The ingredients must have come to me in my sleep. The more I use my slow cooker, the more I love it.

Cedar Planked Salmon with Cayenne Lime Butter

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.

Garlic Mustard & Shallot Turkey Burgers

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

We had a productive and busy weekend here. I finally unpacked our last moving box (yes, that's 3 months after moving in). It was full of my cookbooks and I found a shelf that works perfect for our space and we are officially box free!




We hit up the Chihuly Exhibit at the Seattle Center.

And took advantage of a beautiful Sunday to get a hike in at Rattlesnake Ridge. It had beautiful views from the top, and we're still getting used to all of the Evergreens around this part of the country!

A perfect way to end the weekend was firing up the grill and making some turkey burgers.

Tex Mex Sloppy Joes

Tex Mex Sloppy Joe

As you can tell by the picture, these Sloppy Joe's are messy, but just grab yourself a napkin, they're supposed to be sloppy. They are totally worth the mess, they were extremely satisfying and also easy to make, perfect for a weeknight dinner.  I never liked sloppy joes as a child, and that can of Manwich always scared me as an adult, but thanks to this recipe Sloppy Joe's are now a part of my life. So give this homemade tex mex version a try.

Sriracha Meatballs

Sriracha Meatballs

I've told you this before, but I love Sriracha. So it shouldn't be all too surprising to you that I dreamt about Sriracha meatballs. I'm not kidding, it was the night I had this Sriracha Glazed Chicken for dinner so Sriracha was on my mind and it was totally natural. I believe those dreams that don't involve Sriracha or meatballs are called nightmares.

Next step was making my dreams come true and boy did I make that happen. I made so many meatballs we were able to eat them straight up, dipped in Sriracha of course. They were also good dipped in terriyaki sauce

and on pizza with spinach, mushrooms, mozarella and ricotta. 

Sriracha Meatball Pizza

That's right, I said ricotta, now I have the excuse to make this for breakfast. We won't get into the issues I had getting the pizza from the peel to the stone. Let's just say it wasn't pretty and I need some more practice, let's just move onto the recipe that is adapted from Life Ambrosia.

'Quick' Sausage and Mushroom Lasagna

A week or so ago my husband not so subtly requested I make some lasagna. Doesn't he have pretty handwriting?

Well he requested lasagna and stuffing, but I clearly wasn't making both for dinner and decided the stuffing could wait until I made it with my mom, because her stuffing is amazing. So lasagna it was, and I got around to making it this past weekend.


I found a Bon Appetit recipe for a 'quick' lasagna, but please keep in mind that no lasagna is really that quick, this recipe is just not as time consuming as a lot of other lasagna recipes. The main reasons are because because it doesn't require you to make your own sauce and it uses no boil lasagna noodles. I like the recipe because it's an overall good base and you can mix up the ingredients you use. You can make it vegetarian and just use mushrooms, spinach, squash and zucchini or you can mix up the meat and use prosciutto or turkey sausage. You can mix up the sauce and use pesto instead of a traditional red sauce and you can of course play with the cheeses. The list could go on, but the point is you can really cater this to fit your tastes. It's really good as is too though! My only issue was I didn't like sharing my bottle of wine with the lasagna, it did help add some really nice flavor to the sausage and mushrooms though. This Sausage and Mushroom Lasagna Recipe is one I will definitely be using again, both as is and with some variety. Keep reading for the recipe with a couple of slight variations that I made this time around.

It's Football Season!

It's football season! That means it's one of my favorite times of year, I love lazy Saturdays and Sundays of watching football, snacking, and drinking bloody mary's and beer.  Go Chiefs!, Go Giants! Go Jayhawks!, and Go Blitz Divas (my fantasy team)!

To kickoff the season I'll share this easy and tasty dip that my aunt made when we were out visiting last week.  It doesn't look pretty, but trust me, it's good and perfect for Gameday.

1 lb ground turkey breakfast sausage
1 can Rotel
1 brick low fat cream cheese
Tortilla chips

Break apart and brown turkey in stove top pan over medium heat. Add cream cheese, stir until melted. Then add rotel and stir until combined. Use tortilla chips for dipping and enjoy!
