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.

Orecchiette with Brussels Sprouts, Chorizo & Mushrooms

Brussels Sprouts Orecchiete with Chorizo & Mushrooms

This pasta hit the spot. Mr. KMW declared it was one of his favorite pastas that I have ever made. Although, he seems to do that a lot when I make pasta...with the Spicy Pork Ragu, Penne Vodka with Salmon, Linguine with Clams, Butternut Squash Pasta Bake, Pasta with Pancetta with Leeks...really the list could go on.

The brussels sprouts, chorizo and mushrooms not only complemented each other in flavor, but the textures really blended well together. And having brussels sprouts just make a dish feel healthier in general...despite the amount of oil used.

I found this recipe over at Playin With My Food, I made a few minor changes and added chorizo, because I love it. This recipe was such a hit in our house, I'll definitely be keeping up with Playing With My Food to find recipe inspiration in the future.

Spicy Chicken Sausage, Butternut Squash & Kale Stew

Chicken Sausage, Butternut Squash & Kale Stew

I really didn't know what to call this soup...or stew.

I started out with the idea of a Butternut Squash Minestrone, then quickly realized I used all my chicken broth up with this Butternut Squash Risotto and did not have any elbow macaroni. So to the pantry I went!

Luckily I had a ginormous squash for the risotto, so there was plenty of that left. I used crushed tomatoes, milk and half and half to result in a delicious, creamy stew broth. Add in potatoes, butternut squash, spicy chicken sausage and kale and you have a soup that's as colorful as fall foliage and is bursting with flavor. 

One other result, you fight over who gets to bring the leftovers for lunch. Luckily, I dominate at thumb wars.

Butternut Squash Risotto with Maple Soy Glazed Salmon

I know, it has been FOREVER. I've been really busy at work and we've had a lot of visitors in October. Both mine and Mr. KMW's coworkers have questioned if we're running a bed and breakfast on the side, we're not...we just love having our friends and family visit. 

I'm going to make it up to you by posting a very yummy recipe....Creamy Butternut Squash Risotto with a flavor filled Maple Soy Glazed Salmon on top. Fall deliciousness.

Before I get to the food here's a little more detail of what we've been up to the past few weeks. 

My cousin from Missouri made a pit stop in Seattle as part of a longer trip, and we spent a rainy night watching the Sounders soccer game. Sounders games have such a fun atmosphere, we often try to fit a game in when visitors are in town.

Our friend Cole visited and we hiked up to Lake Serene. It was, well...serene, one of the prettiest hikes we've been on since moving out to Seattle.

Philly Cheesesteak

Cheesesteak2

When it comes to the Pat's vs. Geno's debate, I'm on Team Pat all the way...whiz with onions. When I'm 2,800 miles away from Philadelphia, I'm on team Kiss My Whisk. Thanks to Cooks Illustrated, I've found a darn good make at home option. All it's missing is the whiz, but I can definitely solve that next time!

The trick?

Grilled Salmon Panzanella

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to the East Coast, and it started a little something like this. I arrive at the airport last Tuesday night to take the redeye to Charlotte and the following conversation happens.

'Mam, the computer is not working and I cannot check in' - Me


'Hmm, that's odd, what is your name?' - Lady at the Airline Desk

 I provide her my name, she can't find it.

'I have my confirmation number' - Me

I proceed to give her my confirmation number

'Your flight is on the 18th' - Lady at the Airline Desk

'Yes, the 18th, that's it, for some reason I can't pull it up' - Me

'The 18th is tomorrow' - Lady at the Airline Desk

I put my head down, walk away and Mr. KMW comes back to pick me up and I tried again the next night...thankfully with success the second time around.

After that little hiccup, I arrived in the Carolinas, met my new nephew and let my niece show off what a loving big sister she is,

had an early birthday dinner to celebrate my Dad's 60th (sorry no pictures),

and then headed up to NJ to surprise my best friend for her 30th birthday, whose due next month...doesn't she look fantastic?

We had a pretty relaxing weekend with good food, massages and bagels. I refuse to make a trip back to NJ without eating a bagel. 

I arrived back to Seattle Sunday in time to pretend it is still summer, and make Grilled Salmon Panzanella.
