The First Meatloaf...

Posted by CR on Friday, September 16th, 2011

Dear Blog Reader,

I am a young married person, who rarely finds time to cook. My cupboard somtimes contains the staples for baking needs and seasoning. I always keep things like Ramen Noodles and PB & J supplies handy.

When I do actually try to cook, I try to make things too complicated, in an endless attempt to impress the guests. Sometimes, this concept flops leaving me to call the nearest takeout restaraunt availble.

While talking to a friend about favorite dishes, I came to a realization last weekend. I have never made a meatloaf.

The meatloaf seems to be a food that almost every woman in my family makes. It makes many servings so you can reheat it all week. Meatloaf tastes great left over, and you can put just about anything in it. So with all of these positive things to say about meatloaf, why haven't I baked one?

So let's solve this problem of being meatloafless, shall we?

Step 1: Get a glass loaf dish (Glass bakes evenly, food doesn't tend to stick to it,  and heck - it allows you to take great pictures of your food).

Get your own glass loaf pan on our online store

Step 2: Get a recipe. I sent a tweet to one of our favorite food writers, Cynthia O'Connor O'Hara, The Harried Housewife (she does on-air cooking spots and a column for NBC-WKTV News Channel 2 - Utica, NY).

Step 3: Take inventory of the kitchen, then go to the grocery to buy everything because your kitchen cupboard is looking like a desert island.

Step 4: MAKE IT.

*Wash those hands!

*Preheat that oven to 350 degrees farenheit guys and gals! (FYI: Anchor Hocking bakeware can be used in ovens up to 425)

*In a large bowl, combine ground beef, pork, bread crumbs, onion, milk, eggs, salt, pepper, and parsley.

*Mix well. I of course always use glass mixing bowls. Always use a non-metal mixing utensil, or your hands. I went for the hand option, because my mother told me to. I would like to put it on the record that "I regret this 'hand mixing' experience entirely."

I used our
Square Serving Bowl but we also have Round Mixing Bowls on the online store.

*Pat the mixture into your loaf pan. Don't be afraid of smushing it into those corners, glass bakes very evenly.


*Pop that beatiful meatloaf into the oven for 45 minutes (should be preheated to 350 by now).

*Get to making the tangy sauce for the top! Mix your ketchup, mustard and brown sugar together.

I made the sauce in one of our 7-Cup Round Storage Bowls. This product comes in handy a lot when you have some down time in cooking. Just throw on the lid and even refrigerate or freeze if need be.

*When your 45 minutes are up put a soft pot holder, silicon trivet or towels out on the counter.

*Put the meatloaf dish onto your soft, dry surface.

*Pour the sauce you created onto the top.

*Return the dish to the oven for about 15 more minutes.

Serve up your beautiful meatloaf, it should make about 8 servings. I served myself, my husband and my best friend, then put the rest into little Anchor Hocking glass storage containers for lunches and dinners.

**Side note: I also whipped up some caramelized carrots to go with it. Delicious combo.

I'm sure you're dying to know what we drank with it too, right? We each had a glass of Relative from Joel Gott vinyards, which we drank out of Stölzle stemware.

The Harried Housewife I putting together a new recipe book! You should keep your eyes peeled for it! She is such a joy to talk to about food, we are just sure you'll love her! This meatloaf recipe will also be in the book!

My Sugar Pie

We've been very busy around here at Anchor Hocking, but finally found time to write about our new favorite bakery! We just adore My Sugar Pie, a sweet delight that hails from Zionsville, Indiana.

"The ‘My Sugar Pie’ pie list includes more than 40 different pies--all handmade, with a light, crispy crust that is from owner Kelly Maucere’s mother’s original recipe."

What do we love most about My Sugar Pie? They are green fanatics! They sell their pies in Anchor Hocking glass pie dishes, and give you $1.00 off if you return it to their bakery when you get your next pie. Excellent idea My Sugar Pie!   "Anchor Hocking has been selling high quality glass pie plates for over 100 years. We use only these plates because they are recyclable, produce a high-quality crust, and overall healthy, better-tasting pie. You can recycle this glass plate by returning it to My Sugar Pie for $1.00 off your next pie order!"

  When in Zionsville, or anywhere near there, make the voyage to My Sugar Pie, enjoy their heirloom pies and the oh so chic store. While you're their you can pick up an adorable shirt with their logo on it or even some Anchorware for your kitchen! They carry a variety of goodies from Anchor Hocking, including our TrueSeal line as well as our batter bowls and measuring cups.

Planning a party and not so confident in your pie making skills? Order one and they'll ship it to you! Pies are shipped Monday and Tuesday. So be sure to place your pie order one week before the day of shipment.   We hope you enjoy getting to know My Sugar Pie as much as we have, they are a true gem.

LANCASTER, Ohio (Dec. 22, 2010) – Anchor Hocking is highlighting its 105-year commitment to safety in the kitchen by providing baking safety tips for consumers.

Scooped Up in Artistry

Anchorware Everywhere

While out and about in the Short North area of Downtown Columbus I stumbled upon some wonderful creations in Collier West. As usual Suzi West has presented an extraodinary display of collections and art objects to dazzle the eye.

*Image Courtesy of CR

This time I saw something that was most definitely Anchor Blog material. A female metal artist, Jan Barboglio, has a captivating assortment of creations. One of which is a casserole holder which comes with a piece of Anchorware. Barboglio's holder can be snagged for a mere $148.00, but is well worth it for the metal art enthusiast.

Make sure and check out all of the pieces that Collier West has to offer this weekend at the June gallery hop, or online at
