I absolutely loved this cookbook and couldn't wait to try a few of the recipes. No matter what ones I tried, not only were the instructions easy to follow, but also they had pictures for most of the recipes so you could see what the finished product should look like. I found each one to be quite tasty and made me eager to try more. Another thing that I loved was the introduction was so jammed packed with useful information with such things as what the various meats are that you can use, to what the best ingredients you should use to enhance the taste of your meatballs overall. This introduction alone is worth its weight in gold. This is one cookbook that you shouldn't pass up. I assure you that these recipes will be the hit at dinnertime. I feel this would even make a great gift for any cook on your holiday list!
