I know I said that my Strawberry & Avocado Salad with Salmon was Summer, but so is this one! Ripe peaches, tomatoes and corn off the cob...pretty much Summer if you ask me. I think I'll designate the Strawberry & Salmon salad as my main dish summer salad and this one as my side dish summer salad. Deal? Although technically you could throw some Salmon on this and it would make a darn good main dish salad too.

This salad is summer. Crisp romaine lettuce, strawberries bursting with flavor, ripe avocado, blue cheese and broiled salmon make for one refreshing salad. It was absolutely perfect for a warm summer evening. Plus I felt super healthy eating this for dinner.
The name says it all, these Corn Risotto Stuffed Poblano Peppers were freaking ridiculously good! Fresh summer corn on the cob is used for the creamy and delicious risotto and the flavors blend perfectly with the poblano pepper.
Mr. KMW and I could not get enough. It was one of those nights, we were really happy we hadn't invited friends over for dinner, this way we got to eat the second helpings ourselves. We swear we love our friends, its just that sometimes him being an only child comes out in the both of us.
I got the recipe from The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Remember when I had this on my Christmas list? Well my parents traipsed around the state of New Jersey to get me a signed copy!
And since I have been a longtime fan of Deb over at Smitten Kitchen I gave one to my sister-in-law for Christmas. Now our new favorite pastime when we get together is swapping stories about the mouth drooling recipes we've made out of this cookbook. This one has gotten so much use at our house, the pages are sticking together. No question in my mind you should go get yourself a copy of this cookbook!
Below is the recipe, with a few minor adjustments from the original.
Before we get into my absolutely favorite broccoli (it tastes like candy), I know I've been MIA. I was busy relaxing and enjoying some vacation time in Hawaii.
This trip will definitely get its own travel post, but I can't tell you how nice it was to have an entire week off of work. It had been way too long. I will be inundating you with pictures from our exploring, relaxing, eating and drinking our way through the Big Island in another post. So back to the broccoli for now!
Let's talk about easy weeknight dinners. I don't know about you, but I need more of them in my life and these BBQ Chicken Sweet Potato Boats are officialy in the rotation. What's your favorite easy weeknight dinner?
I kind of cheated, I used my Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken to top a sweet potato that I cooked in the microwave...does it get any easier than that? I'm just trying to give you some proof on how versatile that slow cooker chicken is, as I pair it with my love for sweet potatoes.
