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.

Chicken and Summer Vegetable Tostadas & Guacamole



I saw this recipe from Cooking Light and I've had my eye on it for awhile.  I decided not to wait until the summer vegetables were actually ready, so I used a can of corn instead of fresh corn off the cob.  I also used pepper jack cheese in lieu of monterey jack cheese to add a little extra flavor, and as you can see in the picture I probably could have used less cheese.  A lot of the reviews said that the bottom of the tostadas were soggy, so to prevent that I broiled both sides of the tortilla and there were no issues with sogginess.  When I re-heat the leftovers I'm going to add a little tabasco to the chicken and vegetable mixture to add a little spice.  I can't wait to try this one again when summer vegetables are fresh at the farmer's market.
I love my molcajete, it's a completely unnecessary but fun addition to my kitchen.  I make pretty standard guacamole; 2 avocadoes, a handful or two of chopped tomatoes, a handful of chopped onions, 1 chopped jalapeño, some cilantro, and kosher salt.  This Molcajete link on Williams-Sonoma has a helpful video of how to whip up some guacamole with the mortar and pestle.  I've also decided that it's impossible to get an appetizing picture of guacamole.
