Reviewed Dad's Meatloaf with Tomato Relish
"I grew up with my mom's meatloaf and loved it--hot or cold, it was a winner. But this?.........this was THE best meatloaf I've ever eaten--moist, flavorful, with a killer relish that I've used many, many times--for other ground meats (my meatballs are SOOOO god now), and just for dipping taco chips.

I've been a Food Network fan for many years--probably long before it became famous. I am a teacher of middle school math and talk to my kids about food, relating the need to know weights, measures, multiplication, division, fractons--you name it, I say math is important if you want to cook. I'm a big fan of Anne Burrell and Ina Garten, among many others. If I had a million bucks, I'd go to culinary school in a heartbeat. After graduation, I'd go back to my students and teach them why math helps chefs! I really would.
If I could meet Anne Burrell and Ina Garten I think I could die a happy guy. I'd give anything to cook my roast pork with them, make my delicious gravy, and serve apple pie with vanilla ice cream for dessert. Oh yeah, my mashed potatoes rock.
All things pork, prime rib, roasted anything poultry, pasta, and good meatballs. I've made up many of my own recipes, and cook savory pastries with meat for my friends at school. My apple pie could beat anyone, I think (my mother's recipe), but I'm open to new ideas for simple desserts.
I guess I'm most famous for my pork shoulder roast with vegetable-based gravy (from the drippings), and my pancetta-cheese risotto.
