Hi everyone, and welcome to Meatloaf and Melodrama!
My name is Dee, and I’m the blogger, chief cook, recipe deveoper and photographer behind Meatloaf and Melodrama. I live with my family, which consists of my husband (aka The Hubs), 5 awesome kids and two fur kids, in the Arizona desert.
I absolutely love to create easy, budget-friendly, homemade meals and treats for my family, and in whatever spare time I can find, I enjoy making easy crafts and DIY projects for the home. As much as I love cooking from scratch, as a busy mom, I realize that sometimes, you need a little help. You’ll find a mix of homemade and semi homemade meals on the blog, and you’ll also find a ton of quick and easy one-dish meals. These are some of my favorites! I also love to think of new ways to repurpose leftovers so that my family will actually eat them!
Life with a house full of kids can definitely be chaotic, but we almost always make time to enjoy our favorite family meals around the table. My kids tell me this isn’t done much anymore, but I like to eat together as a family whenever we can. This is where we talk about our days, make plans, discuss current events, argue, laugh and enjoy some great meals. This is also where the family helped me decide to name this little food blog Meatloaf and Melodrama. In our house, there is really never a dull moment!
