{Dinner: Tangy Turkey Meatballs}

There is one birthday gift that I will treasure for as long as I live.  The gift... a hand written cookbook from my grandmother containing some of our most cherished family recipes!  

The recipes in my cookbook have been passed down from generation to generation, and have withstood the test of time.  Just reading the recipes written in my grandmothers handwriting bring back memories from my childhood.  

 These delicious tangy meatballs are just one of the delicious recipes featured in my grandmothers cookbook!  I subbed in turkey for the ground beef to lighten these meatballs up!   Serve these meatballs with simple steamed veggies and rolls, atop brown rice, or if your a meat and potatoes type person whip up some garlicky red skin mashed potatoes.  Just make sure you have something to sop up the tangy BBQ sauce.
