"THE COMBINATION of onion, carrots, parsley and cheese—plus the tomato-mustard topping—makes this meat loaf unusually colorful. This is an attractive entree to serve, and it has a unique, unforgettable flavor. The recipe lends itself easily to being doubled or halved to suit the number you're cooking for, and it also freezes well!"
When I fix this quick breakfast for overnight guests, they always ask for the recipe. Everyone enjoys the sweet carrot cake flavor and rich cream cheese topping. The pancakes are a snap to make, but you can save even more time by grating the carrots in a food processor.
Inspired by a gift of gourmet salsa. Dianne Koskinen of Baraga, Michigan created her own delightful version that pairs fresh tomatoes and raspberries. "My husband, Craig, and our 3-year-old son, Jordan, especially enjoy this salsa with crunch tortilla chips," she explains. "And I like that it's a healthy snack for all of us."
