Rustic Italian Pizza

Rustic Italian Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #italian #bsinthekitchen

My recent adventures in pizza began last week, when I had a few people over for pizza before heading to the Beach House concert. Although I made many delicious pizzas, given that I was hosting people, I didn’t have time to take any pictures for the blog! Fortunately I had a bunch of dough leftover, and some free time, so I went about making some more delicious pizza for the blog.

Beet, Arugula, & Macedonian Feta Pizza with Honey Balsamic

Beet, Arugula, & Feta Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #beets #bsinthekitchen

This pizza has been on my mind for quite some time! After the popularity of my Beet, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese, I thought that same idea would transfer quite well into pizza format! I was definitely right! Not only does this pizza look beautiful, the flavours were awesome.

Pumpkin Spice Yogurt & Granola

Pumpkin Spice Yogurt Parfait | bsinthekitchen.com #pumpkinspice #breakfast #bsinthekitchen

Continuing my journey into pumpkin spiced everything, I present to you Pumpkin Spice Yogurt & Granola! Although this is more of a breakfast meal, I whipped it up late last night, thanks to midnight snack cravings… I was originally just going to have a little yogurt and granola, when I remembered I had a container of leftover Spiced Pumpkin Mix, from making homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes. I figured it would probably be delicious in my little snack, so I tried it out, and sure enough it was! Good enough, that I made it again today for the blog!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

Pumpkin Spice Latte | bsinthekitchen.com #pumpkinspicelatte #starbucks #bsinthekitchen

Nothing says fall like Pumpkin Spice Lattes, am I right!?

Truth be told, I’m not really a fan of the syrupy excuse of a latte they serve at Starbucks, so what is one to do when that’s the case?

Make your own damn pumpkin spice latte!

Yeah that’s right.

Stick it to the man, skip the line of vibrating caffeine zombies at Starbucks, and whip up your own delicious version. Not only do you know what ingredients are in it, it’s WAY cheaper, and won’t taste like syrup.

Spiced Pumpkin Mix

Spiced Pumpkin Mix | bsinthekitchen.com #pumpkin #pumpkinspice #bsinthekitchen

It’s pumpkin spiced ERTHANG season! Rather than let it slip by without participating, I figured it was best to fully embrace it. Starting with this spiced pumpkin mix, which will be the base for my next two recipes, and can be used for so much more!

Ever since everything became pumpkin spiced, I promised my girlfriend, Shannon, that we would make homemade Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Hunting around for recipes, we settled on this one from The Kitchn. Although it was pretty tasty, the recipe called for a lot of pepper, ginger, vanilla and sugar. We adjusted the sugar by half, and cut down big time on the vanilla, but I had already blended the pepper in the pumpkin spice mix, so we just went with it! Definite emphasis on the SPICE, it was strangely spicy, which was alright for the first two sips, but ended up being a bit much after that, so I adjusted the pepper and ginger to a much more appropriate level here.

Pumpkin Pie Spice

This right here…this is powerful… Let’s be honest with ourselves, pumpkin pie isn’t really about the pumpkin is it? There are a multitude of other ingredients you could probably swap in for pumpkin, and you wouldn’t know the difference, as long as you’ve got this magical fall fairy dust. Pumpkin pie spice! A wonderful concoction of spices that immediately conjures up warm, fuzzy feelings, and makes you feel like you’re wearing a flannel shirt!

Squash season is upon us! Unfortunately along with squash comes fall (which is beautiful), but it means winter is that much closer, and that means freezing cold weather! Fortunately, we have recipes to remedy that, like this delicious soup recipe from the always reliable Bon Appetit.

Cuban Sandwich (Cubano)

Cuban Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #cubansandwich #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Look at that beautiful thing! A glorious Cuban Sandwich filled with roast pork, crackling, ham, pickles, swiss cheese, and mustard, all on fresh Cuban Bread! Delicious! Sandwiches get me going, as you can probably tell, and this one is no exception. When it was decided I would be hosting another Ethnic Potluck for the Ayden Kitchen & Bar crew, I was given the country of Cuba. It was meant to be! For the last potluck, I received Vietnam, and made this delicious Banh Mi, so it was only appropriate I receive another country known for delicious sandwiches!
