Pesto + VIDEO

Pesto + VIDEO | bsinthekitchen.com #pesto #basil #bsinthekitchen

In a never ending quest to expand my culinary horizons and due to a large amount of fresh basil in my fridge, I decided it was time to try making pesto for the first time!

It certainly won’t be my last!

This stuff was delicious! I ate a significant amount just “taste-testing” the pesto and I had to stop myself before it got out of hand and I ate it all! Along with trying my hand at pesto, I figured why not shoot a video for it too right!? I wanted to try a different editing style on this video, and decided to channel my inner James Brown and make a funky piece of music to go along with my vision. I gotta say I’m pretty happy with the results!

This recipe begins something like this:

“Nooooooo Megan!” I shout, as my girlfriend reaches into the Sobey’s refrigerator, pulling out a box of *gasp* frozen chicken strips!

“Put the box down, step away from the refrigerator!”

Italian Portobello “Pizza”

Italian Portobello "Pizza" | bsinthekitchen.com #pizza #lowcarb #bsinthekitchen

This is one of those “non-recipe” recipes, where I just toss a bunch of ingredients on something until i’m satisfied! Those are the best kind of recipes anyways, right?

Now you may have noticed this isn’t actually a pizza, more a faux-pizza, using delicious toppings you might find on a pizza but rather than pizza dough, I use a portobello mushroom! Low-carb and delicious, not that I particularly care about low-carb, but I DO care about delicious!

One Pot Spinach & Turkey Meatball Pasta

One Pot Spinach & Turkey Meatball Pasta | bsinthekitchen.com #pasta #dinner #bsinthekitchen

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I had become intrigued by the idea of “One Pot Pasta” after watching an episode of Bon Appetempt, so here it is! I tossed this recipe together with what I had on hand, hoped for the best and was rewarded with a delicious dinner! I’m not a fan of heavily sauced pasta dishes, especially now that we finally have some nice weather in Saskatoon, so this hit the spot perfectly! A light, fresh pasta dish that doesn’t leave you feeling like you just ate a brick!

Green Onion Parmesan Crepes with Ricotta, Spinach, Bacon & Mushroom Filling | bsinthekitchen.com #crepes #breakfast #bsinthekitchen

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and so is another BS’ in the Kitchen CTV Morning Live – Saskatoon appearance! This time, we have settled on the theme of “Breakfast in Bed” for our Mother’s Day special! After discussing it with Carlene, we decided crepes would be the way to go. They are easy to make, very versatile, and will impress that hard working mother in your life! Carlene is going to be cooking up some sweet red velvet crepes, and since not all mothers have a breakfast sweet tooth, I decided to make a savoury crepe recipe!

Deep Fried Spinach Ravioli with a Spicy Tomato Sauce

Deep Fried Spinach Ravioli | bsinthekitchen.com #ravioli #spinach #bsinthekitchen

A Kevin O’Leary inspired recipe, a strange thing you might think? Turns out he provided great inspiration for this tasty dish!

This is what we know about Kevin.

  • He can be a little full of himself from time to time…
  • He certainly “brings the heat” to hopeful entrepreneurs
  • He is all about the “green” (a.k.a $$$$)
  • His favourite restaurant in Toronto serves Italian food
  • He is a wine connoisseur

Well it’s obvious isn’t it?! We need to make an appetizer that’s full of itself, can handle the heat, is green, perhaps Italian, and maybe even has some wine in it! So it came to be, The Kevin O’Leary, a.k.a Deep Fried Ravioli Stuffed with Spinach & Ricotta, served with a Spicy Tomato Sauce!

Rigatoni with Spicy Ground Turkey Ragu

Rigatoni with Spicy Ground Turkey Ragu | bsinthekitchen.com #dinner #bonappetit #cookthecover #bsinthekitchen

A dedicated Bon Appetit subscriber (and recipe maker), it wasn’t until last month (when I saw foodie friend Dan’s Goodside’s pork chop) that I noticed they encourage you to “Cook the Cover” and then feature some of the recipes. Given how delicious their February cover looked, I had to give it a go! I adapted the recipe to fit to the ingredients I had on hand, swapping out the ground pork for ground turkey, as well as cutting most of the ingredients in half. I should also mention, that at 5:00PM, when I was just about finished cooking the ragu (or so I thought), I noticed it’s supposed to simmer for 4 hours…!!! Well I sure as heck wasn’t about to wait until 9:00PM to eat the delicious smelling ragu in front of me! So I simmered it until the pasta was done boiling and enjoyed my shortened version. Even though I didn’t cook it nearly as long as the recipes suggests, it had great flavour. If you’re in a rush, and don’t want to simmer it for 4 hours, don’t worry, it will still taste great!
