Fall = Cooking and Company

A strange thing happens to me every fall… all I want to do is cook, bake, and have parties. I love inviting friends over for a meal or a buffet of appetizers and snacks. It feels like I do this less often than I would like because of my small house and my busy working mom life. But the desire to host and feed people is always in my heart.

Maybe that is why I feel the need to cook up delicious and simple snacks and appetizers in the fall. Isn’t an afternoon of watching football and munching on hearty snacks just the best? Or a bonfire with friends while wearing oversize sweatshirts and eating piping hot bowls of chili while roasting marshmallows. Or a “friendsgiving” feast a week before Thanksgiving just because it sounds fun.

Cranberry Sauce Meatballs

Yes, the fall season makes me want to cook and feed people I love. Of course, I don’t want to spend all of my time in the kitchen; I want to enjoy the company too! That is why a recipe like these Cranberry Sauce Meatballs is a total winner. Toss a few simple ingredients into a CrockPot and a few hours later you have delicious meatballs in a sweet and tangy sauce. Perfect!

I used frozen home style meatballs (I would not recommend Italian seasoned meatballs for this recipe), a jar of chili sauce, and one can of jellied cranberry sauce. You may also add a couple of tablespoons of brown sugar for added sweetness if you prefer.
