Yes, the hubby and I are on a diet… and no, this is NOT part of our diet. But I have friends, family, acquaintances, neighbors – and none of those folks are on a diet. So I still have a reason to bake up lots of yummy treats in my kitchen. Baking is therapeutic for me, and I have seven kids, so I need quite a bit of baking therapy to stay sane.
These fun little mini meatloaves have melted mozzarella baked right inside for a flavorful surprise. This recipe makes about 18 mini meatloaves. If you don’t have a crowd to feed (like us) you can still make a big batch and freeze any extras. Freezing instructions are included in this post.

These foam flower magnets will last quite some time, and they will remind kids that when Jesus creates blooms in us, they will last forever.
What do you think of when you think of Texas? Cowboys, rolling tumbleweeds, boots and spurs. You might want to start thinking of Czechoslovakia and delicious pastries filled with fruit jams or savory sausages. During the mid-1800s immigrants from Central Europe settled in the hills and prairies of central and south-central Texas and they brought their goodies with them. Czech foods are a big part of Texas culture.
This fluffy mom of seven has had enough, folks. It’s time to LOSE SOME WEIGHT. I’ve lost weight several different ways before: breastfeeding (especially with the twins), the South Beach Diet, counting calories, food journaling, exercise. And those are all great ways to shed some pounds.
I have to admit, when I first saw the trailer for the Son of God movie… I was a little annoyed. Here was another Hollywood movie depicting Christ as this super good looking guy. It bothers me because I’ve read Isaiah 53:2 “For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him.”
Did you catch that? It just said Jesus (while he was here on Earth) was not much to look at.
Don’t you just wish you could be a kid again? Cartoons, playgrounds, nap times – and of course all the wonderful kid food, like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Scarfing down your favorite sticky sandwich without a care in the world sounds like a little bit of heaven to me. I personally love a good PB&J for an occasional treat. But I’m not a kid anymore, so I like to step it up a notch in the flavor department. The Ultimate Peanut Butter and Jelly from Bourbon & Boots brings the classic kid staple into the realm of fine dining with peanut-pecan butter paired with an amazing triple berry jam.
