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.

Tom Douglas' Hot Pepper Wings with Cilantro Sour Cream

Hot Pepper Wings with Cilantro Sour Cream

 

Tom Douglas is THE chef out here. He owns a ton of restaurantsand the ones I have tried have been fantastic. Can't wait to check more off my list! When I had these wings at his restaurant, Palace Kitchen, I immediately came home to see if they were in his cookbook that I have.

And we're in luck!

I'm a big fan of the grilling technique in this wing recipe, it was pretty hands off and they cook fairly quick. I'm definitely going to be trying to make the Asian Style Baked Wings on the grill next. I think it would be an easy method to use when entertaining and they turned out really juicy.

A few things were off in the execution of the wings...they may have been marinated after a night out at the bar and some reading comprehension issues may have been involved. Regardless, they were still declious and I'll definitely be making these again. I love wings. And the Cilantro Sour Cream

Grilled Asparagus & Goat Cheese Polenta Cakes

I'M BACK!

Hopefully you guys didn't miss me too much and you were as entertained with Mr. KMW's post as I was. I had no idea that he had this up his sleeve, and when I happened to see it pop into my newsfeed I was happily surprised.

I was away on business last week, and spent my days at the LA Convention center in Video Game insanity at E3 (a video game conference). 

 

E3

 

After an exhausting week, I took the train out to the burbs where my brother and sister-in-law live and spent the weekend getting some fun in with my nephews. They're pretty awesome kids. 

Monkey in the Middle was involved.

As I'm getting back into the groove, I'm starting off with a simple recipe. With Asparagus in season I thought it would be perfect timing for

Pepperoni and Spinach Stromboli

Pepperoni and Spinach Stromboli

So I know this isn't pretty, but if I can't be honest with you guys when I screw up, what kind of imaginary internet friends are you?

This is what happens when you squeeze in making a stromboli in between a bloody mary filled brunch and the Super Bowl. Despite the gaping hole it didn't disappoint! It's so good when it's fresh out of the oven and the cheese is oozing, you have to try this recipe out.

This is Dennis' ridiculously easy and tasty stromboli recipe, I've seen him serve it (without a hole) many times and it's always a crowd pleaser. Dennis usually stuck with just cheese and pepperoni, but I decided to throw in some spinach. I convinced myself that the nutritional value of the spinach would offset the cheese and pepperoni. That makes sense, right? You can easily

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

BBQ Chicken Quinoa Stuffed Avocado

 

I'm alive! Swimming in boxes, busy unpacking and enjoying my favorite time of year, March Madness. I can't get enough college basketball this time of year. Big Kansas fan here, Rock Chalk Jayhawk!

Once I get unpacked and get my kitchen in order, which requires a trip to The Container Store, I'll be back in action and posting more regularly. I'm still figuring out how to do my food shopping, so many options with Trader Joe's, Whole Foods, Safeway, Amazon Fresh and of course the farmer's markets. 

Anyway, onto this dish that was inspired by Gaby's BBQ Chicken Quinoa Salad. I've had the urge to stuff an avocado for awhile now and once I saw her BBQ Chicken Quinoa it was fate, that is what my avocado would be stuffed with. Despite not looking that pretty, it was delicious! This is a

Greek Cucumber Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites make for a healthy, easy and tasty appetizer. Can't beat that, can you?!

I made them for the Super Bowl, but they would work well for the holidays or any gathering really, they make for great finger food. They're also an easy appetizer to bring to a party, because they don't have to be heated up.

I'm always looking for healthier appetizer options so when I saw Katie's Cucumber Feta Rolls over at Good Life Eats they definitely jumped out at me. I ended up making bites instead of rolls since they would be easier to slice up and I also wouldn't have to deal with toothpicks. You know me, I'm always looking for
