Recipe: Turkey Meatloaf

For my mother’s birthday years ago, okay like two years ago, I gave her Ellie Kriger’s The Food You Crave recipe book and she’s only made one recipe since.  She tried making her Turkey Meatloaf and her Smashed Potatoes with Sour Cream & Chives.   Well, it wasn’t a hit for her, but it was for me!  So, ladies & gents… meatloaf is what’s for dinner tonight.

Recipe: Pad See Ew

Pad See Ew is my favorite Thai dish. For someone who’s still trying new foods, this dish is perfect. I know a lot start eating Pad Thai when trying Thai for the first time, but I didn’t like the peanut mixed in with my food. I read on someone’s blog recently that Pad See Ew literally means “fried with soy sauce.” Um, I like anything fried and I definitely love soy sauce. I mean, I could just eat jasmine rice with soy sauce as a snack.
