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.

Snickers Ice Cream Pie

Snickers Ice Cream Pie 2

As promised in my Birthday Dinner post here is the Snickers Ice Cream Pie recipe, I couldn't make you wait too long for it!

I can't seem to be able to capture a good picture of birthday cakes, I struggled on this one and the Chocolate Birthday Cake. The taste definitely makes up for the photography though, I promise. What's great about this Snickers Ice Cream Pie is that it's versatile, you can substitute any type of candy bar for the Snickers. With Halloween right around the corner, it would be a great way to use up some candy you steal from your kids. 

I recommend making this ahead of time if possible, to leave enough time to freeze the two different layers of ice cream.

Ingrediets
For the Crust
20-24 chocolate cookies, processed into crumbs (I used Oreos)
1/3 cup melted butter
For the Cake
1 cup chocolate ice cream
3 cups vanilla ice cream
14-18 mini Snickers bars
caramel sauce, for drizzling

Directions
Combine chocolate cookie crumbs and melted butter, and press into pie plate. I use the bottom of a measuring cup to press it in evenly. Let sit for about an hour.

Spread softened chocolate ice cream for bottom layer of ice cream cake, freeze for 1-2 hours. Break up mini Snickers bars into small pieces (I used my food processor), and soften vanila ice cream. Mix snickers pieces into vanilla ice cream (this is when you feel like you're working at Coldstone or Maggie Moo's!) and then spread over layer of chocolate ice cream. Let freeze for another 2 hours, drizzle caramel sauce on top, and let freeze until ready to serve. I let the pie sit outside of the freezer a bit before cutting, but that was unnecesarry, it got a little too melted and you can serve it directly from the freezer.
