  1. Would you please share the receipe for crock pot meatloaf. I hate to use the oven in the summer. I do use my crockpot.
    I enjoy your blog, thanks for sharing.

  2. Janice, I make meatloaf just as I would normally but instead of putting it in the oven to cook, I shape it and set it inside my crockpot. I pour some bbq sauce over it and let it cook on low for about 6 hours (this is for a 2lb meat loaf, if yours is smaller it may take less time).

  3. Crystal, I just have to say thank you for being so willing to share so many of your great recipes. I have found so many that I love. Just yesterday I made Nachos for a Crowd and we loved them. They were so good! It made a big enough pan we can have leftovers for lunch today. I love that your recipes are from scratch and frugal too. I too am learning about Nourishing Traditions, so I appreciate reading about some of your ventures with that as well.
    Thank you so much,

  4. Thank you so much for your menu's. There are times when I am at a loss as to what to make. I come to your blog and let your menu's inspire me.

  5. I love your site. I was wondering if you can share why you don't soak your brown rice. In your recipe you had found out why you don't need to anymore but didn't say what you had found. I would love to know. Thanks for your recipes. I love your bosch bread recipe.
