Shirl's Healthy Sparks Cookbook

Slow Cooker Meatloaf
Good 3.8/5
(25 ratings)

This meatloaf has the best of both worlds: a great crust and a moist interior! The trick is lining your slow cooker and creating a water bath. Trust me, it's worth the effort!

Orange Chicken
Very Good 4.0/5
(134 ratings)

With this dish you get a serving of fruit in every portion. Dice the orange if you prefer smaller pieces and--if you're feeling creative--use a vegetable peeler to create curls of orange zest.
