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!

Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pasta #bsinthekitchen

I’ve been all about making food with fun names these days. Blueberry Cla-foo-tee, chicken catch-a-tory, they are fun to say and even more fun to eat! As part of our back-to-school special for CTV Morning Live, Carlene and I were tasked with making easy, budget friendly meals for students. Carlene settled on making the always tasty Vietnamese cold rolls; an easy to make, inexpensive, and light meal. Taking the alternate route, I went with a comfort classic that’s easy to make and easy on the budget!

Budget and Student Friendly Vietnamese Cold Rolls

Budget and Student Friendly Vietnamese Cold RollsI can’t believe it’s September already. Where did this summer go? I’m not sure if it was having the snow stay into early May or just being so busy, but this summer seemed to wiz right by. With September here in full force, so is school. Yup that’s right – back to the books, the late night studies, copious amounts of coffee and the ever growing wealth of knowledge. When CTV Morning Live contacted us about doing another segment, this time anchored around budget and student friendly meals, Bob and I agreed to the challenge (the video of the segment is posted below – tune in to see who received the “dunce” cap). Bob made some flavour packed chicken cacciatore and my rival dish was one of my favourite foods: Vietnamese cold rolls. Let’s get to my recipe (which by the way costs an average of $2.49 CAD for a serving of four cold rolls).

Pesto + VIDEO

Pesto + VIDEO | bsinthekitchen.com #pesto #basil #bsinthekitchen

In a never ending quest to expand my culinary horizons and due to a large amount of fresh basil in my fridge, I decided it was time to try making pesto for the first time!

It certainly won’t be my last!

This stuff was delicious! I ate a significant amount just “taste-testing” the pesto and I had to stop myself before it got out of hand and I ate it all! Along with trying my hand at pesto, I figured why not shoot a video for it too right!? I wanted to try a different editing style on this video, and decided to channel my inner James Brown and make a funky piece of music to go along with my vision. I gotta say I’m pretty happy with the results!

Margherita Pizza

Margherita Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #dinner #bsinthekitchen

For whatever reason, this week just felt like a pizza week, but truth-be-told, every week could be pizza week because that stuff is freakin’ amazing! Especially with this ridiculously easy pizza dough recipe. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make (maybe less).

For this pizza I decided to keep it simple and go with a classic margherita style pizza with tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, topped off with a sprinkle of salt! So simple, so good!

How to Grill Corn | bsinthekitchen.com #corn #barbecue #bsinthekitchen

Did you have braces?

Does the thought of corn terrify you?

If so, I apologize in advance, this post is not for you, but for the sake of others I must go on! In the latest installment of Tablespoon.com videos, I present to you “How to Grill Corn”, a quick recipe video detailing the process of grilling corn in their husks to some bumpin’ tunes (made by yours truly)!

I was blessed with straight teeth, and fortunately didn’t have to exile my pearly whites to years behind bars. As a result, my love for corn has remained strong and every summer when corn is in season, I fully embrace it!

Check out the video below and the full blog post here: http://quick-dish.tablespoon.com/2013/07/17/how-to-grill-corn/.

This recipe begins something like this:

“Nooooooo Megan!” I shout, as my girlfriend reaches into the Sobey’s refrigerator, pulling out a box of *gasp* frozen chicken strips!

“Put the box down, step away from the refrigerator!”
