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.

S'mores Dip

Untitled

This photo got a lot of love when I posted it on Instagram. I knew I couldn't be selfish and keep it to myself so here I am posting it for you all. 

Not only is it as delicious as it sounds and looks, but it is so darn easy! It literally takes about 10 to 15 minutes from start to finish. And probably took us even less time to devour (by probably I mean definitely). It's a perfect sized dessert for 2-4 people (although I could see myself justifying one) and could easily be scaled to a bigger size to feed a crowd. I can't think of an easier dessert for a party, and this would be an absolute hit.

This version is graham crackers dipped in straight up chocolate and marshmallows, but I also plan to try the following variations. Let me know what your ideas are!

Buffalo Chicken Dip

Buffalo Chicken Dip

March is here! You know what that means? Tis the season for College Basketball...Rock Chalk Jayhawk! This Buffalo Chicken Dip will be perfect for your March Madness party. 

Warning: This creamy, buffalo goodness is addicting and I'd recommend whipping out your stretchy pants for consumption. Also, send all leftovers home with guests, or you may find yourself snacking on it before dinner, after dinner and for breakfast.

Chef Keck brought this to our Super Bowl Party, and let's just say the popular seats were directly around this vat of dip. It is perfect for a crowd...delicious and easy to whip together.

Pizza Hummus

Pizza Hummus

I had my 12 Beers of Christmas taste testing this weekend, and on top of all of the unhealthy appetizers I was trying to brainstorm something a little more healthy for the spread. Veggies and hummus is always a good option, but I wanted to get a little bit creative with the type of hummus. I ended up getting inspired by some pasta sauce I had in the pantry and went with pizza hummus. Pizza and beer go together REALLY WELL!

I was very

Chili con Queso

Chili Con Queso

Well nothing like following up a Broccoli and Cheese Soup post with another vat of cheese, please don't judge me. This week's Gameday post is Chili con Queso and it reminds me of my childhood, physical restraint could not stop me from devouring this stuff. I'm not exaggerating, I'm pretty sure my brothers tried to physically restrain me, but we won't get into issues from my childhood. I guarantee you that this easy Chili con Queso will be a hit at any party. I'm sure many of you have heard of the standard block of Velveeta and Rotel mixed together which is the base, but I would like to encourage you to mix it up. Add some diced green chilles, ground turkey (chicken or beef for that matter), chorizo, sausage, diced jalepenos, or sauteed onions. It's so easy, whip some up some for a football game or the World Series this weekend!
