Garlic Bread Meatball Bombs

Did you enjoy yesterday’s Connecticut Connection? Great Deli Chicken Sourdough Panini, don’t you think? Me too. As it turns out, today is actually Panini Day. Guess it’s a been there, done that day. Can’t have two panini recipes back to back. Too bad Connecticut Day and Panini Day aren’t one and the same.

Asian Meatballs and Groundhog Day

Did you know that today is National Tater Tot Day? San Francisco usually holds a big Tater Tot Festival on February 2 to mark the day. This year, it also happens to be Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday. While I don’t know for sure if the Festival is on hold, considering that the San Francisco 49ers are in the Super Bowl, I get the feeling the city has something besides Tater Tots on their minds.

What are you Serving for the Big Game?

Maybe it’s the shape of the meatballs peeking out from under the pinched Crescent dough. Maybe it’s the idea of serving meatballs as “finger food”. I can’t say for sure, but this recipe struck me as perfect Super Bowl Food.

Polynesian Pineapple Barbecue Meatballs

My Big Game Day Menu

While Hubby watched the two remaining play-off games, I began the rather difficult task of putting together this year’s actual Super Bowl Game Day menu. (Truth be told, I was hoping it would be Kansas City and New Orleans Saints in Atlanta. How easy is that? Barbecue and Cajun dishes with a southern spin! Didn’t happen, but that’s okay, too).

Christmas Appetizers – And the Winners Are . . .

It seems whenever I am planning a party, or attending a pot luck, I always run into the same problem – what do I make? It’s not a question of what so much as in a lack of ideas or inspiration. It’s more a struggle of narrowing things down to a reasonable amount of foods. There are times when I throw sensibility right out the window, and make everything. There are times when my guys rein me in with a firm “are you out of your mind?”

Bacon-Onion Barbecue Meatballs

“We are having a pot luck”. We’ve all heard them – those dreaded words from a co-worker. It means coming up with something that can be made in advance – or at the very least started in advance, that can be easily transported and that will satisfy a crowd.

Teriyaki Meatballs – Crock Pot Style

One day a coworker came to me on a Tuesday and said “Rosie, we’re having a potluck on Thursday. Bring whatever you like.” Total panic. OMG – one day to plan a dish, one day to make the dish – what to do? What to bring?
