Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Chicken Parmesan Meatballs

I found this recipe on Pinterest.  I’ve made some adjustments and we quite enjoyed them!  Delicious served with a little red sauce, some garlic bread and a salad.  These would also go well served with your favorite plate of pasta.  They’re even great just by themselves – or as a perfect little appetizer.
1 ¼ Pounds ground chicken
2 Tablespoons chopped onion
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon fennel seeds
1 egg, whisked
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup breadcrumbs
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Salt & Pepper to taste
1 jar of Pasta Sauce – I like Classico Tomato Basil
4 ounces grated mozzarella
Fresh Basil
Preheat oven to 400 degrees while setting the rack to the upper third part of oven.
In a large bowl, using your hands, gently mix together first 10 ingredients.
Shape into medium sized meatballs (a little smaller if serving as appetizers) and place separated a few inches from each other on a foil-lined baking sheet.
Brush some of the pasta sauce on top of each meatball.
Bake for 15 minutes.  (a few minutes less if you’re going with a smaller sized meatball)
Remove the meatballs from oven.
Spoon some sauce on top of each meatball and sprinkle some of the mozzarella cheese on each.
Broil another 3 to 5 minutes until cheese is bubbly and golden.
Heat remaining sauce in a small saucepan.
Serve meatballs with a dollop of sauce and garnish with some fresh basil.
