Crockpot {Slowcooker} Chicken + Corn Tacos

Around LA (southern California in general) people love their Mexican food, and I am no exception. There's something very comforting about digging your mouth into a mixture of flavorful meat, cilantro, guacamole, salsa and cheese. Mouthwatering, I know. So to give a nod to the famous "Taco Tuesday" (yes, yes I know it's Wednesday, but this is just for your records for next week) I've slowcooked some very flavorful chicken with roasted corn and roasted salsa, as well as a spicy homemade seasoning. What's even better about this recipe, besides the outcome, is that it's easy. Throw it all in a crockpot in the morning, and come home from whatever you do all day (work, school, meandering) and not only will you come home to deliciousness, but you'll smell it the second you walk in your door.

Kentucky Mule Goodness

I was introduced to the popular Moscow Mule a couple years back and immediately was in awe with the copper cup that it came in (and of how delicious it was, of course). It was almost perfect. Almost being the key word. Whiskey has always been my drink of choice, so when I found out there was a rendition called a Kentucky Mule that used bourbon whiskey instead of vodka, I was sold {ecstatic}. So, below, I present you a Moscow Mule with a lil' twist (aka a traditional Kentucky Mule) just because it is too delicious not to share. Drink up, my friends.

Note: I unfortunately did not have those beautiful copper cups that go hand-in-hand with these wondrous cocktails so I had to use the next best thing (a mason jar mug) and it got me just as buzzed :)

BLT + EA with a Garlic, Basil Aioli

The BLT has only recently become a favorite of mine. Why? Because I only started eating bacon within the past three years (weird, I know). Over the past few weeks I've been having egg cravings (even weirder) and thought that including an egg to a traditional BLT and adding an avocado for a lil' pizzazz would be...amazing. To make it even more amazing, and to add my lil' twist on it, I decided instead of traditional mayo to add a flavorful homemade garlic and basil aioli.  After all of that hard thinking, I made it into a reality, and below I present you pure amazingness.

Bruschetta with Avocado, Tomato and Corn

Bruschetta is absolutely delicious. Putting anything on a toasted baguette is bound for success. With my lil' twist mindset, I decided to give it a go with bruschetta. I will never be making traditional bruschetta again. I urge you to try this recipe while it's still warm enough to use the grill (to anyone viewing this outside of southern California), although it is so amazing that using an inside grill (or oven) will suffice just the same.
