    Subject: Meat Loaf

    Last week, I couldn't resist the temptation and bought one of those meatloaf pans that lets the fat drip into the bottom. Have you seen one? It's a loaf pan with a second "tray" where loaf sits but fat falls into the bottom of the main pan. You just lift out the loaf, less fat, and no having to use a spoon for that first piece? Well, since I got the new pan, I didn't want to try my tired old meatloaf recipe (from my mom, God bless her!).

    So I went to my first stop, FoodNetwork.com, entered "meatloaf", sorted by ratings, and to what did my wondering eyes should appear but a Paula Deen recipe! 874 ratings, 5 stars! So I printed it, tried it, and (sorry, Mom) we have a new meatloaf recipe in the house.

    Old-Fashioned Meat Loaf- A.K.A 'Basic' Meat Loaf Recipe : Paula Deen : Food Network

    Notations - I didn't have green bell pepper, I used red. I also didn't have "quick cooking" oatmeal, so I used regular (I always used that anyway in meatloaf) and I used a bit more than her recipe called for. And since my oven tends to cook a bit more quickly than others, I took a reviewer's suggestion and lowered the temperature to 350 instead of 375. Perfect results!

    My family LOVED it, and I "fell off the vegetarian wagon" big time!

    Today I made a new card for my recipe box and had to say goodbye to my mother's recipe

    Re: Just Recipes

    allrecipes has a great one for brown sugar meatloaf. It sounds strange using brown sugar but it is very good.

    I don't use a recipe and just throw stuff in. Breadcrumbs, S/P, egg etc. But I do top with some undiluted tomato soup from a can during the last 15min. of baking.
    I very much believe in rescuing animals, not buying them.

    This is soooo wrong. When I was pregnant, I craved Cadbury Creme Eggs and ate embarrassing quantities of them. I can't stand them now...besides, they're so sugary they literally hurt my teeth. This isn't even the nastiest Creme Egg recipe...click the link in the article before the recipe and check out the Creme Eggs Benedict.

    I too, do not eat the Cadbury Eggs anymore for a similar reason, but I would try that recipe.

    Talking about teeth hurting, have you ever had a grilled chocolate sandwich?
    2 slices of white bread, 2 hersey bars, in between the white bread. Butter the outside of the bread and grill like a grilled cheese. OMG. You need about 4 people to split this as you cannot eat it by yourself.

    Re: Just Recipes

    Sounds kind of like Nutella-on-toast. Hey, why not add marshmallow cream and make a Smore sandwich? I just had my WLS so probably won't be trying either anytime soon. Maybe you, me, and my sister could split one.

    Oh, and I love Easter eggs of all kinds. But no way could I eat a Cadbury's now, and I'm really going to have to try to control my sweet tooth until my stomach gets where it can actually hold the 1/2 cup capacity. Right now it's a major chore to get in all my protein within a full day much less anything else; I think I'd better get going to the vitamin store now!

    Re: Just Recipes

    I went and bought a Cadbury egg last year (two, actually) and it was so sweet I couldn't even finish it. I try not to eat a lot of refined sugar now, so my taste buds must not be used to so much sweetness. I was sort of sad, since I used to really love them!

    My little treat for myself is the occasional Wonka Scrumdiddlyumptious bite. Milk chocolate with toffee and peanuts. YUM! If I buy the candy bar, I'll eat the whole thing. Now they sell a bag of little, individually wrapped bites and I only need one. Apparently, with me, the package is the serving size. This is why I don't buy potato chips or ice cream!

    Whoops! I just noticed what thread I'm in. Sorry about that. Back to recipes!

    I found this one a while back and am dying to try it!

    Re: Just Recipes

    We are having a baby shower for my godchild. I need to make a vegetable dish. We are having lasagne roast beef roasted potatoes various salads, but we need to have a vegetable. There will be about 25 people. I'm thinking of something cold, marinated, because I have to bring it to the house that we are having the shower at and her oven will be full already.

    I was at a Christmas dinner where they served asparagus bunches wrapped in shreds of carrots like you would tie something with a ribbon. I have been looking for this recipe but can't seem to find it. I'll steam the asparagus, and marinade them in EVOO and balsamic vinagar, fresh garlic, but I wasn't sure if the carrots should be par boiled before shredding. They will be used as ties. What does everyone think? Or if you have any favourite recipe for a cold vegetable dish, I'd like some ideas.

    ETA: Critical, that sounds delightful!
