Chocolate Mint Protein Bars

So, I have another great recipe for you which comes from Portland-based blogger and awesome daughter, Ashley MacQuarrie. When my children were small, they frequently were told that “chocolate is not a breakfast food” in response to their requests for chocolatey cereals from the grocery store. I’m so glad Ashley found a way to make chocolate a reasonable choice for breakfast, or any meal, and this series would be incomplete without it.

Meatloaf with Bacon and Barbecue Sauce

I think a good meatloaf is not too dry, not too soft and most importantly, does not have bell peppers. I tried to make this in my slow cooker a while back, but the results were too soft, I couldn’t make a decent cold meatloaf sandwich with the leftovers. And cold meatloaf sandwich is surely one of life’s small pleasures.

Oatmeal Masks for Beautiful Skin

Maple Bacon Oatmeal

This one is really more of a serving suggestion. You don’t really need a recipe for oatmeal – just follow the directions on your oatmeal container, then add bacon.
