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.

Aaron's Grilled Paella

A couple of weeks ago, my family got together in California to surprise my Mom for her birthday, it was the big 6-0 so we wanted to do something special! With all of us living in opposite corners of the US (Seattle, LA, Charlotte & NJ), my mom doesn't have her grandkids and kids all together very often. Needles to say, both my Mom and Dad were very surprised to see us all show up in California.

We had fun enjoying the sunny weather, getting in some family time,

New Logo & Grove Pointe Chili Club

A new year and a new logo, I'm excited! A friend surprised me by emailing me a new banner and some new logos for FacebookTwitter & Google+. Don't worry, I wasn't offended that she didn't think my crooked chalkboard art was good enough, and I was absolutely thrilled with what she sent. Thank you Allison!

 

Beer Chili 2

Now onto the Grove Pointe Chili Club. You might remember at our last meeting Dennis wowed us with some labor intensive 8 Alarm Chili. It was absolutely delicious, but I was looking for something I could make on a weeknight, you know for those days you just sit at your desk and get a sudden craving for chili. Thanks to Sommer over at A Spicy Perspective I found the answer with her chili. I present you with a giant vat of Beer Chili!

Beer Chili 1

Yes, I know that's a lot of chili, so much there is evidence that it was overflowing down the sides of my 6-3/4 quart dutch oven, but I was feeding 7 and in my mind you can never have too much chili. Chili is ALWAYS good leftover and who doesn't love some nachos with the leftovers?

As Sommer said "Great chili is like a really good friend...loads of intrigue, substance and a little spice" and this chili is spot on. The flavors all really came together nicely and it had just the right amount of kick. The original recipe calls for it to simmer and cook for about 30 minutes, which makes it doable on a weeknight in my book. On the other hand if you have the time, definitely cook it longer as the flavors will come together even better. I let this one simmer for about 1-1/2 to 2 hours. 

Before I leave you with my adapted version of the chili recipe, I'm going to give you a teaser of the savory Jalepeno Cornbread Whoopie Pies with Bacon Chive Goat Cheese filling that Dennis brought (he always has to show me up), this recipe will be coming soon to KMW. You're not on a New Year's diet are you?
