Andrea’s Country Home Cookin’: The Fans

When I started Andrea’s Country Home Cookin, I never dreamed it would take off like it has. It has went further than I ever thought possible, and it’s thanks to you, my fans. You have shared my facebook page, tried my recipes, purchased my cookbook, read my new column and stuck by me for over a decade. I can’t thank you enough! I had a first a few weeks ago. I received some fan mail! Like not an email, or private message, it was an actual stamped letter. This was pretty special. It’s a nice feeling to know folks read my column and enjoy it! Rita, I will surely give you my meatloaf recipe! This recipe my momma has made since I was knee high. She got the recipe from a friend and it has been a meal we enjoy around our table for years. As I made this Monday night to prep for my column, I kept trying to get a flattering picture. Meatloaf just doesn’t look attractive, but man does it taste good!! I swear I took 20 plus pictures of this meatloaf. As I’m getting these shots my husband is indulging in his meal going “MMMM.” Then, more “Mmmmms.” I laughed and said “Here I sit trying to get a good photo of this meatloaf so it looks good enough for people to want to try it, and you are in the background just raving over it.” He is always so sweet about my cookin’. Plus, my family is used to me getting pictures of food at the table. It’s the life of a food blogger. But I sure hope you like this recipe, and I am sorry I have never made Chili Con Carne. I had to google it, but looks similar to just plain ol’ chili. I’ll be sure to share my chili recipe this fall!

I also want to take the time to thank another fan. This person has faithfully messaged me about my column every Tuesday after she reads it since I’ve started writing for the Webb back in May. She tells me how much she looks forward to getting it ,and enjoys reading it each week. Can’t tell you how much it means to me! Thank you Kathy Robbins! If you love pizza, she owns Pudgies Pizza in Williamsport. One of my favorite pizza places! Their party pizzas are hands down the best! Those little square pieces loaded with cheese. Mmmmm! It’s the only pizza place I actually eat the crust. Stop in and try it, you won’t be sorry. Delish!

Thanks to ALL my fans for your support. It means the world to me!



• *This recipe is for 3lbs. You can either cut it in half, or make two and freeze one!*
• 3lbs of ground beef
• 2 eggs
• 1 medium onion (chopped fine)
• 2 sleeves of crushed Ritz crackers
• About 20 oz of ketchup


Mix all together in a big bowl. If it doesn’t feel moist enough, add a little more ketchup.

Make two separate loaves out of the mix using your hands. Place in a lightly greased glass casserole dish and cover with foil. Bake for an hour and a half at 350. Take foil off and top with more ketchup. Bake another 10 to 15 minutes with foil off.
