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.

Banana, Peach and Granola Smoothie

Banana, Peach & Granola Smoothie #breakfast

As someone who has never liked milk, I've been making a lot of smoothies to get myself some more calcium, and to add more fruit to my diet. This recipe is definitely a base, I am always mixing up the fruit I use, with both a combo of fresh fruit from the local market and frozen fruit that I pick up at Trader Joe's. I like using frozen fruit to help thicken up the smoothie. 

Not only did I enjoy this smoothie, but it was a hit with Mr. KMW...while he is not always down with smoothies for breakfast...he wasn't letting any last drop of this one go to waste.


I think @598hertan was a fan of this morning's smoothie concoction

Other smoothies I have been enjoying are my Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie, Green Monster Smoothie and Strawberry Green Tea Smoothie.

See below for the recipe, adjust the milk or other ingredients to get the smoothie to the texture you like.

Green Monster Smoothie

Green Monster Smoothie


I know, I'm a little late to the Green Monster Smoothie bandwagon, but I am now officially onboard. I'm sure many of you know about the Green Monster Smoothie, but for those of you that don't it's essentialy a smoothie with some Kale or Spinach leaves thrown in. 

I've now served this twice to Mr. KMW and both times he asked with skepticisim 'you put green stuff in there?' Both time he took his first sip and said mmmm. You do not taste the 'green stuff', you just get the benefit of all of their nutrients! 

I'm not going to type up a recipe as there are a ton out there, but you could use my Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie or my Strawberry Green Tea Smoothie and just add 1 to 2 handfulls of Kale or 2 handfulls of baby spinach into the mixer with the other ingredients. Really, that's all there is to it! I've been adding it to the Peanut Butter Banana Smoothie.

Greek Cucumber Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites

Cucumber Feta Bites make for a healthy, easy and tasty appetizer. Can't beat that, can you?!

I made them for the Super Bowl, but they would work well for the holidays or any gathering really, they make for great finger food. They're also an easy appetizer to bring to a party, because they don't have to be heated up.

I'm always looking for healthier appetizer options so when I saw Katie's Cucumber Feta Rolls over at Good Life Eats they definitely jumped out at me. I ended up making bites instead of rolls since they would be easier to slice up and I also wouldn't have to deal with toothpicks. You know me, I'm always looking for

Avocado Toast with Tomato

Avocado Toast with Tomato

I love avocados, and based on all of the visits and love I have received on this Avocado Chicken Salad post, you guys do too. I'm really glad we could find that common ground, I really see us having a future together.

This is a simple recipe that works for a healthy breakfast, lunch, a snack or even a light dinner. You could also leave the cheese off to make it even healthier. I had some pepper jack cheese on hand though and couldn't resist! I'm a sucker for cheese, especially if it adds some spice.

Here's the recipe for 1 toast, but I'm warning you know, you will most likely want to make more than 1!

Nutella & Mascarpone Crostini

Nutella & Mascarpone Crostini

Make this now and thank me later! I went to dinner at Dozzino's in Hoboken a couple of months ago and we ordered these Nutella & Mascarpone Crostini's for dessert. I haven't stopped thinking about them since so I decided to put the Nutella I had from the Nutella Swirl Blondies to use. Make them this weekend for the games, make them for your holiday parties or just make them at home alone so you don't have to share with anyone.  They are so easy and if you decide to share everyone will be impressed! Adjust the quantity based on how many you want to make and adjust the ratio of mascarpone to nutella based on your taste preferences.

1-1/2 cups mascarpone
3/4 cup nutella
1 baguette, sliced 

Preheat broiler (this will only take a couple of minutes). Place bread on baking sheet and place under broiler for 1-2 minutes on each side. Keep an eye on it as it will toast the bread quickly.

Stir together mascarpone and nutella. Try a spoonful, you know, just to make sure it tastes okay. Place a dollop of mascarpone and nutella mixture on toasted baguette.
