Here is a recipe I created the same day I made the delicious Smoked Salmon Bagel Grilled Cheese. Given that I wanted to keep things grilled cheese focused during April, I have kept from posting it until now! Although for anybody following me on Instagram, you might remember seeing it!
As I have previously mentioned, I’m not crazy about smoked salmon, often finding it far too pungent, but it’s a whole different story here! Well balanced with a number of other ingredients, namely fresh dill, capers and sour cream, the smoked salmon enters into a beautiful union of flavours!

Baked eggs have been on my food bucket list for quite some time now, although I don’t actually have a food bucket list (it’s more just a mental list). Maybe I should start one and share it with you guys? We can eat our way through it together! Now i’m on to something…

Yesterday I posted a simple Roasted Cauliflower recipe, and today I am following it up with this delicious roasted cauliflower mash! Given how impressed I was with the flavour of the roasted cauliflower, I was even more impressed with these faux mashed potatoes! They were awesome!

Let’s start by saying I don’t really like cauliflower, but I bought some because it was on sale…story of my life. I had high hopes for this head of cauliflower, but I felt the light fading as it sat in my fridge for one month…and then another month…
Yeah. Two months.

Here is some new news for all your BS’ers out there: I’ve started a new job in Communications in the world of potash! I work out at one of our mine sites, about forty minutes from my house, so the slow cooker has once again been my new favourite cooking appliance. It’s nice to come home to a warm cooked meal as soon as you step in the door and after a long day of work. I found the inspiration from a great Food & Fitness blog that focuses on a lot of healthy recipes. Let’s get to this recipe! Continue reading

The day has arrived. The day I venture into the uncharted waters of grilled cheese sandwiches. Bob is the leader of the grilled cheese nation, so it’s time I join forces with him with my first creation: The Breakfast Brie & Pear Grilled Cheese Sandwich.

But there is no better time then the present to jump right in, so let’s get to my first EVER grilled cheese on BS’ in the Kitchen! Continue reading

I’ve been Pinterest plagued again…. My Pinterest wall has become overloaded with delicious looking recipes for Roasted Chickpeas. Anyone who knows me, knows that I love pulses, so after seeing so many recipes I knew I had to give some a whirl. I settled on a mild spice, paprika and some garlic and shallot olive oil. And wow these were great – the perfect amount of crunch for a really delightful snack. Let’s get to this recipe…. Continue reading
I’m slightly addicted to Pinterest (no, that’s a lie. I’m addicted….) and I kept on seeing pins with cauliflower pizza crust, cauliflower bites, cauliflower imitating bread everywhere! After seeing so many of these pins I thought I’d put one to the test and landed on a recipe for Cauliflower Garlic Cheese “Bread” Sticks that looked pretty good so I gave it a whirl. Continue reading

Having buttermilk and chicken in my fridge, and after seeing an episode of Michael Smith’s Chef at Home where he marinates chicken in buttermilk, I quickly scanned my surroundings… Surely I wasn’t just watching the Food Network, but it was watching ME…
Well, turns out it wasn’t. But I took it as a sign, and did the next logical thing – marinated my chicken in buttermilk.
Of course, given that I had a few other ingredients I was looking to use up (namely dill), I perused the internets and found an appropriate recipe to guide me.
I know buttermilk is supposed to help make things tender and juicy, but given that I used drumsticks, which are already pretty tender and juicy, I can’t really say how much of a difference it made. But what I can say, is they were DILL-icious (I went there…), they were slightly tangy from the buttermilk and lemon, with a plenty of dill flavour, all complimented by the always wonderful garlic!

Sorry for being a bit absent on the blog lately and an even bigger thanks to Bob for carrying things along and posting some really delicious recipes. Last night I was pretty hungry and after avoiding groceries for the past three weeks, the only thing I really had in my fridge was celery… yup you heard me… boring ol’ celery. So I chopped a bunch up and just started creating and this is what I came up with. It was a great little soup that would best be served as a side soup or an appetizer to a great sandwich (perhaps one of Bob’s fabulous grilled cheeses). Let’s continue to the recipe. Continue reading
