Stuffed Meatloaf Recipe with Spinach and Tomato


Meatloaf recipe for dinner is the perfect solution, kids are happy as well husband. Everyone love meatloaf. Whether you make it with chicken or beef you can never go wrong with this recipe. If you does then you definitely made some major flaws while making it.

A meatloaf will prepared with great precision and accurate measuring of ingredient. Anything in access can make the loaf very runny and gooey or if you don’t add moisture it becomes very dry and chewy. So while adding eggs, chicken stock you have to make sure it’s added under precision. Nevertheless, a meatloaf does need some practice and experience.

I remember I always seek for some secret tips and tricks from my grandmother, mother and aunts while making any authentic recipe. Meatloaf recipe is one of the traditional recipe that is prepared from centuries in many families. And it’s not even surprising that some on the ingredients and spices changes as the place changes and so does the flavors and taste too.

A classic meatloaf is prepared in plenty of ways whether you make a whole loaf in a baking tray or make mini loafs and for that matters meatloaf in cupcakes or bite-size are also commendable. But today I am sharing an interesting meatloaf recipe which you can also make in parties. Rather than making a classic meatloaf recipe make a nice stuffed one.

Stuffing could be of anything, like cheese, bell peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, spinach or even any combination of assorted veggies and cheese. So when you have a bite of a meatloaf these ingredients give nice flavor and taste compared to a regular dish. I personally like the combination of spinach, tomatoes and cheese. It’s a perfect hidden spot to make your kid eat veggies. Try kale and chopped broccoli or peas etc. if your kid doesn’t like to eat vegetables.

Nevertheless, let’s start cooking this wonderful recipe –

So, the menu for tonight’s dinner is Baked Fish in White Sauce, Dirty Rice and Baked Tofu Stuffed Tomatoes. To find the recipe of Baked Tofu Stuffed Tomatoes, Click Here.


There are plenty of baked fish recipes that you can make for dinner but personally I like this white sauce baked fish. The flavors are delicate and blends perfectly with rice and stuffed tomatoes. In this baked fish recipe, tender fish fillets are seasoned with herbs and they are topped with sautéed onions and baked in a light, smooth creamy milk sauce and this classic and easy recipe is originally from Colombia's Pacific coast.

In this we also add some thyme, basil and anise herbs that give this sauce an excellent flavor and believe me you will try this recipe again and again for your dinner. I am using tilapia fish for this recipe but you can use any fish of your choice like salmon or cat fish etc. Tilapia fish, as I shared earlier is not just a good source of protein but they are pocket friendly too and it got no-fats in it. So fairly a beneficial deal for everyone. Nevertheless it’s an easy recipe that you can make even in your busy weeknights and since fish take less cooking time, so you are done with the whole recipe in 30 minutes or so.

Easy Cupcake Recipe for International Women’s Day

International Women’s Day is on 8th March. It is an event, which recognizes the achievements of women worldwide and to appreciate the beauty of feminism and courage. There are plenty of reasons to celebrate this day in fact in some countries, International Women’s Day is an official holiday, coincidentally this time international women’s day is on Saturday means you can relax, enjoy your day with your loved ones, do some charity and eat some cupcakes.


In USA, there are some selected bars and restaurants which offer Free Cupcakes for women. There are plenty of small and big organizations which conduct cupcake making competition. With this thought process, I am making cupcakes in three colors and some few easy recipes to go along with these cupcakes. Colors that represents Women’s day are White, Green and Purple.

White is for the Purity; Green is for Hope and Purple is for Justice. So, I will be baking three types of cupcakes in three different colors i.e. white, green and purple. Baking cupcakes is an easy task you can make cupcakes with the traditional method of baking or simply get a box of cake mixture. The tricky part is the icing and mixing the color. In this, white is the simple vanilla icing and later you can mix green and purple color into the same icing.

Nevertheless, I am using the cake box mix to make the cupcakes, here I not stressing into traditional baking or different style of baking but to celebrate the event and to live the motive behind the cupcakes i.e. Women’s Day. Although I am not following the instructions completely given on that cake mix box and have made changes to make the cupcakes more succulent and spongy which will make them more tasty.

Put it inside the hot water or cook it in microwave and dig in. and lastly opt for easy and simple cooking, which saves time and it’s tasty too!
