Continuing on with grilled peaches, I present the perfect summer dessert! Warm peaches, sweet honey, vanilla ice cream, candied walnuts, and fresh herbs, does it get any better!? I don’t know! But if it does, I can hardly imagine the glory! 

The fact that this dessert is not only super simple, but super delicious, makes it a big winner in my books! It’s summer. You want to relax, have some drinks, chat with friends. Not slave away over a dessert all day!

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.

Candied Nuts

Candied Nuts | bsinthekitchen.com #appetizer #snack #bsinthekitchen

Well I think by the fact alone that I had to ask my brother to get the new password really goes to show how long I’ve been away from the blog! Yeesh! I can’t even think about the last time I’ve done a post, but I’m back and hopefully will post one or two more over the holidays. But like this post, things have been nuts lately between work, photography, life and with pulling days that start at 4:30 am and don’t wrap til 11:30pm, food, cooking and the blog has gotten the serious shaft. But enough talking, let’s get to this recipe: Candied Nuts! This is a great and extremely veristle recipe. Eat the nuts as a snack, as a dessert or a topping to a salad. However you eat it, these perfectly matched sweet and savoury nuts will be sure to please your palette!  Continue reading

Now for the sweet (and beautiful) crepe! Along with making the Green Onion Parmesan Crepe for our CTV Morning Live Mother’s Day special, we decided these red velvet crepes would be another great option.

I had this for breakfast…don’t judge me.

Come on, it’s not that bad, plenty of dairy, fruit, some carbs, a little sugar to get that blood pressure up, add in a cup off  coffee and you’re ready for an epic day.

Anyways…

**Watch us make this grilled cheese on live television!**

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!

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffee Cake

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffee Cake | bsinthekitchen.com #dessert #coffee #bsinthekitchen

Nothing says Valentines Day like coffee cake right? Well for me, it’s a simple equation, COFFEE = LOVE, so when my girlfriend Megan (The Microwave Master) had to figure out what to get me for Valentines Day, she settled on baking me a coffee cake! Given that she has only baked for me once during our nearly three year relationship, it was sure to be an undertaking! Initially she was going to make it as a surprise, but since I was in charge of supper, and already at her house, we made it together, which was 100% better, because i’m always bugging her to cook with me! It was a wonderful gift, and while I didn’t have my camera on me at the time, I made sure to get some photos the next day so I could document this beautiful cake, and create Megan’s FIRST BLOG POST! YAAAA! Maybe she will become a food blogger too! (Pig’s can fly right?).

Anyways, here is the recipe, slightly modified from The Tasty Bite’s Buttermilk Coffee Cake.
