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.

Prosciutto, Brie, & Fig Panini

I know I just posted a panini recipe, so please forgive me for the repetition. My excuse is I wanted to finish up sharing how I used the rest of the fig paste from my fig crumbles. It was another panini and another very satisfying lunch. This time I used prosciutto, brie cheese, and fig paste. There's no need for me to even write up a recipe. It's that simple and that good. Just throw the three ingredients onto some sliced french bread and put it in your panini grill. Once again if you don't have a panini press, you can put it on a grill pan or regular stove top pan and press down with a spatula or lid.

We went to the shore again this weekend, and enjoyed some gorgeous weather. We also made another stop at the fish market so expect some more seafood recipes this week.


Chicken, Fig & Blue Cheese Panini

I love my panini maker, I'd say it's one of the wedding gifts we have gotten the most use out of. It's great for making sandwiches a little more exciting, it makes them taste better, trust me.   In my quest to use up the fig paste I still had from these fig crumbles, I made a chicken, fig, and blue cheese panini, and it was a great combination.  The blue cheese really complements the sweet fig paste. Keep reading for the recipe.

Firecracker Shrimp Salad



I made this salad using The Pioneer Woman's Firecracker Shrimp, which is delicious on its own as well as in this salad, and is so so easy to make. I agree with her that Sriracha is the best hot sauce choice, so definitely use that when making this recipe.  I don't skewer the shrimp before putting them on my grill pan, call me lazy.


I love shrimp, of course fresh is the best, but I stock up on frozen uncooked shrimp as it thaws and cooks up quickly, which is perfect for weeknight dinners.

For this salad I used fresh shrimp that I picked up on sale at the store and tossed it with mixed greens,  avocado, corn, grape tomatoes, cucumbers, black beans, and onions.  I threw on a little ranch dressing as it helped balance the very spicy shrimp (because I always use extra Sriracha).  I'll be making this again, very soon.


Southwest Chicken Burgers

I have the grinding attachment for my mixer, and I love it when I find the time to actually use it to grind up some meat.  I enjoy playing with combinations of different cuts and combinations. I also like knowing that it gives me control of the quality and cut going into my meatball or burger, rather than just buying a package of ground meat.  This is probably more so for beef than chicken like I ground (I want to say grinded, but Google  tells me it's not actually a real word) up this past weekend, but I had fun with it and made a juicy and delicious chicken burger that was well worth the grinding.


I ground up some chicken thighs and breasts for my burgers, to have a combination of light and dark meat, and added in some chipotle peppers and other spices to come up with my Southwest Chicken Burgers.  I served them with Healthy Crunchy Onion Rings from How Sweet It Is.  Keep reading for the burger recipe, which makes about 6-8 burgers depending on what size patties you prefer.

Maine Lobster Rolls & Grilled Sweet Potatoes

Lobster tails were on sale at the grocery store so I decided to make some lobster rolls.  The recipe comes from this Dishing Up Maine cookbook that I bought when we visited Maine.  It had a little too much mayonnaise for my taste, but still tasted delicious.  My husband could eat mayonnaise out of a jar so he of course loved it.  The recipe is below.  On a side note, I ate a lot of lobster and lobster rolls in Maine, but my favorite is the lobster roll at Neptune Oyster Bar in Boston.

2 cups cooked lobster, cut into chunks
2 teaspoons of lemon juice (about 1/4-1/2 lemon)
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
Salt and fresh ground pepper
Top-split hot dog buns (regular works fine too)
Snipped chives

1. Toss the lobster with lemon juice and mayonnaise, season with salt and pepper to taste
2. Toast hot dog rolls
3. Spoon lobster onto rolls and enjoy!

I served grilled Grilled Sweet Potatoes with Scallions from Martha Stewart's Everyday Food Magazine on the side.  I live in an apartment so I don't have a grill, I use my double burner grill pan instead and it works perfectly.  This is one of my favorite side dishes to serve and eat.
