Feast Your Fucking Face Off

Over the holidays we all like to eat right? Over the Easter break I wanted to make sure we had some good eats in the fridge…For you know…snacking. So I went a bit Thug Kitchen ballistic. We feasted for days. I also made these home-made chocolates because, well….snacking. And they’re way fucking healthier than store-bought crap,…

KAPOW! : Thug Kitchen White Bean and Cabbage Soup

Holy Flying Fuck-Monkeys! So I just listened to one of the latest Thug Kitchen podcasts – A.K.A. Forked Up – and it was the podcast where they interview Laila Ali about her new cookbook ‘Food For Life.’ It sorta head-fucked me a bit because in it Laila Ali talks about how her eating has changed since discovering…

Arugula Potato Salad with Fennel

I’ve been away for a while. I didn’t go far though. I was just over here on my couch, binge watching ‘Chef’s Table’ on Netflix, and contemplating the meaning of life, the meaning of food, the meaning of guacamole. I’ve been doing more cooking recently, and less writing. I blame it on the Thugs and my…

Confessions of a Snackoholic

I’m health kickin’ it right now. It’s all leafy green stuff, and quinoa, and buckwheat, and herbal teas. I even found some kelp powder in my cupboard that I considered using somehow. Maybe I’ll throw it in a smoothie. Maybe I’ll snort it. Who knows. (I didn’t even know what kelp was till yesterday.)  I was snack…

Why Shun Valentine’s Day When You Can Stay in and Eat Cabbage?

Quinoa Nachos with Tex-Mex Queso

Quinoa. So fucking versatile. This Andean amino-acid and protein bomb, has been used in so many different ways. From savoury dishes to friggin’ baked goods, it’s always found a way to sneak itself into a party. It’s like that one friend who just gets along with EVERYBODY. Quinoa is like the anti-clique friend who weaves seamlessly from one…

Thug Kitchen Frosted Ginger Bites. Trust me. Don’t Make These.

  Do you ever have times where you can’t sleep at night for no apparent reason? At first your thoughts start out friendly, but then they plan some crazy mutiny and take over the ship. They start you doubt-looping shit that you said or did during the day, or if they’re feeling generous they might treat you to memories…

Happy New Year: 10 Thug Kitchen Cocktails

Welcome to 2018.* So on New Years Eve our plan was to keep it low-key: To stay in and have some food, some drinks, maybe play some games and then at midnight check out the fireworks which are INSANE in our neighbourhood. Like if you suffer from PTSD that’s the LAST place you wanna be at midnight….

Cucumber Salad with Peanuts and Cilantro

Okay let’s set the scene. Christmas has been and gone. There are so many glittery decorations all over your house and bits of crumpled up wrapping paper that it looks like Christmas has thrown up in there. You live in a small place anyway but now it starts to feel claustrophobic from all the tinsel hanging down from the ceiling, empty boxes on…

Putting the Whore back in Whore-d’oeuvres

Having cooked all 115 recipes from the first Thug Kitchen cookbook, I moved on to the others. I’m enjoying every minute of it, as I’m sure you can tell. Christmas is a batshit crazy time. Everybody knows it, yet no one really questions it. Everyone is on their ‘Best Behaviour’ during December because the so-called “Santa Claus”…
