Slow Cooker Meat Loaf

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

It’s been awhile since I have shared this delicious and easy recipe here on the blog, so I thought it was time to repost. This is a wonderful recipe to have on hand for those days when you know that life is going to be crazy! Slow Cooker Meat Loaf is sure to be your new family’s new favorite way to enjoy meat loaf! Yep, you read that right meat loaf in the slow cooker! Now I know that you may be skeptical of cooking meat Loaf in a slow cooker. I know that I was at first. But let me tell you, it is the Best meat loaf that I have ever had and it is so moist! My guys must think so too because they devoured the entire thing! I really think that you will love it and that it will be a staple in your menu rotation!

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2-2 lbs. Ground Turkey (you could use ground beef as well, but I like how moist the ground turkey is for this recipe)

2/3 Cup Bread Crumbs

2 Eggs

1 Tsp Salt

1 Tsp Ground Onion

1 Tsp Garlic Powder

1/2 Tsp Pepper

1 Lb. Tri-Color Baby Potatoes Cut Into Quarters

1 Lb. Baby Carrots Cut into Halves

DIRECTIONS:

Take the first 7 ingredients and gently mix together. Form into a loaf and place in the middle of the slow cooker. Take the Quartered Potatoes and Baby Carrots and place around the outside edge of the meatloaf. Cook on low for around 5-6 hours.

About 30 minutes before taking off heat, mix together the glaze for the top of the meatloaf. Mix 1/4 cup ketchup, 3 Tbsp. brown sugar, and a dash of mustard. Mix together and place on top of the meatloaf. Cook for an additional 30 minutes just until the glaze is nice and set.

Serve and enjoy! I doubt that there will be any leftovers!

If you are looking for a fun and easy lunch or dinner or even after school snack to make with your kiddos, Garlic Bread Pizzas are the way to go!  Just grab your favorite boxed garlic bread from the grocery store, top with your favorite regular pizza toppings, place in a 350 degree oven and voila! The possibilities are endless! My boys love pepperoni and cheese, but you could do whatever toppings that your family loves. I want to try olives and bacon the next time. What will you try on your garlic bread pizzas?

Peaches and Cream Pretzel Dessert

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

Do you remember that delicious Strawberry Salad Dessert that used to be so popular back in the day? To this day I love that dish so much! I decided to take my own spin on it and create something using Peaches instead. I am in love with peaches during the Summertime and this Peaches & Cream Pretzel Dessert did not disappoint! I also used Gluten Free pretzels to make the dish Gluten Free. The real beauty of this dessert is the fact that it is so versatile and you can change up the fruit to use whatever sounds good! I am going to try Blackberries next as that would be delicious too!

Ingredients:

2 cups crushed pretzels (I used Gluten Free but you can use regular as well)

3/4 cup butter, melted

3 tablespoons white sugar

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

1 cup white sugar

1 (8 ounce) tub of Cool Whip

2 (3-ounce boxes) of Peach flavored JELL-O

2 cups of boiling water

2 (10 ounce) bags of frozen peaches

Directions:

Mix together the melted butter, crushed pretzels and 3 tablespoons of sugar.

Press the mixture into the bottom of a 9×13 pan.

Bake for 8-10 minutes just until browned and set aside to cool.

In the meantime, beat together the cream cheese and sugar. Fold in the Cool Whip.

Spread the mixture out across the cooled Pretzel crust.

Dissolve Gelatin in the Boiling water. Stir in the Frozen Peaches and let them set very briefly. Continue to stir until mixture is about the consistency of egg whites. Take mixture and spoon over the top of the cream cheese layer. Place in refrigerator to let set. I would give it at least 3-4 hours to set up.

Enjoy! You could even add more Cool Whip on the top if you desire. Think about taking this to your next picnic or potluck! I guarantee that there will be none left!

 (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I don’t have to tell you that Keto and low-carb diets are all the fad these days. I have been trying to do the Keto thing and watch my carb intake for the past few weeks. In doing so, I have been finding that eating this way really is not that complicated. I made Sausage and Cheese Stuffed Zucchini Boats for dinner earlier this week and they are delicious! I made enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day- so easy yet so delicious and filling!

Ingredients:

4-6 zucchini washed and halved

1 jar marinara or pasta sauce

8oz. shredded mozarella cheese

1lb. cooked sausage

salt/pepper for taste

1/2 tsp. onion powder

 

Directions:

Preheat over to 350 degrees.

Scoop out the center of each of the halved zucchinis to make a “boat”.

Place in a greased baking pan.

Pour spaghetti sauce over each “boat”.

Spread cooked sausage and cheese evenly over each zucchini.

Sprinkle onion powder, salt and pepper over the entire dish.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until zucchini are tender and the cheese is bubbly.

Serve and enjoy! My entire family loved these!

Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Trifles with Miss Jones Baking Co.

Disclosure: As a brand ambassador, I received products to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I was recently given the wonderful opportunity to become a Baker Babe Brand Ambassador with Miss Jones Baking Co. This awesome company based in San Francisco, California offers homemade-tasting organic cake, brownie and cookie mixes and frostings. Everything that they make features simple, non-GMO ingredients, no hydrogenated oils or trans fats, no artificial flavors or colors. 

As a brand ambassador, I was sent several products so that I could create some amazing goodies and share them with you all! I wanted to think out of the box with these delicious products and thought that a trifle would be a great dessert for summertime! For my Chocolate Raspberry Brownie Cheesecake Trifles, I used Miss Jones Baking Co. Fudgy Brownie Baking Mix and the Miss Jones Chocolate Frosting Made with Coconut Oil. With a few extra additions, I ended up with the most delicious and decadent dessert that you could ever sink your teeth into!

Ingredients:

1 box Miss Jones Baking Co. Fudgy Brownie Baking Mix

1 tub Miss Jones Chocolate Frosting Made with Coconut Oil

2 eggs

2T. water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1 8oz. brick softened cream cheese

1 pint of raspberries

Mason Jars trifles

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, mix together the brownie mix, eggs, oil and water. Grease a 8×8 baking pan and pour batter in pan. Bake for 33-37 minutes or until center is set with a toothpick. Take out of oven and set aside to cool.

While brownies are cooling, take the tub of Miss Jones Chocolate Frosting and place inside a large mixing bowl with the brick of softened cream cheese. Beat on low with a mixer until nice and fluffy. Set aside.

Now that brownies are cooled, cut them into small squares to fit into the mason jars. Take a spoonful of chocolate cream cheese mixture and place in a mason jar. Top with a brownie square and add raspberries on top. Keep alternating back and forth. Make sure that you end with chocolate cream cheese mixture and raspberries on top. You can even shave some chocolate on the top for a nice touch.

Enjoy! I hope that you love Miss Jones Baking Co. products as much as I do!

I recently placed my order and will be picking up in June!

I don’t know about you all, but I feel that it is getting harder and harder to find great sales on good quality meats. It seems that you used to find great sales here and there, but those sales are very rare any more. Thankfully, Zaycon Fresh is here to help us as families save on Chicken, Beef, Pork and even fresh fruits when available!

If you see a product that you would like to try, you need to order it now. Items sell out very quickly so place your now if interested. There is limited availability with each item.

How does the Zaycon Fresh process work?

You will first GO HERE and create an account.

My favorite item from Zaycon Fresh is definitely their Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts. These have no added hormones and are 100% natural chicken and are minimally processed, with no additives or artificial ingredients. I keep this chicken breast in our freeze at all times as it is the BEST chicken that we have ever tasted not to mention that they are huge!

A few months back I picked up my 40 pound box and it only took me around 1 hour to divide the 40 pounds up into bags and place in my freezer. There is very minimal fat that you will have to cut away so that makes that process fairly simple. For our family of four, I was able to get about 20 freezer bags of chicken. So, that is roughly 20 meals. As someone who is always looking for ways to save my family money, that is an awesome deal! Not to mention I know that the quality of the chicken I am feeding my family is SUPERB!

Are you ready to try Zaycon Fresh for yourself? GO HERE to set up an account and try it out! You will not be disappointed!
