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.

Banana Coconut Daiquiri

Banana Coconut Daquiri

Nothing says Fall like a fruity cocktail. Oh wait...that doesn't quite go.

The days are getting shorter and work is getting busier, and I decided there was nothing wrong with treating ourselves to a daiquiri and pretending we were on a Caribbean island.

I was inspired by my new Blendtec that I won from a giveaway over at The Noble Pig, and felt the urge to break it in with a cocktail. I previously thought spending $400+ on a blender was ludicrous, but I've had it less than a week and its amazing. My daiquiri seriously had the consistency of one you would find at a resort. I can't wait to start experimenting with recipes more adventurous than cocktails, smoothies and soups. 

Below is the recipe for two drinks, I'd double it, you'll want more than one. Don't skip the toasted coconut, it was the perfect touch!

3 oz. dark rum
2 frozen ripe bananas (you can use bananas that aren't frozen, just add a little more ice at the end)
1/2 cup coconut milk
1/2 lime, juice from
3 to 4 handfuls of ice (I have fairly small hands, so if you have big hands go with 2 to 3)
1/3 cup toasted coconut (to toast the coconut I just heated in a stove top pan over medium to medium high heat until the coconut got toasty)

Place rum, bananas, coconut milk, lime juice and ice in blender and blend.

Top with toasted coconut.
