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.

Slow Cooker Carnitas


A slow cooker is a must for any busy cook. You can't beat throwing some ingredients into a slow cooker before heading to work, and coming home to a great smelling apartment and dinner ready. I tend to use mine more in the fall and winter, but really it would be a good way to avoid spending time in the hot kitchen in the summer. I had some pork butt in the freezer so I decided to make carnitas, as it would be a great way to use up some of my tomatillo salsa that I made last week. By the way, the pork butt does not actually come from the pigs rear end, it's part of the shoulder. This is also another one of those dishes that doesn't photograph nearly as well as it tastes, the recipe is below.

Smoky Slow Cooker Chili



I'm on a quest to find a really good chili recipe, this Smoky Slow Cooker Chili was a step in the right direction.  I did most of the prep the night before, and then put everything in the slow cooker before heading to work.  I followed the recipe for the most part; I did add some chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, cayenne pepper, more chili powder, and used brown sugar instead of regular.  Our first serving we forgot to add the lime, but don't worry we had seconds and remembered the lime, which added a really nice touch.  Next time I will add more beans, I'm debating whether it's more pinto or if I should add kidney beans or black beans.
