Mini Breakfast Strata

Mini Breakfast Strata | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #appetizer #bsinthekitchen

It’s that time of year again. Christmas! It’s also time for another BS’ in the Kitchen cooking segment on CTV Morning Live Saskatoon. Given that it is Christmas time, it was only appropriate to do something fitting of the season.

I was first introduced to strata by my girlfriend, whose Mom makes a large one for breakfast every Christmas morning. Being that I’m swamped with work, I really didn’t have time to think up some elaborate Christmas themed recipe, instead opting for a delicious dish that could be easily and quickly made for either a group breakfast, or even as an appetizer! So here you go, Mini Breakfast Strata! It is super delicious!

Candied Nuts

Candied Nuts | bsinthekitchen.com #appetizer #snack #bsinthekitchen

Well I think by the fact alone that I had to ask my brother to get the new password really goes to show how long I’ve been away from the blog! Yeesh! I can’t even think about the last time I’ve done a post, but I’m back and hopefully will post one or two more over the holidays. But like this post, things have been nuts lately between work, photography, life and with pulling days that start at 4:30 am and don’t wrap til 11:30pm, food, cooking and the blog has gotten the serious shaft. But enough talking, let’s get to this recipe: Candied Nuts! This is a great and extremely veristle recipe. Eat the nuts as a snack, as a dessert or a topping to a salad. However you eat it, these perfectly matched sweet and savoury nuts will be sure to please your palette!  Continue reading

Pomegranate Almond Overnight Oatmeal

Pomegranate Almond Oatmeal | bsinthekitchen.com #oatmeal #pomegranate #bsinthekitchen

I’ve been having the oatmeal cravings like mad lately. Perhaps it has something to do with the winter and feeling the need for a hearty/healthy breakfast, or maybe it’s because I keep seeing little mason jars filled with oatmeal and other wonderful things online? Just look at that beautiful little jar of goodness! I just want to dig my spoon in right now.

Thanks to my latest Tablespoon.com video project “How to Seed a Pomegranate”, I had an abundance of pomegranate seeds that needed to be used up and this seemed like the perfect opportunity!

Zucchini Pepperoni Pizzas

Zucchinis…you either love or hate them…or rather, you love them but then hate them because you have so many at the end of the gardening season that you can’t possibly fathom eating another one of those massive green squashes.

Yeah that sounds about right.

Breakfast Spaghetti Squash

Breakfast Spaghetti Squash | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #healthy #bsinthekitchen

Today I realized I hadn’t posted anything on this blog for the last month and a half…since starting this blog over three years ago, it’s been updated fairly regularly, and while there have been slow months, there has always been a few new recipes each month…until now…almost. Coming to that realization, I knew I needed to take some time today and at least post one thing, because I feel really bad about how neglected this blog has become.

For those who have been sticking around, I thank you! I definitely don’t want to neglect the blog, and have no plans to stop blogging, it’s just been a very busy several months. All though things are quite busy, it’s awesome and a blessing when starting your own business! Although I have been away from the blog, I’ve been doing plenty of food related work. I’ve continued shooting recipe videos  and blogging for tablespoon.com, creating and managing a visual marketing campaign for Ayden Kitchen & Bar (Top Chef Canada winner Dale MacKay’s new  restaurant), and more recently becoming the video editor for a hunting TV show! It’s been a busy few months, and I don’t see it slowing down, but i’m learning a ton, and getting better at managing several projects at once!

Spaghetti Squash & Meat Sauce

Spaghetti Squash & Meat Sauce | bsinthekitchen.com #healthy #dinner #bsinthekitchen

Here is a recipe that just makes sense! Taking traditional spaghetti and meat sauce, but swapping the pasta for squash. I apologize in advance to those who like very specific recipes. I made meat sauce the previous night and used the leftover sauce when making this, so i’m estimating the measurements, but hey! It’s a meat sauce. If you are measuring everything you’re doing it wrong! It’s all about adding in the main component, adding a dash of this, a dash of that, tasting, adjusting, and enjoying!

Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash | bsinthekitchen.com #squash #healthy #bsinthekitchen

It’s that time of the year… Squash season!

Thanks to my mother planting copious amount of spaghetti squash this year, I have been racking my brain, trying to think of different ways to use that delicious vegetable! In the past, I have always kept it quite simple, roasting the spaghetti squash, then mixing in some diced tomato and onion, which makes a perfectly delicious meal. But this time I wanted to really take advantage of the squash and the fact that it makes a perfect little boat for other ingredients when cut in half.

Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roasted Onions

Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roast Onions | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pork #bsinthekitchen

I must say September was a pretty pitiful month for blogging and I apologize for that! It’s not that I haven’t been cooking anything, I just haven’t been taking the time to edit the images, and write up a blog post. I’ve got a few recipes that are quite timely for this fall season, so you can expect a little more blogging this month!

Let’s start with this delicious meal featuring some wonderful ingredients from my mothers garden! The stars of the dish are delicious onions that have been drizzled with balsamic vinegar and roasted, as well as a hearty pork chop finished with chive butter. My house smelled so good after making this, it was a low level of torture, having to wait to eat this while smelling it and taking pictures.

Apple Ginger Chutney (Canning)

Apple Ginger Chutney (Canned)It’s hard to believe fall is already here with the trees transforming into hues of golden yellow, burnt red and rusted orange. While fall leaves some feeling a bit blue, knowing that summer is ending and winter is only around the corner, but for me – I LOVE it! Cool but still warm temperatures, the ability to relish in the last moments of the summer sun, the fashion (boots, boots, boots! Can’t forget the cozy scarves and sweaters) and not to mention great fishing, and something new for me this year – hunting! Another fall bonus is the harvest season – veggies and fruits galore!!! This year a friend shared some beautiful Saskatchewan grown apples with me, along with an apple pie and crisp that she and her mom made (This crisp was probably the best crisp I’ve ever had. The caramel like coated apples had me at first bite). You seriously can’t get a person that’s more kind and generous as she is! These apples deserved to be transformed into something delicious and this is where this recipe comes in, so let’s get to it.. Continue reading

Apple Pie Oatmeal

Apple Pie Oatmeal | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #apples #bsinthekitchen

I have been the fortunate recipient of a very large box of crab apples…

Unfortunately most of them aren’t ripe…

Having been picked a couple weeks too early, they are quite sour. In my efforts to use them up, I have been cooking the apples to sweeten them and using them as an oatmeal topping. As I was cooking the apples, it dawned on me “why am I not posting this on the blog?”. Of course, once that crossed my mind, I grabbed my camera and took a few shots so I could share it with all of you wonderful people!
