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.

Grapefruit Basil Gin Fizz

Grapefruit Basil Gin Fizz

As you know, we're moving and according to the moving company we must drink all of our alcohol before they pack us up. Somehow we ended up with 3 bottles of gin in our bar, you know 1 for each of us, and then an extra in case of an emergency. Hence the Grapefruit Basil GIN Fizz recipe. Feel free to come over for happy hour, we still have a ways to go. 

The recipe below is for one drink, but I know you'll want more, the basil adds a really nice touch.

Ingredients
4 basil leaves, 3 to be muddled, 1 for garnish
1 shot of gin
juice from 1/2 a grapefruit
1 shot of club soda
ice 

Directions
Muddle 3 basil leaves. Shake together muddled basil with gin, grapefruit. Pour over ice, top with club soda and garnish with a basil leaf.  Cheers!
