I never could get the hang of making spaghetti and meatballs without it becoming spaghetti with meat sauce. Every time I tried to cook meatballs in a frying pan they just crumbled into bits. It was embarrassing. I was so glad when my Dad showed me how to do this. This is a simple recipe for making meatballs in the oven, and a few ideas how to use them. Once baked, you can freeze the meatballs individually on a cookie sheet, then toss into freezer bags for later use. Just pull out whatever amount you'll need to feed the crew. Don't be scared about the lengthy instructions. The end bits are ideas for using the finished meatballs. And you know how I like to ramble ;-)
I found this recipe in a cooking magazine that I pick up occasionally. My family loves these with pasta, and they're great in meatball subs with fresh tomato sauce (recipe posted separately). No frying required, either.
This is an easy but delicious meal from the Los Barrios Family Cookbook. The restaurant, Los Barrios, is one of San Antonio's true gems.
This is a recipe which I was lucky enough to adopt, have made it numerous times and love it.
Craving Mexican? Tasty shredded chicken in sauce will leave you craving more. This recipe will make enough to leave you with leftovers! It reheats well too...in fact I think it gets better with time...
This is one of the most succulent lamb dishes you will ever taste. Long slow cooking makes the dish. This is an adopted recipe from the RecipeZaar account, and I am delighted to be the new owner of such a winning recipe. The size of your leg of lamb is everything in this recipe so please use the Zaar measurement converter ( bottom of the page) to calculate your cooking time as if will vary greatly if you have a very small or very large leg of lamb. (For example 2.8 kg leg = 6.1 lb and would cook for just over 6 hours after the browning stage) If you like this sort of meat, then I'd also recommend my recipe "New Zealand High Country Sheep Station Roast Lamb #186000" because it gives a similar result with fewer steps... (admittedly without the excellent gravy though) Since my home country that my DH jokingly calls Kiwistaan has an excellent reputation for Lamb, I will be assigning this one to ZWT REGION: New Zealand.
This is a quick and easy recipe that never fails to please even my picky DDs. Since chicken thighs are usually inexpensive it makes a economical meal. I like to serve these with some type of rice side dish and a green salad.
Cooking the meatballs in simmering pasta sauce will not only add so much extra flavor to the sauce the meatballs will be melt-in-your-mouth tender, you may of course oven-bake the meatballs for about 25 minutes, --- don't be afraid to add in more Parmesan cheese and a little more milk, there is no need to measure exactly, this recipe is pretty much foolproof, leftover cooked meatballs make a wonderful pizza topping just slice thinly and freeze until ready to use ----- these also make wonderful juicy burgers shaped into patties-- for more of my tried and true recipes check out my food blog at www.kittencalskitchen.com
Split game hens marinated in tequila and roasted. COULD BE GRILLED IN SUMMER. Serve with rice. This is for 4 servings, 1/2 hen each, or 2 servings if you want a whole hen per person. Prep time includes overnight marinating.
NOTE: A cut up fryer chicken could be used instead of game hens.
This recipe combines the simplicity of a baking powder biscuit, with the gooey deliciousness of a cinnamon roll. I have been known to double the topping! These rolls are on the smaller side - they will serve 4-6 depending on how much sweet you want.
This was adaptated from a cook book where each chapter was dedicated to special guest - in this case for the cookie chapter it was Mother Goose. When made with whole wheat pastry flour and leaving out the chocolate chips, I also refer to these as "better than Cheerios for breakfast cookies". My kids always loved them, especially with the chocolate chips! You can use smooth or chunky p'nut butter, and quick or old fashioned oats. These are a firm cookie, great for sack lunches. Cooking time is per cookie sheet.
