I've discovered something this week. I like cooking. My skills - and recipes - are just really rusty. It's going to take me some time to get back into the groove of things. Ask Angel, she was on the phone with me during my first attempt (which was a huge hit with the family!) and enjoyed the entertainment of listening to me fumble around the kitchen. She also answered my stupid questions as I figured out how to make meatballs. :-)
I've been scouring the internet and Pinterest and bugging all of my friends for their go-to recipes. I want a nice stable of usuals so that I can vary our weekly menu. I'm also trying to find different crock pot recipes to add to my repertoire.
So my question today is, do you have a go-to recipe? One that's always a hit with everyone you serve it to? Something that's quick and easy to throw together after a long day at work? I'll start things off by sharing what I made Monday night.
1 lb ground beef
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 glove garlic (crushed) use powdered if you want
½ tsp salt
1 can (8oz) jellied cranberry sauce
1 can (15oz) tomato sauce
Mix well beef, Worcestershire sauce garlic and salt. Shape into 1-inch balls. In large skillet over moderate heat brown meatballs. Add cranberry sauce. Cook and stir until sauce melts. Stir in tomato sauce. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until meatballs are done. Serve with (No Yolk) noodles.
