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.

Chorizo & Cornbread Taco Salad

Chorizo & Cornbread Taco Salad


One of our go to quick dinners is some form of taco salad or burrito bowls. There are enough meat, veggie and bean combinations, it adds enough variety for me...I get bored easily. They're quick to throw together, usually don't dirty too many dishes, can use staples you have on hand and are filling...making everyone happy! One of my go to Taco Seasonings when making the salads or the bowls is the Trader Joe's brand, it has a nice kick. This is the perfect I just got home from work at 7:30, am ravaged and my pregnancy bedtime is 9pm type of dinner. 

I had some leftover cornbread (I used this Skillet Cornbread from the Pioneer Woman) and was on a chorizo kick, which is how this not so pretty...but oh so delicious dinner came together. I mean, can you really go wrong with chorizo? I didn't use the Trader Joe's Taco Seasoning on this one because there were too many other flavors coming together.

Cheese Enchiladas with Chile con Carne

Chile Con Carne Enchiladas 2

While I was way behind with my Deviled Eggs recipe post for Easter, I am on the ball in getting you ready for Cinco de Mayo!

You know I love my queso, well I also love Tex Mex in general. I was a HUGE fan of these enchiladas filled with cheesy goodness and topped with meaty goodness. It doesn't get much better than that, does it!?

Cilantro Lime Rice

Cilantro Lime Rice

Are you in awe? I just put before you a giant bowl of white rice! Don't worry, while a vat of white rice would excite Mr. KMW, I wouldn't do that to you guys. This rice has some flavor! It was a perfect side to the carnitas I posted earlier this week, and would really work well with any Mexican dinner.

Bret's Carnitas

Bret's Carnitas 3

My family is a little competitive...and by a little, I mean extremely. In case you don't remember, I have two older brothers, Aaron & Bret, and we know how to make anything a competition. It was always tough for them growing up, having their little sister be the most athletic one in the family :). 

Needless to say, the last time my family got together, Aaron & Bret were debating who has more recipes on KMW, whose recipes are more popular, etc. I absolutely love it, it means every time I visit them I eat like a king. So what do you think? Are you on Team Aaron? Or Team Bret?

This time around, Bret and his wife made a fantastic Mexican spread. Guacamole, Carnitas, Cilantro Lime Rice and a Black Bean Salad.

Today I'm bringing you Bret's Carnitas, but look forward to Krista's Cilantro Lime Rice later this week.

Cajun Salmon Tacos

Cajun Salmon Tacos

It was Taco Week at our house a couple of weeks ago, that translates to Taco Week on KMW this week. Whenever I use the slow cooker, that feeds us for about four nights so we had the Slow Cooker Chipotle Chicken Tacos I posted  on Monday for 4 nights and these Cajun Salmon Tacos the rest of the week. Pretty solid week if you ask me. My only regret was that queso wasn't involved.

The key to these Cajun Salmon Tacos was the seasoning. I went with this Louisiana Cajun Seasoning, it was recommended to me by my coworker from Louisiana, so it's legit. This seasoning really does add excelent flavor to fish, or chicken...or veggies, and probably even rice for that matter. Definitely check it out. I suppose other cajun seasoning would work, but just remember, it wasn't recommened by a local.

And then top the salmon off with some slaw. I used red cabbage for the slaw, because that's what arrived in my CSA, but I'm sure it could easily be swapped out for green cabbage. And you could always purchase cole slaw, that is if you don't fear the excessive amount of mayonnaise in the store bought kind like I do.
