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.

Pasta With Mascarpone, Chicken, Sun Dried Tomatoes & Spinach

I thawed some chicken and was in the mood for pasta; this recipe from Italian Food Forever hit the spot. I used some whole wheat pasta shells I had on hand and otherwise followed the recipe.  It got a 'will you please make this again' response from my husband who claims he doesn't like sun dried tomatoes.


Lasagna Rolls

Giada's Lasagna Rolls were tasty and a nice spin on regular lasagna.  I added extra prosciutto and mushrooms because I wanted to use up the ones I had on hand.   You could really throw anything in the lasagna rolls; sausage, ground meat, eggplant, more spinach, etc.  Timing wise, the recipe instructions were not laid out that great (which I would have realized if I read it ahead of time).  I'd start the lasagna water boiling, then make the ricotta mixture, throw in the lasagna, and then make the bechamel sauce.  

I served it with a side of cucumber-tomato salad and a bottle of Grande Fleur De Lyeth Reserve (a blend of Cabernet, Merlot, and Petit Syrah).  The wine was good, nothing great.


Shrimp Scampi Pasta



Shrimp Scampi Pasta from Epicurious, a great Friday night dinner after a long week; lots of oil, lots of butter, and quick.  I usually like to add halved cherry or grape tomatoes to the recipe but I didn't have any on hand, and whose going to the store on a Friday night?  So I threw in some frozen green beans due to lack of options, and the feeling that I needed some veggies to offset the oil and butter.  I also upped the crushed red pepper, because I can never get enough.  Once again, this recipe got rave reviews from my husband (I really enjoyed it too).
