The essence of camping is all about forgetting those modern day conveniences, “roughing it”, and getting back to the basics! Of course, this doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a delicious dessert! Through the miracle that is aluminum foil, we open up a whole world of delicious campfire delicacies, one of those being Apple Crisp!
Watch us enjoy this on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon!

Now for the sweet (and beautiful) crepe! Along with making the Green Onion Parmesan Crepe for our CTV Morning Live Mother’s Day special, we decided these red velvet crepes would be another great option. Not only are they delicious, but the vibrant colour looks quite impressive if I do say so myself!

Ripe juicy plum, touches of sweet honey, the always satisfying salty/smokey/meaty bacon, brie melting all over it, and a touch of pungent blue cheese to pull it all together! This was probably one of the most interesting flavour profiles out of all the grilled cheeses I have done, and I loved it!

Strawberry, balsamic, basil & brie grilled cheese…Now that’s a mouthful! Literally!
Okay, i’ll be honest…I enjoyed this grilled cheese waaay more than I thought I would! I knew it would be good, but since i’m not usually the sweet, savoury type, I didn’t think it would be my favourite, but man was it good! Strawberry and reduced balsamic vinegar is already a great duo, now add brie and basil, and you have yourself one amazing grilled cheese! Sweet strawberries and reduced balsamic, savoury creamy brie cheese, with a fresh peppery bite of basil. Mmmmmmmmm.
Go eat this now!

I had this for breakfast…don’t judge me.
Come on, it’s not that bad, plenty of dairy, fruit, some carbs, a little sugar to get that blood pressure up, add in a cup off coffee and you’re ready for an epic day.

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. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous. Bob’s the master of grilled cheese with creative recipes, beautiful photos and his grilled cheese sandwiches taste as amazing as they look. 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

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!

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.

Here is a quick and easy drink recipe slightly adapted from Bon Appetit. Opting for a sweeter drink, I swapped out the salt rimmed glass with a sugar rimmed glass, but please feel free to choose salt or sugar!

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
