    I've read enough to know I'd like a copy, cooking times are listed as well as if the recipe is good for leftovers or freezer friendly! A fair assortment of good busy people or bachelor recipes, less basic cooking info compared to their first book.Still no nutritional information though...

    I've never read a cook book from cover to cover before, and I've never read one that has literally made me laugh out loud. Until today. I haven't eaten meat in over 3 weeks, and I'm getting bored with eating the same things over and over. So I picked up this book to get some new option...

    Thug Kitchen makes the only vegetarian/vegan cookbooks I've ever run across that had multiple recipes I can easily enjoy despite being an omnivore. I like their view that kale and turmeric is overrated, and I identify with the "thug" language, since I swear like a trucker when I cook. ...
