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.

After having a bite of the Chipotle Chicken Tacos my coworker brought for lunch a couple of weeks ago, this was my dinner two days later.

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.

Sriracha Meatballs

Sriracha Meatballs

I've told you this before, but I love Sriracha. So it shouldn't be all too surprising to you that I dreamt about Sriracha meatballs. I'm not kidding, it was the night I had this Sriracha Glazed Chicken for dinner so Sriracha was on my mind and it was totally natural. I believe those dreams that don't involve Sriracha or meatballs are called nightmares.

Next step was making my dreams come true and boy did I make that happen. I made so many meatballs we were able to eat them straight up, dipped in Sriracha of course. They were also good dipped in terriyaki sauce

and on sliders

and on pizza with spinach, mushrooms, mozarella and ricotta. 

Sriracha Meatball Pizza

That's right, I said ricotta, now I have the excuse to make this for breakfast. We won't get into the issues I had getting the pizza from the peel to the stone. Let's just say it wasn't pretty and I need some more practice, let's just move onto the recipe that is adapted from Life Ambrosia.

Ingredients
1 lb ground turkey
1 lb ground pork
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup panko bread crumbs
1/2 onion, chopped
4 green onions chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/3 cup Sriracha (adjust to spice preferences)
1-2 tablespoons low sodium soy sauce
2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 teaspoons pepper
canola oil

Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all ingredients, mixing well, but not over mixing. Form into small meatballs (makes approx. 40 depending on size). 

Heat canola oil in pan over medium high heat on stovetop. Cook meatballs in pan until just browned.

Bake in preheated oven about 20 minutes, or until cooked through. Enjoy!

Wow- what a great site! I like that you've got photos that show it like it is. Thank you for your shipment of cookies from the Food Bloggers Cookie Swap yesterday- so good! They were also a hit with coworkers (as per my policy of enjoying 2 or 3 of each dozen and offering the rest, so that I don't gain a bunch of weight). I am loving this experiment and how it introduces us to all these great new blogs :-)

Margaret - I'm glad you enjoyed the cookies, I've had fun checking out your blog as well! Great idea with the sharing, it's hard to have self control with all of the yummy cookies!

Sam - They were so good, enjoy!

I love sriracha! I am so glad I found this recipe, I'll be making them tonight! I think your pizza looks amazing, so I'll do that. Did you just spread the ricotta on the dough and then the toppings? It looks great. =D

I put a little pizza sauce on and then just plopped dollops of ricotta around the pizza, I didn't necessarily spread it, just spooned it on, and then I put the ingredients on top. You making this makes me hungry for it again! Enjoy!

I'm glad you dreamt of Siracha meatballs, because this is exactly what I need tonight. I was going to make mini 'regular' meatballs and serve them with peanut satay sauce, but then on the way home from the store I thought "I wonder if I could make them with Siracha sauce instead of tomato paste," and voila, Google brought me here! I hadn't even thought of a meatball pizza, or a meatball slider! So thanks for those great ideas! I'll be back, I'm sure!
