Caramel Apple-Almond Crepes

A great dish for dessert or breakfast, these filled crepes are quick and easy to make, full of wonderful flavor, and make any occasion special.

Mexican Meatballs

These savory meatballs are always snapped up in a hurry. They make a nice switch from more traditional meatball recipes and are just as easy - if not easier - to make. If you do not have stale corn bread or muffins, crumble fresh muffins or bread and toast at 250 degrees for 15 minutes to dry out the crumbs slightly.

2 cups day old corn muffin or bread crumbs
1 1/2 pounds ground turkey or beef
20 ounces mild or medium enchilada sauce, divided
4 ounces shredded Mexican cheese mixture

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix together the cornbread, ground turkey or beef, 1/2 cup sauce, and salt and pepper to taste in a large bowl. Form the mixture into cocktail sized meatball and place on a large jelly roll pan or baking pan. Bake for 20 minutes, or until browned and cooked through, shaking the pan a few times to allow the meatballs to brown evenly. While the meatballs are heating, heat the remaining sauce until piping hot. Place the meatballs in a chafing dish, crockpot, or saucepan over low heat. Add the sauce and toss to coat. Sprinkle the cheese on top and serve with plenty of toothpicks and napkins.

Makes 8 servings.
