Veggie Turkey Meatloaf with Tangy Balsamic Glaze
Very moist and flavorful meatloaf. This was a last minute deal so I used what I had on hand: one pound of lean ground turkey, two links of uncooked sweet Italian turkey sausage, panko plus 1 cup cooked rice instead of breadcrumbs, 1/2 an onion,a large red sweet pepper, (no mushrooms) which I sautéed until caramelized. 3 minced garlic cloves, 2 carrots shredded, and cheddar instead of feta were added uncooked to the turkey mix along with the listed spices and an extra egg. Tomato paste plus some ketchup (no tomato sauce), along with cayenne and smoked paprika,honey, and balsamic vinegar made for a thick and tasty sauce on top. Even with my sad list of pantry substitutions this turned out great. The meatloaf held together perfectly (I hate crumbly meatloaf), and the sauce turned out smoky, slightly sweet, and with a bit of heat. We had enough for cold meatloaf sandwiches the next day (equally terrific). Yum.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Wonderful crispy around the edges and chewy center. Super quick and easy recipe. Also had a lovely 'cracked' appearance. Noting other reviewer comments, I used 1 1/2 C brown sugar with 1/2 C white sugar, 1 C oatmeal (ground in blender)with 2 C wholewheat flour. I also added the baking soda (dry) to the flour. In addition, I only had two egg yolks, so I added 4 tsp of water to make up for the missing egg white. Bake time of 11 minutes at 350 in my convection oven. After baking I did a very light application of coarse ground salt over the top. Because of the wholewheat flour, they appeared completely 'baked' not underdone. The small bit of course ground salt on top (unbelievably) made the sweetness of the cookie and chocolate chips really shine. It was a wonderful surprise, can't believe I've never tried that tip before. Took them to work, and got rave reviews. This is a keeper!
