German Meatballs with Spaetzle


This dish was steaming HOT when I took the picture so it looks a bit hazy. My daughter came out of her room just before we were serving dinner and said, “It smells amazing in here!” It did. The apple cider vinegar and bacon combined with the sour cream and meatballs? Heavenly. My kids are…

Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Meatballs with Rice


This is a remake version of a recipe I used to make years ago. I lost the recipe about 10 years ago and forgot all about it. The other day we started talking about different dishes I haven’t made in a long time and this was mentioned so I decided to try to recreate it….

Meatball Dumplings


My son called these meatball dumplings. He thought they reminded him of the dumplings we get from the local Chinese restaurant except they were Italian. The best part of the meal for me was both of my children and I were sitting at the kitchen table making dinner. My son was rolling the meatballs, I…

Meatball Subs


I am in a comfort food mode if you can’t see it by looking at my last few posts.  I seek out the creamy, savory, flavorful meals I remember from being a kid or that make me feel warm and good inside.  I know food can’t solve everything but right now, it is okay. Sometimes…

Porcupine Meatballs with Gravy


Getting down to the end of the month and grocery day is right around the corner! I do one big shop a month so we are in the last week before stock up day. Trying to use those little last pieces of meat in the freezer and wanting to stretch them farther I added cooked…

Meatball Mozzarella Bites


This time of year having a few easy appetizer recipes in the back of your mind can be a good thing. Whether it is a house full of teenagers, someone dropping by near dinner time unexpectedly or those last-minute party invitations having the makings for easy appetizers is always a good idea. These are hearty…

Slow Cooker Cocktail Meatballs


So, on New Year’s Day we don’t eat a traditional meal.  We snack all day long. I searched through Pinterest for easy and different appetizers for my family to try.  I remember trying this dish about 20 years ago at a party and liking it but when I went to make it I thought it…

Salisbury Steak Meatballs


So we have returned from the last of our summer vacations.  It was a whirlwind tour back to New York to visit friends and family.  We returned home last night about 10 pm from:  in 86 hours we drove almost 2,000 miles in 24 hours of driving time;  slept in three different places; ate at…

Pesto Meatball Sandwiches


We spent the weekend in Milwaukee, Wisconsin for two Feises.  Milwaukee has become our go to city, even more than Chicago.  It is a three and a half hour drive, more with all the construction, but we still love it and are having a great time exploring different areas each time we go. We discovered…

Saucy Asian Meatballs


Lots of ground beef to use right now so I am trying to make different things so the kids don’t realize the meat is the same thing every night.  This recipe for Saucy Asian Meatballs is from Bear With Me at Chef Jenny.com.    I must confess that I followed the recipe just as it…

Spaghetti Squash and Meatballs


So, after our last check ups we are trying to change our diets a bit.  We are not making any big changes but trying to substitute brown rice, vegetables and sweet potatoes for white rice, pasta and potatoes two to three days a week.  Not a huge change but this was one of the first…

Meatball Mediterranean Pitas


I love quick easy meals and this is one of them that my kids love. Pre-made frozen meatballs, small appetizer size, cooked according to package directions.  After they are fully warmed I cut them in half to make them even easier to use. Naan Garlic bread slightly warmed.  YUMMY! Diced tomatoes, onions and feta cheese…
