Jam Rolls

This was more of an unplanned post but I had to share it here. So in my last post, I made challah (link here). It was great and delicious and everything I hoped for. But I had quite a bit of dough to use up and I wanted to make something sweet. At first I…

Challah (Egg Bread)

I love challah. Being Jewish, I’ve eaten a lot of challah growing up. Can’t get enough of it. Funny though, I’ve never made it from scratch before. I should have gotten into the bread baking back when everyone else was doing it. Oh well, better late than never to get in on the action. I…

Greek Orzo Salad

Here we are, it’s Monday once again which means I am sharing another Thug Kitchen 101 recipe. Today, I have made the Greek Orzo Salad. I knew, even before making this, that I was going to love this salad. Everything about this recipe is totally something I would make on my own, and the only…

Big Macs

I know recreating fast food menu items has been around for a long time. You could watch probably hundreds, if not thousands, of videos online of making all sorts of different things. I hadn’t really taken part too much in that, but ever since I made the McMuffins last month (link here), I wanted to…

Dill Yogurt Dip

I love eating my veggies, but sometimes they can be a little boring on their own. That’s why it’s so fun to make yummy dips! They are also super easy to make in as little as 5 minutes. Using a base of 0% greek yogurt is a healthy way to get a creamy dip without…

Sweet Potato Al Pastor

I love when you can make a recipe and then use that prepared food in another recipe. That’s what happened for me. I made the delicious Pineapple Salsa last week (link here) and used the leffovers as a toppings for these veggie tacos. It was great double duty and nothing went to waste! So just…

Peanut Butter Chocolate Hearts

I love peanut butter cups. Homemade ones of course. They’re so much better than the packaged ones you get, usually at Halloween time. Making them yourself is also way healthier because there are no preservatives or weird chemicals. I posted a peanut butter cup recipe almost 4 years ago (wow can’t believe I’ve been blogging…

Sushi Pizza

National pizza day was yesterday (February 9) and I had to celebrate. I eat regular pizza all the time, so I thought it would be fun to go a little out of the box. Are you ready for this? I made sushi pizza. There is no dough, no tomato sauce and definitely no cheese here….

Pineapple Salsa

Looking for ways to bring a taste of summer to the middle of winter? Make something fresh! An easy salsa made with fresh ingredients is a great way to brighten up your meals and might even help fight the winter blues. This is the Pineapple Salsa from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. It is a very…

Zucchini Pesto Pasta

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you know that I love a really easy meal every so often. This pasta dish was definitely one of those occasions. There were only 3 main components to this dish: pasta, zucchini, pesto. Simple recipe is what lead to the straightforward recipe title. Let’s get one…
