I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Meatball and Onion Stew

Who doesn't love meatballs? Combined with whole, juicy onions, chunky vegetables and all the classic flavours of beef stew and you've got the perfect meal for National Meatball Day!

Ingredients for meatballs:

1 lb beef (or trio: beef, veal and pork)

1 slice white bread, torn in small pieces

1/4 cup milk

3 tsps dry onion soup mix

1 egg

black pepper to taste

1 tsp dry oregano

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar


Ingredients for the stew:

1 tbsp olive oil

1 1/2 cups diced potato

6-8 small onions

2 tsps minced garlic

2 tbsps flour

1 tbsp tomato paste

2 carrots, sliced thick

2 celery stalks, sliced thick along with any leaves

1 bay leaf

1 1/2 cups diced turnip

4 cups beef broth

1 tsp dry thyme

salt and pepper to taste 


Start with the meatballs. Soak the torn bread in milk for 20 minutes then add the meat and mix well. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and roll into 16 balls. Bake in a conventional oven at 350°F on a lined baking sheet for 30 minutes. Or air fry at 390°F for 12 minutes. You can flip them halfway through but it's not necessary. The internal temperature when cooked should read 165°F.

While the meatballs cook, prep the stew. Heat olive oil to medium high heat in a skillet. Add the onions and brown for 4-5 minutes.

Stir in the garlic for 30 seconds before adding the flour and tomato paste. Add the remaining ingredients, cover and reduce heat to a simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour or until the potatoes/carrots/turnip are tender. Finally add the meatballs to the stew and simmer another 15-20 minutes.
Serves 4
