Crock pot Turkey Meatballs

I feel like people don’t use recipes for meatballs. Whenever I would ask people for their meatball recipe they would be like, “Oh it’s so simple! You just crack an egg into your chopped meat, add some breadcrumbs, make ballies and place them in a pot of boiling marinara sauce.” Regardless of the easy peasy recipes- that don’t actually require a recipe-my meatballs always failed.

Apple, Pear, Strawberry Spinach Salad with Strawberry Vinaigrette

This salad is everything a salad should be- refreshing, healthy, different, and very tasty. The thing that I dislike most about fruity types of salads is the amount of sugar the salad dressings usually call for. It’s so counterproductive, don’t you think? Salad dressings should be as pure and as natural as possible, while still maintaining a deliciously sweet or spicy flavor! If you share these beliefs then you’ll love this Vinaigrette. It has 2 tablespoons of honey and the rest of the sweetness is from puree strawberries.

Double Stuffed Mashed Potatoes

If you are on the actual blog page, I am sure you have noticed that a few changes are in the midst of taking place. That’s right! Polkies is getting a makeover! Wahooo! The change that I am most excited for is the RECIPE INDEX! The recipes on this blog will now be organized according to course, flavor, subject…you get the idea. I am not an organized person by nature, but I do appreciate organization! This has all been made possible by graphic design artist and web designer, Elisheva G., who also happens to be our wonderful neighbor and friend. For all your graphic design needs please email and you’ll receive quality results and excellent service!
