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.

Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cookies

Lemon Blueberry Breakfast Cookies 2

If you don't follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you may not know that we recently bought our first house! After moving to Seattle a little over a year ago, we can officially call Seattle home. We moved to Ballard and I am loving being in walking distance to the Sunday Farmer's Market in Ballard.

Sunday at the market.  #ballard #seattle

I'll be posting more about the house along the way, it was pretty much move in ready but we do have some painting to do. After renting apartments for the past 8 years where I could not paint walls, it's a pretty overwhelming task. So far my train of thought is picking paints based on foods, like Celery Salt, because I like it in my Bloody Mary's

One of my favorite things about our new home is

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap: Chewy Pumpkin, Caramel & Chocolate Cookies

Chewy Pumpkin, Caramel & Chocolate Cookies

I participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap again this year! It was just what I needed to break up the craziness at work and a packed social calendar. It provided a relaxing Sunday where I forced myself to bake cookies and devour the 3 dozen that were sent to me...just kidding, I shared! And when the cookies were all gone, I just went back to the eggnog...

Chewy Pumpkin, Caramel & Chocolate Cookies 2

I made Chewy Pumpkin, Caramel & Chocolate cookies, they were a loose version of these Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies and a fairly messy, but tasty experiment. Caramel is sticky. I've upated the recipe so it's easier to execute next time. When I made these I mixed the rolos into the batter, but my recommendation

Funfetti Cookie Cake

Funfetti Cookie Cake

 

Two desserts in a row for you guys, this time I decided to mix it up from my usual Chocolate & Peanut Butter Chip Cookie Cake and attempted a Funfetti Cookie Cake. Good news, it was a success. Cookie Cakes are perfect, everyone always seems to love them and they are ridiculously easy to make.

The occasion was that our good friends from New Jersey, Amanda & Pat, were visiting and it was right around Amanda's birthday. The perfect excuse to make a cookie cake. Happy Birthday Amanda!

This Funfetti Cookie Cake was delicious and I'll definitely be adding it into my cookie cake rotation. Thanks to Julia over at Fat Girl Trapped in a Skinny Body, I used her Funfetti Cookie recipe to make this giant cookie.

A Valentine's Day Treat: Frosted Sugar Cookies

Frosted Sugar Cookies

I'm going to be honest, Valentine's Day is totally not my thing. But cookies are, especially my mom's frosted sugar cookies. I don't even want to know the number of cookies my mom has made and frosted in her lifetime, but it's A LOT and they have been in all sorts of shapes. They also mail well, my mom has thoroughly tested that out. We're actually only moving to Seattle so we're a part of the holiday goody package mailing circuit.  

I'm warning you now, these guys are addicting. The recipe is below and comes from my mom's old Betty Crocker cookbook.

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap: Salty Sweet Cookies

Salty Sweet Cookies

In the past few weeks over 22,000 cookies were sent around the world as part of the inaugural Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, and I had a wonderful time being a part of this gigantic cookie exchange! It gave me the opportunity to try out a new cookie recipe (and taste test of course), receive 3 dozen cookies in the mail (I shared), get introduced to some great food blogs and bloggers and have my jeans fit a bit tighter. 

I made Salty Sweet Cookies with cashews, butterscotch chips and dark chocolate chips, topped with sea salt. I was pretty happy with the outcome and glad I had commited to signing up to mail out these cookies, it would not have been pretty if I had all 50+ cookies the recipe made to myself. I sent a dozen to each of my recipients, Munching in the Mitten, Girly Obsessions and Ma Vie en Rose and they all seemed to enjoy the cookies as well!

In exchange I received a dozen cookies from 3 different bloggers, and lucky me I recieved 3 delicious batches! I had to force myself to share them with my neighbors. Tina from My Life As A Mrs sent me some decadent frosted sugar cookies, Amber from Caleigh's Kitchen sent red velvet cookies with white chocolate chips - have I mentioned I'm a sucker for red velvet? And Alan from Cooke'd With Luv sent me some amazing Chocolate Chip cookies! You should go checkout their blogs.

A huge thank you to Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil and Julie from The Litle Kitchen for organizing the cookie swap and I can't wait for next year!

Keep reading for the recipe that was adapted from a Better Homes & Gardens magazine.
