Tahini Fudge

I am not a big fan of tahini but my mom loves it so she wanted me to make this recipe. So I made it for her but I tried to keep an open mind for myself too. Also, I’m not a big fudge eater, it’s just usually way too sweet and I can only…

(Not Terrible) Lentil Soup

Yes, it is Monday so this is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101. The name of this really is “Not Terrible Lentil Soup”. I guess it’s pretty common to have bad lentil soup, I fortunately have never experienced that. But I can say that this soup was quite delicious. I liked that it was a…

Southwestern Pasta Salad

It’s Monday so I have another Thug Kitchen 101 recipe to share! Today I have the Southwestern Pasta Salad. I love pasta salads because they are a great make ahead dish so they’re perfect for parties or weekly meal planning. Another reason to love them is that you can use up so many ingredients in…

I loved those so much and I will include the links below for some of my faves so that you can try…

Maple Roasted Sweet Potatoes

Here I am with another recipe from the Thug Kitchen cookbook! This one was a really easy one and I had no doubts that it would turn out well. This was a really simple preparation of sweet potatoes. They are coated with maple syrup, chili powder and smoked paprika, then get roasted in a pretty…

Brown Sugar Blueberry Polenta Scones

I got a new cookbook! It’s called thug kitchen 101. It’s the second book in the thug kitchen series of cookbooks. It is a fully vegan book which means no dairy, eggs or meat. If you’ve never heard of this book, I will warn that the vocabulary is a little vulgar and not G rated….
