Italian Style Turkey Meatloaf

Italian Style Turkey Meatloaf

Sometimes, there’s nothing more satisfying than a nice slice of meatloaf.  It’s comfort food at it’s finest.  I have a recipe I’ve been making for years, learned it from my momma.  Basically just dump meat, egg, breadcrumbs, ketchup and mustard in and mix it up with your hands…top with bacon and voila!  But over the


Maple-Mustard Glazed Chicken

There’s something about maple that I love.  Pure maple syrup.  KB loves it too.  In fact, he had my big sister import him a gallon container from Ohio…straight from the trees.  By the way, he’s all out, Dr. M, so if you care to send him (or me) some more for Christmas, you know where


Habanero Peach Salsa

So remember how the other day when I was talking about my bourbon-vanilla poached peaches, I mentioned how I had taken the children peach picking?  And I had an abundance of peaches?  And I wasn’t in to making more peach jam since last year, we had picked a bushel and I still had 2 different


Guacamole Brown Rice

Rice is like a blank canvas.  It’s starchy and filling, but can taste like nothing.  Of course there are many different variations of rice.  One of my favorites happens to be brown rice.  It’s even a little healthier for you than regular white rice – it’s the unrefined version of white rice and contains much


Bourbon Vanilla Poached Peaches

I took the kids to pick peaches at the end of August.  May not have been the peak of peach-picking season, but I was desperate for something to do before school started. I think TAB thought I was her social director.  Every morning as she bounded down the stairs with bundles of energy, the first


Clean Fettuccine Alfredo

Confession time – I had a hard time spelling fettuccine this morning.  Maybe it’s because I’m still recovering from some early mornings last week.  Maybe it’s because I haven’t had any coffee.  Maybe it’s just because it’s a HARD word to spell.  Thank goodness for spell check and Google.  I Google everything I don’t know.


Crockpot Salsa Chicken

I’m completely random sometimes.  KB says it’s because I’m being creative, but usually it’s because I have a bunch of ingredients I need to use up and I find a way to combine them all – win-win.  So the concept of salsa chicken is nothing new.  But the other day, I had a half eaten


Authentic Cuban Sandwiches

Cuban pork roast calls for Cuban sandwiches?  Of course that’s really the only reason why I made my Crockpot Cuban pork roast the other day – which can conveniently be found here: http://sweet-carolines.com/dinner/crock-pot-cuban-pork-roast/ Cuban sandwiches are an easy recipe – they don’t take much in the way of active cooking time, but it does take a


Crock Pot Cuban Pork Roast

Have I mentioned how much I love my crock pot?  That bad boy has been with me since I lived in Alaska over 12 years ago.  Wowza!  I hope it never dies on me.   OK so here’s a random thought.  Some people call it a crock pot and some people call it a slow


Oreo Breakfast Rolls

So the other day I told KB I was going to make Oreo Cinnamon Rolls for him to take into work for the first day of the new OCS class.  And he looked at me like I had 2 heads.  I think it was just the thought of Oreos mixed with cinnamon that horrified him.
