I realized early on that Superman was a serious meat and potatoes fella and that he enjoys hearty dishes like an old-fashioned meatloaf recipe.  I never got to meet his amazing Mom but I’ve learned much about her homemaking legacy from the written recipes like meatloaf and shepherd’s pie that she left behind.  It makes me feel connected to her when I use them and I adore recreating dishes from his childhood that he enjoys.

Lately, I’ve been taking these tasty, old-fashioned dishes and making them quicker for myself and my busy, wifey friends.
