Easy Meatloaf
I make this all the time, and made it yesterday for my family, we love this recipe! I make it exactly as is but only use one slice of bread (large slice of whole wheat bread), and for the topping, I prefer more mustard to ketchup ratio and cut back a little on the brown sugar as the ketchup makes it sweet enough. I use the Holy Trinity (onion bell pepper celery a.k.a mirepoix) pretty heavy handed as well instead of just onions. Always a hit!

Wedding Cake Icing
This icing was great, two things though, I think it is important to add a cup of confectioner's sugar at a time to guage how much you want, I was able to ice a whole two layer 9-inch cake with 5 1/3 cup sugar. Also, I subbed shortening with 1/2 crisco butter flavored shortening and 1/2 cup butter. Lastly, I think it needs a few hours to sit, I don't know if maybe this is because of my alterations to the recipe or what but the icing wasn't that great until I let it sit awhile. A few hours after I made it it was perfect and the taste wasnt as sweet as it was at first. I also switched the almond/vanilla around and did 1 1/2 teaspoon of almond extract and just 1/4 vanilla as my cake had a vanilla flavor already.
