chicken meatballs

First post of 2015 =) I can’t believe 2014 flew by so fast.  I have a list of things for new years resolution, thought I’d share some of them here.

1) Spend time wisely.  2) Read lots of beneficial books. 3) Try to live a life of minimalist. 4) Donate everything which I didn’t use over 3 months.  5) Keep up with blogging.  6) Bake more, give more, and keep less. 7) I have so many difficult recipes bookmarked, I want to try at least 1 recipe a month despite the fear of failure.  8) Try at least one food that scares me. 9) Make homemade Ice Cream. 10) Take a food photography course.

Let’s see how things turn out this year, hoping a lot better than 2014!

Moving on…

Omph what can I say about these meatballs? They were sooo rich, creamy, juicy, and oh so delicious!

I found this meal tad bit on heavier side because we had it with egg noodles. I recommend that you try the meatballs with mashed potatoes or salad.
