You know It’s just a lot easier to Google meatballs than it is to leaf through twenty cook books looking for a recipe. And a lot of online recipe sites have ratings and reviews that let you know if the recipe is any good before you waste two hours in the kitchen making something even the dog won’t eat.
So I thought as a new feature I’d share all the yummy food links I find each week.
A lot of blogs post favorite links from around the web every week. What does it say about me that mine are all food related?
I made Broccoli Cheese Soup and Parmesan Cracked Pepper Corn Grissini (bread sticks) for dinner one night last week. Two more yummy recipes from Cooking light. They both turned out great. David even liked the soup, and no one could get enough of the bread sticks.
I’m not sure it does any good to use light recipes when everyone goes back for seconds. Oh, well.
The Grissini was fun to make, twisting them into curly cues. They make a pretty presentation standing upright in a jar or glass.
I highly recommend the recipes from Cooking Light. The instructions are clear, easy to follow and the recipes are well-tested. They always turn out right. I’ve made things from other respected cookbooks that no matter how closely you follow the instructions, they just don’t turn out. A lot of Cooking Light’s recipes are available at myrecipes.com.
There’s probably nothing light about this next recipe, but I made meatballs last night to go with pasta for dinner. I used the method from Good Eats’ Alton Brown. He bakes his meatballs. They were really easy, quick and delicious. I did change up the ingredients a bit to work with what I had on hand. I think his method would work with any meatball recipe. Alton Brown’s Baked Meatball recipe is on line at foodnetwork.com.
