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.

Cedar Planked Salmon with Cayenne Lime Butter

Copper River Salmon Cedar Planked

Remember when I told you how Copper River Salmon gets the red carpet treatment when it arrives here in Seattle? Well, the folks over at Copper River Salmon were nice enough to send me some Sockeye Salmon. And since copper river salmon tastes like butter, I was pretty darn excited!

This salmon is so delicious on it's own, so I knew I would be doing something pretty simple. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter. We've had a ton of visitors since we've moved to Seattle, and cedar planking salmon is a go to dish to show them a taste of Seattle on their visit.  The Cayenne Lime Butter was an added twist, and one I'll be using again. On salmon, on veggies, on steak, and guzzling straight up.

Slow Cooker Kalua Pork

Slow Cooker Kalua Pork 2

I'm on a roll with easy recipes for you all, with my 3 Ingredient Beer Bread, Strawberry Bruschetta and now this easy Slow Cooker Kalua Pork! 

This recipe was inspired by our recent trip to Hawaii and the red and black sea salts I picked up when I was there. The traditional method of cooking Kalua Pork is digging a pit, and cooking the pig underground with lava rock and banana leaves all day long. I skipped digging a pit in my backyard and let my slow cooker make the magic happen.

Mr. KMW absolutely loved this pork. He requested I get the recipe posted right away so he can make it when I go out of town next week. 

The pork is versatile and you can

Strawberry Bruschetta

Strawberry Bruschetta

 

I  just can't get enough strawberries lately. The strawberries I'm finding at my market are bursting with flavor, and I find myself coming home with 1,2...or sometimes 3 pints each visit.

Today, I have for you, a super easy and delicious strawberry appetizer for your summer entertaining!

Needless to say, when I had a BBQ this weekend, strawberries were going to be on the menu. I already had a dessert plan so I decided to go with something a little more savory. I saw a handful of Strawberry Bruschetta recipes that call for goat or cream cheese, but I tried that, and I thought it took away from the rich strawberry flavor. And since I can't get enough strawberry in my life these days, I clearly did not want any cheese interfering with the flavor.

Reader Alert: This is the first time in my life I have ever opted out of eating or using cheese. I am a cheese addict.

3 Ingredient Beer Bread

Beer Bread 2

 

This is no joke, I have a 3 ingredient homemade bread here for you all today! No fancy machines needed.

I came home from work, tossed 3 ingredients in a bowl, mixed them together, put them in the oven, and then I was on to making dinner. Easy as that. And it's delicious! I am a total sucker for warm bread, fresh out of the oven, and I learned that Mr. KMW is too. I made it last night, and I refuse to admit how much or how little is left...

 

Beer Bread 3

 

This is a recipe from my Mom (that she got from a neighbor back in the day), she made it quite a bit growing up and I now know why. Easy to make and even easier to devour.

Copper River Salmon Lands in Seattle

IMG_9256

That's right, it literally lands in Seattle, jetted in from Cordova on an Alaska Airlines plane. Friday morning, I was up bright and early to participate in this Seattle Springtime right of passage. With the kick off of the Copper River Salmon Season, media and celebrity chefs head out to SeaTac Airport to give the first fish that arrive to Seattle the red carpet treatment. Once it arrives, we all celebrate with a celebrity chef cook off, and eating salmon for breakfast. 

Before we got to the cooking, I was in awe watching this man filet the salmon. It was impressive.

Sure, I'll have a fresh piece...it tasted like butter in my mouth.

Look at how beautiful that salmon is!

After drooling over the raw fish, the chefs got to cooking. I of course had fun just watching the chefs do their thang, although tasting was a nice perk as well. I wasn't the only one who was happy to be having Salmon fro breakfast.

Judges, Mike Fourtner (from Deadliest Catch) and Jay Buhner (Mariners Hall of Famer) seemed to be having a really good time as well.

And the winner...
