Replied to old-fashioned meat loaf- a.k.a 'basic' meat loaf

That's better than the thing that kills me on recipe sites. I hate the reviews that list a bunch of things they did differently and substitutions that they made, along with a very low rating and critical comments.

The first line of the recipe cracked me up. Have you heard about Alaskan giant cabbages? I';m going to need a bigger casserole dish! I had never made it before, but it was requested by a friend that grew up eating it. The recipe was easy to follow and my friend loved it. (I used a normal-large cabbage:)"

Alton never disappoints. I used a meatloaf pan to make the meat. Mine has two nesting pans with holes in the top one to allow fat to drain. It worked perfectly for this recipe. When the meat was done cooking I just put the bottom pan on top and weighted it with some bottled water. It worked like a charm, no need to find a brick. Like many others h"

This was great and a lot of fun. The best part was the Thai Basil {mentioned on the show} and Cilantro. Skip the mint. Only use Thai Basil, not Italian. The rice paper was difficult at first, but then I learned to just be gentle. If it folds on itself a little bit, let it. You won't know the difference 5 minutes later. Get wild shrimp if you can,...

This was so easy and so great. I don't have an immersion blender, so I just used my stand blender and it worked just fine. I love heat, so I doubled the Chipotle and added 1/2 tsp of granulated garlic. YUM! Next time I'm going to try adding a big helping of fresh cilantro.

I loved everything but the thyme, unfortunately it overwhelmed an otherwise perfect dish. Let it rest UPSIDE DOWN after cooking. ""

This was to-die-for good. I watched the show first --can be found in its entirety on veoh-- then precisely followed the duck recipe. After hearing Alton describe the fat as "liquid love" on the show, I wanted to do more with it than just saute greens. While the duck was steaming I rendered some fat from scraps left over from quartering the bird a...

The sauce seems a little complex at first, but most components can be measured and thrown in a bowl WAY in advance, making the final push easy as can be. GREAT flavor. I stir fried some bok choy with the chicken instead of using snow peas, just because that's what I had. I also added a bit of orange juice concetrate to the sauce. It turned out fab"
