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.

Christmas Dessert Recipe: Easy Fantasy Fudge Recipe!

fantasty-fudge

 

Jamie here, fudge was always something I loved but could not make properly for the life of me.  But to be fair, this fudge-failure gene is one I inherited from my mom (along with spider veins and droopy eyelids).  When I was a kid – she would make fudge at least once a month – chocoholics that we are – and she failed miserably every time.  It was always more chocolate goo than anything, and we had to keep it in the freezer just so it would stay a solid.

Browned Butter Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

I have never met a chocolate chip cookie I didn’t like.  But I’m telling you – in 32 years, I have never ever had a chocolate chip cookie this good.  Ever.  My friend Caitie made these for us on a recent visit down to Florida, and if I had been dieting to fit into my bathing suit before I got there, I decided to forget it when she put a plate of these in front of me.  They were almost worth me having muffin top in my beach photos.

Caitie used to work at a cup-cakery, so she knows her way around some sugar and butter, let me tell you.  She got this recipe from Cooks Illustrated, and altered it just a bit. These cookies are really chubby, moist, and they have that certain “heft” you want to feel in your hand when you pick it up off the plate.  And definitely go for the chunks vs. chips if you have the luxury.  The chocolate chunks can hold their own in these dense, nutty flavored cookies.  Chocolate chips would just get lost in there.
