I 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
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!

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!
Going into the Julia Child 100 year celebration, I knew I wanted to be involved as a way to improve my cooking skills and repertoire. What I didn’t know, is that I would be improving my baking skills too! Naturally, the first week we receive a baking assignment, Carlene is out of town, leaving it in MY HANDS! Not one to back down from a challenge, I committed myself to this recipe and ended up with a successfully baked cake!

As many of you may know, Bob & I have been asked to blog in part to celebrate a cooking goddess’s birthday….Miss Julia Child! 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

I’ve been on a big pulse kick lately and trying to find unique and creative ways to add these super foods into my diet. Also, I feel very guilty for living in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan which produces 99% of Canada’s lentil and chickpea crops and 67% of Canada’s dry pea crop, yet I don’t really know how to re-hyrdrate them, cook or bake with them. So this is a continuation of my adventures! These little lentil bars taste freaking awesome and are packed full of goodness making them great for a grab-n-go breakfast, fuel/recovery snack for athletes or just a healthy, gluten-free snack. In true BS fashion, let’s get to the recipe… Continue reading
