Claro’s Italian Meatballs

I finished my job at the film festival on Friday, and Saturday I was preparing for the Sunday brunch. It’s been really, really hot in this kitchen, but I’m really excited. I’ll tell you about brunch later, but I wanted to share the meatball recipe I made from Worth the Whisk. It was pretty simple and pretty great.

1. Preheat oven to 375 F. Yup. That’s how that goes.

2. Mix all the ingredients. Still not too complicated.

3. Shape into balls and place on greased pan. Any size you like. I cooked them in a 9×13 pan, but you can use a cookie sheet like she does.

4. Cook between 15-20 minutes, or until meat thermometer reads 165 F. I think my meat thermometer is broken, but I ended up cooking my meatballs for 12ish minutes?

Anyway, simple, right? It made enough for 4 meals, and I cut the recipe in half. Just make some spaghetti and tomato sauce and boooosh, you’ve got an awesome dinner.


A Procrastinator’s Brunch: Success!

Today was my procrastinator’s brunch, which was exactly as it sounds: a bunch of students getting together to eat, play Wii, drink, and avoid work. Thankfully not everyone showed up, because I almost ran out of food! I made chocolate chip pancakes, home fries/potatoes, orange biscuits (kind of a fail), a vegetable scramble for lame vegetarians, and bacon quiche. I wish I had more pictures to post, but this was all I could photograph:

just a couple lonely chocolate chip pancakes left at the end of an epic brunch. but then they were eaten.

If you’re tired of doing work, I suggest you host an afternoon brunch. Everyone loves eating, especially after a night of partying and before they attempt to start doing work. I invited 84 people, and 16 people came (30 RSVP’ed yes). I’m glad, though, because I don’t know if I could’ve handled more. The recipe I’m posting from this is for the bacon quiche, because it’s so simple, and disappeared almost as soon as I put it out!

My Brunch for Procrastinators

In the chaos that is my senior year, I decided a couple weeks ago that I would host a procrastinator’s brunch on October 11th. I had a couple reasons. First, I wanted to invite everyone in my class in the Photography & Imaging department because I don’t know most of them very well, and since it’s senior year, I thought it may be a nice gesture. Second, I love looking at recipes and baking to avoid work. And that’s what I’ve been doing today instead of homework. These are the recipes I’ve decided on so far:

– Orange biscuits. I found and made this recipe on the fly thanks to CookingByNumbers. They went over well, and since they’re so simple and delicious, I decided they’d work.
– Chocolate chip pancakes. Pancakes are, for the most part, universally liked. I would also say the same about chocolate chips.
– Shirred eggs. This is a recipe I have never made before. I had shirred eggs for the first time at Sonsie in Boston. My waiter described them as the Irish’s cure for a terrible hangover. Sounds perfect for a late brunch for college students.
– Bacon Quiche. My mom would make this for our first days of school and any other time she felt like it. Quite a treat, and super easy to make.

I’ll also have some fruit, other egg options, maybe toast, and maybe sausage or bacon. Suggestions?
