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.

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.

Butternut Squash Risotto with Maple Soy Glazed Salmon

I know, it has been FOREVER. I've been really busy at work and we've had a lot of visitors in October. Both mine and Mr. KMW's coworkers have questioned if we're running a bed and breakfast on the side, we're not...we just love having our friends and family visit. 

I'm going to make it up to you by posting a very yummy recipe....Creamy Butternut Squash Risotto with a flavor filled Maple Soy Glazed Salmon on top. Fall deliciousness. 

Butternut Squash Risotto with Maple Soy Glazed Salmon

Before I get to the food here's a little more detail of what we've been up to the past few weeks. 

My cousin from Missouri made a pit stop in Seattle as part of a longer trip, and we spent a rainy night watching the Sounders soccer game. Sounders games have such a fun atmosphere, we often try to fit a game in when visitors are in town.




Our friend Cole visited and we hiked up to Lake Serene. It was, well...serene, one of the prettiest hikes we've been on since moving out to Seattle.

Butternut Squash Hash Browns

Butternut Squash Hash Browns

You know we love our Butternut Squash around here. We usually go through one squash a week, and this time around I decided to make it for breakfast. If you're a butternut squash fan, KMW is the place for you.

I also put one of my latest favorite kitchen gadgets to use, the shredding disc on my food processor. I love that thing. Oh, I need to shred this block of cheese? 20 seconds and done. Shredded the heck out of some potatoes for this Bacon, Egg & Cheese Hash Brown Skillet. It can help you make coleslaw in no time at all. I'm a shredding machine lately, well I guess my food processor is more the shredding machine...you get it.

So get out your shredding attachment, shred up some butternut squash and make yourself some hash browns!

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

Roasted Butternut Squash & Pear Soup

Roasted Butternut Squash and Pear Soup

One of my coworkers brought in a TON of pears and apples from his parents farm in Eastern Washington on Friday...needless to say I've been baking and cooking with them all weekend. So that's your warning, you are going to see a streak of apple and pear recipes. 

Now onto this soup, it cooled down today so I was in the mood for soup and decided to make a spin on my Butternut Squash & Shallot Soup. This time I roasted some pears and onions along with the squash and added in some fun garnishes; pepitas, gorgonzola crumbles and fried sage. That's right, fried sage.

The result, Mr. KMW taking a bite and accusing me of being insane because the soup was so amazing. Yup, my carnivorous husband loved this vegetable and fruit soup. He also declared
