Let’s start this post with a little disclaimer. Yes, Bodum sent this stuff for free, no I’m not gonna suck up to them, if this product actually sucked, I would let you know! Besides we will be GIVING AWAY a FREE Immersion blender and set of mixing bowls to one lucky reader, and we wouldn’t want to give you something that we didn’t like, even if it is free! So let’s get started on this BS’ in the Kitchen “No BS” review!

Review – Dearie: The Remarkable Life of Julia Child
From interminably hungry young girl and “terror at the stove” to a “master” in the art of French cooking (but still interminably hungry!), “Dearie” chronicles the aptly titled “Remarkable Life of Julia Child” from high spirited child, to aimless social butterfly, and into the icon she has become. Bob Spitz provides an exhaustive look into the life of Julia Child, detailing her personal struggles and successes with family, work, love and ultimately finding her purpose. Continue reading

A while ago, Bob & I were contacted by Taste of Home to review their “Cooking School Cookbook” and immediately we said yes. Taste of Home is one of the premier cookbook companies so how could we say no?! One of the recipes that first caught my eye was the Cherry Pie recipe – I’ve never cooked a pie from scratch before and each summer we have pounds upon pounds of fresh tart cherries. With my schedule finally freeing up and having a free evening, I dove into the kitchen to make this pie. Let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading

We were recently contacted by Cookin’ Greens to create a unique and tasty using some of their fresh frozen vegetable mixes. Bob & I decided that creating a veggie packed BBQ pizza would be the best option! Now here is something cool about Cookin’ Greens which I really appreciate: all their frozen veggies (chopped kale, chopped spinach, chopped rapini, Designer Mix and the Athlete’s Mix) are frozen within six hours after being freshly farm picked, then are double washed, double blanched, chopped and flash frozen to seal in the maximum amount of nutrition and flavour. Because of Cookin’ Greens intense process, you can find these frozen veggies in the organic isle. But I’m hungry, so let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading

When I was invited to Jerry’s Food Emporium to try out their new Artisan Burgers, I was thrilled. First off, free food is high on my list of favourite things and secondly, after looking through the press release and watching the video on Jerry’s Artisan Burgers, I was drooling over the flavour pairings they are doing with these burgers. Trying to decide which burger to go with was definitely a challenge, but I ended up ordering the “Big Smoke” which was the staff favourite, as well as the Greek lamb burger which was Elyse, the co-owner’s favourite.
