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

Roasted Marshmallows & Baileys

Roasted Marshmallows & Baileys | bsinthekitchen.com #camping #baileys #bsinthekitchen

Thanks to my dad’s rigorous tournament fishing schedule every summer, my family did a LOT of camping, going nearly every weekend! As such, I have many fond memories growing up that revolve around our camping expeditions. Singing “Down by the Bay” as many times as possible to annoy Carlene, making every funny face I could think of while driving to annoy Carlene, “accidentally” crossing over “The Line” of the backseat to annoy Carlene… Okay so you get it, I spent a lot of time trying to annoy my sister!

Watch us enjoy it on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon!

Now for the sweet (and beautiful) crepe! Along with making the Green Onion Parmesan Crepe for our CTV Morning Live Mother’s Day special, we decided these red velvet crepes would be another great option.

I had this for breakfast…don’t judge me.

Come on, it’s not that bad, plenty of dairy, fruit, some carbs, a little sugar to get that blood pressure up, add in a cup off  coffee and you’re ready for an epic day.

Anyways…

**Watch us make this grilled cheese on live television!**

Cannoli with a Ricotta Cheese Filling

Homemade Cannolis with Ricotta Cheese Filling from bsinthekitchen.com | #dessert #cannoli # bsinthekitchenI have some exciting news to share with everyone – I’ve recently accepted a new job in the world of potash and phosphate.  While I am very excited to start my new role, I’m sad to say fair well to colleagues and friends at my current job in transportation. A good friend at work has been requesting cannolis for a while, so I knew I had to make them for her on my last day (even though I know we will stay friends, we just won’t be seeing each other every day). These were a bit scary for me to make as I’ve never eaten a cannoli in my life, so I had nothing to compare it to and it involved using oil to fry the cannoli pastries (reference: Bob’s disaster with frying pastry), but hey, sometimes you just have to jump off the cliff and hope you fly. This time it worked out in my favour and they actually were way easier to make than I thought. Let’s get to the recipe. Continue reading

Blood Orange Greek Yogurt with Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar

Blood Orange Greek Yogurt with Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #dessert #bsinthekitchen

As with most people, what I eat is often dictated by what I have left in my fridge. In this case it was Greek yogurt and blood oranges. Peeling the orange, and tossing them into a bowl, I sweetened it with some honey and added a drizzle of chocolate balsamic vinegar for some pizzazz, and had myself a wonderful breakfast!

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffee Cake | bsinthekitchen.com #dessert #coffee #bsinthekitchen

Nothing says Valentines Day like coffee cake right? Well for me, it’s a simple equation, COFFEE = LOVE, so when my girlfriend Megan (The Microwave Master) had to figure out what to get me for Valentines Day, she settled on baking me a coffee cake! Given that she has only baked for me once during our nearly three year relationship, it was sure to be an undertaking! Initially she was going to make it as a surprise, but since I was in charge of supper, and already at her house, we made it together, which was 100% better, because i’m always bugging her to cook with me! It was a wonderful gift, and while I didn’t have my camera on me at the time, I made sure to get some photos the next day so I could document this beautiful cake, and create Megan’s FIRST BLOG POST! YAAAA! Maybe she will become a food blogger too! (Pig’s can fly right?).

Anyways, here is the recipe, slightly modified from The Tasty Bite’s Buttermilk Coffee Cake.

Old Fashioned Banana Cream Pie

Old Fashioned Banana Cream Pie | #bsinthekitchen #bananacreampie

How this pie came about was a bit strange because for some odd reason I was craving a Banana Cream Pie or a Coconut Cream Pie (I think I’ll make that one next), but I’ve never had a slice of Banana Cream Pie in my life; or not that I can remember anyways. Regardless of where this craving came from, I hustled into the kitchen to whip up my first Banana Cream Pie.  Let’s get to the recipe so you can satisfy your own cravings. Continue reading
