ISO Best darn Meatloaf EVER...PERIOD!

OMG - I used to make James Beard's meatloaf years ago then we moved and lost the cookbook that has the recipe in it. I remember he had a fabulous sauce made with tomatoes that he served on the side. Can you post the recipe? I so wish I still had this cookbook! If you know where I can find a copy - pls let me know. Thanks.

I think this is the same recipe in the Best Recipe cookbook. It is fabulous and tastes even better the next day in sandwiches! I am making this for Superbowl Sunday. Any suggestions what to serve with it?

We doing a Cuban Christmas dinner - any suggestions?

I was thinking maybe some kind of rum/coconut cake for dessert? All I can find online is using a cake mix but I would prefer to make from scratch. Anyone have a good recipe for this?

I really don't want to just serve fresh tropical fruit or guava and cheese. Even though traditional - it is Christmas dinner and I want to make a "wow" dessert if I can. I may just bend the rules and lean towards something "Caribbean" rather than classic Cuban. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

I don't think I'll be making ropa vieja for Christmas dinner but would love your recipe. My mom used to make it - and it was fabulous but she didn't write down the recipe.

Would love your Grandmother's flan recipe - to make for myself! I am half Spanish and my Abuela used to make a wonderful flan. Unfortunately, I never got her recipe. Thanks.

We doing a Cuban Christmas dinner - any suggestions?

Hi all. This is my first post! Love Chowhound and hope some of you can help me with our Cuban Christmas menu. Our guests are real foodies - as are we - so we really want to make this a special dinner. Right now, we are planning on serving Pernil (marinated roast pork shoulder), Cuban tamales made w/Yucca and piccadillo, a fresh tomato and avocado salad.

Can anyone suggest a fabulous first course, side dish, dessert item? Please don't say flan for dessert - my DH hates anything that tastes "eggy".

Thanks in advance - and happy holidays to everyone!
