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.

Jalapeño Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Chive Goat Cheese Filling

Cornbread Whoopie Pies

You heard me right, I said Jalepeno Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Chive Goat Cheese Filling! As promised from my chili post I have the recipe for you guys and you have to give these a try. When Dennis emailed asking if he could bring these to chili club, my jaw dropped and I immediately started drooling. My only issue with him bringing them is that I would have to share them with everyone else. They were so good and definitely complemented the chili nicely. There is no need for me to go on, they speak for themselves. Make these, it would be a fun baking project for this weekend!

Below is the recipe from Whoopie Pies: Dozens of Mix 'em, Match 'em, Eat 'em Recipes. After trying these puppies I'm either going to have to buy this book or permanently borrow Dennis'!

For the Jalepeno Cornbread Whoopie
1-1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup buttermilk
4 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
1 egg
2 jalepeno peppers, seeded and diced

Position oven rack in center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper (you may actually need more than 2 baking sheets).

In a medium bowl stirl together flour, cornmeal, baking powder and salt. In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer and using the paddle attachment, mix together on low brown sugar, buttermilk, butter and egg, until just combined. Increase mixing speed to medium and mix for a few minutes until well combined. Add the flour mixture and diced peppers to the mixing bowl. Mix until just combined. 

Use a spoon to drop about 1 tablespoon of batter onto the baking sheets. Continue with the rest of batter, placing each tablespoon about 2 inches apart.

Bake for about 12 minutes, or until edges start to brown. Remove from oven, let sit for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.

For the Bacon Chive Goat Cheese Filling
6 slices of bacon (Dennis used maple bacon and I recommend that, it really added a nice touch of sweetness)
4 oz. soft fresh goat cheese, at room temperature
4 oz. cream cheese, at room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon fresh chives, chopped

Cook bacon over medium heat in a skillet until crisp. Place on paper towels to drain and let cool. Once cool, crumbe bacon.

Beat together goat cheese, cream cheese and milk on low speed until just combined. Increase to medium and beat for a few more minutes until it is smooth and creamy. Mix in chives and bacon.

To Assemble Whoopie Pies
Place about 1 tablespoon of Goat Cheese Filling in between two whoopie halves (once they are cooled completely). Now I dare you to eat just one!

These look incredible! I would probably eat 3 or 4 without stopping for air.
