Chickpea & Green Chile Soup

The weather has been pretty inconsistent the past few days, so I thought it would be a good time to make something warm. Since it is Monday, this is a recipe from the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. This is the Chickpea & Green Chile Soup. This was a super flavourful soup with nice Mexican flare….

Pasta Piselli

It’s Monday, who’s ready for this week?! I feel like some Mondays (but really any day), I just have no energy to make an “exciting” or “interesting” dish for dinner. But since doing this cookbook challenge, I no longer have to worry about what to make. I can just flip through the book and pick…

Creamsicles

Is there a better summer treat than a popsicle? I don’t think so. Sure you can go out and buy a pack from the store, but they are pretty easy to make yourself too. In addition to simplicity, they are also very customizable. You can make a popsicle out of almost anything. Basically if it…

Red Cabbage Slaw

My posts last week were all on the sweet side – Pineapple Slush, Banana Snickers, Birthday Cake – so I’m starting this week back on the savoury side! Since it’s Monday, this is another recipe from Thug Kitchen 101. Side note before I get into this post: I have almost made 40 recipes from this…

Pineapple Cucumber Slushie

Who doesn’t love a cold beverage? They are perfect to keep cool in the summer, especially with the recent heat wave that has impacted many areas. This is the Pineapple-Cucumber Slushie from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I haven’t had a slushie in so long, I used to get them at the gas station when I…

Japchae

I’ve eaten japchae a couple times so I was excited to make it myself. This is a delicious Korean noodle and vegetable dish, similar to a stir fry. I think what distinguishes japchae is that it is made with glass noodles (made of sweet potato or mung bean starch), which give a great chewy texture….

Taco Salad Bowls

Is there anything more summery than a super colourful and fresh salad? Today’s recipe is from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. You know I love Mexican food so having all the flavours of a delicious taco in the form of a salad is a perfect way to go! This was one of the most colourful salads…

Pot of Collards

Have you ever eaten collard greens? Before this, I had not. I always like cooking with new ingredients, as long as I know what to do with them. I do like my greens like kale and spinach but I’ve just never tackled collards. I’ve watched cooking shows where they make collards, and it usually contains…
