One of my favorite things about the holidays is the food. Obviously.

Not just because of all the delicious flavors happening, but because of the fact that food brings everyone together. I love gathering together around the kitchen island and prepping meals with my kids.

Whenever we all get together in the kitchen it seems like laughter and smiles are always bound to happen. My little girls get more confident in the kitchen each time, and take pride in the meals they help to prepare!

    I can’t wait to make these for the Bible study group that meets at our home! I do have some folks (myself included LOL) who are more sensitive to spicy things. Would you say these are very spicy or just mildly spicy?

    I am going to make this for a cookie swap I am hosting. Can’t wait! Quick question- do you use whole cranberry sauce, or the jellied kind?
    Thanks!

  3. This sounds amazing! And like the perfect appetizer for having people over to watch Sunday afternoon football. My fiancee loves meatballs, so I’m certain she’ll be excited about this recipe. I’m really curious to try the sour cream herb dip!

    Thanks for posting Shannon! Cheers!

    I love using meatballs as appetizer… very excited to try this recipe. I was wondering if you would share exactly what frozen meatballs you use. I have tried to many and I hate the ones that have hard tiny pieces in them or just a weird taste to them all together. I mean did you use like Frozen Wal-Mart brand and obviously not the Swedish ones? lol, Thanks in advance for responding, I just love for my food to taste excellento…..
