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.

Peanut Butter Pancakes

Is Summer flying by for everyone else?

We've been busy settling into our new house, hosting visitors and enjoying the beautiful Seattle Summer. Last week we made a trip back to the East Coast for my friend, Samantha's, wedding and had a fantastic weekend. Congratulations to the happy bride and groom!

Samantha was a college friend, so I had a great time catching up with friends.

This week we're hosting my brother, Aaron's familly, they're up visiting from California. An advantage of West Coast living is that we get to see them more often, we're loving having a full house and getting some quality time in with our nephews.

Oh, and these pancakes? They have nothing to do with our trip to the East Coast or my nephews. Well maybe I'll make them for my nephews, but these may be beyond their comfort zone, they're pretty picky. Then again, who couldn't go for some fluffy, peanut buttery pancakes to start the day?

Pike Place Market Food Tour

Pike Place Market

Since we moved to Seattle, we have had a ton of visitors, which we love. When we are pulling together the itinerary for our visitors, snacking our way through Pike Place Market is always on the top of the list. You can't visit Seattle with out visiting the market, and you can't visit the market on a full stomach.

This is the time of year when people are flocking to Seattle, it's absolutely gorgeous here right now, so I thought I'd share this tour so you can take advantage on your next trip to Seattle! Don't worry, this tour is delicious rain or shine.

We usually deprive our visitors of breakfast in preparation for this tour, yet it's still difficult to finish. So go hungry and stay strong! Let's get started.

Once you check out the men throwing fish at the entrance, hang a sharp left and hit up the Daily Dozen Doughnut Company and pick up a half dozen assorted doughnuts,

and then let them melt in your mouth.

Next up, as you walk your way back towards the entrance stop at Mt. Townsend Creamery and try the sampler of cheese.

It's early, but I'm going to give you an eating break to go check out the World Spice Merchants in the corner.

This would be a great place to pick up a souvenir for a foodie friend or just to treat yourself. 

Next, up, go back to the guys throwing fish. Buy yourself the Pike Place Fish Guys Cookbook, yes get yourself another souvenir, but you'll love the Seattle inspiration when cooking at home. I hear they sign the copy when you buy it there.

Back to eating. Once

Corn Risotto Stuffed Poblanos

Corn Risotto bStuffed Poblano Peppers

The name says it all, these Corn Risotto Stuffed Poblano Peppers were freaking ridiculously good! Fresh summer corn on the cob is used for the creamy and delicious risotto and the flavors blend perfectly with the poblano pepper.

Mr. KMW and I could not get enough. It was one of those nights, we were really happy we hadn't invited friends over for dinner, this way we got to eat the second helpings ourselves. We swear we love our friends, its just that sometimes him being an only child comes out in the both of us.

I got the recipe from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Remember when I had this on my Christmas list? Well my parents traipsed around the state of New Jersey to get me a signed copy!

And since I have been a longtime fan of Deb over at Smitten Kitchen I gave one to my sister-in-law for Christmas. Now our new favorite pastime when we get together is swapping stories about the mouth drooling recipes we've made out of this cookbook. This one has gotten so much use at our house, the pages are sticking together. No question in my mind you should go get yourself a copy of this cookbook!

Below is the recipe, with a few minor adjustments from the original.

Roasted Garlic and Sriracha Mac & Cheese

Roasted Garlic & Sriracha Mac & Cheese

I wanted to get you guys ready for your Fourth of July BBQ's with some Mac & Cheese. And apparently this Mac & Cheese to prep you for July 4th is becoming an annual event, last year I tee'd you up with Serrano Spinach Mac & Cheese.

I loved this roasted garlic and sriracha version, those are two things that are almost as dear to my heart as macaroni and cheese!

I hope everyone has a fun time celebrating 'Merica!

Hazelnut Pesto Pasta with Salmon

Hazelnut Pesto Pasta with Salmon

Today I had one of those evenings that really emphasized why I love Summer in Seattle. I came home from work, stopped at the grocery store, went for a a run where I caught glimpses of the Olympic Mountains over the Puget Sound, had a glass of wine, made dinner and it was still daylight out! 

Something else to love about Summer is that it's Copper River Salmon season and thanks to the folks over at Copper River Wild I have salmon coming out of my ears these days. And you know how we love salmon at our house! 

We also love pasta, especially this Hazelnut Pesto Pasta. Not only was it absolutely delicious, but you can't beat how pretty and colorful it is!
