  1. Both tangy and sweet, pleasant blend of spices. I baked this in the oven instead of on the stove top. Made for Aus/NZ.
  2. A good meatloaf recipe with nice flavour...moist and tasty. Mine started to break up a little in the pan, but the mix was a little on the wet side to begin with. I still had plenty of cooking liquor left at the end of cooking time, and rather than waste all of that flavour from the meatloaf, I added the glaze ingredients to it, and reduced it down. Although it probably wasn't as thick and sticky as it should have been, it tasted great.<br/>The entire family enjoyed this ( including a six and four year old!) so can't be bad!!<br/>Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #51.
  3. This is the perfect meatloaf recipe Crafty Lady. We really enjoyed these special little treats. The flavorful was amazing, the mini loafs were moist, tender, juicy and oh so flavorful. I really loved the ease of this dish, it was on the table in no time at all. A great comfort food. Served them with homemade oven chips and vegetables for dinner, and I enjoyed the one that was leftover the next day in a sandwich. Thank you so much for sharing another winner. Into my keeper box this goes.
  4. What a fun easy!! I made in electric skillet as directed and followed the directions exactly as written. I had to double the recipe due to family size and EVERYONE loved it, which is pretty rare! Thanks for an awesome new recipe!
  5. Loved the mini meatloaf, perfect serving for one. I made this as written but scaled way back to make one mini loaf for me. It is so hot right now, over 100 degrees with the heat index, so trying to give the a/c a break by cooking this on the grill similar to the stove method listed, by closing the grill lid. I loved how the bottom got a nice crisp crust but the inside was still moist and yummy!!! Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for I Recommend Tag Game.


<p>Update: &nbsp;I have changed my profile picture in honor of my dear best friend and loyal companion that I lost to cancer on 6/25/11. Maxx was the best dog that anyone could ever hope to have in their life. &nbsp;Until we meet again, sweet boy, you will be forever in my heart and memories. I currently live in the country with two dogs (a 12 pound&nbsp;poodle mix&nbsp;named Suki and a new member to the family, a 7-month old(?) 7.5 pound terrier mix named Angel ). &nbsp; I got Angel from the dog pound a week after I lost my beloved Maxx. &nbsp;Suki and I both needed a new companion to help us cope with our loss. &nbsp;Nothing will ever replace Maxx, but she has helped to uplift Suki's spirit. I am a secretary for a county school board. I love to cook, bake, crochet, paint, sew, read and anything to do with crafts. I was born in Tokyo,Japan. My father was in the Air Force and my moher was Japanese. I love to cook (and eat) a variety of foods from many different nations. I especially like trying out new recipes and experimenting with both old and new recipes. I also love participating in the great Zaar events like the tag games, recipe swaps, and Zaar World Tours.
