It’s been forever since I last posted anything, and boy have I missed it.  I’m just not sure what happened. Oh yeah, school happened.  The extent of my cooking has been turkey sandwiches and sliced carrots for the last four weeks. But yesterday, I took a stand!

We were running out of leftovers. It was essential.

So I whipped up some meatballs! And some really delicious blueberry muffins.

And some killer peanut butter and chocolate fudge, which I have managed to inhale incredibly quickly.  I’m not ashamed. It gets me through my geometry homework : )

But those recipes are sure to come soon! I was running out of sunlight for meatball and muffin pictures.

But, seriously, these meatballs are really good.  After my family received a quarter of a cow, we started finding good ground beef recipes pretty quickly.  Now, I make these all the time and they make for endless possibilities. Meatball panini, meatballs on a hoagie, and, the ever famous spaghetti and meatballs.


2 lb ground beef
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp parsley
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 tbsp minced onion
1/2 tsp basil
2 tbsp bread crumbs(I always use panko)

First, preheat your oven to 350°. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl. And don’t be afraid to get your hands in there! Then, form the meat into balls and place on a cookie sheet. Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until there is no pink in the center. The time will change depending on the size of your meatballs. I only got about 20 out of my batch, as they were fairly big. Put your meatballs on a giant plate of pasta and enjoy!
