Surprise Recipe Swap: Morsels of Life

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on May 20, 2013

I am so excited to be participating in my third Surprise Recipe Swap . Each month Jutta from Hungry Little Girl is hosting a Surprise Recipe Swap, participants are assigned a blog and they then choose a recipe to make and write about in a blog post. This month I was assigned the Morsels of Life blog. This food blog has a large selection of all types of recipes and has the cooking philosophy of using everyday materials that are easy to prepare. After studying all the recipes I narrowed it down to three recipes Honey Lemon Chicken, Cranberry Glazed Meatballs and White Pizza. In the end, I choose the Cranberry Glazed Meatballs and I am sure glad I did because they were so tasty and very easy too. Take some time and explore the recipe collection at Morsels of Life.

  1. Such an intriguing title! I love cranberries on their own but haven’t paired them with meats. I’ll be trying this out soon!

  2. I totally love my meatballs with cranberry sauce (the first time I heard of it was at IKEA lol). The addition of Ricotta cheese is great, I will try it too!

  3. These meatballs sound yummy and easy! Definitely pinning to give them a try soon!

  4. Glad to hear you liked these cranberry meatballs! I’m definitely a fan of the quick and easy. 🙂
