Pan Roasted Pork Chop on Potato, Kale, & Broccoli with Pan Gravy

Lately I have been very busy with work, which is great, but being self-employed, it often means I keep very strange hours, without a lot of structure to my day. As a result, my diet gets pretty messed up. Instead of having a work day broken up into 2 breaks and a lunch, I might wake up at 10:00AM one day, work until 4:00 in the morning, then have to get up at 7:00am the next day for a photoshoot, and due to the typical quick turnaround, stay up very lately again editing everything. I always eat breakfast (thank goodness!), but without structured breaks in my day, I might go 8 hours before realizing I haven’t ate anything substantial, which is BAD!

This past week, I’ve been focusing on having more structured meal times, and actually taking the time to cook something, instead of making a sandwich, eggs, or *GASP* toast with peanut butter and jam (I eat this way more than I would like to admit…it has become an addiction since I’ve started making my own sourdough bread). Even though I have been cooking regularly this week, I hadn’t taken the time to do anything for the blog, so after re-stocking my fridge with groceries, I was motivated to whip something up!

Yum Yum Sweet Pickles

Yum Yum Pickles | bsinthekitchen.com #pickles #canning #bsinthekitchen

As many of you know I’m an avid bowhunter and now that September is here, hunting is in full swing. One of my favorite parts about hunting is being able to spend time with my “second” family, the Kuiack’s. After coming in for a visit, Heather (my other mom) sent me home with TONS of pickles from her garden and this fabulous recipe for sweet pickles that came from a neighbor of theirs.  These pickles still have a slight crunch, a perfect sweet and vinegar-tart taste and would be great served with crackers and cheese or on your favourite sandwich.. Let’s get to the recipe so you can enjoy these easy, deliciously sweet pickles. 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.

Barbecue season is upon us, warm weather is here, and summer is on its way! Thanks to a very busy several months being stuck in my basement, editing a TV show, I am now experiencing uncontrollable cravings for warm weather and vitamin D! Fortunately, the weekly deadlines are done, and my schedule is a little more flexible, so I can finally enjoy this wonderful weather!

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.

Zucchini Pepperoni Pizzas

Zucchini Pepperoni Pizzas | bsinthekitchen.com #healthy #pizza #zucchini

Zucchinis…you either love or hate them…or rather, you love them but then hate them because you have so many at the end of the gardening season that you can’t possibly fathom eating another one of those massive green squashes.

Yeah that sounds about right.

Breakfast Spaghetti Squash

Breakfast Spaghetti Squash | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #healthy #bsinthekitchen

Today I realized I hadn’t posted anything on this blog for the last month and a half…since starting this blog over three years ago, it’s been updated fairly regularly, and while there have been slow months, there has always been a few new recipes each month…until now…almost. Coming to that realization, I knew I needed to take some time today and at least post one thing, because I feel really bad about how neglected this blog has become.

For those who have been sticking around, I thank you! I definitely don’t want to neglect the blog, and have no plans to stop blogging, it’s just been a very busy several months. All though things are quite busy, it’s awesome and a blessing when starting your own business! Although I have been away from the blog, I’ve been doing plenty of food related work. I’ve continued shooting recipe videos  and blogging for tablespoon.com, creating and managing a visual marketing campaign for Ayden Kitchen & Bar (Top Chef Canada winner Dale MacKay’s new  restaurant), and more recently becoming the video editor for a hunting TV show! It’s been a busy few months, and I don’t see it slowing down, but i’m learning a ton, and getting better at managing several projects at once!

Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash

Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Stuffed Spaghetti Squash | bsinthekitchen.com #squash #healthy #bsinthekitchen

It’s that time of the year… Squash season!

Thanks to my mother planting copious amount of spaghetti squash this year, I have been racking my brain, trying to think of different ways to use that delicious vegetable! In the past, I have always kept it quite simple, roasting the spaghetti squash, then mixing in some diced tomato and onion, which makes a perfectly delicious meal. But this time I wanted to really take advantage of the squash and the fact that it makes a perfect little boat for other ingredients when cut in half.

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!

Margherita Pizza

Margherita Pizza | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #dinner #bsinthekitchen

For whatever reason, this week just felt like a pizza week, but truth-be-told, every week could be pizza week because that stuff is freakin’ amazing! Especially with this ridiculously easy pizza dough recipe. It literally takes about 5 minutes to make (maybe less).

For this pizza I decided to keep it simple and go with a classic margherita style pizza with tomato sauce, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella, topped off with a sprinkle of salt! So simple, so good!
