Chef John's Italian Meatballs
This is now my homemade Italian meatball recipe; I will never use another recipe. I had no issues with the meatballs being too "liquidy", and there was hardly any grease at the bottom of the baking pan once they were done cooking. I love that he has us cook the onion before adding it to the mix - I don't like crunchy chunks of onion in my meatballs, which is how my mother's were (sorry Mom). This is a great base recipe - add different spices and amounts to your liking. As a side note, I always know I've found a good recipe when my husband asks, "Hey, how'd you make that?!" He even says the recipe is a keeper, and so it shall be. Thanks for sharing it.

Raspberry Pie I
Raspberries are my favorite fruit, but I never had a raspberry pie that I really liked until I made this recipe. I've made it a few times and it has never turned out soupy or runny. My parents aren't big pie fans, but they request this pie at nearly every family get-together. I do a lattice crust, brushed with an egg white and sprinkled with raw sugar. The pie is sweet, but you also get the tartness of the raspberries. I also like to top my slice with whipped cream. I'm actually preparing to make this pie right now for my dad, who requested it for his belated Father's Day cookout. Thanks for the recipe, you have me and my family hooked!

Great Pumpkin Dessert
This is a fantastic fall dessert! It's so easy to make, and it's especially easy to please a crowd with this dessert. I served it with homemade whipped cream. I usually don't like walnuts or any other type of nut in a soft dessert (it's just a texture thing for me), but I thought the walnuts were great because of the already "crumbly" top. Definitely a keeper in my Recipe Box.
