The Best Meatball Recipe

Can be prepared in 45 minutes or less.


1 pound combined beef, veal, pork (must be fresh)

3 large eggs

1 cup grated Romano Locatelli Cheese

1 cup bread crumb

1 clove garlic - minced

1 teaspoon salt


(All mixing is done be hand)

In a large bowl mix beef/veal/pork with eggs. Then add bread crumb, cheese, and salt. Finally add minced garlic in stages. Add a little garlic, then mix. Add some more, then mix. This way all the garlic does not end up in one meatball. Now, it's time to roll up the balls. Average size is roughly 2 inches in diameter. I usually get around 18 to 20
meatballs per pound.

Cooking Recipes in the French Style

The French are known for their rich architecture, history, sports, fashion and cuisine. French cuisine has had an extensive evolution over centuries. The ingredients in the past varied greatly according to the seasons and many items were preserved with salt, spices, honey, and other preservatives. A stereotypical French meal consists of heavy creams and butter. Cheese and wine, too, are an integral part of the French cuisine. The secret to all the delicious French recipes is the Classic French Sauces.

There are different styles of cooking French recipes. The Classical French cuisine consists of the region style of cooking recipes. The Haute cuisine is elegant and rich, made of cream, meat and other fine ingredients while the Cuisine Nouvelle style of cooking recipes is a simple style of cooking involving less usage of heavy cream and other rich foods. The Cuisine du terroir covers regional specialities with a strong focus on quality local produce and peasant tradition. It is somewhat similar to the Classical style of cooking recipes.

The Boeuf bourguignon is the most famous beef stew in France and is one of the famous French recipes. Boeuf bourguignon is a traditional recipe from Burgundy cooked in the winters. The beef meat is cooked in a red wine sauce. Bacon, onions, mushrooms, carrots, thyme (medicinal herbs), garlic and beef stock are essential to cook a good boeuf bourguignon.

Mousse au chocolat or chocolate mousse is a renowned dessert recipe. Most chocolate mousse recipes have two prime ingredients- Chocolate and Egg white. A proper French meal is incomplete without Mousse au chocolat. Mousse means foam in French, referring to the chocolate foam that gives the dessert a divine taste.

Easy Summer Crock Pot Recipes

Summer is a great time for crock pot recipes. It may be hot and humid outside, but you still need to make dinner for you and your family. You can't barbecue every day. The weather won't let you. Sandwiches and salads can be delicious, but sometimes you want a hearty meal at the end of the day. When I come home from work, I don't want to come home to a sandwich. I already had that at lunch time. Ordering out is nice every once in a while, but that can get expensive really quick, especially if you have a large family. With crock pot cooking however, you can make just about anything for dinner without heating up your whole house like your oven does. With that in mind, I present to you some easy summer crock pot recipes for you to try.
