Chicken Pot Pie Grilled Cheese

Well folks, my intentions were good, I really wanted to focus on posting more regularly, and then I failed!! I have been doing a fair amount of cooking and taking pictures for the blog, but I just haven’t taken the time to actually blog the recipes! This all changes right now, because it’s that time of the year again! NATIONAL GRILLED CHEESE MONTH! Perhaps you remember the epic celebration we had on the blog last year, doing a new grilled cheese recipe every day. If not, last years video will certainly jog your memory!

I hate to break it to you guys, but this year I’m not going to be doing quite an epic celebration of grilled cheese. Fortunately, I have a few recipes that I have been saving for this month, so I’m excited to share them with you all finally! Let’s start it off!

Chicken & Dumplings

Chicken & Dumplings | bsinthekitchen.com #chicken #dinner #bsinthekitchen

Lately I’ve been thinking, rather than trying to cook things off the top of my head, throwing this and that together, I should pick a few recipes to try cooking each week from magazines, blogs, and cookbooks.  I’m hoping it not only gets me cooking with different ingredients, but just gets me cooking more in general! I have been eating too many sandwiches for supper lately…

Chicken Cacciatore

Chicken Cacciatore | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #pasta #bsinthekitchen

I’ve been all about making food with fun names these days. Blueberry Cla-foo-tee, chicken catch-a-tory, they are fun to say and even more fun to eat! As part of our back-to-school special for CTV Morning Live, Carlene and I were tasked with making easy, budget friendly meals for students. Carlene settled on making the always tasty Vietnamese cold rolls; an easy to make, inexpensive, and light meal. Taking the alternate route, I went with a comfort classic that’s easy to make and easy on the budget!

Budget and Student Friendly Vietnamese Cold Rolls

Budget and Student Friendly Vietnamese Cold RollsI can’t believe it’s September already. Where did this summer go? I’m not sure if it was having the snow stay into early May or just being so busy, but this summer seemed to wiz right by. With September here in full force, so is school. Yup that’s right – back to the books, the late night studies, copious amounts of coffee and the ever growing wealth of knowledge. When CTV Morning Live contacted us about doing another segment, this time anchored around budget and student friendly meals, Bob and I agreed to the challenge (the video of the segment is posted below – tune in to see who received the “dunce” cap). Bob made some flavour packed chicken cacciatore and my rival dish was one of my favourite foods: Vietnamese cold rolls. Let’s get to my recipe (which by the way costs an average of $2.49 CAD for a serving of four cold rolls).

Citrus Marinated Chicken

Citrus Marinated Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #chicken #dinner #bsinthekitchen

Browsing through my favourite magazine (Bon Appetit of course!) I came across this simple and delicious looking recipe for Citrus Marinated Chicken. Taking some chicken out of the fridge, I went about assembling the marinade when it took a bit of a left turn! Cutting into what I thought was an orange, but was actually a small, very orange-esque grapefruit, I had to make a little change of plans! Undeterred, I went with it, using grapefruit as my main citrus and making a few changes here and there to the recipe.

In the end, it all worked out and  I had myself some tasty chicken. It had some great teriyaki flavour with hints of citrus and a really nice caramelization from the sugars in the marinade. Served with some rice and fresh veggies, it made an easy and delicious meal!

Parmesan Panko Chicken Strips

This recipe begins something like this:

“Nooooooo Megan!” I shout, as my girlfriend reaches into the Sobey’s refrigerator, pulling out a box of *gasp* frozen chicken strips!

“Put the box down, step away from the refrigerator!”

June has been a pretty great month in the Life of Bob! I finally got to share two recipe videos I produced for General Mills’ website Tablespoon.com, with one more being published in a couple days, and two more currently in the works! It’s been great so far, and i’m looking forward to doing more projects with them! I’ve also been finishing a couple recipe videos of my own that I shot several months ago (buttermilk biscuits, and ricotta gnocchi)! Carlene & I also had another wonderful CTV segment, which was a lot of fun, shooting live on location at our parents acreage! Video galore!

Along with all of that, I went on an amazing trip with my girlfriend’s family to Toronto and New York, both of which I had never visited before! It was a quick 9 day trip (with travel for three of those days), but we saw a lot, ate even more, and I snapped a ton of photos (check out my Instagram to see some of them)!

How to Roll a Spring Roll (VIDEO)

How to Roll a Spring Roll (Video) | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #vietnamese #bsinthekitchen

I have some exciting news to announce! After making a promotional video for National Grilled Cheese Month (watch it if you haven’t!), I was contacted by Tablespoon.com (a website under the General Mills brand). They wanted to know if I had made the video (I did!), as they were interested in a video partnership to produce similar content for their website! After emailing back and forth, we decided a great topic for the first video/blog post would be “How to Roll a Spring Roll”.

Buttermilk Dill Chicken

Buttermilk Dill Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #chicken #bsinthekitchen

Having buttermilk and chicken in my fridge, and after seeing an episode of Michael Smith’s Chef at Home where he marinates chicken in buttermilk, I quickly scanned my surroundings… Surely I wasn’t just watching the Food Network, but it was watching ME…

Well, turns out it wasn’t. But I took it as a sign, and did the next logical thing – marinated my chicken in buttermilk.

Of course, given that I had a few other ingredients I was looking to use up (namely dill), I perused the internets and found an appropriate recipe to guide me.

I know buttermilk is supposed to help make things tender and juicy, but given that I used drumsticks, which are already pretty tender and juicy, I can’t really say how much of a difference it made. But what I can say, is they were DILL-icious (I went there…), they were slightly tangy from the buttermilk and lemon, with a plenty of dill flavour, all complimented by the always wonderful garlic!

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato Skins

 I feel pretty lucky that I have some really great friends. The majority of us met in high school,  some of us have even been friends since elementary school, and have been through thick and thin together. I’d say it’s pretty special to have friendships that have lasted so many years! With some of us being married, having busy careers and even a few of us having kids, we don’t get to see each other as much as we used to, but when we do, crying from laughing so much is a guarantee! We’re also all foodie junkies and love to get together for potlucks and drinks. Knowing that there are some spice addicts in our crew and the boys will pretty much eat anything, I knew these Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Potato Skins would please the crowd! Continue reading
