Grilled Peaches & Ice Cream

Grilled Peach & Ice Cream | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #barbecue #dessert

Continuing on with grilled peaches, I present the perfect summer dessert! Warm peaches, sweet honey, vanilla ice cream, candied walnuts, and fresh herbs, does it get any better!? I don’t know! But if it does, I can hardly imagine the glory! 

The fact that this dessert is not only super simple, but super delicious, makes it a big winner in my books! It’s summer. You want to relax, have some drinks, chat with friends. Not slave away over a dessert all day!

Fried Egg, Sriracha, & Peanut Butter Toasts

Fried Egg, Sriracha, & Peanut Butter Toast | bsinthekitchen.com #sriracha #toast #bsinthekitchen

When I first saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, it was so strange, I couldn’t not try it. I showed it to my room-mates, Celeste and Ross, and we were all intrigued enough to test it out.

Of course, we couldn’t just leave the recipe alone, so we added a fried egg, and the results were quite amazing! After eating it, we realized this toast actually made perfect sense! It had a lot of flavours typically used in Asian cuisine, with its use of peanut, sriracha, green onion, cilantro, and lime.

Asian Steak Sandwich

Asian Steak Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #steak #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

I’m gonna go right ahead and say that I have the best room-mates ever! Nathan is an executive chef, Ross is a cook, and Celeste is a pastry Chef. Needless to say, some pretty awesome culinary happenings have a tendency of going down here!

Thanks to Celeste’s sourdough starter she calls “Fester”, we have a steady supply of fresh sourdough bread being baked up every few days. Last night as Celeste made a couple loaves, she did some experimentation with one of them, and added sesame seeds. Not only did it turn out delicious, but it inspired me to create an “Asian Steak Sandwich”, which was not only beautiful, but delicious!

Barbecue season is upon us, warm weather is here, and summer is on its way! Thanks to a very busy several months being stuck in my basement, editing a TV show, I am now experiencing uncontrollable cravings for warm weather and vitamin D! Fortunately, the weekly deadlines are done, and my schedule is a little more flexible, so I can finally enjoy this wonderful weather!

Homemade Ginger Beer

Homemade Ginger Beer | bsinthekitchen.com #gingerbeer #ginger #bsinthekitchen

Ginger beer is something I’ve been wanting to try making for years, and even though I knew it was relatively simple, I just never got around to doing it! My day finally came two weeks ago when I had yet another Ethnic Potluck with the team from Ayden Kitchen & Bar (you may remember the last Ethnic Potluck via my Banh Mi). This time I was in charge for making a dish from Jamaica!

Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese

Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #sandwich #grilledcheese #bsinthekitchen

What needs to be said about this one? They have chili cheese fries, chili cheese dogs, chili cheese nachos, so the next logical step (at least for me) is a Chili Cheese Grilled Cheese! Plenty of hearty chili, loads of cheese, sandwiched between two buttery slices of bread.

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese

Chicken Cordon Bleu Grilled Cheese | bsinthekitchen.com #grilledcheese #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Many of my grilled cheese creations stem from deconstructing a traditional dish, and turning it into a sandwich format (because sandwiches are simply the best!). For this one, I took my inspiration from the classic Chicken Cordon Bleu, a dish where chicken is stuffed with ham and swiss cheese, and often covered with a creamy sauce. Now you can enjoy this savoury meal between your fingertips instead of with fork and knife!

Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese

Now I’m no authority on Philly Cheese Steaks, I haven’t had many in my life, but I must admit to fantasizing about those delicious things on more than one occasion. Plenty of meat, cheese, caramelized onions, and whatever you may want to add on to it! A sandwich after my own heart! Or just a sandwich trying to stop my own heart…

Well folks, my intentions were good, I really wanted to focus on posting more regularly, and then I failed!! I have been doing a fair amount of cooking and taking pictures for the blog, but I just haven’t taken the time to actually blog the recipes! This all changes right now, because it’s that time of the year again! NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE MONTH! Perhaps you remember the epic celebration we had on the blog last year, doing a new grilled cheese recipe every day. If not, last years video will certainly jog your memory!

I hate to break it to you guys, but this year I’m not going to be doing quite an epic celebration of grilled cheese. Fortunately, I have a few recipes that I have been saving for this month, so I’m excited to share them with you all finally! Let’s start it off!

Braised Wild Boar

IMG_2086-1Well it’s sad to say, but Bob and I haven’t blogged in over a month (and largely Bob’s been steering the blog ship with more recent posts – thanks Bob). But we’ve both been busy just soaking up life, getting our hands dirty with our careers and our photography/videography businesses, but last weekend we did have a enough time to get in a sibling wild boar hunt. Yup, you heard correctly, a wild boar hunt. Bob was behind the camera recording an episode for Maximus Outdoor TV and I was behind my new archery bow. The hunt was successful with a large boar (click HERE if you want to see a photo) and when you put in work into providing your own meat, along with the guidance from our outfitter Wild Boar Adventures, you really want to make sure you follow up with a delicious tasting meal. So let’s get to it, because this recipe is exactly that! Continue reading
