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.

Gnocchi with Butternut Squash & Collard Greens

Gnocchi with Butternut Squash & Collard Greens

Butternut Squash and Collard Greens were in our CSA delivery a couple of weeks ago. I know, we're becoming sooooo Seattle, we belong to a CSA and as you can tell by the picture, Mr. KMW is always in plaid flannel these days.

In addition to those veggies, I also had some gnocchi on hand and this happened. This was really good, delicious flavors and I don't feel as guilty eating pasta when it is loaded with veggies. I hope I have some gnocchi fans out there, because this is a recipe you'll want to try. And if you are a gnocchi fan, you'll also want to check out my Shrimp & Sausage Gnocchi with Asparagus.

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 butternut squash, peeled and cubed
1/2 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 small bunch collard greens
3/4 cup milk
1/3 cup parmesan cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons dried thyme
1 package of gnocchi, approx. 10 oz.

Heat olive oil over medium to medium high heat in large stovetop pan.

Add butternut squash, onion and garlic, and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring around occasionally. Adding collard greens about 6 to 8 minutes in.

Meanwhile cook gnocchi according to package directions.

Mash squash in pan with potato masher (if it's not easy to mash, cook it a little longer). Stir in milk, parmesan and thyme. Taste to see if more seasoning is needed and adjust accordingly.

Stir gnocchi into squash and collard greens mixture.  Serve and enjoy!
