  • liasim  on  3/5/2017 at 8:31 PM

  • fiarose  on  3/17/2017 at 9:13 PM

    ooh, any of the cool ones with flavors you would never associate with meatloaf! the chicken curry sounds amazing, so does the japanese loaf with miso and mirin. others i love the ideas of: greek loaf with lamb and feta, jerusalem loaf with sumac and couscous, the chicken eggplant loaf, crab and shrimp loaf muffins, zucchini loaf, kasha loaf, and the shiitake salad! and i love both cookbooks and food writing, so together--perfection.

  • Smartgirls1949  on  3/18/2017 at 6:47 AM

  • auntietina  on  3/26/2017 at 12:33 AM

    I love books that combine stories and recipes, I'll never forget reading an M.F.K. Fisher book and realizing she had lived in my hometown for a time. And I think Bobby Flay's Korean-style meatloaf with spicy glaze sound good.

  • bcarpenter  on  3/26/2017 at 11:20 AM

    I'm interested in some of the more unsual sounding meatloafs, such as the chicken curry masala loaf and the Japanese loaf with miso and mirin. I enjoy a mix of food writing and recipes, as long as there is not too much of the former

  • banba1  on  3/26/2017 at 11:23 PM

    Swedish meatball loaf sounds interesting... I definitely enjoy reading through cookbooks, and my favorite ones have well-written and engaging text.

    Beef, pork and cremini mushroom loaf

  • Katiefayhutson  on  3/31/2017 at 12:35 PM

    Beef, pork, and cremini mushroom loaf. I enjoy it as long as the cookbook is clear that it is presented in that manner before purchasing.

  • imjammin2  on  4/2/2017 at 8:19 PM

    Swedish meatball loaf! And books with both recipes AND food writing are among my favorites!

  • sequoia55  on  4/3/2017 at 1:01 AM

    Bobby Flay's Korean-style meatloaf

  • cookinginvictoria  on  4/6/2017 at 3:01 PM

    They all look good, but I think that I would try Charlie Bird's turkey loaf with farro salad first. I make his farro salad often, and it is excellent. Yes, count me in as a card carrying member of the food writing AND recipe club!

  • RickPearson54  on  4/7/2017 at 8:05 AM

    The Swedish Meatball loaf

  • melmaren  on  4/7/2017 at 10:39 AM

    I'd start with a more traditional-sounding recipe like Annie Miler's home-style loaf with cheddar and parsley, and then move on to some of the ones with more varied flavors...and I love books that combine food writing and recipes! Best of both worlds <3

  • allthatsleftarethecrumbs  on  4/8/2017 at 12:43 AM

    The chicken curry masala loaf with mango chutney glaze sound fantastic. I think every cookbook tells a story in its own way. I have always enjoyed Frank Bruni's writing, so I am sure I would love this cookbook.
