Swedish Meatballs

Now I know there are debates out there whether Swedish meatballs are actually Turkish. Even Sweden is claiming that King Charles XII brought the recipe for meatballs back with him after spending years in a country that was under Turkish rule. Regardless of where these meatballs originated, when there’s a plate of mashed potatoes topped with meatballs that are smothered in a creamy brown gravy and served with a side of perfectly sweet and tangy lingonberry jam, you won’t care where they came from just where they’re going, in your mouth!

Lamb Sausage Pizza

On a road trip through Portland, OR we stopped for dinner at a hole in the wall pizza place, where we tried an unconventional flavor that blew our minds! It was an olive oil base, roasted garlic, mascarpone and mozzarella cheese, and lamb sausage, we knew we had make it at home, and that’s just what we did.Of course we changed it a touch once we started making it at home, we replaced the garlic with caramelized onions, added chives for freshness, and made our own lamb sausage. Now we make this pizza almost every time we make pizza at home.
