  1. My boyfriend loves meatloaf and this recipe looked appetizing. I have always used a recipe that was very plain, but juicy. I am so happy I tried it out on myself first before serving it to him. It was so incredibly dry. I went back thinking maybe I missed a wet ingredient -- Nope, was very disappointed. After buying the spices and ingredients it called for, I wasted $36.00.
  2. I havent tried this recipe yet but it sounds good. In the instructions it says "slice" but doesnt say slice of what in the pan. Although most would know a slice is bread in this instance. Also, I would highly recommend not slicing as soon as it comes out of the oven, the meatloaf will fall apart. You must let it rest for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
  3. I LOVE IT! I was so intrigued after reading the ingredients that I just had to make it. I was surprised because this seemed a bit strange with cumin, French dressing, barbecue sauce and A-1 sauce, but let me tell you folks, IT IS FANTASTIC!


Even though I am still young (25) Life experince has aged me alot. I learned to cook at both of my grandmother's knees (One southern American, one southern Irish) when I was about five. By ten I started collecting cookbooks and experinmenting on my own. As a latch key kid I cooked for my four younger brothers and sisters. My mom ran a small deli before she died when I was 17 so alot of my recies debuted there. Now I run my own catering Buisness. I am married to a wnderful man for five years now. I am a six year old daughter, sons who are four and three. We are also raising my 14 year old sister and nine Year old stepsister and have a 16 year old foster daughter, all of which love cooking with me. I am writing a cookbook with the hopes that when I pass I can leave my recipes for them My cookbook collection has now reached over 1200. Thank you for trying and reviewing my recipes.. <img src="">
