asian-meatballs-7

It’s meatball week here at Chez SGCC.  That’s because we love meatballs and think they make the perfect Super Bowl nosh.   They’re compact, easy to eat and can be made a zillion different ways.  So, as we count down to the big game, I’ll be sharing some different and delicious meatball recipes for you all to try out.

Let’s kick off with these yummy Asian-style Scallion Meatballs with a Soy-Ginger Glaze.

Last week, I was shopping at my local Amish produce market and I bought a whole flat of strawberries.  Don’t ask me why.  I don’t know what came over me!  They just looked so ripe and juicy and…red.  The next thing I knew they were sitting in my shopping …

This little pasta dish was so darn easy to make that I’m almost embarrassed to tell you about it.  Seriously.  It took hardly any time, much less skill, at all.  But then I realized that it is precisely because of the dish’s simplicity that I had to share it …
