More things I LOVE:capturing the beautiful beach images & watching the sunset over the water; to travel-when I get a chance; discovering great new restaurants and trying new things; watching the Food Network & ESPN, my music, and my apple products. Things I wish I could do: travel more; cook everyday; sing; own & operate a bake day. I just don't have the time right now. Family and my friends are the most important thing to me.

World's Fastest Meatballs
This recipe was so easy! I watched the video at work on Monday and decided this is what we were having for dinner. They were so easy to prepare my 6 year old prepared the bread crumbs and egg mixture! It was very flavorful and took less than 15 minutes to prepare everything. Before I knew it, I was pulling out the meatballs from the oven. Delicious! Thanks Chef John!
