Homey, Cajun meatball stew is life!

Cajun Meatball Stew

Cajun meatball stew: Not many foods make me feel…homey…you know what I mean, quite like Cajun meatball stew does. I’m not sure how many of you are familiar with the dish, but very simply, it’s meatballs and veggies cooked and simmered in a luscious, dark roux. I heard you groan when I said dark roux. No, don’t even. Just stop. Making a dark roux is very easy if you make an oven roux or look, just buy it in a jar guys. There is no shame in that. I make a double batch (or triple) in the oven and freeze…

Pressure Cooker Pasta and Meatballs

I will make an effort to settle down with the pressure cooker recipes. Promise! I just love this one though and the weird thing is, I only tend to make this when fall comes.

The ones where you get off of work or the kids have practice and by the time you get home it’s already dark. Yes, it’s still technically the same time…

Smoked Mozzarella Meatballs

So here’s the situation…you gotta go home and feed the fam and you don’t know what to cook, they won’t tell you what they want except “whatever”, and you’re dead tired. But you gotta eat, right?

Easy Bourbon Meatballs Recipe

Dutch oven bourbon meatballs is a recipe that’s been floating around my house for a long time. I guess that’s why I never really thought about posting it. I like to gather up the wifie, the dog, and a bottle or two of wine and put ’em on the fire (not the wife and dog, just the meatballs). You don’t have to cook it on a fire, a stove works just fine. I haven’t tried it myself, but I would bet you could pop these in the slow cooker too. DUTCH OVEN BOURBON MEATBALLS MEATBALL INGREDIENTS 1 medium onion, chopped…
