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.

Butternut Squash Risotto with Maple Soy Glazed Salmon

I know, it has been FOREVER. I've been really busy at work and we've had a lot of visitors in October. Both mine and Mr. KMW's coworkers have questioned if we're running a bed and breakfast on the side, we're not...we just love having our friends and family visit. 

I'm going to make it up to you by posting a very yummy recipe....Creamy Butternut Squash Risotto with a flavor filled Maple Soy Glazed Salmon on top. Fall deliciousness.

Before I get to the food here's a little more detail of what we've been up to the past few weeks. 

My cousin from Missouri made a pit stop in Seattle as part of a longer trip, and we spent a rainy night watching the Sounders soccer game. Sounders games have such a fun atmosphere, we often try to fit a game in when visitors are in town.

Our friend Cole visited and we hiked up to Lake Serene. It was, well...serene, one of the prettiest hikes we've been on since moving out to Seattle.

Grilled Salmon Panzanella

I just got back from a whirlwind trip to the East Coast, and it started a little something like this. I arrive at the airport last Tuesday night to take the redeye to Charlotte and the following conversation happens.

'Mam, the computer is not working and I cannot check in' - Me


'Hmm, that's odd, what is your name?' - Lady at the Airline Desk

 I provide her my name, she can't find it.

'I have my confirmation number' - Me

I proceed to give her my confirmation number

'Your flight is on the 18th' - Lady at the Airline Desk

'Yes, the 18th, that's it, for some reason I can't pull it up' - Me

'The 18th is tomorrow' - Lady at the Airline Desk

I put my head down, walk away and Mr. KMW comes back to pick me up and I tried again the next night...thankfully with success the second time around.

After that little hiccup, I arrived in the Carolinas, met my new nephew and let my niece show off what a loving big sister she is,

and then headed up to NJ to surprise my best friend for her 30th birthday, whose due next month...doesn't she look fantastic?

We had a pretty relaxing weekend with good food, massages and bagels. I refuse to make a trip back to NJ without eating a bagel. 

I arrived back to Seattle Sunday in time to pretend it is still summer, and make Grilled Salmon Panzanella.

Hazelnut Pesto Pasta with Salmon

Hazelnut Pesto Pasta with Salmon

Today I had one of those evenings that really emphasized why I love Summer in Seattle. I came home from work, stopped at the grocery store, went for a a run where I caught glimpses of the Olympic Mountains over the Puget Sound, had a glass of wine, made dinner and it was still daylight out! 

Something else to love about Summer is that it's Copper River Salmon season and thanks to the folks over at Copper River Wild I have salmon coming out of my ears these days. And you know how we love salmon at our house! 

We also love pasta, especially this Hazelnut Pesto Pasta. Not only was it absolutely delicious, but you can't beat how pretty and colorful it is!

Cedar Planked Salmon with Cayenne Lime Butter

Copper River Salmon Cedar Planked

Remember when I told you how Copper River Salmon gets the red carpet treatment when it arrives here in Seattle? Well, the folks over at Copper River Salmon were nice enough to send me some Sockeye Salmon. And since copper river salmon tastes like butter, I was pretty darn excited!

This salmon is so delicious on it's own, so I knew I would be doing something pretty simple. I decided to cedar plank the salmon on the grill, and drizzle it with some cayenne lime butter. We've had a ton of visitors since we've moved to Seattle, and cedar planking salmon is a go to dish to show them a taste of Seattle on their visit.  The Cayenne Lime Butter was an added twist, and one I'll be using again. On salmon, on veggies, on steak, and guzzling straight up.

Copper River Salmon Lands in Seattle

IMG_9256

That's right, it literally lands in Seattle, jetted in from Cordova on an Alaska Airlines plane. Friday morning, I was up bright and early to participate in this Seattle Springtime right of passage. With the kick off of the Copper River Salmon Season, media and celebrity chefs head out to SeaTac Airport to give the first fish that arrive to Seattle the red carpet treatment. Once it arrives, we all celebrate with a celebrity chef cook off, and eating salmon for breakfast. 

Before we got to the cooking, I was in awe watching this man filet the salmon. It was impressive.

Sure, I'll have a fresh piece...it tasted like butter in my mouth.

Look at how beautiful that salmon is!

After drooling over the raw fish, the chefs got to cooking. I of course had fun just watching the chefs do their thang, although tasting was a nice perk as well. I wasn't the only one who was happy to be having Salmon fro breakfast.

Judges, Mike Fourtner (from Deadliest Catch) and Jay Buhner (Mariners Hall of Famer) seemed to be having a really good time as well.

And the winner...
