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.

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.

Avocado Toast with Tomato

Avocado Toast with Tomato

I love avocados, and based on all of the visits and love I have received on this Avocado Chicken Salad post, you guys do too. I'm really glad we could find that common ground, I really see us having a future together.

This is a simple recipe that works for a healthy breakfast, lunch, a snack or even a light dinner. You could also leave the cheese off to make it even healthier. I had some pepper jack cheese on hand though and couldn't resist! I'm a sucker for cheese, especially if it adds some spice.

Here's the recipe for 1 toast, but I'm warning you know, you will most likely want to make more than 1!

Baked Butternut Squash Fries

Butternut Squash Fries

You already know I love butternut squash, well I also love french fries. Who doesn't? The attempt I made at a healthier alternative with these Butternut Squash Fries turned out great. That was our lunch Saturday, it's normal to eat fries for lunch right?

The best part was that these were really easy, cutting up the squash was the most difficult part, but the video I linked to in this post makes that part pretty simple too. I played around with thinner fries and wedges, I like mine crisp (hence some of the burnt parts you see in the picture) so I would recommend going the thin route. If you are more of a wedge type person, then of course go for the thicker cut!

They were delicious plain, but we also dipped them in

Jalapeño Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Chive Goat Cheese Filling

Cornbread Whoopie Pies

You heard me right, I said Jalepeno Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Chive Goat Cheese Filling! As promised from my chili post I have the recipe for you guys and you have to give these a try. When Dennis emailed asking if he could bring these to chili club, my jaw dropped and I immediately started drooling. My only issue with him bringing them is that I would have to share them with everyone else. They were so good and definitely complemented the chili nicely. There is no need for me to go on, they speak for themselves. Make these, it would be a fun baking project for this weekend!

Below is the recipe from Whoopie Pies: Dozens of Mix 'em, Match 'em, Eat 'em Recipes. After trying these puppies I'm either going to have to buy this book or permanently borrow Dennis'!

Stacked Sweet Potatoes

Stacked Scalloped Sweet Potatoes

By now you probably know that Sweet Potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, especially when I get to throw some cheese on top of them! If you're still looking for a last minute side dish for Christmas these are a fun way to serve up some sweet potatoes. You can slice up the sweet potatoes ahead of time and once that job is done they are pretty easy to throw together. They're cute individual servings that could also work as an appetizer.

I also encourage you to play around, use regular potatoes, mix up the type of cheese and use different herbs.  Get wild! I used 2 sweet potatoes and it made enough to fill up one cupcake pan (12 stacks).

Sriracha Meatballs

Sriracha Meatballs

I've told you this before, but I love Sriracha. So it shouldn't be all too surprising to you that I dreamt about Sriracha meatballs. I'm not kidding, it was the night I had this Sriracha Glazed Chicken for dinner so Sriracha was on my mind and it was totally natural. I believe those dreams that don't involve Sriracha or meatballs are called nightmares.

Next step was making my dreams come true and boy did I make that happen. I made so many meatballs we were able to eat them straight up, dipped in Sriracha of course. They were also good dipped in terriyaki sauce

and on pizza with spinach, mushrooms, mozarella and ricotta. 

Sriracha Meatball Pizza

That's right, I said ricotta, now I have the excuse to make this for breakfast. We won't get into the issues I had getting the pizza from the peel to the stone. Let's just say it wasn't pretty and I need some more practice, let's just move onto the recipe that is adapted from Life Ambrosia.
