The aroma while the meat loaf was cooking was incredible. I could smell all the herbs in the salsa, the onions, the tomatoes … it was all I could do to keep from dragging it out of the oven half-cooked and diving in face-first. It was worth the wait, however. I’ve not had a finer meat loaf. Ever. It didn’t need any gravy, any ketchup or any steak sauce. It was perfect.” KTVU Food and Recipes Section
