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?

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,

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

Shrimp & Black Bean Taco Bowl

Shrimp & Black Bean Taco Bowl

Call me weird, but I don't even like Corona. What I can get behind is Corona Light as a light beer option, especially when it's served with this Spicy Shrimp Bowl. I won't put Corona Light on the ingredient list, but I recommend buying it to balance out the spice and to make you feel like you're on vacation on a random Wednesday night...even though you have to go to work in the morning. I know I write run on sentences, I was a better Math student.

I was in the mood for shrimp. Shrimp's a good go to weeknight dinner base, it cooks up quick and it's packed with protein. You can of course substitute ground beef or sliced chicken breast (just make sure time wise you cook them accordingly) if that's what you have on hand or shrimp is just not your thing.

Chipotle Shrimp, Pineapple & Feta Flatbread

Chipotle Shrimp, Pineapple & Feta Flatbread

As promised in my Chipotle Shrimp post, I threw some of that tasty shrimp onto some Lavash Flatbread with poblano pepper, pineapple and feta and let the magic happen. The unseasonably warm weather we were having in Seattle inspired me to buy some pineapple and get inspired with some summer flavors. 

Other than Mr. KMW peer pressuring me to keep adding more and more feta cheese (unnecessary since feta has such a strong flavor-I adjusted the recipe to account for that), this is light and healthy...on top of being a great combination of flavors. The spicy shrimp and peppers balance very nicely with the sweet pineapple and tangy feta. 

Oh and this Lavash Flatbread that I picked up at Trader Joe's...it's my new obsession, I'm warning you now. Lavash does dry out and become brittle quickly though, so I
