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.

Sugar Snap Peas with Crushed Red Pepper

Sugar Snap Peas with Crushed Red Pepper

I had family visiting a couple of weeks ago and the plan was to make these Curried Mussels for dinner. If you like mussels, you have to try that recipe, it's amazing!

I was at a loss of what to make as a side dish...besides the obvious frites and a loaf of French bread to soak up the sauce. Those are both a must. I threw out the question of what vegetable to make as a side on Facebook, and Emily from Cozumel Chef was to the rescue! Her recommendation was a little butter or good olive oil, snap peas & crushed red pepper. It was super simple, quick and the perfect side. I added a little ginger and garlic. My only regret was only getting one pound of Snap Peas instead of two.

Before we get onto the recipe, we need to go back to Emily being a chef in Cozumel. I would love to go visit Cozumel and go on a food our and take a cooking class with Emily. Let me know if you beat me there!

2 tablespoons good olive oil
2 teaspoons grated ginger
1 clove minced garlic
1 pound sugar snap peas
1 to 2 tablespoons crushed red pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Heat oil in stove top pan over medium high to high heat. Once heated, add ginger, garlic and snap peas. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Season with crushed red pepper and salt and serve.
