Friends, did you know that I started my blog 14 years ago? I cannot believe it. What an experience and a delight to host so many parties in my home, create some delicious recipes for my family, work with some awesome brands, and what a lucky girl I am to have such a loyal following. I feel very blessed! I also started this blog to help those who are reluctant to entertain, to learn more about the art of hospitality.

Hospitality is intentional

For me, hospitality is intentional, something I know I’m called to do, something bigger than myself, and something I’ll keep doing as long as I can. I also believe in seasons of life. For example, when my mom was dying, I remember months of not opening my home to others. I was sad, didn’t feel like doing it, I took a break, and that was all good.

Being intentional with hospitality is important, getting dates on the calendar early enough to plan. My husband and I really enjoy being with people. I know we need them, and they (may) need us. Some are old friends, some are brand new friends. Some people you just invite, and you take the chance that it was meant to be. Each dinner party for us has its own story. And now, living in a new town, it’s taken on a new flavor!

ENJOY, whether you’re making this meat loaf for your family or serving to your guests!

Print Recipe Pin Recipe


  • 1/2 red bell pepper, seeded and coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, coarsely chopped
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 3 pounds ground turkey
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, divided
  • 6 tablespoons ketchup, divded
  • 12-15 strips of bacon, I use Costco’s fully cooked slices


  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Place the red bell pepper, carrot, onion and garlic in a food processor and pulse until the mixture is finely chopped.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the vegetables, turkey, bread crumbs, eggs, salt, 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce and 3 Tbsp. ketchup; mix well. Place the meat mixture in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish (spray with cooking spray first) and, using your hands, form it into a loaf. Mix together remaining 2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce and 3 Tbsp. ketchup and spread on top of the meat loaf.
  • Cover the loaf with the bacon strips, weaving them across the top.
  • Bake uncovered, until cooked through, about 1 hour. Check it near the end and using a baster, remove the melted fat and juices.
  • Transfer to a platter and serve!
