Meatballs

Guys I'm super excited because I am sharing my first recipe on my blog! I have been wanting to open a recipe tab on Cynthia's NY Dose for quite some time. This is my meatballs, its a favorite in my family. Its full of flavor, and its made with homemade tomato sauce! Please excuse the poor quality pictures! I'm currently looking for a better camera ;)


This is it....


Lets make it......










 Start with chopping half a small onion







As well as 3 big garlic cloves (who else loves garlic??)





Add that to your ground chuck






Throw a little Herbes de Provence baby!! 








Seasoned Salt







Pinch of Salt (I use Kosher)









Freshly Ground Pepper










Freshly grated Parmesan Cheese (use the good stuff, makes a difference!)








Chopped Parsley








Panko Bread Crumbs










a couple of Eggs










And Mix!!!!! (please do not over mix)







I use a large ice cream scoop to shape the meatballs all the same size 








My mixture made 36 meatballs, At this point put the meatballs in the freezer to firm up a bit before we start browning them. 


You like my extremely old baking pan?? no? I do! I refuse to throw it away hehe ;)








Olive Oil for Browning 








 Glorious sight ugh??











Brown them on all sides.....








Then pour the booze baby!! hehe








I use Fortuna strained tomatoes (love!)









When the alcohol has cooked out pour the tomatoes in.....









Can we just take a moment and look at the color of that tomato sauce!!!! That little bit of red wine really makes a difference. OK,  so I don't really like tangy sauce so I add alittle sugar.







Salt and pepper if needed and throw in 3 torn fresh basil leaves 









I serve it with butter spaghetti, recipe coming soon. Enjoy!

Review


Hey guys! Just wanted to give a quick review on Naturally Fly skin products. They sent me 2 body butters and a salt scrub. I am a body butter fanatic and I have to say that I really like how Naturally Fly's product's make my skin feel. It is extremely moisturizing. I do have to say that the smell for me is alittle strong so alittle goes a long way as far as scent ;) The salt scrub is also a great product, my husband's favorite ;) Overall I would recommend their products.
