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!

Savoury Watermelon Salad

Savoury Watermelon Salad | bsinthekitchen.com #salad #fruit #bsinthekitchen

I have had visions of creating a salad in this style for quite some time and finally got around to actually doing it the other day! Along with fancying up the presentation of a watermelon salad, I wanted to try marinating watermelon and this was the perfect opportunity!

Initially I had plans to add some baby arugula into the dish, unfortunately when I went to the grocery store they were all out, so I just had to make do without it!

This salad really transforms the watermelon into a savoury dish that felt surprisingly hearty! Marinating the watermelon adds subtle hints of lemon, honey and balsamic to the freshness of the watermelon, and pairing it with the feta, mint, bacon and red onion makes it much more savoury. Topping it all of with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar gives it a bit of needed acidity and a nice tang!

Smoked Salmon Potato Salad

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!

The GBC (Gin, Basil, Cumber) + VIDEO RECIPE

The GBC (Gin, Basil & Cucumber) | bsinthekitchen.com #cocktail #drink #bsinthekitchen

Inspired by a similar drink at a local Saskatoon restaurant/lounge called The Rook & Raven, I decided to try and make my own version! Cucumber and basil in a cocktail may seem like a  strange combo to some, but I assure you it is delicious and very refreshing! Especially with gin! I even decided to do a short recipe video for it, I hope you guys enjoy it!

Porchetta Sandwich

Porchetta Sandwich | bsinthekitchen.com #porchetta #sandwich #bsinthekitchen

In my last post, I made Porchetta inspired by the Meat & Bread’s Porchetta sandwich in Vancouver, so obviously I had to do a sandwich post too! It’s really the Porchetta that’s the star here, because there is not much else going on in this sandwich, just delicious roasted pork, crackling, and salsa verde. You’ve got crackling, what more do you need!?

If you plan on making this delicious sandwich, refer to my last post to make the Porchetta and salsa verde (which you should definitely make because it’s AMAZING). Continue reading

Porchetta Pork Shoulder

Porchetta Pork Shoulder | bsinthekitchen.com #porchetta #pork #bsinthekitchen

Ever since eating at Meat & Bread while living in Vancouver (in 2011), I have wanted to try making my own porchetta. It’s been a long time coming, but I have finally made it!! While picking up groceries at my local Sobey’s I noticed they started stocking pork shoulder in the meat section, seizing the moment I picked one up! Already excited by my newly acquired pork shoulder, the fact that it only cost $3.58 (for a 3.5lb roast) had me over the moon! An awesome recipe, big enough to serve a small group, that cost next to nothing…I will be talking this one up for a while!

Buttermilk Dill Chicken

Buttermilk Dill Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #chicken #bsinthekitchen

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!

Pork Chop & Acorn Squash with Squash Seed Vinaigrette

Pork Chop & Acorn Squash with Squash Seed Vinaigrette | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pork #bsinthekitchen

Once again Bon Appetit is appealing to my taste buds with this recipe. Pork chops are a regular staple in my diet, I love acorn squash, AND simple recipes! Although I’ve never been a huge fan of cilantro, it was perfect in this recipe, really complimenting the flavour of the squash seeds, I actually found myself eating the extra seeds mixed with fresh chopped cilantro! As always, I made a few modifications to the recipe, cutting it down to a single serving, and using the acorn squash seeds instead of pumpkin seeds. It also said to shell the seeds, which I definitely was not going to take the time to do! Instead I left them whole and roughly chopped them as stated in the recipe, and it tasted great!
