The Best Meatballs
This recipe is AMAZING!!! I have been looking for a great meatball recipe and this is it! The base of this recipe is wonderful - it has a great taste and texture. I will change a couple things to fit my family's taste next time though: buy the = parts meatloaf mix meat, use 1 1/2 c. bread crumbs, 3/4 c. water max, 1/4 tsp. onion powder. I substituted Italian seasoning in place of Italian parsley. I used 1/2 tsp. dried minced garlic because that is what I had on hand; it turned out fine but I will use fresh next time. I baked 1 1/2" meatballs in the oven at 400'f instead of frying them. I put them in for 30 minutes uncovered, checking temp at 20 min. I added a dash of hot sauce to the red sauce when heating the balls and sauce up together..

Gingerbread Boys
I did this without the zest and exchanging the syrup for molasses as others have suggested. I was using smaller shapes than a traditional gingerbread children so I reduced the time to 8 min. I made the recipe twice: once so I could grind it in a processor for a crust/parfait layer and once as cookies to decorate the top of the parfaits. My husband who normally could care less about gingerbread kept coming into the kitchen to steal the warm ones. Let me just say the extras that didn't go on the parfaits FLEW off the plate when I brought them to work and everyone was raving about them afterwards (Nice and crisp but still easy to munch on and not mushy)

Cream Cheese Frosting II
Coming from someone who hates cream cheese, this stuff is EXCELLENT! I use 3 cups of conf. sugar instead of 2.
