I am going to try and post a few recipes, I know that you will at least get one. Lol. More comfort food here for you guys, as I said before, it's a cold and blistery Winter and I love nothing more then a piping hot bowl {or plate} of delicious goodness...gotta work on the moderation though. ;)
I found a couple of recipes on Martha Stewart Living {website} that I found quite appealing and decided to share with you guys.
If you guys think of any substitutes or have tried the recipes, then comment and let me know what you think or if you would change anything about it. :)
Bon Appetit!

Spaghetti & Meatballs

Italian seasoning is a mixture of dried herbs that usually includes oregano, marjoram, thyme, basil, rosemary and sage. You can substitute any combination of those herbs, or just use thyme and oregano.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4

1 large egg
Coarse salt and ground pepper
1 large onion, finely chopped {get that slapchop out baby!}
6 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup plain dried breadcrumbs
3/4 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for serving
8 ounces ground pork
8 ounces ground dark-meat turkey
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes
3/4 pound spaghetti

1. In a large bowl, whisk together egg, 1/4 cup water, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Stir in half the onion and half the garlic. Add breadcrumbs, cheese, pork, turkey and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning. Mix gently. Form into 16 balls.

2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Add half the meatballs; brown on all sides, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon. Cook remaining meatballs in remaining tablespoon oil; remove meatballs.

3. Add remaining onion; cook over medium-low until soft, about 5 minutes. Add remaining garlic and 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning; cook 30 seconds. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in tomatoes and 3/4 cup water. Return meatballs; cover, and simmer until cooked through, about 20 minutes. Remove meatballs.

4. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook spaghetti according to package direction until al dente. Drain; return to pot. Toss with sauce; serve meatballs on top, sprinkled with more cheese.

Sounds absolutely deeeeelish ~ let me know if you guys try this recipe out.
