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.

Poached Eggs


I love poached eggs, but I've always been a bit intimidated to try to make them on my own.  The Easter Bunny was nice enough to give me these egg poachers from Crate and Barrel in my Easter basket, so I figured I should give it a whirl.  Below you can see how to poach an egg, or at least how I did it.

1. Bring salted water to its almost boiling point.
2. While water is heating up, crack egg into a bowl or ramekin
3. Hang the egg poacher on the side of a pot.
4. When water is almost at it's boiling point, place egg in the egg poacher
5. Keep water just below its boiling point, and cook for about 4 minutes (longer if you do not want a runny yolk).

I cooked some spinach leaves with a little pepper and pecorino romano cheese, placed it on toast, and then put the poached egg on top.  It was a good way to start the day!
