I am a member of a club here in Atlanta where every year we cook through an entire cookbook. This year we've chosen "The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook" by Deb Perelman.
So far many people in the group think the recipes are a little complicated but delicious. A few weeks ago I was assigned the Tomato Glazed Meatballs. I had to make them for 60 people, so it took me a little bit of time, but it was worth it. The members of the group raved about them, and I was truthfully very impressed with them and myself ;)
Truth be told, I was not even a big fan of meatballs prior to this experience, but I will for sure be making these again. I made an extra batch for Jimmy and Oliver, and they ate the whole tray.
