Beer Can Chicken

Beer Can Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #chicken #barbecue #bsinthekitchen

Carlene and I have finally made our re-appearance together on CTV, whipping up barbecue recipes for August long! Steph from CTV made a special request for Beer Can Chicken, and left us up to decide what else we wanted to do, so Carlene settled on Ice Cream Tacos! It’s actually a bit absurd that this is the first time doing Beer Can Chicken on the blog, as it’s something our family has been doing for years and years, even before the whole Beer Can Chicken craze took place!

I know, I know, this isn’t technically “Beer Can” chicken, since I used Snapple, but the concept is the same! In fact, beer really isn’t necessary to make “Beer Can Chicken”, using other soda’s, or water infused with herbs, or tea, can add a nice subtle flavour to your chicken, so feel free to experiment!

Fried Egg on Sourdough, Swiss Chard, Goat Cheese, & Herbs

After years (and years, and years…) of reaping the benefits of my mother’s gardening efforts, I finally started a garden in my own backyard this year. Needless to say, I have learned how much work goes into building a garden, and while it has been hard work, it has also been extremely rewarding!  Naturally, having a garden has influenced on my cooking, with all the fresh herbs and vegetables just a few steps out my back door! Along with gardening, I have started making sourdough bread quite frequently (at least once a week), which has resulted in a lot of bread sneaking into my meals as well!

That is where this delicious creation comes along. The other week after weeding the garden, I realized I hadn’t eaten for quite some time, so as per usual, I made a quick fried egg sandwich. Of course, with all the fresh bread, herbs, and vegetables, I had to incorporate some into my sandwich! The results were quite delicious, and it got me thinking about making it again, but classing it up a bit.

Leftover Fried Chicken & Biscuits over Coleslaw

Leftover Fried Chicken & Biscuits Over Coleslaw | bsinthekitchen.com #friedchicken #biscuits #coleslaw

Well folks, I auditioned for Masterchef Canada! It came as a bit of a surprise when I woke up to a call from a casting agency, telling me they were impressed with my audition video, and wanted me to come to Calgary to audition for the show! I had actually applied last year, and didn’t hear anything back at that point, so it was quite unexpected when I received a call from the show. Of course, not wanting to pass up a good opportunity, I made plans to road trip it to Calgary for the audition! Now all I had to do, was figure out something delicious to prepare for my audition…

Fried Chicken

Fried Chicken | bsinthekitchen.com #friedchicken #chicken #bsinthekitchen

I recently went from having never made fried chicken, to making it four times in about a week and a half, thanks to one of my recent adventures – auditioning for Masterchef Canada! Yup, I’m gonna try and get on a TV show! I will go over more details in my next post, when I post the actual recipe I made for the audition, which you may have guessed, includes all of the recent recipes I have posted – biscuits, mayo, coleslaw, and now fried chicken!

This fried chicken is amazing! The recipe is adapted from the fried chicken dish at Ayden Kitchen & Bar, so you know it’s gotta be good! It has tons of flavour, and makes a super tender chicken, with delicious crispy skin.

Homemade Mayonnaise

Homemade Mayonnaise | bsinthekitchen.com #mayo #homemade #bsinthekitchen

The making of homemade mayonnaise is a truly wonderful thing to behold. Whisk oil into egg yolk, and VOILA, you have a magical sauce that makes so many things delicious! After you make this recipe, you will have very little desire to use store bought mayo again! It takes about five minutes to make, uses common ingredients, and is incredibly creamy and delicious, so let’s get to whisking!

Honey Cinnamon Butter

This stuff is like spreading crack on your biscuits. It may become very difficult to stop eating whatever is lucky enough to be lathered in this delicious “butter”! You could just spread butter on your bread, then honey, and sprinkle cinnamon after, but why not just take a second, whip all this together into one delicious spread?

I highly recommend it.

Buttermilk Biscuits

Buttermilk Biscuits  | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #biscuits #dinner

My favourite kind of recipes are those that are easy, yet impressive, and buttermilk biscuits definitely meet that criteria! They take about 30 minutes start to finish, they use common household baking ingredients, and the smell/taste of freshly baked biscuits is amazing! What better way than a video, to show you how easy they are!

I actually shot and edited the majority of this video over a year ago, but for whatever reason I never completely finished it. Fortunately I was making biscuits last night, so I decided it was time to wipe off the cyber-dust it was collecting, finish the video, and finally post the damn thing!

Grilled Peach, Chicken & Arugula Salad

Grilled Peach, Chicken, & Arugula Salad | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #barbecue #salad

Barbecue season is here! To celebrate, Carlene and I were asked to talk about barbecuing on CBC Radio’s Saskatoon morning show, and to share some barbecue recipes that differed from the usual steak and burgers. Although we already have a fair bit of unique BBQ recipes on the blog, it got me thinking about the other things I have barbecued but never blogged. 

I love grilling squash, veggies, fruit, grilled cheese, you name it, I’ll grill it! With all those on my mind, I settled on making something with grilled peaches. That way I could incorporate it into a main dish, as well as a dessert!

Grilled Peaches & Ice Cream

Grilled Peach & Ice Cream | bsinthekitchen.com #bsinthekitchen #barbecue #dessert

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!

Fried Egg, Sriracha, & Peanut Butter Toasts

Fried Egg, Sriracha, & Peanut Butter Toast | bsinthekitchen.com #sriracha #toast #bsinthekitchen

When I first saw this recipe in Bon Appetit, it was so strange, I couldn’t not try it. I showed it to my room-mates, Celeste and Ross, and we were all intrigued enough to test it out.

Of course, we couldn’t just leave the recipe alone, so we added a fried egg, and the results were quite amazing! After eating it, we realized this toast actually made perfect sense! It had a lot of flavours typically used in Asian cuisine, with its use of peanut, sriracha, green onion, cilantro, and lime.
