Roasted Rutabaga Wedges

Most of the recent recipes that I’ve made from Thug Kitchen 101 have been full meals – Tomato Carbonara, Mujaddara, Red Curry Noodles, Barley Fried Rice. But today, I am switching things up. This week’s recipe is a simple side dish: roasted rutabagas. Now, you may be looking at the picture and thinking that those…

Chickpea Noodle Soup

I know it’s almost mid-May and the weather is getting a little warmer, but I still love a nice hot bowl of soup. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer or winter, I will always enjoy a steamy soup. Today’s recipe is such a classic recipe too which makes it better. This is Chickpea Noodle Soup…

Red Curry Noodles

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love curries. I’ve made many before, both Indian and Thai and they are always delicious. Today’s curry is a Thai one with noodles, tofu and lots of veggies. This is my Monday recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I think I’m partial to Thai curry…

Puppy Chow

I know I’ve posted a few sweets in the past couple of weeks but I see nothing wrong with that. Who doesn’t like sweets! I’m loving how easy all the dessert recipes have been as well! This week’s Monday recipe from Thug Kitchen 101 is Puppy Chow. I’ve heard of this treat before but never…

Mujaddara

Happy meatless Monday! This week’s Thug Kitchen 101 recipe is a new one for me. The dish is called Mujaddara which is made with rice, lentils and caramelized onions. Those are the big components and they are seasoned with lots of fragrant Middle Eastern spices. It was quite an interesting recipe to read through because…

Sun Dried Tomato Carbonara

Happy April! Also Happy Easter and belated Passover to all those who celebrate/celebrated! There are so many celebrations today. I took last week off to enjoy Passover with my family and give myself a chance to relax a bit. But I am back and I have lots of good content that I will be posting…

Instant Oatmeal Smoothie

You know I love oatmeal. You can find a lot of oatmeal posts on my blog (a mix of my own recipes, as well as ones from online and cookbooks). Also, it doesn’t matter whether it’s hot or cold, I can’t get enough of it. One thing that is newer to me though, is adding…

Winter Veggie Slaw

Happy Monday! I can’t believe March is already half over. I’m here with another recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This is the Winter Veggie Slaw with Caramelized Shallot Dressing. The coleslaw mix was supposed to be a combination of green and red cabbages, fennel and carrot. I made a few changes. I omitted…

Swiss Chard & Tomato Linguine

Welcome back for another “Bad Manners Monday”, where I cook a recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This week I made this Swiss Chard & Tomato Linguine with Balsamic Glazed Chickpeas. It’s quite the long title, I know. This was a tasty pasta dish though. Like the title implies, this recipe had linguine, swiss…

Hot Chocolate

It’s March which means winter is technically coming to an end very soon. But until the weather gets warmer, I will still drink lots of hot beverages. In the winter, when I want a hot drink, I will usually make myself some tea. So that’s what I will choose about 90% of the time. But…
