Two Recipe Tuesday

I'm not a gourmet chef. I was a very lazy cook, making the same meals over and over. In order for me to lose weight successfully, I needed to find recipes that were simple. There was no way I could eat baked chicken and salad every night.

As you can see from the title, I've designated Tuesday as the day I will share two recipes with you. One will be one I've tried, and the second will be one I've found online.

One of my family favorites recipe is Meatloaf Muffins. We love meatloaf, but the size I cut for myself is usually much larger than what I should have. So, I make this in a cupcake pan, and allow myself two. Along with my starch and veggies, I find myself fully satisfied.

Hope you enjoy!


1 pound raw extra lean ground beef or turkey
1 green & red bell pepper, chopped
1 small onion chopped
1 box stovetop stuffing
1 cup water
2 large egg white(s) (or 1/2 cup egg beaters)
1 package Taco Seasoning

Mix every thing together in a bowl. Line muffin tin with paper liners. Put the mixture in each muffin and bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until done.

1 or 2 muffins. Great for portion control!

These can also be frozen and microwaved.

I just came across this next recipe while dropping Entrecards. I love salmon, and had made this a long time ago. Unfortunately, I'd lost the recipe and am glad to have found this blog. My entire family loved these Salmon Pockets, and I hope you all do too.

I'm glad you liked the salmon.

Never thought about making muffin-sized meatloaf. That's brilliant!
