Well, hello there!

Well, hello there!
Matt & I in Costa Rica over Christmas...So beautiful there!
It's simple. Really. We're a young married couple that loves cooking together. We always try to eat healthy and, if it's simple and doesn't break the bank, we're into that, too! We hope you'll visit often and tell us what you think about what we're cooking! We'd love to hear from you. Drop us a note, a suggestion or a recipe!

Bar-B-Que. Mmmmmmm...
Delightful on a Summer's day (or any Season for that matter).
Delightful on just about any meat. Normally it's grilled or smoked but, in this case I used it in meatloaf. YES. MEATLOAF. This might not be a revelation to some of you but, for us, it was one of those "OH MY GOSH OUR KETCHUP IS EXPIRED, SO LET'S GOOGLE AN EASY TURKEY MEATLOAF RECIPE AND LOOK FOR SUBSTITUTIONS" moments. So, that's what we did. I looked through the first few and, just as I thought "ketchup..." or, some people even got technical and called for "catsup". Grrrrr... I thought I'd be going to the store for ketchup, er, uh...catsup when I decided to click through one more recipe. BBQ SAUCE! Yes! Substitution. We happened to have some Maker's Mark BBQ sauce that was given to us and me-oh-my is it tasty! But any "sweet" BBQ sauce will do. Today's lesson? Use BBQ sauce in your meatloaf. Even if you DO have ketchup.

WARNING: if you use the BBQ sauce in your normal "we'll have leftovers for a day or two" meatloaf (obviously depending on your family size). It will ALL be eaten :)

Matt's take: "Put this in our recipe book. PLEASE. When are we having this again?"

We win.
