This week's featured recipe and tips by:

Sharen Iverson

Culinary Resource Coordinator at Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island

Sharen has been cooking since she was 5, seriously! She had her own garden and was barbecuing fish in the backyard when she was 10. She got into catering as an adult when she served on the board of directors of Public Radio in Alaska. Since 2002, she’s been the culinary coordinator at Town & Country Market on Bainbridge Island. She especially loves cooking Asian and Italian cuisine, and talking with customers at the culinary kiosk. And she loves cooking for her granddaughter, Evelyn, who was born in 2008.

These meatballs are great on their own as an appetizer or served as an entree over rice or one of our many fresh Asian noodle varieties.  Quick Asian-Style Picked Green Beanswould add a delicious tangy bite to your plate.

For a fun twist serve them as a sandwich with sweet rolls and Asian Slaw.

Featured Tips

Meatballs can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer for a quick dinner.  You can keep them warm in a slow cooker with your sauce of choice when feeding a crowd.
