Mom's Meatloaf

I am adding another recipe to the list with my mother's meatloaf. I am hoping that one day I will have all of my recipes recorded here on the blog.

Ground beef or Ground turkey
saltine crackers
salt and pepper
1 egg
canned green beans
margarine or butter

How to:

****just like my mother I used an electric skillet****

Pre heat skillet to 350 degrees

Mix ground beef, salt and pepper, 1 egg and crackers together.  Form into loaf and place in the electric skillet.

Brown on both sides.

Wash and quarter potatoes.  Add them to the skillet around the meatloaf.  Cook for about 5 minutes and turn temperature to 275.  Slice the butter and put in the skillet with the meat and potatoes.

Drain the green beans and add them to the skillet as well.

Cook with the lid on until done.  Depending on the amount it should take about 30 minutes.
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do.  If you make this dish or any others I have posted here on my blog please share it with me.  I would love to hear about it.

Lemon Meringue Pie

Lemon + Meringue + Pie = YUMMY!

I don't know about you but I sure love lemon and what better way to have it during the summer then in a lemon meringue pie!

Here is how I made the one in the photo. I know there are many ways to create this old time favorite but this is how I did it.


1 box of lemon pudding mix (I used instant)
1 pre-made pie crust
3 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tarter
1/4 cup of sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cup milk


Preheat oven to 450 degrees

roll out pie crust and place in a pie pan (I used a 9 inch one)
place in heated oven and bake for 10 minutes. Make sure you poke holes in bottom of crust before you bake it.

Once baked let cool and prepare the pie filling. To do that I mixed the powder mix with the milk and mixed really well.

When the crust is cool pour in the filling mix and put the pie in the refrigerator to chill.

Turn the oven to 400 degrees.

To make the meringue:

Place egg whites and cream of tarter in a clean bowl. Whip together until they start to thicken. Slowly beat/whip in the sugar. Whip in the vanilla. Continue to beat egg whites until they are glossy and can hold a peak.

Spread the meringue over the pie and put in the oven for another 10 minutes to brown.

Take the pie out of the oven and let cool. Once cooled to room temperature chill for at least 1 hour before serving.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.
