Well, it's September. I'm not sure how that happened, but summer is a happy memory and all our chickies are back to school with their new backpacks and school shoes. And one thing is for sure...they will come home hungry. And needing to be taken to soccer practice and karate and to Staples for that school project that involves building a roller coaster out of foamcore (yes, this happened to me) all at the same time. And since you may also have a thing or two on your OWN to-do list, this is when the slow cooker turns into your new best friend. Here are seven recipes that are favorites in my house...and have turned many a crazy day into a calm and delicious evening. Well...relatively calm, anyway.

Baked Avocado with Eggs and Bacon http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/baked-avocado-with-eggs-and-bacon.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/baked-avocado-with-eggs-and-bacon.html#comments Thu, 18 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14653 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Baked Avocado with Eggs and Bacon ---

I am all about eggs for dinner. And that's not just because eggs totally call for bacon along with them - it's just that they are so easy and comforting and pretty much good for you. I also love avocados with all my heart, and everything I just said about the egg is also true about the avocado. Well, maybe not the bacon part, but everything else. All true. So I guess it was only a matter of time before I put the two of them together, right? Welcome to baked avocado with eggs and bacon.

Grilled Fish Tacos! http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/grilled-fish-tacos.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/grilled-fish-tacos.html#comments Tue, 16 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14621 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Grilled Fish Tacos! ---

I've been in a serious fish taco mood lately. A corn tortilla, crunchy lettuce, sweet tomato, spicy creamy sauce, tangy lime, bet-you-can't-eat-just-one fish taco mood. And so the Southern husband has been getting a steady diet of fish tacos (it is SO convenient that tortillas only come in packs of approximately one million) as I figure out which variety of fish taco is my very, very favorite. First up: grilled fish tacos, complete with all that good stuff I listed above AND some sweet grilled pineapple just for good measure.

Smoked Salmon Potato Bites http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/smoked-salmon-potato-bites.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/smoked-salmon-potato-bites.html#comments Sun, 14 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14618 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Smoked Salmon Potato Bites ---

I don't make things with smoked salmon that often - I'm not sure why, because whenever we have it I remember that it is tender and salty and tastes like the ocean. But I tend to like it in little bits, like the recipe for everything scrambled eggs that I posted last week, which means that whenever I buy it I tend to have leftover smoked salmon in the fridge. And while I always can and do whirl some of it into a salmon cream cheese spread, this time I decided to try it as part of a little appetizer. Meaning that once again the Southern husband got appetizers for dinner. (He didn't seem to mind.)

Okay, here is the post where you get to hear about my summer vacation. You knew it was coming, and there is no escape. Okay, there IS an escape, but before you hit that escape key, I promise there is a delectable recipe for what I call Everything Scrambled Eggs at the end of this. If you can bear it. And if you find yourself anywhere in south central Vermont in the future, there are also a few recommendations below. Come on with me to Vermont for a minute or two, and then we'll have eggs!

Lemon Sage Spatchcock Chicken http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/lemon-sage-spatchcock-chicken.html http://www.framedcooks.com/2014/09/lemon-sage-spatchcock-chicken.html#comments Tue, 09 Sep 2014 14:00:00 +0000 http://www.framedcooks.com/?p=14606 ---- If this post is not displaying properly, view it in your browser here: Lemon Sage Spatchcock Chicken ---

Okay, let me get the whole spatchcock explanation done right up front. When you spatchcock your chicken, you basically cut out the backbone (which is super easy - more on that later!), which lets you flatten it out so that the chicken is flat instead of round. It makes it quicker to cook, easier to carve up into pieces, and as an extra added bonus is very fun to say. As in, "I think I'm going to spatchcock a chicken tonight." Ready to spatchcock?
