Banana bread 2.0 – Winter Lockdown Edition (VG, oil-free)

That’s-a spicy ‘meat’-a ball! Super Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs (VG, GF Option)

As with all things to title a recipe on our blog using a “The Mask” quote seems oddly poignant. Right at the end of the film *spoilers* he ingests a somewhat large time bomb, which promptly explodes, causing him to burp fire and shout: “That’s a spicy meat-a ball”. Now in my world (a dangerous, … Continue reading That’s-a spicy ‘meat’-a ball! Super Spicy Spaghetti and Meatballs (VG, GF Option)
