Spellbinding Thug Kitchen Biryani

Okay, so this time I’d got my beady eyes on the One-Pot Chickpea Biryani from Thug Kitchen 101: Fast as Fuck. I’ve actually been wanting to try this recipe since when I first got the book, but the Spaghetti Pie ended up seducing me into cooking it first. Like a lover that’s been slighted, the…

For a Good Time Stress Your Way to Relaxation.

The thugs promised me a relaxing-ass evening if I made this yummy pasta dish: Swiss chard and tomato linguine with balsamic-glazed chickpeas. I’ve gotta say, I friggin needed to relax.
