Meatball Marsala

I decided to share another meatball recipe with you to make this a meatball week. These meatballs are awesome because it really gives you the same idea as a chicken marsala but with beef, and to me they feel easier even though the work is similar. There is something so fun for me with making meatballs. The Fudgelet helped make them with me.

Friday Favorites 28

It’s time to check in on a Friday with some links and pictures. How are my Friday fans? What have you been cooking? It’s summer time, so the grill has been on for awhile now.

Carrot Cake version 2

I have made carrot cake before, but not since I lived in Maryland. It has been that long!

My dad had requested it for one of the possible treats I could make him when we visited this spring. I am not positive which recipe I made the first time for him. But this time I pulled from my favorite cake book: Layered. I took pictures with my phone of the recipe to do my best version there. I knew it couldn’t be identical since I wasn’t going to bring cake pans and all this time.

Sooooo…
