My favorite things to cook

Italian Meatballs
I used this recipie for our Super Bowl party in Febuary I made meatball subs with them they were excellent I used more garlic than the recipie called for and used a 1 1/2 ounce scoop to have bigger balls for the subs. Instead of simmering on the stove I placed the sauce after bring to a boil and meatballs in a crockpot on low setting for the 4 hours then switched to warm they stayed wonderful and warm and available to my guests for the entire game I frooze some of the meatballs that did not fit in the crock pot and just used them last week with spaghetti they were still wonderful after being frozen for 2 months. I will definately use this recipie again.

Layered Pea Salad
This was a very easy and quick salad to make I changed it up a little added diced onions and minced garlic to give it a little kick swaped out the miracle whip for ceasar dressing and opted for fresh spinache and romaine lettuce instead of iceberg I used freshly cooked bacon it was wonderfu;
