Dad’s Meatloaf

I loved me a good meatloaf! What I really like about this recipe is that they use rolled oats instead of bread or breadcrumbs. I was never a fan of ever getting a piece of soggy bread in my mouth. Ewwwwwwwwww!
On my new computer side of things, I have seen the machine twice! Woohoo! The OT’s are working to download the proper programs and then there will be a few weeks of me working with the OT’s to make sure it’s running properly and then I’ll be off and running!
Guys, that means that I will finally be able to make posts again! Though I think that I will continue to reblog posts by my blogging friends.
Happy cooking!

Ultimate comfort food, made safe!

Dad's Meatloaf (small)

Well, it’s here. The middle of winter in the Midwestern. For those of you not familiar with the Midwestern United States, I’ll explain. At this time of year, there are basically two different types of weather: ridiculously cold and snowy, or sort of cold with dreary, drizzly rain. We’ll have beautiful sunny skies but instant frostbite, or steel grey skies with nonstop misty rain that makes it impossible to dial in your windshield wipers and has everyone self-diagnosing as having Seasonal Affective Disorder. I love the first big snowfall of the season, but after that, winter can just go somewhere else. So in this bleak season when the skies are the color of granite and the cold unrelentingly grips your toes, I feel the need for good comfort food. And in my mind, there are few better comfort foods than meatloaf.

Crock Pot Cabbage Roll Stew

This recipe looks super yummy and ultra easy! You get all of the flavours of cabbage rolls without all the work. Personally, I would use rice rather than cauliflower rice because I would have enjoyed the carbs but that’s up to you.
I hope you enjoy the recipe! Happy cooking!

Cabbage rolls tend to be a popular dish found in the Balkans, Central, Northern, and Eastern Europe and some places in Western Asia, Iran, and North Africa. Though, when we think of cabbage rolls here in the United States, most often those rolls come from Polish and Jewish Eastern European influences and they tend to be popular in many different communities.

That being said, I had received a large head of green cabbage in my locally grown, organic fruit and veggie delivery the other day. As I took the cabbage out of the box, I instantly remembered a recipe I had come across for cabbage roll stew and right then and there I decided that was what I’d make.

Chicken Meatballs

I think that theses chicken meatballs look really easy and delicious! You could make them with ground turkey (Alison) if you prefer.
If you don’t have any string cheese sticks, you can omit it or use other cheese. Mozzarella would be nice!
Happy cooking!

I’ve had an emotional day. I can’t tell you exactly why, but I’m pretty sure it has a lot to do with my hashimotos disease. Sometimes I’m super grumpy and I cry or get angry for no reason at all. For whatever reason cooking makes me feel better. Why shouldn’t I go ahead and make some lunches for the little munchkin? I always like to have food that is processed as little as I possibly can. I really hate to send things that are unhealthy. I have a really hard time not giving him as much healthy food as I can. I guess this stems from my fear that my own health problems might be given to him. We live in a country where most of our residents are insulin resistant and a lot are starting to show signs of having things like hashimoto’s and grave’s disease. This isn’t something that I want for Cooper. I…

All of the taste, none of the cast iron skillet burns!

Easy Oven Fajitas (small)

I’ve said it before (in my world-famous fire-roasted salsa post): I love Mexican food. Specifically Tex-Mex, actually. Tacos, chimichangas, enchiladas… Despite being a born-and-raised Indiana boy, this is some of the best comfort food I can think of. I have noticed that every time we go to a Mexican restaurant, when the server walks through the dining room with the sizzling cast iron skillet of fajitas, every head turns and watches them go by, most saying, “ooooh, that looks good.”

With small kids in the house, a sizzling cast iron skillet isn’t always the wisest choice. So we find another way. These fajitas are simple and made in the oven, but will definitely pass the test.

One of the best things about fajitas is the veggies. Sliced fresh bell peppers (or poblanos, if you are feeling a little extra chile-y)…
