Garlic & Thyme Prime Rib

Thyme & Garlic Prime Rib | bsinthekitchen.com #primerib #dinner #bsinthekitchen

This whole being a food photographer is working out pretty good for me lately! After completing a bunch of burger photos, I had an abundance of leftover ingredients, including this beautiful prime rib, which I felt would be a shame to put it in my freezer (it gives everything terrible freezer burn), so I set out a plan to cook it right away!

I kept it simple, rubbing the prime rib with thyme, garlic, salt, and pepper, and roasted it with a bunch of beautiful vegetables. The only thing left to do, was find a hot date! Fortunately my girlfriend loves red meat, vegetables, and me, so that was an easy sell! Oh yeah, and I had the red wine ready to go…It was an offer she couldn’t refuse!

Slow Cooker Chili

Slow Cooker Chili | bsinthekitchen.com #slowcooker #chili #bsinthekitchen

This post is inspired by neglect! Specifically by two things I’ve been neglecting – blogging, and my poor little slow cooker, tucked away under the sink. I suppose it could also be about my neglect for cooking substantial meals, as of late. Not much has changed over the past several months, I’m still very busy, which is awesome! I’ve been doing some cooking, but not as much as normal, and just haven’t been able to dedicate time to blogging.

Thanks to all the food photography projects I’ve been working, my fridge has been seeing a constant flow of ingredients, and after a couple of photoshoots, it just so happened that I had all the makings of chili! The perfect thing to cook when you’re busy. Just toss it in the slow cooker, and let it go.

Pan Roasted Pork Chop on Potato, Kale, & Broccoli with Pan Gravy

Pan Roast Pork Chop on Potato, Kale, & Broccoli with Pan Gravy | bsinthekitchen.com #pork #dinner #bsinthekitchen

Lately I have been very busy with work, which is great, but being self-employed, it often means I keep very strange hours, without a lot of structure to my day. As a result, my diet gets pretty messed up. Instead of having a work day broken up into 2 breaks and a lunch, I might wake up at 10:00AM one day, work until 4:00 in the morning, then have to get up at 7:00am the next day for a photoshoot, and due to the typical quick turnaround, stay up very lately again editing everything. I always eat breakfast (thank goodness!), but without structured breaks in my day, I might go 8 hours before realizing I haven’t ate anything substantial, which is BAD!

This past week, I’ve been focusing on having more structured meal times, and actually taking the time to cook something, instead of making a sandwich, eggs, or *GASP* toast with peanut butter and jam (I eat this way more than I would like to admit…it has become an addiction since I’ve started making my own sourdough bread). Even though I have been cooking regularly this week, I hadn’t taken the time to do anything for the blog, so after re-stocking my fridge with groceries, I was motivated to whip something up!

Rustic Italian Pizza

Rustic Italian Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #italian #bsinthekitchen

My recent adventures in pizza began last week, when I had a few people over for pizza before heading to the Beach House concert. Although I made many delicious pizzas, given that I was hosting people, I didn’t have time to take any pictures for the blog! Fortunately I had a bunch of dough leftover, and some free time, so I went about making some more delicious pizza for the blog.

Beet, Arugula, & Macedonian Feta Pizza with Honey Balsamic

Beet, Arugula, & Feta Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #beets #bsinthekitchen

This pizza has been on my mind for quite some time! After the popularity of my Beet, Arugula, and Goat Cheese Grilled Cheese, I thought that same idea would transfer quite well into pizza format! I was definitely right! Not only does this pizza look beautiful, the flavours were awesome.

Butternut Squash Soup with Sage Cream

Squash season is upon us! Unfortunately along with squash comes fall (which is beautiful), but it means winter is that much closer, and that means freezing cold weather! Fortunately, we have recipes to remedy that, like this delicious soup recipe from the always reliable Bon Appetit.

Cuban Sandwich (Cubano)

Cuban Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #cubansandwich #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

Look at that beautiful thing! A glorious Cuban Sandwich filled with roast pork, crackling, ham, pickles, swiss cheese, and mustard, all on fresh Cuban Bread! Delicious! Sandwiches get me going, as you can probably tell, and this one is no exception. When it was decided I would be hosting another Ethnic Potluck for the Ayden Kitchen & Bar crew, I was given the country of Cuba. It was meant to be! For the last potluck, I received Vietnam, and made this delicious Banh Mi, so it was only appropriate I receive another country known for delicious sandwiches!

Cuban Bread (Pan Cubano)

Cuban Bread | bsinthekitchen.com #cuban #bread #bsinthekitchen

The time has come for another Ethnic Potluck with the Ayden Kitchen & Bar crew, and this time I drew Cuba! What dish would I cook? Well, with my reputation for delicious sandwiches, and my last Ethnic Potluck contribution being a Banh Mi, it made perfect sense that I tackle the famous Cubano! Now, when serving Cuban Sandwiches to a room full of chefs, you can’t go about it half-assed! Although I have never been to Cuba, or had an authentic Cuban Sandwich, from my research, I knew the bread was a very important part. It’s a sandwich, so of course the bread is important. It’s half the damn thing!

The Spanish Deli Sandwich

The Spanish Deli Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #sandwich #lunch #bsinthekitchen

It has been quite some time since I have enjoyed a grilled sandwich, and as you know, they have kind of been this blog’s claim to fame! Being in the mood, I picked up some deli meat, and went about creating something with what else I had on hand. I knew the trio of Spanish deli meats would go great with the tomato coulis in my fridge, along with some homemade mayo, fresh bread, and other fresh ingredients from my garden, I was on my way to a killer sandwich!
