16oz. box for $7.00
Do you love homemade bread? We know we do, the smell, the taste, the freshness it’s just so good. This Quick and Easy Beer Bread from Wildtree is just that quick and easy. All you need is 12oz of a carbonated beverage (it doesn’t have to be beer) and the beer bread mix. The mix will be lumpy, so don’t worry. This bread is great fresh out the oven. It’s so versatile you can do add ginger ale instead of beer mix in some cranberries or chocolate for a sweet bread.

4.7oz box for $5.25
Need dinner in a rush, then this meatloaf is the way to go. We used turkey instead of ground beef, added soy sauce, a slightly beaten egg, milk and some chili sauce ( you can use ketchup). We mixed everything together using our hands (this is messy but fun, hint: use your kids), made mini meat loaves and put them in a muffin pan and let them cook for 40 – 50 minutes at 350 degrees. Dinner is done!! The moist meatloaf was so good, you could taste the onions, garlic, black pepper and spices that they added into the mix. This mix is pretty healthy because there are oats in it, Yes we said OATS!! So you get to enjoy your meatloaf and not feel guilty about eating it either.
