Meatloaf cupcakes & Pumpkin brownies

Today was a good day for food, bad day for my 16 month old daughter who, came down with the flu at 2am and threw up in bed and all over herself every 2 hours. She’s so tough though, she didn’t cry once. My boyfriend offered to cook his new favorite meatloaf cupcakes. All it is, is meatloaf stuffed in a muffin tin and then topped with mashed potatoes. So good. For dessert, I baked Two Ingredient Pumpkin Brownies. So good also! A big hit. I got the recipe from

1 (19.5 ounce) box brownie mix
1 (15 ounce) can pumpkin

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray or line with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, mix together brownie mix and pumpkin until combined and smooth.

3. Pour batter into your pan and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.

Mine turned out really thin. I think it was my brownie mix that included a herseys syrup.






Easy crockpot meatballs

If you want a two ingredient dish that everyone devours, read on. This is the easiest, most simple crockpot dish ever. Bag of frozen meatballs and a bottle of bbq sauce. I double it cause I’m feeding 5 (with three men included!). Throw it in the crockpot and stir! Cook a few hours till done. I threw it in around 11am on low and they will be so ready around 5 or 6pm for dinner! Served with French bread

Meal planning

So this is hard. No wonder I’ve put it off for so long. I didn’t know how to do it, but at least now I have a plan. I had to go to the dollar tree for supplies. Spent $2 and was set.
I got note pads and a container, and I labeled each divider into the different food boards on my Pinterest. I’m only adding recipes into the container that I have actually made. Adding the ingredients and instructions per note card. I have mostly desserts, oops 🙂
