CHICKEN STROGANOFF - THE ULTIMATE COMFORT FOOD

Growing up in Brazil, you don't get a lot of winter chilli days when you just want to get home, crawl under a blanket and eat warm, fulfilling, comfort food.

But when you do, chicken stroganoff is definitely a classic. I know, it sounds like a Russian specialty (and it probably originally is) but it became really popular in Brazil. Maybe because it's easy, cheap and great for family meals.

Preparing a basic stroganoff is easy, but I'll give you a couple of tips to pump up the flavor a notch and guarantee the best texture for the dish.

CARROT, APPLE AND PISTACHIO SALAD - THE BEST WINTER SALAD EVER!



Boston is known for being the place for great Universities, bio-tech start ups and top-notch sports teams, but… let me tell you it should actually be known for having the best salads in the planet! (and I’m an expert!)

One of my favorite spots in Boston is Live Alive, a restaurant and cafe near Cambridge’s Central Square. Basically everything they have is super healthy and delicious, but their salads are just from out of this world.

So here’s a salad recipe inspired in one of my favorites dishes from this glorious place! It’s really easy to make – the secret is on the sauce!
