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.

Bacon Wrapped Chili Lime Shrimp

Bacon Wrapped Chili Lime Shrimp

I'm a little behind on posts so you're going to see some recipes that were taste tested at my Super Bowl party popping up the next couple of weeks. Good news is, you can eat dips and appetizers anytime of the year!

I'm generally a dip fanatic, but these shrimp brought some competition to the table. They were a pop of flavor in my mouth! I can't wait to make some for myself...when I'm home alone...and don't have to share them with a dozen people.

Chef Andi brought the shrimp to the party, and can we talk about her plating skills? I need to invite her over more often, just to make my food look prettier for you all! Oh, and know what else she brought?

Smoked Salmon Chowder

Smoked Salmon Chowder 2

As promised in my Fried Leek post, the recipe for the Smoked Salmon Chowder we had on Christmas Eve. The chowder alone made it a Christmas Eve to remember, and this may have to become our traditional Christmas Eve dinner. This was a super easy recipe, and it will definitely get made on other nights of the year. You know how we loved smoked salmon in our house, and this was absolutely delicious. I had to restrain Mr. KMW from helping himself to a fifth bowl.

It was a creamy base with tomato flavor, making it a New England type of chowder, with a touch of Manhattan. And I, of course, topped it with Fried Leeks, a great garnish for any soup.

Grab yourself some smoked salmon and make this chowder, you will have no regrets!

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.

Aaron's Grilled Paella

A couple of weeks ago, my family got together in California to surprise my Mom for her birthday, it was the big 6-0 so we wanted to do something special! With all of us living in opposite corners of the US (Seattle, LA, Charlotte & NJ), my mom doesn't have her grandkids and kids all together very often. Needles to say, both my Mom and Dad were very surprised to see us all show up in California.

We had fun enjoying the sunny weather, getting in some family time,


watching my nephews show off their soccer skills,


 and enjoying the food. The food highlight was my brother grilling up some absolutely amazing paella.

Spaghetti Squash with Scallops in Cream Sauce

Scallops & Spaghetti Squash with Cream Sauce

Okay, so this isn't the prettiest photo on KMW, but look beyond the picture to the rich, creamy sauce on top of this Spaghetti Squash and Scallops. 

Spaghetti Squash will never taste exactly like pasta, but I definitely enjoy it as a substitute to reduce carbs. Not to mention, I'm a squash lover. This made for a great dinner the first night I made it, but I'd say the leftovers were even better. It gave the squash a little bit of time to soak up more sauce. 

If you opt to cook the squash in the microwave (which I did), this makes for a great weeknight dinner, since scallops cook so quickly. You also have the option to
