italian wedding soup w/turkey meatballs

I discovered Italian wedding (or escarole) soup about two years ago but it wasn’t until I spotted it on my favorite recipe blog that I actually considered making it on my own. P.S. Have you seen the move “Julie and Julia?” Because right now I am to as Julie was to Mastering the Art of French Cooking. Seriously. I can’t stop. Anyway, I was surprised by the simplicity of this recipe. The most time-consuming part was making the turkey meatballs but even that didn’t take me more than 10 to 15 minutes. I’ve been eating leftovers for two days now and it’s just as delicious as the night I made it. But the best part of all, my husband went for seconds! Now that is what I call success.


too much parsley because the amateur in me forgot you need less dried herbs than fresh. my bad.

 hand-rolling meatballs isn’t sexy, you say? just wait. it’s kinda fun. 

i rolled about 50 of these

the excitement that ensued when i realized i’d get to christen my new dutch oven was downright embarrassing.
