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…

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…

Viral Tortilla Wrap

It’s fun to try the trends that it seems everyone has been making. This tortilla wrap started going around on social media about a month ago and it’s gone crazy! I will say, I’ve made a few myself and I just love it. There’s nothing complex about it, it’s such a simple yet fun way…

I’ve been loving celebrating random national food days. The last one I did was earlier this month with the Cream Cheese Alfredo for national spaghetti day – see the post (click here). The holiday I’m celebrating today is national blueberry pancake day which is actually tomorrow (January 28). This was a super easy breakfast (or…

Wow it’s already the last week of January! This Monday’s Thug Kitchen recipe was a creamy one. This is the Creamy Squash Mac and Cheese with Hot Sauce Bread Crumbs. As you know, this cookbook is vegan, so there was no cheese or milk in the pasta dish. The sauce was made by blending up…

These are the Banana Chocolate Chip Cookies from Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. I know they may look like regular chocolate…

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…
