Meatloaf is one of those dishes that I seldom cook up.  It just doesn't sound very appetizing.  It's a loaf.  Of meat.  Well, let me slap on a feed bag, and chow down!  However, there are few other dishes that are named so fittingly, either.  I suppose because they're usually a little more complicated than a loaf of meat.  
However, meatloaf always surprises me.  I seldom make it, because it doesn't sound very good, but when I do make it, I'm always surprised at how good it is, and find myself saying, "...why don't I make this more often??"

Cedar Plank Salmon

Hello, everyone!  It's Thursday again, and with the weekend looming, I thought I would give us a healthy supper for today's post!  I do love salmon, so when I saw this beautiful piece of fish on the cedar plank, on sale, I knew I had to scoop it up!

40 Cloves of Garlic and a Chicken

Gggooooodddddd morning, everyone!  Happy Tuesday!!  Today I have another chicken recipe, but this one is one of my favorites (aren't they all my favorite??)  I know 40 cloves of garlic sounds like a lot for a recipe; it sounds like enough to drive away all of the vampires on the planet Earth.  
However, when they poach in the oil, they turn into roasted garlic, and get mild and sweet.

Caramel Turtle Thumbprint Cookies

Hello, everyone!  It's the first Thursday of the month, and we all know what that means!  It's cookie of the month time!!  Honestly, I haven't been this excited about a cookie of the month in awhile.  These cookies are amazing, perfect for this time of the year, and, honestly, so simple to make.  They look so fancy, but take very little effort.  Isn't that the best kind of recipe!?  I think so!

Simple, Easy, Pasta

Hello, everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  My husband was traveling yesterday, for work, and my daughter was home sick, so after being with her all day, and caring for her, I needed something fast and simple for supper.  I remembered a quick pasta dish that I haven't made in forever, but comes together in the time it takes me to unload the dishwasher and reload it, with just a few ingredients.  Even better?  It's delicious, and you can easily add things in, if you have a few extra minutes.  Shrimp in this would be amazing, so would some steak, or chicken!  I love recipes that you can easily customize to your taste!

Chicken and Black Bean Soup

Hello, everyone!  I was thinking the other night, that with fall fully up on us now, that I wanted to have a simple, flavorful soup that wasn't a chili.  I know, I know, this looks like a chili, but it isn't.  It's a really lovely black bean soup!  Even better, it comes together in minutes, and takes at least an hour or two to cook (even less if you use precooked chicken!).
