Swedish Meatballs

It's been quite a while since I've shared a recipe with ya'll hasn't it?

I've been so busy lately and also just returned from a two week vacation, hence my absence, but I returned with a yearning for cooking and baking so I'm sure you will start seeing a lot more frequent posts here on this ol' cooking blog of mine.

Tonight's dinner is one of those comfort meals, it just makes us go "yep, we're definitely home".

  1. I have cooked Swedish meatballs and my family LOVES them, but I have only had them mixed with the package mix. I have not made them in a while because I hate cooking with stuff from a package. I am going to try this for sure!! I am very glad I found this blog.

  2. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be trying this one. Just a note though, your Printer Friendly Version does not want to open for me, it tell me I have Insufficient Privileges... the story of my life! I do love the idea of a printer friendly version though and hope other cooking blogs follow your lead! Thanks! :)
