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.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies | bsinthekitchen.com #redvelvet #dessert #bsinthekitchenBob and I are always excited when CTV contacts us about being on their Morning Live TV show. Themed cooking seems to be our TV calling and this time it was all in the spirit of luuuuurve for Valentine’s Day or Singles Awareness Day – however you choose to celebrate it. So what says love better than two perfect little red velvet whoopie pie cookies sandwiched together with the love of a cream cheese filling! You can even oomph up the love factor and cut them into adorable little hearts (*insert ‘awwww’ or ‘gag’ here*) Mmmmm…. either way, red velvet just sounds just delightful to me! Let’s get to the recipe so you can make these for your someone special. Continue reading

Churros – When Good Churros Go Bad

Churros - When Good Churros Go Bad | bsinthekitchen.com #dessert #churro #bsinthekitchen

This post is like a recipe and public service announcement all in one, read carefully, this could save you from disaster. Actually.

I should also mention, I didn’t make these with the intention of posting them on the blog, but after it was all said and done, I had to share the story, so I snapped some photos with my iPhone. (Thank god I didn’t have my actual camera on me! You’ll find out why, soon enough)

What began as an exciting foray into the cuisine of Spain, became a harrowing tale of disaster and determination, in what has become the scariest thing I have ever cooked.

Churros.

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

Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels

If anyone is looking for a fairly quick and impressive recipe, salted caramels may just be up your alley! I’ve made my original salted caramel recipe a few times now and just about have it down to a science, but this time I wanted to do something a bit different,so I decided to add some vanilla beans to it. Seriously though, who doesn’t love the warm aroma of vanilla beans and the gorgeous little brown specs of beans really add a level of sophistication to a dish. After making the original recipe and these Vanilla Bean Salted Caramels, I must admit that I LOVE the vanilla version. Let’s get to the recipe, so you can decide for yourself. 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.

Pumpkin Spice Cookies with a Salted Caramel Frosting

It’s hard to believe summer is over and a crisp, warm fall is upon us. With that said, as sad as I am to see the days getting shorter and the air cooling off, I’m happy because it’s given me a bit of incentive to get back into the kitchen. Because it’s fall, it’s time to start playing with all the traditional spices that come with fall – cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, nutmeg, rich vanilla…. the list could go on and on. When I stumbled upon this recipe last night, I knew I had to make them: Pumpkin Spice Cookies with a Salted Caramel Frosting. These little guys are awesome, almost like a hybrid between a soft and chewy gingerbread cookie and a pumpkin pie. Let’s get to the recipe so you can give them a try yourself. Continue reading

Fresh Homemade Cherry Pie

A while ago, Bob & I were contacted by Taste of Home to review their “Cooking School Cookbook” and immediately we said yes. Taste of Home is one of the premier cookbook companies so how could we say no?! One of the recipes that first caught my eye was the Cherry Pie recipe – I’ve never cooked a pie from scratch before and each summer we have pounds upon pounds of fresh tart cherries. With my schedule finally freeing up and having a free evening, I dove into the kitchen to make this pie. Let’s get to the recipe! Continue reading
