Avocado Chocolate Pudding

Avocado Chocolate Pudding I feel really accomplished putting this post up – the blog’s been a bit neglected, but I’m down for the count with pneumonia, so curling up on the couch has allowed me a bit more computer time than normal. So with that, I present to you: Avocado pudding. Yup… Avocado pudding. Now, you’re likely thinking “What? Ew, that’s gross”, but trust me it’s great and you’d never guess that avocados are the main ingredients. This recipe even got the full Dad seal of approval (and from the guy who normally hates ‘hippy’ food). While I like that this recipe is healthy for you, I really enjoy that it’s super fast and easy to make! So let’s get to this dessert recipe.

Cannoli with a Ricotta Cheese Filling

Homemade Cannolis with Ricotta Cheese Filling from bsinthekitchen.com | #dessert #cannoli # bsinthekitchenI have some exciting news to share with everyone – I’ve recently accepted a new job in the world of potash and phosphate.  While I am very excited to start my new role, I’m sad to say fair well to colleagues and friends at my current job in transportation. A good friend at work has been requesting cannolis for a while, so I knew I had to make them for her on my last day (even though I know we will stay friends, we just won’t be seeing each other every day). These were a bit scary for me to make as I’ve never eaten a cannoli in my life, so I had nothing to compare it to and it involved using oil to fry the cannoli pastries (reference: Bob’s disaster with frying pastry), but hey, sometimes you just have to jump off the cliff and hope you fly. This time it worked out in my favour and they actually were way easier to make than I thought. Let’s get to the recipe. Continue reading

Blood Orange Greek Yogurt with Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar

Blood Orange Greek Yogurt with Chocolate Balsamic Vinegar | bsinthekitchen.com #breakfast #dessert #bsinthekitchen

As with most people, what I eat is often dictated by what I have left in my fridge. In this case it was Greek yogurt and blood oranges. Peeling the orange, and tossing them into a bowl, I sweetened it with some honey and added a drizzle of chocolate balsamic vinegar for some pizzazz, and had myself a wonderful breakfast!

Fudgee-O Cupcakes

It seems like birthday baking is a popular theme here lately on BS’ in the Kitchen, not too long ago we made the Pink Ombre Rose Cake and now we bring you some rich, fudgey, chocolately cupcakes inspired by Fudgee-O cookies! The good man who received these cupcakes loves chocolate chip cookies, among a few other things, but when I found out that he also loves Fudgee-O cookies, I knew a Fudgee-O Cookie Cupcake would have to make an appearance for his birthday! And to my surprise, it looks like there aren’t too many Fudgee-O cupcake recipes out there in the food blogger world, so I really hope you all enjoy this recipe, so let’s get to it! Continue reading

Dark Chocolate & Cranberry Stuffed French Toast

It has been quite the weekend for food blogging! In an effort to prepare for BS’ in the Kitchen’s first TV appearance (CTV Morning Live Saskatoon – we’re on air shortly after 8:30AM Friday, November 23rd so tune in if you’re local!), Carlene and I have been brainstorming a number of holiday inspired recipes, this being one of them! We picked up plenty of groceries including turkey, egg nog, and cranberry sauce, so you can except a few more recipes in the coming week! This was probably the least holiday inspired recipes (just the cranberry), but it was EXCELLENT! A great blend of tart and sour cranberry sauce, bitter dark chocolate, mild cream cheese smushed between french toast! I hope you’re drooling.

Ladies and gentleman…I have a very important update in the culinary world of Bob.

I present REINE DE SABA i.e. my very FIRST time baking for the blog!

Not one to back down from a challenge, I committed myself to this recipe and ended up with a successfully baked cake!

S’more Stuffed French Toast

As I was relaxing on my couch after a particularly long day at work, I had s’mores and sandwiches on my mind. Of course, having sandwiches on my mind pretty much goes without saying! But these thoughts of s’mores are much more rare and came about due to a workplace discussion regarding tabletop s’mores at a local gastropub. So initially I was thinking s’more sandwich…WHa??? Too strange. But then, the obvious came to mind.

S’more Stuffed French Toast.

Duh! Why was that not my first thought? I don’t know. All that matters is it was thought! So a few days later, here I am presenting the S’more Stuffed French Toast! I’ve also tried something BRAND NEW that I’ve been wanting to do for quite some time…I made a VIDEO recipe! So check it out and let me know what you think, should we do more or just stick to blogging?

Now it’s my turn for this round and luckily the draw came out with a dessert – Mousseline Au Chocolat (aka. Chocolate Mousse) – to be exact! I have to admit that I was pretty scared to try this recipe because I thought it would be extremely challenging, but boy was I wrong, it was super easy & SUPER delicious! I also switched up JC’s classic mousse a bit….but let’s get to this recipe so you can see what I changed

Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

Why is it that everyone always seems to be hunting for that perfect ooey, gooey, chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe? Maybe because the Chocolate Chip is a cookie classic, maybe because it encases a bit of sweet with a touch of salty, either way, we can all almost guarantee that Chocolate Chip Cookies are not going away. I hunted down this recipe and decided to give it a shot. Thanks to Canadian Chef & total hottie, Michael Smith, for this recipe. Continue reading
