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.

Baked Butternut Squash Fries

Butternut Squash Fries

You already know I love butternut squash, well I also love french fries. Who doesn't? The attempt I made at a healthier alternative with these Butternut Squash Fries turned out great. That was our lunch Saturday, it's normal to eat fries for lunch right?

The best part was that these were really easy, cutting up the squash was the most difficult part, but the video I linked to in this post makes that part pretty simple too. I played around with thinner fries and wedges, I like mine crisp (hence some of the burnt parts you see in the picture) so I would recommend going the thin route. If you are more of a wedge type person, then of course go for the thicker cut!

They were delicious plain, but we also dipped them in the frite sauce we picked up when we were in Amsterdam. That stuff is so good and of course ketchup is always a good dipping go to as well. As always, adjust the seasonings to your taste.

1 butternut sqaush, de-seeded, peeled and cut into french fry shapes
2 tablespoons of olive oil or cooking spray
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

Place butternut squash on baking sheet and toss with oil (or spray with cooking spray), salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper.

Bake for approximately 40 minutes or until fries start to brown and become crips, stirring around about half way through.

Why didn't I think of that??? I LOVE butternut squash and I love fries even more. Pinned it!

What a great idea! I love oven fries but have never used butternut squash. I just happen to have one on the counter so looks like it might become fries!
