It seems as though I’m having a bit of a moment with pumpkin these days…Fortunately, this post moves away from “pumpkin spice” and features a different spice.

Curry!

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!

Garden BLT

Garden BLT | bsinthekitchen.com #BLT #Bacon #bsinthekitchen

I hate the word synergy, or at least the whole 1+1=3 concept, but I’ve gotta say, all the components in this dish really amounted to more than just a sum of its parts! ¬†This dish is all about taking the time to really focus on each ingredient, so the combination creates something extremely delicious! Fresh tomato coulis, homemade mayonnaise, sourdough bread made from scratch, and an arrangement of delicious greens grown in my own yard! I knew this was going to be tasty, but it turned out even better than I was hoping.

Head over to the Tomato Coulis, and Homemade Mayo recipes before you get into this one! Although I haven’t had time to post up any sourdough recipes, if you don’t have a go to bread recipe, I would suggest getting something fresh from a local bakery. You can expect a whole run-down on creating a sourdough starter, maintaining it, and making bread with it in the future!

Fried Egg on Sourdough, Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, & Herbs

Fried Egg on Sourdough, Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, & Herbs | bsinthekitchen.com #friedegg #sourdough #bsinthekitchen

After years (and years, and years…) of reaping the benefits of my mother’s gardening efforts, I finally started a garden in my own backyard this year. Needless to say, I have learned how much work goes into building a garden, and while it has been hard work, it has also been extremely rewarding!¬† Naturally, having a garden has influenced on my cooking, with all the fresh herbs and vegetables just a few steps out my back door! Along with gardening, I have started making sourdough bread quite frequently (at least once a week), which has resulted in a lot of bread sneaking into my meals as well!

That is where this delicious creation comes along. The other week after weeding the garden, I realized I hadn’t eaten for quite some time, so as per usual, I made a quick fried egg sandwich. Of course, with all the fresh bread, herbs, and vegetables, I had to incorporate some into my sandwich! The results were quite delicious, and it got me thinking about making it again, but classing it up a bit.

Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #friedchicken #chicken #bsinthekitchen

I recently went from having never made fried chicken, to making it four times in about a week and a half, thanks to one of my recent adventures – auditioning for Masterchef Canada! Yup, I’m gonna try and get on a TV show! I will go over more details in my next post, when I post the actual recipe I made for the audition, which you may have guessed, includes all of the recent recipes I have posted – biscuits, mayo, coleslaw, and now fried chicken!

This fried chicken is amazing! The recipe is adapted from the fried chicken dish at Ayden Kitchen & Bar, so you know it’s gotta be good! It has tons of flavour, and makes a super tender chicken, with delicious crispy skin.
