Skinny Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Frosting. What can be cuter than mini turkey meatloaves topped with skinny mashed potato "frosting". A family friendly meal everyone will love (and no one will guess there are vegetables hiding in the meatloaf)! I'm not sure where the original concept for meatloaf cupcakes was born, but I saw this idea on Home Cooking Rocks and I knew I wanted to make my own skinny version. Since my turkey burgers with zucchini are such a smashing success, I decided to make them with shredded zucchini. The mashed potato frosting is basically my skinny garlic mashed potatoes made with fresh thyme which really compliments the meatloaf. I highly recommend using double metal liners, they hold up well with the meat, and if you want to re-heat leftovers, you can simply take the metal part off and pop them in the microwave.

If you plan on making them and eating them right away, have the mashed potatoes ready so when the meatloaf is cooked, you can top and eat! Ingredients: For the Meatloaf Cupcakes: Makes 12.

Broccoli Cheese Soup. On Wednesday my sister and I volunteered to make the soup supper to go with the Advent service at church. Before you go thinking I'm some kind of charitable, goodhearted soul, I must tell you that the only reason that I do it is because I LOVE COOKING. In case you hadn't figured that out yet. Okay, so I was like, "Whadaya think, Nemo? Will two huge pots of soup, a crockpot full of barbequed meatballs, five trillion chicken salad sandwiches, fifty thousand and two loaves of bread, and a couple bazillion desserts cover it? " Well, it would have, except everybody had to try a huge bowl of BOTH kinds of soup AND meatballs. Barbequed meatballs in broccoli soup. I had to leave the room. Anyways, we ran out of soup after about ten minutes of serving.

So during church I had a sudden inspiration (um, Pastor, if you're reading this, that was a typo. Anways, I burst out of church and ran up to my friend screaming, "Hey guess what!! Yeah. I mean it would be like getting paid to have fun. Okay. Cruftbox. When Intelligentsia Coffee opened in Pasadena recently, I was intrigued the lasagna cupcakes they served. The cupcakes are made by Heirloom LA, a catering business. About the size of a muffin, a single lasagna cupcake was a delicious meal. After seeing how much my daughter enjoyed them (she ate my entire cupcake and I had to order a second one), I decided I had to try making them at home.

After a bit of research, here is my method. The ingredients are fairly simple. Spray or wipe the cupcake tin with olive oil for prevent sticking and add a little flavor. Once you filled in the first layer, gently press another wrapper in, forming another cup. Once you've placed the second wrapper, repeat the filling as you see fit. A bit of Mozzarella cheese on top of it all. I baked them for 20 minutes at 375° F and then come out perfectly browned. If you remembered to use olive oil, they should slide out easily with top crispy and the wrapper moist and tender. The small cupcake size works well for us. Epic Fish Tacos.

Before retiring for a long snooze in the sun.I first discovered them on a trip to Harbour Island earlier this year and have been hooked ever since.

So much so, that I am on a first name basis with most of the team. And before this season, I would have only been on a first name basis with Packer players but some of our friends decided a Fantasy Football League would be fun. Instead of just being interested in the Packer games each week, I cared if Eli threw 3 touchdown passes or 2 interceptions.

So, with serious games on the line in the next couple of weeks, I’ll be sharing some football game party food, because a serious game requires good tasting food. Today’s chicken strips can be used as an appetizer or a main meal. Which NFL players are you on a first name basis with?

Fajitas Comic Cooking. The Baked Mac and Cheese. My favorite thing to eat, hands down, is noodles.

Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Thai... whatever way you make it, I like it. But mac and cheese is high up there on the list, especially baked mac and cheese. Is there anything more comforting? First things first: cook the pasta. I always sneak a few into my mouth after draining it. (Don't you?) Next up: the béchamel sauce. ...and milk. So, back to the butter. Whisk. Gradually pour in the milk and continue to whisk. Reduce the heat, add the cheese, and keep mixing that melty-yummy-goodness. Did someone say garlic? Your macaroni is probably growing impatient. I've been playing this trick on myself recently: substitute a portion of the pasta with veggies. I like using individual ramekins instead of one larger casserole dish, because it allows you to add in whatever veggies and spices you like without offending anyone else.

White Pizza with Spinach and Tomatoes. With my last pizza creation, my chicken teriyaki pizza, I broke my pizza stone. I had got that stone from Pampered Chef a few years ago, and have never been thrilled with the results. I am kind of glad it broke, but it’s not like I intentionally threw it on the floor or something. I didn’t carelessly toss it in the sink, or even slam it on the counter. All I did was grab it, and lift if off the counter. To replace it, I got an Airbake pizza pan. Steak au Poivre - The Showstopper. I have a comment on this comment, then I have a comment for the OP. To Amy: Removing to foil is simply a way to keep the steaks warm whilst resting (FOR 5 MINUTES AT LEAST… ALWAYYYS!).

When the OP says remove to foil, he/she doesn’t mean to wrap them tightly. They mean to place them in a plate, and form a loose ‘covering’ of foil. This will simply trap some of the heat and allow it to remain warm, without trapping too much moisture. To the OP and to anyone else who decides to try ‘flambe’: It is important to note: When you add cognac or any other high proof liquour to a hot pan, then ignite, you are not burning the alcohol itself, per se. . - Never light alcohol while there is an open flame/heat source. . - Notice how in the OP, they remove the pan from the stove and then light. . - Keep a heavy lidded pan nearby, just in case things Do go awry (if you follow the first 2 tips, they won’t) - Always have at least an ABC rated fire extinguisher within arm’s reach.
