The best revenge, says Meat Loaf, is waiting until the critics have to admit they were wrong. When Meat Loaf's "Bat Out of Hell" album swooped into stores in 1977, with Jim Steinman's swelling production and Meat's towering vocals, critics dismissed it as a cross between bad Springsteen and bad Phil Spector. Sixteen years later, with "Bat Out of Hell II" here, Meat Loaf, 46, reflects with a satisfied smile. "Bat I" has sold more than 15 million records around the world, spawning a gold single in "Two Out of Three Ain't Bad" and a cult hit in "Paradise by the Dashboard Light.

A cheer went up when our second menu was announced: "Wahoo! Meat loaf!" After the success of the first cooking lesson at St. Martin de Porres School in North Philadelphia, I was encouraged - but also challenged by the calculus for the future: I wanted to demonstrate healthy, simple, inexpensive meals, but they needed to be prepped, cooked, eaten, and cleaned up in about 90 minutes. It's the same challenge facing families trying to get dinner on the table every night, with the added dimension of explaining, teaching, and supervising five fifth- and sixth-grade girls.

"Hey Butch! Don't let your meat loaf!" I have heard a lot of bad lines over the counter over the years, but that one, I think, is the worst. And yet, every time anybody says "meat loaf," it comes to my mind. It has been coming to mind quite frequently of late. Meat loaf is "in" again. There are parts of this country, I'm sure, where it was never "out," but in those parts where it was, it isn't anymore. It is most definitely in, and no one could be more pleased than I. Even if it means suffering the revival of a bad pun. A well-made meat loaf can make a marvelous meal not only for family potluck, but with the elegance of a prime rib for guests who are epicures.

Meat Loaf said he would sing the national anthem "slow and dramatic" because he was "a slow and dramatic kind of guy. " Mr. Loaf, who looks a lot like John Kruk, took only 84 sincere seconds to get through it before last night's All-Star Game got under way. Wore a rainbow brocade vest, black shirt, black pants. "I've got a 19-year-old daughter," he said earlier, 90 minutes late for a press conference to plug Prodigy, the on-line computer program he uses to play fantasy baseball.

As an artist, Meat Loaf is the consummate schlockmeister, the architect of bombastic teenage symphonies to passion by the dashboard light. But as an entertainer, Meat Loaf - whose 1977 Velveeta classic Bat Out of Hell has sold more than 13 million copies - is nothing less than a master. He starts at the top and just keeps going over. His wickedly funny 3 1/2-hour performance at Camden's Waterfront Entertainment Centre on Tuesday night - a whole lotta Loaf, by anyone's standards - was equal parts greatest-hits revue and Oprah-style Q&A with the audience.

Vietnam. Jonestown. Watergate. Three Mile Island. The Munich Olympics. Hey, who wouldn't miss the '70s? Right on. History Rocks: The '70s, a two-part special on the History Channel hosted by the soon-to-be-sexagenarian singer Meat Loaf, will be telecast at 10 p.m. tomorrow and Thursday. "Research has shown that TV audiences have an endless fascination with the '70s," says Bruce Klein, 43, the show's executive producer and creator. "It's far enough back that it's historical, and near enough that many viewers lived through it or remember it. It works on a nostalgia level and a curiosity level.

It has taken more than 16 years, but Meat Loaf has finally found his second wind. And his third wind. And his fourth, fifth and sixth, for that matter. Saturday night at the Tower Theater, Meat Loaf - now riding the wave of an incredible comeback - huffed and puffed and blew the house down. During an exhausting 2 1/2-hour show, the 46-year-old singer proved he has breathed life back into his once-stagnant career. And though we shouldn't shortchange his mastery of marketing and his knack for putting across grand rock-and-roll theatrics, it was sheer lung power that proved Meat Loaf's salvation.

Meat Loaf has been more than a little batty over the success of his chart- topping comeback album "Bat Out of Hell II: Back into Hell" and single, "I'd Do Anything for Love (But I Won't Do That). " "I've been walking on a cloud," Meat Loaf said of his place as this year's rock comeback story. "Wow. It's extraordinary. " In the two months since the album was released, 5 million copies have been sold worldwide. "You've watched this before happening to someone else, like Michael Jackson," Meat Loaf said.

The things one does when charity and self-interest combine are undoubtedly often weird, but I'm still kind of surprised at myself for entering the meat loaf contest. Not that there's anything wrong with my meat loaf, which happens to be my mother's meat loaf and is pretty terrific, but it's not exactly the dish I'd choose for culinary competition. Actually, it was clear from the start that the people who thought up this little tourney had their tongues firmly in their cheeks. The bake-off was to be held at a restaurant called the Dew Drop Inn; the "celebrity judge" was to be none other than Meat Loaf (the rock-and-roller)

Grand Guignol rock sung by a 59-year-old guy who could hardly hit the notes should have no place 30 years after its initial, silly triumph - right? Stop right there. Gotta know right now. Before we go any further. Don't you just love Meat Loaf - the big guy behind those histrionics who sold out the Tower on Saturday with classics from not one, but three, volumes of the mad, operatic Bat Out of Hell? The third, released just last year, may not have been up to his outrageously grandiose best.

This is the last in a series of healthy cooking classes at St. Martin De Porres School in North Philadelphia. The five girls were hard at work: Hope Wescott and Maliyah Gregg stood at the sink, quickly and expertly peeling potatoes. Kayla Reid was at the kitchen table, carefully drying each leaf of romaine and chopping it with precision. After selecting the serrated knife, Chamya Davis was efficiently cutting bread for croutons. Jayla Reeves was confidently working through the meat loaf recipe, chopping the onion, sautéing it, measuring out the other ingredients.

I'm always trying to find new and unexpected ways to use ingredients. So as I started thinking about how to give meat loaf a healthy makeover, I wondered if I could substitute kamut cereal for high-carb, low-nutrition bread crumbs? The answer turned out to be a delicious yes! Kamut, a trade name for khorasan wheat, is one of the so-called ancient grains that have become popular alternatives to wheat. It has 20 to 40 percent more protein, and is higher in good fats, vitamins and minerals than wheat.
