I was craving something relatively light and refreshing. I made these tacos in about 10 minutes but they tasted like I spent much more time, with much more effort! I drizzled chicken cutlets with EVOO and liberally coated with jerk seasoning. Browned in a skillet until just cooked through, and let sit for a few minutes so the juices could redistribute. I toasted two flour tortillas in a pan with just a little butter, then spread on refried beans. Topped with cheddar cheese, sliced chicken, radish slices, a sauce I made using Fage 9% Greek Yogurt and chipotles in adobo. I zested fresh lime over the top, and a squeeze of juice before eating. SO GOOD!!!
A new Pizzeria Vetri opened on Chancelor Street and I essentially tripped over my feet getting there for lunch the other day. I have been to the one on Callowhill, but their new location is only a few blocks away from my office and much more convenient! The décor echoes Callowhill's with the red, white, laid back modern feel. The 90s music is an awesome touch and makes you want to sit and listen all day. We started with the Rotolo, dubbed one of the "Best Bites" by a local critic. Rightfully so, it turned out to be the best nugget of anything that I've tasted in a long time. Creamy ricotta, salty mortadella, rolled into a buttery and pillowy dough, topped with pistachio pesto. You'll w
Here is a quick and easy 15-min dinner for any night of the week! I took pre-cut chicken cutlets and lightly dusted them in flour, salt and pepper. Cook in a skillet until both sides are lightly browned. Add the juice of 1 lemon, a splash of chicken stock, water, or white wine, and as many capers as your heart desires. I had fresh parsley on-hand so I included that as well but it's okay leave it out if you don't have any... or use dried! Let cook a few minutes to incorporate and voila! For a side, I cut bacon into lardoons and cooked until crispy. I tossed in quartered Brussels Sprouts, salt & pepper, and sautéed until cooked through and brown.
For years I've heard rave reviews about the burger at Rouge on Rittenhouse Square. Even Oprah named it one of the best burgers in America, and I tend to trust her on most things! The Rouge burger consists of caramelized onions and Gruyere on a brioche bun, and is served with a side of butter lettuce, tomato, pickle, and a healthy side of French fries. The burger itself looked beautiful, very moist, thick, and was cooked "medium" as I ordered it. While I think it tasted very good, the onions reminded me so much of meatloaf, that it just wasn't as good as I hoped it would be. It also reminded me of French onion soup, so my head was very confused by what my mouth was tasting. I also thou
