Reviewed Meat Loaf

Friday, Jul 19, 2013 on

"The taste was great and I liked that the onions were cooked before putting in the mixture. I had problems with it sticking together too. It fell apart into chunks. I followed the recipe except I added a yellow pepper and I topped it with bacon. It was not dry at all. It was nice and moist. Like others here I wish I knew what I did to make it"

Sunday, Jun 24, 2012 on

"To call this meatloaf is a dramatic tragedy (and not of the best variety). I think meatloaf I remember my mother's dried out, flavorless lump of hamburger. I love that lady dearly, but I haven't wanted it or tried it for years. I found this recipe because somebody wanted meatloaf...of all things I thought...yuck. Oh my...yes there is some prep"

"I love Rachel's recipes and when she said she would serve this soup at a dinner gathering, I thought I would do the same. I followed this recipe to the tee. I'm happy I cooked it for myself first. Honestly...I hated this. Others here enjoyed it...but I did not like the smell of the porcinis and the portabellas. I love mushrooms, but this just""

"This was fabulous with burgers off the grill. The only thing I didn't particularly like is the bell pepper. I love bell pepper, but it just did not jive with this salad. I also diced the veggies too small. I think I will keep it more chunky next time. Guilty...I did add extra avocado and had cilantro on the side for those who like it. Num nu"

"I hate to give this such a low review. I made this on Easter and nobody liked it including myself. Even when cooking, it did not smell pleasant. Perhaps it's an acquired taste. I've never had them before. I liked them raw better. "

"I made this for Easter as well. First effort at real mac and cheese (that doesn't come from a blue box). :-) I had the same issue Sharee did. I thought...if I dump all this cheese in a sauce pan it's going to be gloppy for lack of a better term. It was. I got it in the crock pot and I tried to stir it in as much as I could. I was afraid it "

"All the reviews looked so promising. I followed the recipe as it was stated. Really disappointing. The lemon zest totally overtook the mushroom flavor. Sorry...not a fan of this one."

"I saw Guy prepare this and it looked awesome. All the reviews looked great too. I'm sorry, but I don't feel the love for this recipe. I followed it to the tee. I had to purchase a lot of ingredients I did not have in my pantry. But I'm not basing my review based on that. Sorry for all of those who enjoyed it. Perhaps I did something wrong."
