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!

Mmmm mmmm mmM! What a grilled cheese! Gooey cheese, crunchy potatoes, all my favourite parts of scalloped potatoes, in my favourite kind of sandwich! I gotta say potatoes certainly do go well in grilled cheese sandwiches (see Baked Potato Grilled Cheese). Now for me, the best part of scalloped potatoes is the crunchy potatoes you get on the side and the top, so that’s what I was looking to emphasize (and boy did I ever!). If you love the creaminess of scalloped potatoes, all you have to do is either, cook the potatoes less, so they’re not as crunchy, or boil down a quick creamy sauce with milk, butter, and flour to go in the grilled cheese. I almost want to make another right now just to try a saucier version!

Hooooly maaaan. I’m not sure how much gluttonous punishment my body can take at this point. All I’ve gotta say is thank God for 25 year old male metabolism! As a Canadian, I feel, as a commitment to my country, a poutine grilled cheese had to join the ranks of National Grilled Cheese Month. Grilled bread, gravy, cheese curds, fries… I sent farewells and love to my family as I embarked upon this grilled cheese, unsure if I would make it through, certain an untimely demise was imminent. But alas, I am here, writing about it, with a renewed lust for life! This was one mean grilled cheese! Crunchy bread, with layers of rich gravy, salty, suuuper stringy melted cheese curds, surrounding crispy french fries! I suppose I can find solace in the fact that I used “healthier” fries, making this Baked French Fries to use in the grilled cheese!

In a continuation of my previous post for Baked French Fries I present to you the always delicious Poutine! This is super easy to make, and I know some of you will shame me for not using REAL gravy, but I gotta say, that salty, delicious instant gravy tastes wonderful on these fries. Guilty pleasure? Maybe.
Anyways, you can’t beat the speed of this one. Baked french fries to Poutine in like 5 minutes! Sounds good to me!
This is more of a guideline than a recipe, because well, who am I to tell you how much gravy and cheese curds you should be putting on your fries!
Bake some fries first, and proceed to recipe!

Anyone who buys those bags of frozen french fries is just cheating themselves. Especially if you have potatoes in your cupboard. These things are so simple, so delicious, and just look at how beautiful they are! Your frozen potato sticks don’t come close! Grab a russet potato, slice it up, bake it and feel the guilt wash away as you eat these non-deep fried homemade beauties (and then feel guilty as you realize you just ate a ton…oops!). Stay tuned for a much less guilt-free recipe coming in the next day or two using these tasty things! (can you guess what it might be??)

Although this isn’t necessarily a traditional Eggs Florentine (as it doesn’t have any sauce to go with it), it does stay true to “Florentine” which is used to describe a dish with spinach. Regardless of semantics, this was one tasty combo! I mean, I was expecting it to be good; crunchy hashbrown topped with sauteed spinach, feta cheese and topped with a fried egg, running it’s yolk all over the place. You’ve got a win right there. But this was just awesome! All the flavours came together so well. The textures complemented each other, the saltiness of the feta went great with the spinach. I will definitely be making this again!

If you’ve been following BS’ in the Kitchen, you would have noticed our recent post of Buffalo Chicken Potato Skins that we brought to a party. Well we have great news for you if you thought they looked delicious – we now bring you their partner in crime: Buffalo Chicken Dip! Great served at a party with some plain chips and best of all, it’s quick and easy to make. We should also mention that you can also create this dish if you have left over stuffing for the potatoes – so really it’s two recipes in one! Let’s get to the recipe so you can try it out yourself.

I have been wanting to try making stuffed skin chicken breasts for several months now, and had purchased the chicken, put it in the freezer, but never gotten around to making it until now. Since I had just gotten back from Jamaica, my fridge was a void of empty space, and so began the raid of my freezer. After pulling out the chicken, I scavenged through my fridge and pantry, and was able to pull together some pretty wonderful ingredients, coming up with this tasty recipe! Not bad if I do say so myself!

We are now on week five of trying various recipes of Julia Child’s – hard to believe time is zipping by this quickly. When we received this soup recipe I was quite excited because potatoes are one of my favourite veggies and leeks are pretty sweet too with their fun, light onion taste. With this soup being served cold, it’s a great summer meal; but take note that it’s great served warm as well. But let’s get to the recipe, because it does take a bit of time… Continue reading
Time is flying by with the Julia Child 100 year celebration and it’s already onto week 4! This time with the fancy and filling Salad Nicoise [nee-SWAHZ]. With each assignment Carlene and I receive, we try to stay true to the recipe, but add a little extra flare if possible! This week is no exception. Instead of piling a bunch of ingredients into a bowl, we wanted to use some great fresh tuna and a different plating style to class things up a bit!
