I'm back, baby (and with a great recipe to share)!

I know you've heard it all before but... I'm back. Recommitting to the hot and cold relationship that is my blog. Every time I think I'm ready to turn away, I miss writing too much! I miss the community! So, this time, I'm back and I'm promising I'll change. If you give me another chance, I will try harder than ever before to not disappoint. I've got a few (hopefully good!) posts planned out over the next few weeks, and I'll prove to you that this time I mean it when I say I'm blogging again.

For now, let's start off nice and easy. I wanted to share this recipe I made a few weeks ago - lamb meatballs in a spicy tomato sauce. We give it a full 5 Stars.

Layne is the one with the real knack for picking out recipes between the two of us, and when I selected this one it received a raised eyebrow and a tight lipped shrug (Layne-speak for no good). But then he tasted it and took it all back. Score one for Meg! 

My main recommendation is to make twice the amount of sauce it recommends - with all the reducing it has to go through, you'll want more of that delicious pasta sauce in the end! We also added some garlic to the sauce, because what's a tomato sauce without garlic? 

This is definitely making it into the Fletcher Family Cookbook. Especially because our other standby meatball is Geoffrey Zakarain's recipe, and ooohhhh myyyyyy gooooosh. They're delicious - don't get me wrong - but SO labor intensive and time consuming. Plus, these lamb meatballs are baked instead of fried. 

Win. Win. Win!
