Want to make something really special with your kids this Halloween? Roll up some eyeball meatballs that are tasty and fun to eat. Served with your family's favorite pasta, they'll make an easy dinner that your kids will be talking about for weeks. And if your kids aren't excited about green olives, then swap with black olives for a spooky look. So invite the kids into the kitchen and start rolling your way to this ghoulish dish!
Finding meals the whole family enjoys is often a challenge. Kids can be picky eaters — one day loving a meal and the next unable to even look at it. So spending hours in the kitchen tossing something together that they might not even eat is frustrating.
Make dinner fun with a Hawaiian-inspired meal the whole family will love — Pineapple Turkey Meatballs! Along with being a kid-friendly dish, it takes less than 30-minutes to toss together and is complemented with steamed broccoli and quick-cooking spaghetti. Pineapple offers a sweet-and-tangy flavor that coats the meatballs, making them anything other than boring. Bonus points if you can get the family to do a hula dance on their way to the table!

When it comes to Super Bowl Sunday, I like to serve a messy, meaty meal such as burgers, sloppy Joes, or my current favorite, these meatball sandwiches. Layers of marinara sauce, melted cheese, and flavorful meatballs come together beautifully in a lightly toasted brioche bun. Although this can be made with store-bought marinara sauce, it tastes even better when you make your own. Assemble the meatballs and sauce up to a day in advance, then warm while you're watching the second quarter. Interested in cooking this finger-licking good dish? Keep reading for the recipe.
If you are trying to keep warm this Winter and have already tried these 10 essential soups, don't fret, a chicken meatball and cheese tortellini soup will soothe your soul just the same. This is a great weeknight meal since it comes together relatively quickly and takes a minimum amount of effort.
On my first go around, I made the meatballs a little too large, so next time I'll aim for a more bite-sized meatball. Fans of simple chicken noodle soup will be blown away by these chicken meatballs combined with fresh cheese tortellini and delicious broth. This soup is wonderful the night it's cooked and, like many other comfort foods, even better the next day.

Last December, my family started a new tradition: a holiday pub crawl! We met for heavy hors d'oeuvres at a cousin's house, then afterward took a tour of the neighborhood's best bars. It's a casual but festive style of soirée, and since everyone always has lots of parties to attend, friends and family members can stop by for one drink or take part in the entire crawl. When planning the first leg, offer a good quantity of appetizers with an assortment of textures and flavors: serve something cheesy, something meaty, and something seafood. Baked camembert is sophisticated and colorful when topped with sun-dried tomatoes; pair with crackers and bread.
Meatballs are a classic holiday bite, but update them by using ground lamb and exotic spices rather than the same old pork-beef mixture. Tuna tartar on thick-cut potato chips is addictive and irresistible. Head to the store for the rest of the menu; pick up your favorite crudités with ranch dip, charcuterie, nuts, or olives.
