Homemade Meatballs Recipe

Meatballs Recipe

Well, hello! It took me a little bit longer than promised to get my meatballs recipe up.  Sorry about that!  It’s really sad that it took so long because really, the recipe isn’t mine, it’s from Faith Durand.  I mostly just wanted to share it with you and to share my modifications.  You’d think it wouldn’t be so hard to post about that!  Since today seems to be the right kind

A special guest post from a friend and fellow blogger Serena from Bewildered Bug A little while ago I received a huge box of products, courtesy of Kate, from Healthy Shopper.
