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

Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Icing

Carrot Cake from www.bsinthekitchen.comI’ve always really liked carrot cake, but I’ve never actually made it before. This is likely because it’s one of my grandma’s specialities. However the calling came for a traditional dessert for a family dinner, I decided to give it a whirl and I’m quite happy with the results! It’s a classic homemade carrot cake that’s promised to make everyone happy. Continue reading

Churros – When Good Churros Go Bad

Churros - When Good Churros Go Bad | bsinthekitchen.com #dessert #churro #bsinthekitchen

This post is like a recipe and public service announcement all in one, read carefully, this could save you from disaster. Actually.

I should also mention, I didn’t make these with the intention of posting them on the blog, but after it was all said and done, I had to share the story, so I snapped some photos with my iPhone. (Thank god I didn’t have my actual camera on me! You’ll find out why, soon enough)

What began as an exciting foray into the cuisine of Spain, became a harrowing tale of disaster and determination, in what has become the scariest thing I have ever cooked.

Churros.

Pink Ombre Rose Cake

One of my good friends Lauren just celebrated her 30th birthday. Now, Lauren is one of the hardest working women I know. She works an office job and is also a professional photographer (and voted as our city’s best in 2012), so I knew she needed an extra special cake to help celebrate this milestone birthday! After seeing an ombre cake on Pinterest, I knew I wanted to give one  whirl. Now, don’t fret if you are thinking “that is way too detailed and complicated for me”. It’s not. It’s actually way easier than you think. Let’s get to the recipe, so I can show you how to make your own ombre cake! Continue reading

Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels

If anyone is looking for a fairly quick and impressive recipe, salted caramels may just be up your alley! I’ve made my original salted caramel recipe a few times now and just about have it down to a science, but this time I wanted to do something a bit different,so I decided to add some vanilla beans to it. Seriously though, who doesn’t love the warm aroma of vanilla beans and the gorgeous little brown specs of beans really add a level of sophistication to a dish. After making the original recipe and these Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels, I must admit that I LOVE the vanilla version. Let’s get to the recipe, so you can decide for yourself. Continue reading

Pumpkin & Pecan Crumble Tart

What’s a guy to do when he has a bunch of pumpkin pie filling and no desire to make dumplings anymore? No brainer. Go to the store, buy tart shells and start pouring in the rest of the filling! So that’s exactly what I did. Since I didn’t want to copy the last recipe exactly, I figured I’d spruce things up a bit with some pecans! (Which go very well with pumpkin I might add!)

Now this filling is a little bit different than your standard pumpkin pie, due to the fact that I started it out with cream cheese. What you end up with is a bit of a hybrid, pumpkin pie-cheescake thing going on which I enjoyed very much!
