I’ve been noticing Julia Turshen’s work a lot lately too, for good reason. Love her voice and style–feel that we’re kindred spirits in the kitchen (not the east because my maiden name is Tirsch). Avocado with maldon salt? You read my mind. Lovely recipe here–great way to lighten the meatballs.
until now, i did not know the ‘name’ Julia Turshen but i’ve loved her work – actually, i think i had an epiphany watching the Spain: On The Road Again series; it was then i decided i wanted to do something with food, culture, storytelling – i loved everything. single. thing. about that series. lovely recipe to boot – and i’m definitely going to be ordering Gwyneth’s book – too many people have said they loved it!
Side note — You got my vote for best food blog on saveur. I’m so glad they recognized your great work – photography, topics, food choices, and your sincere stories that give nods to others and not just yourself (you know how the blogosphere can sometimes get). I love your approach!
It’s hard not to fall in love with meatball and pasta. It’s almost like comfort food but more than that; it’s a way of reminding yourself that you can get through anything with a good meal! :) Love the quiz questions!
This has become my go-to meatball recipe. Sometimes I change it up, using bread soaked in milk instead of panko or adding ricotta. It’s a winner that feels decadent, but still is pretty healthy. My boyfriend also loves this recipe. It’s a total keeper. Thank you for posting!
Yummers…. my significant other wanted meatballs and spaghetti last night (usually a long and laborious process). I was reluctant at first, but he has a bad cold and was looking at me with puppy eyes. I relented and then miraculously remembered this recipe. God it was good and so easy! Thanks, Tim!
