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
