If you haven’t seen Steve’s Original sauces yet, you need to get with the program. Paleo sauces and dressings?! Yes please. When I got this Peach BBQ sauce, I had to figure out how to incorporate it into some of my food without the grill. Aka meatloaf. I love meatloaf. But I don’t love the almond flour that’s often in paleo meatloaf. So I removed the nuts and eggs, and just added more veggies. So this meatloaf doesn’t stand up perfectly when you slice into it, but it tastes delicious. Just trust me, and eat it. Asap.

I am so frustrated. The only thing I want out of life is to smell like clean laundry. And I wash my clothes more than you think. I use the good smelling detergent and delicious smelling dryer sheets, and, nothing. I smell like a normal human. I hate it. Seriously, the most attractive thing in a male is when they smell like clean clothes. Not cologne, no thank you. Just clean linens. I love clean linens.

Speaking of attractive males, I have new celebrity crushes. I don’t tend to have crushes (that’s a lie) but celebrity crushes seem more realistic since the men in real life here in Denver Colorado aren’t really crushin’ back. F*ckin’ guys. So my first and forever crush is John Krasinski. If you’re not sure who that is, he is in ‘The Office’ and ‘Something Borrowed’ and a ton of other movies. He’s funny. And real funny. And well, he’s dreamy.


And now my new crush is from the new movie ‘Pitch Perfect.’ Have you ever seen that movie? OMG. I LOVE it. Laura and I rented it onDemand twice last week. That’s $10 to watch it twice. Kind of stupid. We might as well buy it. But it just felt right. Skylar Astin is just the great. I freaking love a cappella singing. And he is just the greatest little a cappella actor ever. And he’s funny. Obviously, I’m into funny.

oh stop it Skylar

If you haven’t seen that movie, do it. I’m pretty sure it’s going to have a sequel so you might as well get obsessed with it, just like me. And with John. Gosh, I love you, John.

Wanna see a cool video to wrap up your Friday? Of course you do. Because it’s the video of the gym I work at. And I love my gym. And the people. And people working out in slowmo. Watch it right now!!

4.7 from 6 reviews

  • Yield: 3-4 1x




  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Run your yellow onion and red pepper through the shredding attachment on your food processor to make your onion and pepper well minced.
  3. Add your onion and red pepper to a skillet over medium heat with 2 tablespoons of fat in it and 2 minced garlic cloves. Cook down until onions are translucent.
  4. Then add your cooked onion and pepper to a large mixing bowl along with the ground turkey, mushrooms, 1/4 cup BBQ sauce, 2 teaspoon fresh tarragon, and salt and pepper to taste. Mix well with your hands until you get them well combined.
  5. Add mixture to two mini loaf pans (like I did) or one large one. Pack it down well to make sure everything stays in tact.
  6. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  7. Let rest.
  8. Eat up. I ate mine over a baked sweet potato. Because why wouldn’t you!?

    I’m all about Ryan Phillipe, and have been since I Know What You Did Last Summer! haha

    Clean linen is the most universally pleasing scent, I think. Who DOESN’T want to smell like fresh laundry?!

    tide with febreeze works pretty darn well at making things smell spectacular — add a little bit of baking soda to the washing machine and it works even better. I am convinced baking soda is magic fairy dust – makes your clothes smell great, put it in the rug then vacuum it up and your house smells great- mix it in with your face soap – cheap instant daily facial, with body soap – instant gentle body scrub !!!

  3. Jaime says:

    I’m not seeing where to put the ground turkey in the recipe. Do you cook it with the onions and peppers or separately?

    1. juli says:

      mix it in the mixing bowl with your other ingredients

    John Krasinski recently spent some time in Pgh filming that movie Promised Land during which time he lived in my apartment building. I didn’t ever encounter him in the building but I did see him at my neighborhood cocktail joint, which was apparently THE spot for the cast and crew. He’s just as attractive in person.

    Made it last night. Wonderful. I give it 5 stars. I have suggested to my local Whole Foods that they start carrying Steve’s Originals.

  8. Mary L says:

    I love your take on the meatloaf, but I’m not all-in when it comes to veggies (I loveee eggs), so the traditional recipe calls for brad crumbs, are there paleo bread crumbs? Where can I scoop some up? Thanks!

    1. juli says:

      almond flour is usually used for breadcrumbs

    I cried while watching Pitch Perfect for the 3rd time. In a week.
