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.

Snickers Cupcakes

Snickers Cupcakes

Another dessert for you guys, this time it's in honor of Mr. KMW's birthday. If you remember from last year, he's a big Snickers fan so I went with a Snickers Ice Cream Pie. I had to mix it up this year and went with Snickers Cupcakes. Mr. KMW questioned me whether my motivation is truly for his birthday or if it's for my blog, especially when I shout, 'NO, YOU CAN'T TRY THOSE YET, I HAVEN'T TAKEN A PICTURE!' 

All of the doubting went away as soon as he found the suprise in the middle.

Snickers Cupcakes 2

That's right, I put a mini Snickers inside each one of those cupcakes. Surprise!

I used Amanda & Kevins Best Chocolate Cake recipe as a base, stuffed a mini Snickers inside, frosted it with caramel frosting and topped it with some more crumbled Snickers. 

Let's just say that Mr. KMW was one happy birthday boy!

Reese's Pieces & Pretzel Blondies

Reese's Pieces Pretzel Blondies

It has been awhile since I shared a sweet treat on here with you all, and you're going to like this one. These sweet blonde brownies filled with Reese's Pieces are balanced out by salty pretzles. I just love a sweet and salty combination.

I try to avoid cooking sweets too often, because I tend to eat half the batter before anything goes in the oven, then proceed to lick the beaters and decide that a sugar filled treat is the breakfast of champions. Not to mention, I try to stack my brownies and cookies like all of the fancy bloggers do and it turns into the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Apple Zucchini Bread

Apple Zucchini Bread

I woke up early Saturday morning, inspired by the apples I had brought home from work on Friday and was ready to bake.

I decided to break out my Grandma's Zucchini Bread Recipe and just substitute some apples. My Grandma was a bread baking machine. It was a given that whenever we would visit my Grandparents farm growing up, there would be fresh bread available. My cousins and I would devour it at the breakfast table and more would appear, there was a never ending source...which may or may not have been the freezer.  Zucchini, Carrot and Banana were the usual suspects, and with apples on hand I knew zucchini was the route to go last weekend. If my Grandma could

Happy Birthday Kiss My Whisk & A Prized Angel Food Cake

Prize Angel Food Cake

I just realized that Kiss My Whisk is one year old today and I still have time to get a post up to celebrate! I knew it was sometime around the end of March, so I just checked to see what the exact day was and what do you know!

It's been a great year and I have had so much fun with this blog. It always makes me smile when I hear friends, family, coworkers and strangers are trying out (and enjoying) my recipes or that one has become a staple in their house. I've enjoyed meeting and being inspired by all of the wonderful food bloggers out there, and I have of course loved eating all of the food I'm cooking! It definitely urged me to cook more and try out delicious new foods. I can also tell you Mr. KMW has thorougly enjoyed reaping the benefits. 

I think it's perfect timing that this Wang Burger was my first post, which was a copycat of a burger from The Wheel in Lawrence, KS, home of the Kansas Jayhawks. And guess what, they are playing in the Final Four this weekend!  So let's all make a Wang Burger to celebrate KMW's birthday and cheer on the Jayhawks. I also like to see how far my posts have come along since my original posting.

Time to move on from the fact that my first post was a cheeseburger with bacon and a fried egg on it, no wonder my husband loves me!

Lucky for me I have a picture of my Mom's (originally Grandma's) Prized Angel Food Cake in my back pocket to post for you guys! This cake is so light and fluffy. So light we can pretend it's dietary, especially if

Peanut Butter Banana Muffins with Chocolate & Butterscotch Chips

Peanut Banana Muffins with Chocolate & Butterscotch Chips

Don't you just want to bite into that?

I may be pushing it a bit by calling this a muffin and not a cupcake, but it doesn't have frosting so I'm going with muffin. That way it gives us an excuse to eat it for breakfast. You're welcome. Or even better it would be a great way to both start and finish your day, have it in the morning for breakfast and then after dinner for dessert. 

You can play around with
