Yeah, plenty of blogs and cookbooks preach about how to eat more kale, why ginger fights inflammation, and how to cook with microgreens and nettles. But they are dull or pretentious as hell--and most people can't afford the hype.
Thug Kitchen lives in the real world. In their first cookbook, they're throwing down more than 100 vegan recipes for their best-loved meals, snacks, and sides for beginning cooks to home chefs. (Roasted Beer and Lime Cauliflower Tacos? Pumpkin Chili? Grilled Peach Salsa? Believe that sh*t.) Plus they're going to arm you with all the info and techniques you need to shop on a budget and go and kick a bunch of ass on your own.
This book is an invitation to everyone who wants to do better to elevate their kitchen game. No more ketchup and pizza counting as vegetables. No more drive-thru lines. No more avoiding the produce corner of the supermarket. Sh*t is about to get real.
The creators of the New York Times bestselling cookbook series Thug Kitchen are back to give you a crash course to help you to take the leap into healthy eating, starting with their signature fresh, California-inspired food.
Thug Kitchen 101 includes more than 100 easy, accessible recipes to give you a solid start toward a better diet like sweet potato al pastor tacos, firecracker salad, chickpea and green chili soup, and no-bake cookies. And it serves up food facts along with helpful tips and tricks so you'll feel confident knowing exactly what the f*ck you're making.
All recipes in TK 101 are guaranteed to be quicker than take out, so you can cook some tasty meals with simple ingredients regardless of when you stumble home from work. No excuses. It's delicious, healthy, homemade food for all the full-time hustlers out there.

Petroksi’s paper was The Long Island Press, whose headlines ran to COP SAVES OLD WOMAN FROM THUG and DiMAG SAYS BUMS CAN’T WIN SERIES. Folding it into a tube suitable for throwing was an exercise in post-Euclidean geometry. Maintaining a Schwinn revealed volumes about mechanics. Reading Paperboy, we also learn about the hazing rituals of its namesakes, the aesthetics of kitchen appliances, and the delicate art of penny-pitching. With gratifying reflections on these and other lessons of a bygone era–lessons about diligence, labor, and community-mindedness–Paperboy is a piece of Americana to cherish and reread.

In Cornelia Guest's Simple Pleasures, she reveals the secrets of understated elegance she learned from her parents and the family's extraordinary friends. Her favorite simple recipes are so delicious, even the most fervent carnivores do not miss the meat, and her tips on entertaining take the stress out of any event. Her ulterior motive is to inspire readers to have fun experimenting with healthy alternatives and to change the way they think about food.
She shows readers how to incorporate affordable, cruelty-free eating into their daily lives and how to serve that wholesome food to friends. Organized by season, each section begins with a luscious meal—a light spring lunch of chilled asparagus soup and quinoa salad, an alfresco summer dinner of veggie carpaccio and stuffed squash blossoms, a fall breakfast buffet of pecan waffles, faux buttermilk pancakes, and raspberry muffins, and a cozy winter's dinner of shepherd's pie with a chocolate tart for dessert. Each season contains recipes for beverages, soups, salads, pasta, side dishes, main courses, and an abundance of desserts that everyone will love. Special sections feature recipes for grains, greens, and beans. Her favorite chefs, doctors, a veterinarian, and other health experts have contributed sidebars with tips, advice, and eye-opening information.
Dismissing fussy food and pretention, she believes the key to entertaining well is simplicity. Cornelia Guest's Simple Pleasures is filled with advice on how to set a lively and original table, how to bring nature inside, even how to stay calm in the face of entertaining disasters. She shows how a little thought and effort makes it a snap to create a relaxed, warm atmosphere and fabulous food free of animal products that will not only please family and friends but will also allow you to enjoy your own party.
Richly illustrated with photographs of personal memorabilia and of Templeton, her legendary home, the book captures the feeling of a well-lived life. Cheerful, colorful, and unpretentious, Simple Pleasures will give readers all they need to know to cook in the most nutritious way possible and to serve it up with great style.

Cooling soups for spring and summer include Creamy Horseradish Parsley Soup, Celeriac Arugula Soup with Coconut Cream and Crispy Chickpeas and Chilled Creamy Borscht.
Packed with fresh produce, healthy grains and fantastic flavors, these meat and dairy-free soups are perfect for dinner, and make convenient and affordable next-day lunches for everyone.
Cydney has worked hard to get ahead at college and at her job, but she's worked hardest of all to keep her family from shattering what she's so carefully built. Cydney loves her Momma, no question, but watching the once beautiful and vibrant Nan Williams sink deeper and deeper into addiction is more than she can bear.
Cydney's brother, Shammond Slay, is another story. Handsome, charismatic Shammond was once a promising athlete. Now he's living a lavish lifestyle with no visible means of support…and whatever is behind it can't be legal. To Cydney, her brother is two different people: protective, generous Shammond, and destructive street-thug Slay. Like Cydney, he's a damaged soul, but unlike his sister, he's not willing to let go of his bitterness, or his family. And now, with everything Cydney cares about on the line, she'll have to face secrets, betrayals and the consequences of her own choices before she can claim the new life and sweet love she's always wanted….
