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.

Penne Vodka with Salmon

Penne Vodka with Salmon

My Grandpa was visiting a couple of weeks ago and was able to score us salmon from family he has in the area. I mean we've had a lot of salmon since we've moved here, but I haven't been second degree away from the person who actually caught the fish....I was pumped!

This was right around the time Emily over at Culinary Style posted a recipe for Salmon Pasta with Vodka Cream Sauce that had me drooling. Not to mention, Penne Vodka is one of Mr. KMW's go to dishes when we go out for Italian, and we've been slacking with trying Italian restaurants here in Seattle. I've heard and read about some excellent Italian restaurants in Seattle restaurants, but I have a fear of disappointment after being spoiled with the amazing Italian food NYC and NJ has to offer. I have the same issue with bagels.

Tortellini Primavera

Tortellini Primavera

Another pasta dish for you guys! I usually keep the pre-made tortellini (the one found in the refrigerated section of the store) on hand in my freezer, it thaws quick and it's a good base for a lot of quick and easy dinners...this one included. 

I used some summer squash and red pepper that I wanted to use up in my fridge, but mix up the veggies based on what's in your CSA that week or what you need to use up.

I threw this together last minute with ingredients I had on hand and it turned out great. I'll be adding

Garlic and Olive Oil Pasta with Veggies

Garlic & Olive Oil Pasta with Veggies

Pasta, Summer Corn, Tomatoes, Red Peppers, Spinach and Jalapeno Chicken Sausage swimming in olive oil and garlic...lets just say it was verrrrrry difficult for the two of us not to devour this entire vat of pasta in one sitting. 

Our restraint was rewarded with a delicious lunch and our cubicles wafting of garlic the next day. Mr. KMW made the request that next time I make this pasta I do it at the beginning of the week so he can bring it in for lunch all week long...not a bad plan.

The Jalapeno Sausage was just an after thought...a tasty after thought, but this recipe would definitely work great with just veggies. Feel free to mix up the vegetables based on what's in season or what you have on hand. Between the whole grain pasta and the veggies, let's

Serrano Spinach Macaroni & Cheese

Serrano Spinach Mac & Cheese


I have a dish that will be a great addition to your 4th of July BBQ...or if you are just craving some comfort food. I went to a BBQ at my coworkers a couple of weekends ago and I got the request for some more spicy mac and cheese. I wanted to go with something a little more mild than the Habanero Mac & Cheese, but still had a kick and got inspired by this Serrano Creamed Spinach. That way Mr. KMW could eat it this time around!

Have I mentioned that I can't get enough Mac & Cheese in my life? Because I can't, love that stuff. This version included

Habanero Mac & Cheese

Macaroni & Cheese 2


I LOVE macaroni and cheese. Whether traditional, butternut squash, buffalo, broccoli, lobster...the list could go on. I even created a Mac & Cheese Heaven board over on Pinterest.

Doesn't everyone love mac & cheese? At least everyone with a pulse.

As soon as I tasted Zane & Zack's Habanero Cream Cheese (the source of the heat), I knew I would be making macaroni and cheese with it. For those of you that are local, I bought it at the Ballard Farmer's Market...love that place.

Macaroni & Cheese


This Habanero version was creamy and cheesy and full of mac and cheese goodness, but it is definitely for those who can handle the heat. I'm toning down the amount of Habanero Cream Cheese in the recipe post, because what I actually used was just way too hot for some palates. There was no way Mr. KMW was touching that stuff, so I brought it into my office and it went quick! For those that can handle LOTS of heat feel free to increase to the full 8 ounces. And if you're looking to make friends at work, feel free to bring in a pan of mac and cheese.
