I’m slightly addicted to Pinterest (no, that’s a lie. I’m addicted….) and I kept on seeing pins with cauliflower pizza crust, cauliflower bites, cauliflower imitating bread everywhere! After seeing so many of these pins I thought I’d put one to the test and landed on a recipe for Cauliflower Garlic Cheese “Bread” Sticks that looked pretty good so I gave it a whirl. Continue reading

Although this isn’t necessarily a traditional Eggs Florentine (as it doesn’t have any sauce to go with it), it does stay true to “Florentine” which is used to describe a dish with spinach. Regardless of semantics, this was one tasty combo! I mean, I was expecting it to be good; crunchy hashbrown topped with sauteed spinach, feta cheese and topped with a fried egg, running it’s yolk all over the place. You’ve got a win right there. But this was just awesome! All the flavours came together so well. The textures complemented each other, the saltiness of the feta went great with the spinach. I will definitely be making this again!

Now that Bob and I have both moved out of our parents acreage, we often go back home for a Sunday visit to comfort our poor empty nester parents (you miss us Mom & Dad? Right??), and in true BS’ in the Kitchen fashion, we cook the meal! This past Sunday, we offered a menu of Slow Cooker Pulled Pork with a Purple Cabbage & Apple Slaw, along with an old fashioned Carrot Cake for dessert. As an appetizer, we took to Pinterest and made this Cheesy Artichoke Bread after being highly recommended by a friend. Let’s all stop drooling and get to the recipe!
Even though I love salad, for whatever reason, I never make it for myself. With that realization, I decided it was time to experiment. After tossing some ideas around (bad pun?), this is what I came up with!

With the holidays around the corner, appetizers are a much needed item at any get together, so why not spend a little extra time and make some delicious homemade ones? Better yet, get some friends together, make a large batch, have some drinks and have yourself an appie making party! As part of our holiday inspired cooking segment on CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon, tomorrow morning (December 18th – 8:30AM), I tossed around a few different ideas, but ultimately decided on creating these Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon appetizers, and boy am I glad I did! They are DEELISH!

Consider this the prelude to my next recipe (Roasted Garlic, Spinach & Bacon Rangoon). This is actually the first time roasting garlic in the oven (typically I just saute a bit in a pan!), but it will definitely not be my last! It’s super easy, and not only does it give you some great tasting garlic, but you can also make garlic infused oil in the process!
I must admit, I was expecting this weeks recipe to be the popular boeuf bourguignon, but maybe that will be next week for the big finale! Of course, receiving a recipe with scallops was no disappointment as I LOVE seafood and scallops are no exception! As usual the recipe did not disappoint, making for a rich and delicious appetizer that left me craving more (as good appetizer’s should!).

Get your attention? This week we have a wonderful BBQ prize package to give away to one lucky follower (but you must live in Canada – sorry to all our US readers)! We were approached by the Turkey Farmers of Canada last month to see if we would be interested in joining the GREAT GRILLING TURKEY TRIAL from July 9th-15th. Sounds exciting right? Well we were asked to cook something from their recipe page or create our own and in turn they would send us a lovely prize package to give away to you guys, our faithful readers! Since we are fans of turkey, giving things away AND trying new recipes, of course we said YES.

Let’s start off by saying WOOOOOOWWW. This latest grilled cheese creation is absolutely amazing and dare I say the best one yet?? First off, I grilled it on the barbecue, so that alone is a game changer, and second, it contains amazing ingredients from my previous grilled cheeses like potatoes, chives and caramelized onions, but adds juicy steak and provolone cheese into the mix! Seriously, this is like a steak sandwich on steroids! The idea came about while at work, as I was discussing my next grilled cheese prospect with my co-worker and friend of many years, Brett T. I had decided my next creation was going to be a barbecued grilled cheese, when Brett threw it out there…STEAK & POTATO GRILLED CHEESE.
The room was silent.
Not really…But I knew this was going down as soon as possible. The wheels started turning as I began envisioning how this behemoth of a grilled/BBQ’d cheese sandwich was going to come together, here is what I came up with.

After picking up an avocado at the grocery store, in hopes that I would do something cool with it, I had planned on making a toasted tomato sandwich with avocado on it. While that would have been a simple and tasty dish, it wasn’t very creative. Fortunately, inspiration struck courtesy of the ingredients in my fridge (red onion mainly!) and the Deconstructed Guacamole Sandwich was created! These tasted great and were super easy to make, perfect for a quick snack or a twist on the traditional guacamole appetizer at at party!
