I just bought the Thug Kitchen Official Cookbook! [livejournal.com profile] sarea_okelani brought it to my attention a few months ago, and reading it is a delight. It yells at you in a completely supportive way and makes you want to take control of your crappy, tiny kitchen. For example, this caption on their whole wheat biscuits recipe: Make your own biscuits because that store-bought shit is shady as hell. Food shouldn't be packaged like a stick of explosives. That shit is unnatural. Heh. I haven't made anything from it yet; it just arrived yesterday. But I'm excited to! Maybe I'll even post the results! But let's not get our hopes up about that!

I also like those really metal recipes on tumblr, like this one for a waffle ice-cream sandwich: ONCE YOU HAVE THOSE TWO LITTLE SHITS IN YOUR HAND THROW THEM ACROSS THE ROOM SO THAT THEY LAND PERFECTLY IN YOUR TOASTER. IF YOUR AIM SUCKS ASS JUST PUT THEM IN GENTLY WHILE TRASH TALKING YOUR TOASTER BECAUSE YOU’RE STILL HARDCORE. Hell yeah. I guess what this tells us is that being yelled at about cooking really gets my ass in gear.

Also purchased a handheld milk frother, which is SUPER COOL :D I'm going to froth EVERYTHING.

I've read the Thug Kitchen blog and it is hysterical. The swearing never fails to make me laugh.
