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.

Stacked Tomato, Onion, and Corn Salad

It's that time of year when I can always find fresh tomatoes and sweet corn the cob at the farmers market. They both taste great on their own, but you'll see me cutting the corn off of the cob and throwing it in a lot of dishes this summer. Tonight I decided to make this simple and refreshing stacked tomato and onion salad that allows you to enjoy the flavors of both.

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.

Corn and Tomato Scramble

 

 

This corn and tomato scramble from Epicurious is one of my favorite side dishes, especially when I can find some fresh corn on the cob (which I didn't this time, but it's still tasty).  The only changes I make to this are using balsamic vinegar instead of cider vinegar, I also try to use about a 1/2 to 2/3 of the butter it recommends, and sometimes I throw in avocados.  As soon as you can find corn on the cob at your market, do yourself a favor and make this.

Blackened Steak Salad




My Grandpa always gives us Omaha Steaks for Christmas, so I decided to make this Blackened Steak Salad tonight with some tenderloins we had in the freezer.  You've probably already noticed that we're fans of red meat so Grandpa's gift gets pretty good use.  This recipe from Epicurious was an excellent use of the steak, I will definitely be making this again.  The rub on the steak combined with the salad dressing was perfect.  The only changes I made were adding sautéed mushrooms and extra tomatoes, next time I'll add more sautéed mushrooms.   You probably don't need as much blue cheese as my husband added, but he cleans the dishes so I keep quiet.  We had some DeLoach Zinfandel with our meal, which we also enjoyed.
