Fried Egg on Sourdough, Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, & Herbs

Fried Egg on Sourdough, Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, & Herbs | bsinthekitchen.com #friedegg #sourdough #bsinthekitchen

After years (and years, and years…) of reaping the benefits of my mother’s gardening efforts, I finally started a garden in my own backyard this year. Needless to say, I have learned how much work goes into building a garden, and while it has been hard work, it has also been extremely rewarding!  Naturally, having a garden has influenced on my cooking, with all the fresh herbs and vegetables just a few steps out my back door! Along with gardening, I have started making sourdough bread quite frequently (at least once a week), which has resulted in a lot of bread sneaking into my meals as well!

That is where this delicious creation comes along. The other week after weeding the garden, I realized I hadn’t eaten for quite some time, so as per usual, I made a quick fried egg sandwich. Of course, with all the fresh bread, herbs, and vegetables, I had to incorporate some into my sandwich! The results were quite delicious, and it got me thinking about making it again, but classing it up a bit.

Honey Cinnamon Butter

Honey Cinnamon Butter | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #honey #butter

This stuff is like spreading crack on your biscuits. It may become very difficult to stop eating whatever is lucky enough to be lathered in this delicious “butter”! You could just spread butter on your bread, then honey, and sprinkle cinnamon after, but why not just take a second, whip all this together into one delicious spread?

I highly recommend it.

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!

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!

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!

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!

Cherry Scones with Saskatchewan Sour Cherries

Cherry Scones with Saskatchewan Sour Cherries

Now don’t get too shocked when you read this next sentence: helloit’s Carlene here. I know….. I’m slightly ashamed to say I haven’t blogged in the past four months… yes FOUR months. Luckily Bob has been able to keep everyone up to date with some delicious recipes while I took on the challenge of a new job and a completely new schedule, said “see you when I see you” to a dear friend who lost his courageous battle with cancer, took a new focus on myself and those who matter most to me and continued to tackle my photography business. While food was still a centerpiece in my life over the past four months, unfortunately the blog got the shortest stick while I took some quality “me” time to figure what life really is about and what truly matters. I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s not money, a job, things or status. It comes down to time and who you choose to share it with and who chooses to value yours and share theirs back in exchange.  Within that shared time is where memories are made and friendships take life. Perhaps it’s time that is the most valued commodity, not gold, gas or oil, and the one true gift you can share with those who matter most to you.

After taking some of time to “spend” on me, I’m back in action with a fresh cherry scone recipe using Saskatchewan cherries picked from our parent’s orchard. Let’s get to this recipe… Continue reading

Breakfast Pizza

Breakfast Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #breakfast #bsinthekitchen

The Breakfast Pizza – the end of a trilogy! This also marks the 4th day in a row that I have eaten pizza. I can’t complain though, pizza is a wonderfully balanced meal in my eyes (and stomach)!

I figured it was time to try making a breakfast pizza, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! Not only did it gift my nostrils with the pleasant aroma of my breakfast favourites, the flavour was wonderful! Combining breakfast classics onto thin, airy pizza crust, how could you go wrong? Well you can’t! Unless you burn it of course…

Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast

Cinnamon Toast Crunch French Toast | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #cereal #bsinthekitchen

During a recent trip to Toronto, I had delicious cereal crusted french toast for breakfast that left me inspired to create something similar! The french toast had a corn flake crust, giving it a crunchy, slightly sweet exterior, but rather than copying the recipe exactly, I went ahead and used Cinnamon Toast Crunch for my version!

This french toast was rich, crunchy, and sweet, perfect for those times you really want to spoil yourself for breakfast!
