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.

Spicy Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli over Soba Noodles

Spicy Garlic Shrimp & Broccoli


I hope everyone had a nice weekend. It was absolutely beautiful here in Seattle and we took advantage of the weather with some wine tasting on Saturday and ventured out kayaking on Lake Union today. We've had a few nice weekends in a row, and I'm pretty sure this is not something we should get used to, but I'll take it for now!

Kayaking Lake Union


Onto the food, that's why you're here after all. This Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Broccoli is a recipe you want to try, probably this week. There are not very many ingredients, the shrimp cooks so quick, and it's pretty darn tasty. I'm definitely adding this into my weeknight dinner rotation.

We ate it over soba buckwheat noodles, I have a recent obsession with them. Not sure where it came from, but I tend to not ask questions and just eat.

1-1/2 pounds shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails removed
2 cups broccoli florets
4-5 ounces soba buckwheat noodles, cooked according to package directions (I used about half of an 8.8 oz pack of Eden noodles)
1/4 cup low sodium soy sauce, plus 2 teaspoons (divided)
3-4 tablespoons Sriracha, plus 1 teaspoon (divided)
1 tablespoon rice wine
1 tablespoon sesame oil
1 teaspoon sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
3 scallions, sliced
sesame seeds (optional)

In a small bowl, whisk together soy sauce, sriracha, rice wine, seame oil and sugar.

In a large non stick pan, heat olive oil over medium high heat. Once oil is heated, add garlic and broccoli. Cook for less than a minute, drizzle 2 teaspoons of soy sauce and 1 teaspoon of Sriracha over broccoli and stir around. Continue cooking, stirring regularly, for about 7 to 8 more minutes, until broccoli is tender. 

Add Shrimp to hot pan, cooking for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Cook until shrimp turns opaque and is just cooked through. 

Reduce heat in pan to medium low and add in soy sauce and sriracha mixture. Mix until broccoli and shrimp are well coated. Then add cooked Soba noodle to pan and stir until they are also well coated.

Serve, garnishing with scallions and sesame seeds. Also, feel free to garnish with more Sriracha if you want to turn up the spice!
