Best Ever Mississippi Mud Cake Recipe

best ever mississippi mud cake

Kasey here, my kids and I made this mouth watering Mississippi Mud Cake today for my husband for Father’s Day. It’s completely from scratch, but so easy to make. In fact, my 7 and 10 year old could almost make it by themselves, with a little help from mom of course. It’s a perfect last minute dessert for your favorite chocolate lover. We decided to eat a little piece tonight since my hubby came in from working in the yard and saw what we were cooking. I think it was the first time my kids had ever had Mississippi Mud Cake before, they said it was the best cake ever and that the frosting tasted like fudge! [Read more...]

How to Cook Bacon in the Microwave

How to Cook Bacon in the Microwave

Jamie here!  I truly love bacon, but I rarely went to all the bother of cooking it until I learned how to cook bacon in the microwave.  It’s so much less messy, and you can cook just a few pieces at a time for an individual breakfast, sandwiches or to crumble over a salad.

I’ll admit, it seems like  it won’t work – I was a non-believer at first too!  But it’s come out crispy and delicious every time I’ve made it :)  Add in the fact that you won’t have to clean your entire stovetop afterwards, and I’m completely sold.

Mom’s Best Meatloaf Recipe

Mom's best meatloaf Recipe

Kasey here, although we follow a clean eating lifestyle we do have a cheat meal or two at least once or twice a week. My kids absolutely LOVE meatloaf, it’s one of their favorite meals. This is my mom’s best meatloaf recipe that I thought I’d share with you. My favorite part is the yummy ketchup/brown sugar/vinegar topping. I often make two at a time and put one in the freezer for later.  I serve with mashed potatoes and broccoli for a delicious home cooked supper.

We post quite a bit of recipes around here! Check out other dinner recipes and clean eating recipes to help plan your weekly meals.
