Fresh Pear Crumble Pie

Recently I found myself with a bag of pears all beginning to ripe at the same time. I considered a few recipes but settled on this delicious Fresh Pear Crumble Pie. It was a big hit at our house with adults and children alike. It has a wonderful sour cream layer with sliced pears on top, and on top of that, a buttery crumble topping.

With a few extra pears to still use up, I'm considering making another of these babies. The same recipe made twice in the same week shows what a winner this one is. Enjoy!

Amish Meatloaf

I can't rave enough about this recipe for Amish Meatloaf. It is addicting. Did you know meatloaf could be addicting? It is!

I have tried two sweet meatloaf recipes recently. The difference between the two recipes lies in where the sweet component is. In this recipe, the brown sugar is mixed into the meat, with a basic ketchup glaze on top. My other favorite meatloaf recipe has a pineapple preserve glaze on top, so the sweet factor is primarily on top. I love them both, but if I had to choose just one favorite, it would be the Amish Meatloaf.

Sparkling Chewy Molasses Cookies

Post holiday greetings! I tried out a few new cookie recipes this year. It was a mixed bag of awesome cookies with a few dud recipes. I'll be sharing the great ones here at the blog. First up are these oh so cute Sparkling Chewy Molasses Cookies, which I found at Mountain Mama Cooks. Kelley calls them the "Perfect Molasses Cookie," and I would have to agree, they are perfect!

To get them nice and 'sparkly,' be sure to use coarse sugar, like the Turbinado sugar I used. If you absolutely couldn't get your hands on some, regular sugar would work but it won't be nearly as pretty or noticeable in the finished product. It is worth picking up a bag for this recipe. Enjoy!
