If there is one thing I've learned from watching Barefoot Contessa, it's that Jeffrey (Mr. Garten) loves a good roasted chicken. That and butter makes everything better.

Smitten Kitchen's Sesame-Spiced Turkey Meatballs + Smashed Chickpea Salad

Every home cook needs a few meatball recipes in their arsenal. While I love traditional turkey meatballs with red sauce, Smitten Kitchen's mediterranean version has taken over the top spot. These nuggets of turkey are combined with sesame seed and spices to recreate one of my favorite vegetarian treats - falafel.

Their out-of-this-world sausage also comes with a 2 hour wait. So here I am. Sunday morning, craving Plow, without the patience to sit on the curb in Potrero Hill for a good chunk of my morning. I decided to take the bull by the horns and make my own version of Plow's delectable sausage patties with ingredients I had at home.
