#ad Mini Ground Chicken Meatloaf | Recipe

Meatloaf, to me is the #1 comfort food. I decided to put a twist on it and make it with ground chicken this time. Oooh Meatloaf. Every time I make meatloaf I always think of the very first time I made it. I know I have shared that story before, but it has been a long time.

I had just moved into a larger apartment, Hubby (who was Boyfriend at the time) was coming over and I wanted to make him one of my childhood favorites. Meatloaf. I was SO excited to be sharing this meal and the memories associated with it, with him. I got everything gathered together to get started on the meal. I prepped the peppers and onions, browned the meat, mixed up the sauce......wait something wasn't right. I was confused at what step I missed and asked Hubby to come in the kitchen to see if he knew where I went wrong. I just didn't understand how everything was supposed to stay together. "I keep trying to form it into a loaf and it keeps falling apart. What in the world?" I asked. 

You guys! He BUSTED up laughing. I mean seriously could not contain himself laughing! I had no idea what in the world he could be laughing at!

Then he said it. The words I will NEVER EVER forget. "Brandi, when you make meatloaf you aren't supposed to brown the meat first." WHAT!  Oh I was so mad at myself! We ended up having spaghetti that night instead of meatloaf. Looking back I laugh so hard when I tell this story, at the time it was NOT funny, but it sure is now!
This is a pretty simple meatloaf recipe. All you need is 2 pounds of ground chicken, 2 eggs, Worcestershire Sauce, oats and salt and pepper to taste. That's it.
 Place all of your ingredients into a large bowl, remember to not brown the meat first.  ;-)
 Thoroughly mix all of your ingredients together and form into balls.
Place each ball into a muffin cup, be sure to spray with cooking spray first.
Next, you will want to make the sauce. All you need is some ketchup and brown sugar.
Pour into a measuring cup, or bowl, and mix well.
Pour a spoonful of sauce over each mini meatloaf before placing in the oven.

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray 12 cup muffin tin and set aside.
Place Ground Chicken, Oats, Eggs, Worcestershire Sauce and Milk into a large mixing bowl.
Using a large spoon, or your hands, mix ingredients well.
Form mixture into 12 balls and place each into muffin cups.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
