The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

This salmon is so delicious on it's own. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter.

If you know me you know I am a sucker for avocado and chipotle. I used a rotisserie chicken so it's super easy to make.

Egg, Prosciutto & Tomato Muffins
Sriracha Meatballs

I'm a big fan of savory muffins. These are pretty much mini omelettes in a cup. They are perfect for weekend brunch, and even better to make ahead for the week and then pop them in the microwave.

Homemade Enchilada Sauce

Enchilada Sauce

Tonight's dinner was Butternut Squash, Black Bean, and Spinach Enchiladas, but before I share that recipe with you I need to share my homemade enchilada sauce recipe. I know the canned enchilada sauce is tempting, but this is so darn easy I recommend you giving it a try next time you're making enchiladas. Which just might be later this week after you see tomorrow's post on the echiladas I had for dinner tonight. Even Mr. KMW, who is always skeptic of a meatless dinner approved and wants me to make it again! Okay, I need to stay focused, keep reading for the Homemade Enchilada Sauce recipe. 

2-3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 tablespoon flour
1/3 cup chili powder
6 ounces tomato paste
1-1/2 cups low sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Heat vegetable oil over medium high heat, then stir in flour until well combined. Stir in chili powder and cook for less than a minute. Add in remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
