Stuffing Meatloaf

Stuffing Meatloaf

Meatloaf is an American classic, and is something that many people list as a comfort food.  In our household, meatloaf is something that’s reserved for Fall and Winter meals when I don’t mind turning on the oven.  This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is different from our previous meatloaf recipe.  This version gets the majority of the seasoning from a package of corn bread stuffing mix that’s used as the breading in the meatloaf.      This recipe for stuffing meatloaf is easy to prepare, and goes great with cauliflower mashed potatoes and garlic green beans.

Gumdrop Cake

Gumdrop Cake

Gumdrop Cake is usually a Christmas tradition in certain cultures, so why am I making one in February?   Don’t you know that today is National Gumdrop Day?    I already had some gumdrops, and having been inspired by this post for a Christmas Gumdrop Bundt Cake, I decided that I would celebrate today by making a Gumdrop cake.  I, however, lacked the ambition to create a cake from scratch, so I used a cake mix.  (Gasp!)

I may be overdoing things with these crinkle cookies, but with upcoming holidays, I just realized that what we need in our lives is Red Velvet Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies.  Think about it.  Red is a great color for Christmas, but it’s a great color for Valentine’s day, too.  That means that there are at least two occasions where red velvet crinkle cookies can make an appearance in your house.  There are other times, too. 

Pumpkin Cake Roll

This recipe for Pumpkin Cake Roll may be coming a little late to the annual pumpkin recipe party, but I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to share it with all of my readers.  It’s just too good to wait until next fall.   This tantalizing dessert of pumpkin cake wrapped around a sweet and tangy cream cheese frosting is addictive.  Besides, this Pumpkin Cake Roll freezes well, so if you’ve picked up any pumpkin that’s on sale, you can make several and store them in the freezer until you’re ready to entertain.

Moist and Delicious Cornbread

Moist and Delicious Corn Bread

Have you ever experienced dry and crumbly corn bread?  Unfortunately, it’s a common occurrence.  You pick up the freshly cut piece of cornbread, and as you attempt to cut it in half to spread it with butter, it falls into pieces.  This recipe guarantees a moist and delicious pan of corn bread through the addition of a can of creamed style corn.  This recipe lives up to its name–Moist and Delicious, but one of the best things about this recipe is that it begins with two boxes of cornbread mix.
