All it took was a couple of recent trips to Ikea and reading the book A Man Called Ove (pronounced Oovay) for me to crave some good ol’ Swedish meatballs! Now, I don’t think I’ve ever met a meatball I didn’t like, and this recipe below is absolutely no exception. My family devoured this one-dish dinner, and it even had my 9-year-old asking for thirds. And luckily, this is another easy one that can be thrown together in no time at all on any busy weeknight. But if you’re really smart, you’ll double it and enjoy the leftovers for lunch! :) Swedish Meatballs Servings: 4 Print Ingredients 1 tablespoon butter or olive oil 1/2 cup onion minced 1/2 pound ground beef 1/2 pound ground pork 1/4 cup whole-wheat breadcrumbs 1/4 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon salt 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 pinch allspice 5 large carrots peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour 1 1/2 cups broth beef, chicken, or veggie 1/2 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon soy sauce salt to taste pepper to taste Instructions In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter.

Dump the cooked onions into a large bowl along with the beef, pork, breadcrumbs, 1/4 cup heavy cream, and spices. Mix well by hand and form into 1 1/2 inch meatballs. Turn the skillet to medium high and add the meatballs and carrots. Cook until the meatballs are brown and almost crispy on all sides, about 5 to 6 minutes. Sprinkle the flour over top and cook while stirring for another minute to allow it to absorb. Pour in the broth, 1/2 cup cream, and soy sauce and bring to a boil while scraping the brown bits off the […]
I am excited to be partnering with Stonyfield on today’s post! They are a great organic company that not only does their best to treat both farmers and the planet well, but also is passionate about helping in the fight to label GMOs. And today we are going to be discussing Stonyfield’s signature product–organic yogurt!!
I think it’s safe to say that most of us have eaten yogurt at one time or another. I know my family has certainly had our fair share. That’s the thing though – most of us just sit down and eat yogurt (or add it to a smoothie), but it’s not always top of mind when it comes to cooking and baking. Maybe we don’t think about using yogurt in recipes? Or know how to cook with it exactly? Well whatever the reason, it’s never too late to start experimenting, which is why I am excited to share with you the following Yogurt Substitution Chart!
And to think, just last week some readers were asking me what they could substitute for heavy cream…who knew. :)
