Turkey and Quinoa Meatloaf
I've always found meatloaf to be just okay no matter how good the reviews were, so I was actually surprised with how tasty this recipe turned out! I was skeptical about the quinoa, but you don't even notice it. Minus one star though because I did tweak it a bit per other reviews, as well as swapped a few other ingredients to match what I had on hand. I used ketchup instead of tomato paste, BBQ sauce instead of hot sauce ("hot sauce" was a little vague since there's so many different kinds out there with unique levels of heat and flavor profiles, so I went with a surefire thing) and two eggs instead of one. The flavor and texture were perfect. I also found the glaze to be just a bit too sweet and might just replace it straight up with BBQ sauce the next time around (and there will be a next time!). I also like how easy this recipe is to halve, which is good for small households like mine. I'd say that half a loaf could feed three people reasonably. This is definitely my go-to meatloaf recipe from now on!

Sweet Potato Rolls
I halved the recipe and replaced 2/3 of the sugar with brown sugar and used a baked yam, but other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Unlike other reviewers, the amount of flour called for was a little much (then again, it was a pretty dry day). The rolls came out nice and crusty on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Unfortunately, I was hoping for a more yam/sweet potato flavor. I could taste it, but it was very subtle. That said, they looked great and I immediately devoured three right out of the oven! However, I might try to either up the amount of sweet potato (or yam) next time and probably play around with some spices like nutmeg and cinnamon, as well as maybe ad a bit more sugar. Overall, not at all like I expected, but still good.

Quick and Easy Pizza Crust
This was pretty good. I liked the fact that I could make it in a jiffy and without much effort. I did, however, add an extra sprinkling of salt, some garlic powder and a dash of Italian seasoning to the dough, hence the 4 stars. I also used AP flour since I don't have bread flour. I spread the dough out super thin since that's how I like my crust, and it baked up nice and crispy with a slight chewiness on the thicker parts. I will definitely make this again!
