I can’t believe it’s September already. Where did this summer go? I’m not sure if it was having the snow stay into early May or just being so busy, but this summer seemed to wiz right by. With September here in full force, so is school. Yup that’s right – back to the books, the late night studies, copious amounts of coffee and the ever growing wealth of knowledge. When CTV Morning Live contacted us about doing another segment, this time anchored around budget and student friendly meals, Bob and I agreed to the challenge (the video of the segment is posted below – tune in to see who received the “dunce” cap).

Let’s get to my recipe (which by the way costs an average of $2.49 CAD for a serving of four cold rolls).

It’s hard to believe that another Valentine’s Day (or as I like to call it: Singles Awareness Day) has come and gone. This year, a good friend of mine, Chantal, has her fiance away at Police School so I invited her over so she wouldn’t have to be alone on the day of love and let’s face the facts – I love cooking for people! Even more when they do the dishes after! I wanted to make a meal that was healthy, yet filling, delicious and relatively quick to make. I settled on a Mustard Dill Salmon, Scalloped Potatoes, a Fresh Greens Salad and Pavlova for dessert. This recipe is also a bit different in terms of BS in the Kitchen Recipes, because this is almost a full dinner menu. Continue reading

I think we’ve chatted about this on the blog before, but sometimes us foodies (aka. nickname for food bloggers out there), just don’t have the time or creative energy to make a huge dynamic & showy meal, well that’s where these quick and easy ones come in. Below is a quick (maybe 5-10 mins to make) pasta that’s healthy, light and full of protein.
