Appetizer Enchilada Meatballs

It’s almost the day of the big game! Meatballs are a fun party food, and it’s always nice to find a new way to jazz them up.  I thought it would be fun to make a Mexican-style meatball dipped in enchilada sauce… Put them on a tortilla triangle, top with a cilantro leaf, and you’ve got Appetizer Enchilada Meatballs!

Swedish Meatballs

I have to admit… I used to not be a fan of Swedish meatballs.  But, my husband was insistent that I find a recipe that I like, because they are one of his favorite meals.  I am happy to say that not only have I found a recipe that both he and I enjoy, but one that is also incredibly simple as well.  And, if you like to keep pre-cooked meatballs in the freezer (like me!), it comes together in less than 30 minutes.  Perfect for a weeknight meal!

Simple Baked Meatballs

First of all, Happy Birthday, Mom!  I hope you’re having a great day, and we all love you so much 🙂

One of my favorite things to keep on hand in my freezer is a giant bag full of meatballs.  They are so versatile.  You can add them to a spaghetti sauce and have spaghetti & meatballs, or Italian meatball subs.  You can add them to barbecue sauce and have barbecue meatballs.  You can make Swedish Meatballs.  This baked meatballs recipe doesn’t rely too much on one flavor, so they can be used for just about anything you’d like to use meatballs in.  You can even throw frozen meatballs in sauces while they are cooking for a super quick meal.  I think you’ll like having the convenience of meatballs at the ready!

7 Layer Taco Cups

Who doesn’t love 7 Layer Dip?  While I love the flavors, I always feel like it’s a little messy to serve.  So, I took some inspiration from my aunt’s sausage stars, and decided to make 7 Layer Taco Cups!  They are so fun and full of flavor.  Your guests are sure to be impressed, because although they look like a lot of trouble, they come together in a snap!

Grandma Carol’s Chili

First of all, Happy Birthday to my little sister!  We love you lots and hope your day has been amazing 🙂

On a cold winter’s day, there’s not much like a pot of chili simmering away for dinner.  Add a side of corn bread, and you’ve got a meal!  It’s an easy soup to toss together, and the longer it cooks, the better it tastes.
