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.

Baked Sweet Potatoes


Sweet potatoes are one of my favorite vegetables, which works out great since they are packed full of nutrients and very healthy for you. They give you more than the recommended daily value of Vitamin A and about 1/3 of the Vitamin C needed, Whole Foods has the details here, or you can just trust me.

Sweet potatoes are also very versatile. I've never been a fan of the way you usually see them prepared at Thanksgiving with brown sugar and the works, that's just too sweet for me. I really enjoy them cooked on the grill, sauteed with spinach, in a black bean burrito, baked, in soups, as french fries, really the list could go on. The baked sweet potatoes I'm featuring in this post are far from fancy, and a ridiculously easy weeknight side and also make a good lunch. Most offices have microwaves, and it's definitely worth annoying your coworkers and holding up the microwave for 10 minutes for this healthy and tasty lunch. The recipe for this recipe, which is a knock off of these grilled sweet potatoes with scallions, is below.

Naan Pizza


I made two variations of naan pizza for dinner last night; one meatball and spinach (because I had some leftover meatballs begging to be eaten in the freezer) and one zucchini, tomato, and onion. Both were really tasty and it was tough deciding which one I wanted a second slice of, so I opted for both.

 

Naan pizzas are a great solution if you don't know what kind of pizza to make, the smaller size allows you to make several different kinds and it's quicker and easier than making pizza dough. If you can't find naan, use flatbread. Below are the ingredients and directions, but you can of course use any combination that inspires you.  I also refer to 'grilling', but I live an apartment so am forced to use a grill pan which doesn't give the taste that a real grill does.

Corn and Tomato Scramble

 

 

This corn and tomato scramble from Epicurious is one of my favorite side dishes, especially when I can find some fresh corn on the cob (which I didn't this time, but it's still tasty).  The only changes I make to this are using balsamic vinegar instead of cider vinegar, I also try to use about a 1/2 to 2/3 of the butter it recommends, and sometimes I throw in avocados.  As soon as you can find corn on the cob at your market, do yourself a favor and make this.
