The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

Cedar Planked Salmon with Cayenne Lime Butter

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.

Shrimp & Black Bean Taco Bowl

Shrimp & Black Bean Taco Bowl

Call me weird, but I don't even like Corona. What I can get behind is Corona Light as a light beer option, especially when it's served with this Spicy Shrimp Bowl. I won't put Corona Light on the ingredient list, but I recommend buying it to balance out the spice and to make you feel like you're on vacation on a random Wednesday night...even though you have to go to work in the morning. I know I write run on sentences, I was a better Math student.

I was in the mood for shrimp. Shrimp's a good go to weeknight dinner base, it cooks up quick and it's packed with protein. You can of course substitute ground beef or sliced chicken breast (just make sure time wise you cook them accordingly) if that's what you have on hand or shrimp is just not your thing.

BLT with Avocado & Barbecue Aioli

BLT with Avocado & BBQ Aioli

It's been 'hot' here in Seattle, luckily our hot doesn't compare to the rest of the country, we were hitting the high 80's. 

I love simple dinners like this BLT on hot summer nights. It's easy enough to cook up some bacon, but in our house we generally keep some cooked bacon in the freezer and then can just pop it in the microwave for about 10 seconds...making this a super easy dinner.

I kicked up the standard BLT by spreading

Grilled Bruschetta Chicken

Bruschetta Chicken

I have a healthy recipe here for you today...juicy grilled chicken breasts, topped with tomato, garlic and herbs.

To be honest, I generally find chicken thats not in the form of wings pretty boring, but this recipe did the trick. Nothing is worse than dry chicken, so I used tips from Kalyn on how to make juicy grilled chicken breasts...and it worked perfectly! Lot's of marination (did I make that word up?) went into making this chicken, I used a balsamic marinade for the chicken and marinated the tomato and herbs overnight...all of that marinating led to great flavors. One more great aspect of this dish is

Barbecue Salmon

Barbecue Salmon


I'm back with some more salmon. This time I combined it with one of my favorite types of food...BBQ. I'm partial to Kansas City Barbecue, but I came to appreciate Texas on our trip to Austin. So when Stubb's Barbecue Sauce was on sale at the store recently I loaded up and put it to use along with some Arthur Bryant's Rub.

I rubbed the Salmon with the Arthur Bryant's Rub, threw it on the grill, basted it with some barbecue sauce and a quick and easy dinner was served. Easy as that...three ingredient dinner. Just what I'm looking for after a long day of work.

We ate this straight up, but it would be delicious

Garlic Mustard & Shallot Turkey Burgers

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

We had a productive and busy weekend here. I finally unpacked our last moving box (yes, that's 3 months after moving in). It was full of my cookbooks and I found a shelf that works perfect for our space and we are officially box free!




We hit up the Chihuly Exhibit at the Seattle Center.

And took advantage of a beautiful Sunday to get a hike in at Rattlesnake Ridge. It had beautiful views from the top, and we're still getting used to all of the Evergreens around this part of the country!

A perfect way to end the weekend was firing up the grill and making some turkey burgers.
