You’re Cooking for Your Parents

May 1, 2009 by

You're visiting your parents.

Mom is a big foodie who loves great flavor.

Dad is a meat eater who prefers standard fare, and likes his food cooked all the way through. (And perhaps microwaved for a minute or two more, just for good measure!)

You'd like to make them dinner ... something they both will REALLY enjoy.

Boy do I have the perfect recipe for you.  But you have to answer this question first ...

Are you brave enough to challenge your mom's meatloaf recipe?

I know, it's a big feat.  Your dad has been enjoying that recipe for years.  

But trust me, this recipe delivers.  We're talking home run here.

Using corn chips instead of bread crumbs or crackers makes this version unforgettable.  And the chili sauce seals the deal, giving it enough flavor to make the "I cover all meatloaf with ketchup"  eaters, say goodbye to their beloved condiment.

So the next time you're trying to please two different palates, and are feeling brave enough to challenge your mom in the kitchen,  get ready to knock it out of the park. You've got the perfect recipe that your mom will enjoy so much, she won't even care that she'll never be able to make her meatloaf again.

Until our next meal,
