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, Fig & Blue Cheese Panini


I love my panini maker, I'd say it's one of the wedding gifts we have gotten the most use out of. It's great for making sandwiches a little more exciting, it makes them taste better, trust me.   In my quest to use up the fig paste I still had from these fig crumbles, I made a chicken, fig, and blue cheese panini, and it was a great combination.  The blue cheese really complements the sweet fig paste. Keep reading for the recipe.


French Bread (you could use ciabatta or any harder roll). sliced lengthwise
Chicken Cutlets or Chicken Breast
Blue Cheese
Fig Paste or Jam
Mixed Greens
Season chicken cutlets with salt and pepper and cook. I cooked mine on a grill pan, for about 4 minutes on each side (until they were cooked through). Slice chicken and assemble chicken, blue cheese, mixed greens on bottom half of bread. Spread fig paste on top half  of bread and place on the assembled bottom.  Place it in the panini press and heat through about 4 to 5 minutes. If you don't have a panini press you could heat it in a stove stop pan or grill pan, and use a lid or spatula to press down.
