Recipe for family meals :

Buttermilk Meat Balls

This recipe comes from Tim Everhart who has his own food and recipe website called Down Home Southern Cooking (at it's best) . Tim said:

"My mom didn't give my grandmother any granddaughters to pass the tradition on to, and mom, well, so I got elected. This also included sewing, quilting, etc . . . but the cooking, I just fell in love with it".
