I've joined the Instant Pot lovers club! I got one this week and have already used it a couple of times. The first time was just to make baked potatoes, second was to "hard boil" eggs. Today...I stepped it up a notch. I made a real meal...hahaha.
From start to finish, prep to plate....less than 40 minutes.
This cookie tastes like a combination between a shortbread and a sugar cookie, and the best part about them is no rolling! That's right, I said it! NO ROLLING!
I got this recipe from someone on a Facebook recipe group to which I also belong. I changed it just slightly and am now ready to share with you...
Work, Christmas and potlucks...they go hand in hand, don't they? It's the best excuse ever for trying all kinds of different foods. Also, best setting for testing out a new recipes!
So...we had a Christmas potluck at work yesterday. There was only one person slated to bring a dessert item (and it turned out to be a very tasty apple crisp..yum!), so I decided to bring something for dessert as well. Of course, it was getting kind of late the night before, so I needed something that would be quick and easy and not have to bake in the oven for an hour or more.
I did an ingredient check in my cupboards and found peanut butter and chocolate chips and icing sugar....and voila....the peanut butter bar was the logical thing to make.

Directions for base:
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and a side of peas...boy does that bring back memories! Total comfort food meal right there!
There are so many variations of meatloaf, but that tried and true version with cracker crumbs soaked in milk is one that I have never used before. Since I have been trying to eat healthier, I decided to try making a meatloaf using that version, but with whole wheat instead of regular soda crackers and sugar free ketchup.
Sadly, I will not be eating this meatloaf with wonderful mashed potatoes...but a nice healthy salad will be a great accompaniment too!
I was born in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia and spent the first half my life there. I became a mom just after I turned 20 and within a couple of years, decided to move from a small town to a bigger city to take advantage of better job opportunities. After a few great jobs, I finally settled in at a legal publishing company. 13 years later, I'm still there.
