Chimichurri Sauce

Chimichurri Sauce | bsinthekitchen.com #sauce #chimichurri #bsinthekitchen As evidenced by some of my recent posts, like herb-rubbed Beer Can Chicken, and Fried Egg on Sourdough, my cooking has been all about keeping it fresh! With an abundance of herbs and vegetables in my backyard, it’s been a great influence on my cooking. In the spirit of keeping things fresh, I wanted to try a recipe that I’ve always heard about, but never made before – Chimichurri! It’s a blend of fresh herbs, red wine vinegar, and olive oil, and it’s absolutely delicious! After doing a bit of research as to what actually goes into a traditional Chimichurri, I came up with the recipe below. Continue reading

Classic Coleslaw

Classic Coleslaw | bsinthekitchen.com #coleslaw #picnic #bsinthekitchen

The perfect sidekick to any picnic gathering, this coleslaw builds off of the previous post for Homemade Mayonnaise, using it as the base for the coleslaw dressing. I’m going to keep it classic with this coleslaw, using cabbage, carrot, and chives for some subtle onion flavour.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits  | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #biscuits #dinner

My favourite kind of recipes are those that are easy, yet impressive, and buttermilk biscuits definitely meet that criteria! They take about 30 minutes start to finish, they use common household baking ingredients, and the smell/taste of freshly baked biscuits is amazing! What better way than a video, to show you how easy they are!

I actually shot and edited the majority of this video over a year ago, but for whatever reason I never completely finished it. Fortunately I was making biscuits last night, so I decided it was time to wipe off the cyber-dust it was collecting, finish the video, and finally post the damn thing!

Winter Squash Salad

Winter Squash Salad | bsinthekitchen.com #salad #squash #bsinthekitchen

Typically in winter I crave warm, hearty comfort foods like many others, but for whatever reason, this time I was really craving a salad. Given how cold and snowy it was outside, I figured, why not make this a comforting “winter” salad! With “wintery” ingredients already on hand, like kale and acorn squash, I knew I could whip something tasty up, so away I went.

Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roasted Onions

Pork Chop with Chive Butter & Balsamic Roast Onions | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pork #bsinthekitchen

I must say September was a pretty pitiful month for blogging and I apologize for that! It’s not that I haven’t been cooking anything, I just haven’t been taking the time to edit the images, and write up a blog post. I’ve got a few recipes that are quite timely for this fall season, so you can expect a little more blogging this month!

Let’s start with this delicious meal featuring some wonderful ingredients from my mothers garden! The stars of the dish are delicious onions that have been drizzled with balsamic vinegar and roasted, as well as a hearty pork chop finished with chive butter. My house smelled so good after making this, it was a low level of torture, having to wait to eat this while smelling it and taking pictures.

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini Fritters | bsinthekitchen.com #zucchini #appetizer #bsinthekitchen

First off, let’s all welcome Carlene back from a blogging hiatus with her Cherry Scones, hopefully she’ll stick around for a while!

We took a bit of a break from CTV appearances the last month, but wanted to come back for a timely garden cooking segment. Trying to figure out what I was going to cook, I ventured into a garden full of tomatoes, carrots, peas, beans, beets, zucchinis and more! After picking several different vegetables, I decided Zucchini was the way to go. There is tons of it every year and it usually just ends up in the typical zucchini breads or cakes, so I figured I would try something new – Zucchini Fritters!

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!

Did you have braces?

Does the thought of corn terrify you?

If so, I apologize in advance, this post is not for you, but for the sake of others I must go on! In the latest installment of Tablespoon.com videos, I present to you “How to Grill Corn”, a quick recipe video detailing the process of grilling corn in their husks to some bumpin’ tunes (made by yours truly)!

Italian Portobello “Pizza”

Italian Portobello "Pizza" | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #lowcarb #bsinthekitchen

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right?

Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza dough, I use a portobello mushroom! Low-carb and delicious, not that I particularly care about low-carb, but I DO care about delicious!
