Why settle for regular meatloaf when you could be having meatloaf studded with bacon and cheddar cheese? These additions, along with White BBQ Sauce, guarantees a deliciously moist turkey meatloaf. This budget- and family-friendly comes from $10 Dinners: Delicious Recipes for a Family of 4 that Don’t Break the Bank, available on shelves (and Amazon) now. You can find cookbook author Julie Grimes’ simple recipe for White BBQ Sauce there (on page 222), or substitute bottled white barbecue sauce from the supermarket.
Fresh Strawberry Sheet Cake
This simple, fresh strawberry cake is the perfect springtime dessert. Besides being wonderfully easy to slice and serve for a crowd, sheet cakes (like this pink beauty) are great for entertaining because they require no special cake frosting skills to look impressive.
Mixed Vegetable Shakshuka
This veggie-packed sheet pan shakshuka is easy to prep and, equally important, an absolute breeze to clean up. It’s a great meatless weeknight meal option, and would also make for an impressive no-fuss brunch entree for a crowd; just serve with toast and a fresh fruit salad.
Creamy Tomato-Vegetable Soup
The amazing thing about this rich, flavor-packed tomato soup? It’s made without using a pot. Rather than sautéing aromatics and vegetables in batches over the stove, all the components of your homemade tomato soup are roasted together on a sheet pan for deep, caramelized flavor in the oven. Just toss them in some oil on your baking sheet, pop the pan in the oven, and the majority of your hands-on work is done. Once your veggies are cooked, you simply puree everything in a blender with a bit of cream. You can pour the soup straight from the blender into serving bowls, and then all that’s left to do is dive on in. For a peak tomato soup experience, serve with a warm grilled cheese sandwich.
Many Onions Pork Shoulder
Don't be intimidated by the size of the pork roast that you're working with; your slow cooker is going to do pretty much all of the work for you. Wake up in the morning, take a few minutes to brown the pork, and then set it and forget it--you'll be on your way to something exceptional.
Gingersnap-Meyer Lemon Meringue Tart
With a gingersnap crust and lemon curd filling, every bit of this tart is bursting with flavor! If Meyer lemons are unavailable, substitute equal amounts of regular lemon juice and orange juice. Garnish with Meyer lemon slices.
