This is a place I can organize recipes that my family has tried and likes. I did not make any of these recipes up myself - I am terrible in the kitchen and needed a place to help with my organization. Feel free to use this site and comment on the recipes you try!!

Parmesan-Baked Salmon

I got this one from...... wait for it......
Love 'em!

1/4 cup mayo
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1/8 tsp ground red pepper
4 salmon fillets
2 tsp lemon juice
10 Ritz Crackers, crushed

Preheat oven for 400. Mix mayo, cheese, and pepper until well blended. Set aside.

Plae salmon on foil lined shallow baking pan. Drizzle evenly with lemon juice. Top with cheese mixture. Spread to evenly cover salmon. Sprinkle with cracker crumbs.

Bake 12-15 minutes or until salmon flakes easily with fork.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • EASY
  • Yummmmmmy!
  • Something a little different from the norm for us.

Fiesta Marvelous Mini Meatloaves

I got this recipe from Kraft Foods! I just love them!

1 lb ground beef
1 pkg stuffing mix
1 cup water
2 tsp Chili Powder (seasoning)
3/4 cup salsa (add-in)
3/4 cup shredded Mexican style cheese (cheese)

Those are the ingredients to make FIESTA mini meatloaves.
To make Italian use: 1 tsp Italian seasoning for your seasoning, 3/4 cup spaghetti sauce for your add-in, and 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella for your cheese.
To make Mediterranean use: 1 tsp dried oregano leaves for your seasoning, 3/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers for your add-in, and 3/4 cup crumbled feta for your cheese.
To make BBQ use: 1tsp garlic powder for seasoning, 3/4 cup BBQ Sauce for add-in, and 3/4 cup cheddar for your cheese.


Preheat oven for 375. Mix meat, stuffing mix, water, and seasoning until well blended. Press evenly into 12 medium muffin cups sprayed with cooking spray. Make an indentation in center of each with back of spoon.

Spoon add-in evenly into indentations in meatloaves.

Bake 30 min. or until meatloaves are cooked thru. Top evenly with cheese and continue baking for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

My 2 cents worth on this:
  • I am not a meatloaf person and thought this was pretty good.
  • Chris said that this was his favorite meatloaf ever (remember we did the "fiesta" version).
  • I love that I can use the same recipe but change things up a bit depending on the mood I am in.
