These organic cheesy lava meatballs are a appetizer to please a crowd!
Ok, so I had this bright idea that I would throw out everything that I don’t use and clean out my home office. There is only one problem – all my cookbooks are in that room and I starting going through each one.
It was written in 1923 for the modern women! As you read the recipes, it tells you how to set the table and what is the best way to make a martini for your husband. How times have changed and then I starting thinking, have they or is it just different?
I may not get my honey a martini but I pack him a healthy lunch everyday of the week. I may not set the table with silver and fine linens but we recycle to live a green life : ) I may not go to a butcher shop but we only eat organic meat. SO after doing some serious thinking of how to treat our loved one in our lives from reading this book (clearly they are instructions on how to be the perfect behaving wife) I decided to make my babe his favorite dish, I guess the books works! So if your searching for the perfect bite check these Organic Cheesy Lava Meatballs.
