Reviewed bacon-wrapped meatloaf with brown sugar-ketchup glaze

Aug 17, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

This is the exact recipe from the Cook's Illustrated Best Recipe book. For the person who commented that a reader who used half the glaze at first, then added the rest toward the end and therefore made up a recipe - not really, that is the method that they recommend as well as most others for meatloaf with a glaze.

Spicy!!!!! If you are a person like me who normally orders their Tom Kha or Tom yum Mild from thai restaurants, you will need to cut back dramatically on the red curry paste. I knew going in that I would use less, but I started with 1.5 TEASPOONS and it was far too spicy to taste anything else in the stock, so I had to add another can of coconu"

Reviewed Creamy Chestnut Soup with Porcini Mushrooms and Sauteed Root Vegetables

This is a very good soup. I usually make Emeril's roasted chesnut soup which is different but also good. I added one leek, and the soup definitely needed an acid balance with the rich flavors, so I added the juice of a half meyer lemon which it really needed to brighten up the flavors correctly. "

A completely tasteless version of fried green tomatoes. I even added extra home ground paprika and cayenne. While I typically like Panko for crusting, some taste gets lost without the use of the typical cornmeal. I also thought the dipping sauce was just not a great sauce. I will never make this one again.
