Welcome to the highs and lows of 22 weeks out on a lean bulk!
I was recently sent some products from Maille to test out.
I adore Dijon, and have used Maille's products in France and Canada most of my life. I can eat mustard with pretty much any meal, and Maille definitely reigns supreme.
Using the creamy mustard and gherkin pickles (cornichons!) they sent, I made a retro looking meatloaf which was ridiculously easy and delicious.
Enjoy the video and simple recipe!
Turkey Meatloaf à la Maille
- Pack of lean ground turkey
- 2 heaping tsp of Dijon cremeuse
- Handful or cornichons
- Mixed seasonings (21 Seasoning Salute from Trader Joes)
- Black pepper
- Line pan with parchment paper
- Mix ingredients in large bowl
- Press into pan
- Bake at 350F for 30-45 minutes
- Slice and serve! (With extra Dijon of course)
Last night a dream came true. I was on Food Network.
Some of you may remember when I auditioned for Recipe to Riches and got a golden ticket.
Even though I didn't move to the top three, they did like my recipe and consider me. I was honoured to be chosen out of the thousands across the country who submitted their recipe to even go in front of the judges.
Last night, as I snuggled into my sofa, this came onto my screen.
My sexy chocolate bacon bites! A little later, my 5 seconds of fame.
You can find the clip here and me from 1:56-2:03 .
One friend and reader on Twitter caught me, and another on instagram grabbed a screen shot. My night was made!
It may be 5 seconds, but it's one thing of my bucket list. I've been on Food Network.
The next basic step is to get my own show, right?
Thanks for all of your love and support. That short little moment made my whole heart sing.
