I make Italian food often casually and from memory, but rarely record the recipes. When I made meatballs using this recipe my family instantly asked if I had recorded the steps. I got up from the table and wrote it down while it was fresh in my mind. It has become a favorite treat for everyone. On the down side, my family became "meatball snobs" and no longer order them at restaurants because they will constantly compare my meatballs favorably.
