The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

Cedar Planked Salmon with Cayenne Lime Butter

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.

Creamy Hungarian Mushroom Soup

Creamy Hungarian Mushroom Soup

I'm generally not a New Years resolution type of person, but the past couple of years I've tried to set some goals for myself. This year I have a couple of food related goals.

The first one is to cook out of all of my cookbooks. I have a cookbook obsession, and where I love flipping through them, I'm not great at actually making meals with them. The second one is to do a little bit better job of meal planning now that I'm back at work, and have pretty much figured out the daycare drop off, go to work, daycare pick up, come home and wash and prep a million bottles routine (boy am I regretting Dr. Browns...SO MANY PARTS!). My main goal is to cook 2-3 dinners a week, that will last us most of the week, and make some lunches. My approach is to make a big pot of something on Sunday; Stew, Soup, Short Ribs, Ragu, etc., a slow cooker meal and one quick and easy weeknight dinner. Last weeks meal plan is below. I also made chicken salad for sandwiches during the week, lets just say when the Seahawks aren't on, I have a much more productive weekend.

Sunday - Creamy Hungarian Mushroom Soup from my Moosewood Restaurant Favorites Cookbook
Monday - Leftover Soup
Tuesday - Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Tacos
Wednesday - Leftover Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken, this time in Taco/Burrito Bowl form 
Thursday - My Grandpa sent us an Omaha Steak Package for Christmas so we tapped into that
Friday - Dinner out on the town!

I don't have a goal to blog more, if it happens it happens and if it doesn't, it doesn't. I've always told myself that I would just blog how ever frequent or infrequent I want to...it's for fun. Maybe I'll try to keep you up to date on my meal planning and share recipes I'm trying.

So this soup, it starts with creamy so it has to be good.

Spicy Chicken Sausage, Butternut Squash & Kale Stew

Chicken Sausage, Butternut Squash & Kale Stew

I really didn't know what to call this soup...or stew.

I started out with the idea of a Butternut Squash Minestrone, then quickly realized I used all my chicken broth up with this Butternut Squash Risotto and did not have any elbow macaroni. So to the pantry I went!

Luckily I had a ginormous squash for the risotto, so there was plenty of that left. I used crushed tomatoes, milk and half and half to result in a delicious, creamy stew broth. Add in potatoes, butternut squash, spicy chicken sausage and kale and you have a soup that's as colorful as fall foliage and is bursting with flavor. 

One other result, you fight over who gets to bring the leftovers for lunch. Luckily, I dominate at thumb wars.

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

Slow Cooker Chicken Enchilada Soup

All of you slow cooker fans are going to love this recipe.

It's one of those dump, set, and 6 hours later dinner is ready recipes! You really can't get easier than this and it's pretty minimal on the ingredients side. It's similar to Holly's Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken, which is a popular recipe around these parts...and by these parts I mean with KMW readers. 

I really don't have much more to say about this, just an easy and flavorful recipe that is perfect for the busy cook! The directions portion of the recipe is 2 sentences, enough said.

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!

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, French Onion Style

Roasted Tomato Basil Soup, French Onion Style

You guys are going to love me for this recipe, I'm still having dreams about it. I took a simple Tomato Basil Soup and melted cheese on top so it got on bubbly and browned, we all know that's the best part of French Onion Soup!

This was another inspiration of my new Blendtec. Blending up vegetable soups in the fall is one of my go to dinner options. See my Butternut Squash & Shallot Soup, Broccoli and Cheese Soup, Moroccan Carrrot Soup and my more recent Butternut Squash and Pear Soup. As you can tell, I also love Butternut Squash in the fall...or anytime of year for that matter. 

When making these soups, I usually try to
