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.

Serrano Creamed Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes

Serrano Spinach Stuffed Tomatoes

With the mouth watering Rib-Eye with Stout Sauce we had last week, I made these stuffed tomatoes on the side, and it was the perfect touch to a date night dinner at home. The bottom of that tomato tasted really darn good after soaking in that stout sauce.

I used my Serrano Creamed Spinach recipe as a base (I'm addicted to that stuff), scooped out a tomato and baked it. Easy as that, and it looks kind of fancy. Well, maybe it would, if you were more delicate than me and didn't crack the tomato when you were scooping the inside out. Being delicate isn't really my thing. 

Keep reading for the recipe, which will work for two overly stuffed large tomatoes or four smaller tomatoes. It may have served more, but I kept snacking on the spinach while making it.

Ingredients
1 10 oz. package chopped frozen spinach
3-4 serrano peppers, chopped
3 oz low fat cream cheese (or about 1/3 of a block)
1-2 tablespoons milk
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling on top of tomatoes
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 to 4 tomatoes

Directions 
Cook spinach according to package directions, drain and squeeze out excess water.

Preheat broiler.

Place spinach and all remaining ingredients in stovetop pan and heat over medium to medium low heat, stirring occasionally. Cook until heated through and cheese is bubbling.  

While spinach is cooking, cut the tops off the tomato and using a spoon, scoop on the seeds and some of the inside of the tomato.

Stuff tomatoes with spinach, sprinkle with more parmesan cheese.

Place under broiler until cheese starts to melt, approximately 3 to 5 minutes. Keep a close eye on the food under broiler, that can burn food really quick.
