Ramen w/ Homemade Broth

Is there anything more comforting than a bowl of chicken noodle soup? To me, this is just the ultimate food to warm me up. Today, I decided to take its classic comfort and add some Japanese flare to make ramen. I have made ramen before (post here) and it was delicious. That time, I used…

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…

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…

Italian Wedding Soup

Did you know that despite how the name suggests, Italian wedding soup is not served at Italian weddings. The name comes from the Italian words “minestra maritata” which means “married soup”. It refers to the marriage of flavours from the meat and greens that go into it. I thought that was pretty interesting. Now that…

Vegetarian McMuffin Sandwiches

I love breakfast sandwiches. They have all the great components of a nice breakfast – bread, eggs, cheese, meat/sausage – but they’re in a handheld version. And you know I always enjoy eating with my hands. We all know which fast food giant created the McMuffin, it’s been around for a long time. But I’m…
