I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Moroccan Meatballs

I always thought you needed an egg to hold everything together in a meatball. But I tried this and it worked. No egg and no bread crumbs either.  Just beef and onion and lots of flavour!

1/2 lb ground beef
1/2 cup shredded onion
1 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp lemon juice
2 tsps paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of cayenne
1-2 tbsps dried parsley
1 tbsp fresh chopped mint

Mix everything together in a large bowl and roll into balls.  I made 18 heaping tablespoon-sized balls. I made them ahead of time and refrigerated them a few hours so there was time for all the flavours to blend together. Add some olive oil to a skillet and lightly brown the balls.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and pop them in a 350 F oven for 10 - 15 minutes.

Serve over rice with your favourite tomato sauce and garnish with some fresh mint leaves and crumbled feta.
