Recipe: Mini Meatloaves

Anything that is mini-sized is cute, don't you think? In cooking, making miniature versions of foods is also a great way to keep portions in check. As an added bonus, it often speeds up the cooking time. Those are just a few of the benefits of these mini meatloaves. Cooked in a muffin tin, they come together in less than half the time of a traditional meat loaf, are sized-just-right so you get to have 2 of them in a serving, and are cute and fun to boot, if I do say so myself!

Recipe: Oven-less Black Jack Tacos

Even though we are half-way through September, here in Nashville we are still battling the rentless, high-humidity 90 degree heat. So we have to try and keep cool however we can, and that includes keeping the oven off as much as possible. While I do love cool salads in the summertime, I am starting to crave something a little different. So now is the perfect time for my Oven-less Black Jack Tacos (the only cooking required is a quick 1-minute spin the the microwave to melt the cheese).

Eat Two of These WHOLE Pizzas for Less than 250 Calories! (Recipe)

It's Friday! Woo-hoo! If you're like me, Fridays brings back memories of pizza parties and sleepovers. I remember as a teenager when I thought eating anything with fat was a bad thing (this is called fat phobia and many of us who were around in the '90's had it thanks to the marketing of fat-free everything), I thought that the only way to make pizza healthier was to elimate the fat in it by topping it with fat-free cheese.
