I love watching The Pioneer Woman on Food Network.  Maybe it’s because I feel like there’s a secret club that we belong to since we both have 4 children.  It’s like she’s already been there, done that since her kids are a little older than mine.  And she obviously knows how to feed a crowd!

All of our kids love watching her show, so we pile up in our bed on a weekend evening and watch the most recent episode On Demand.  (By the way, this is like the ONLY show I watch and I never get the chance to watch real, live TV.  Unless it’s Dora with Allie.)

So since my mom is in town visiting and we love to cook together, I thought this would be a fun chance to try out this new recipe.  And I am so glad we did!  It was wonderful and very kid friendly!  (One of Renn’s favorite foods is meatballs so I knew this would be a hit with him!)  Almost everyone went back for seconds and we don’t have a lot of leftovers…the signs of a winning recipe around here!

Warning…this recipe makes a lot of mini meatballs.  Just go with it!

Here is the link to the recipe…give it a try!
