I serve this appetizer often during the holidays. It's nice to have a turkey meatball that doesn't taste like you should have used beef. These tangy meatballs can be prepared ahead and frozen, so even drop-in guests can be treated to a hot snack. -Bonnie Durkin, Nescopeck, Pennsylvania

Cooking is something I've always enjoyed...particularly when I'm doing it for people who enjoy eating! This dish is such a family favorite that I'll buy a ham sometimes just so I can make. I'm a city bus driver who likes to swap recipes with passengers. My husband and I have two sons, 20 and 18.

Cranberry Meatballs

Meet the Cook: Since we raise hogs, pork's plentiful at our place. If my husband's able to identify cranberries in a dish, however, he won't eat it. So, the first time I made these meatballs, I was thrilled when he raved about them. Our children - 5 and 2 - also consider them a favorite. And I've had many people request the recipe. But I really knew I had a "winner" when my grandmother asked me for it! -Tammy Neubauer, Ida Grove, Iowa

Classic Swedish Meatballs

Classic Swedish Meatballs

I'm a "Svenska flicka" (Swedish girl) from northwest Iowa, where many Swedes settled at the turn of the century. This recipe was given to me by a Swedish friend. It's obviously a 20th century version of a 19th century favorite, since back then they didn't have bouillon cubes or evaporated milk! I think you'll agree that these modern-day "Kottbullar" are very tasty.
