So the meatloaf cupcakes didn't go as well as I thought they would. First, let me just say the recipe was delicious, I made gravy as well, yum! So now for those of you that don't know me I'm all about details and presentation. I love to make things look pretty but apparently my kids could care less that their food looks pretty or that it looks like an adorable cupcake. I was all set to take pictures of my culinary masterpieces ( I actually did but the picture was all fuzzy) when my kids started complaining about their food touching. They wanted nothing to do with having their mashed potatoes on top of their meatloaf, actually that's not true, Prestin could care less and just shovels it all in. I have to worry more about him choking on his food than my 16 month old. And they definitely didn't want peas in their mashed potatoes, even when I told them to think of them like sprinkles, NOPE, not happening. Bummed I sat down to eat my lonely meatloaf cupcake. Oh well they ate everything on their plates minus the peas and were very satisfied, Prestin had three helpings! So if anything make the recipe and if you have a growing boy like me make a double batch! And God forbid don't let the food touch each other. So what do you guys think is this a keeper?

On a side note here is a craft that I just finished, it's a coffee filter wreath. It costs less than $5.00 to make! I'm putting together a few crafts for a women's event at our church the day after Thanksgiving. I'm still working on the others but will post them when I finish. What do you think? I'm working on my mantle for Christmas as well and will show those pics when I"m done.


  1. LOVE the wreath. Too bad they didn't like the stuff touching, but at least they did like it and decided it was a keeper.

  2. I'm going to make these cupcakes because my boys would love them! This is just the way they eat, and they always complain I forget to cook peas when I make mashed potatoes because they love to mix the two. Oh, how things change. If I manage to make these cupcakes look good, I'll share photos. Thanks for your post today.


Always happy to hear from you!
