This is a great recipe. I wish I could have tried the truffle oil, but there is not one store in Maple Ridge that stocks it.

So glad the recipe was great! We will have truffle oil at our new Farm Market in Maple Ridge when it opens this Spring 🙂

Great recipe! Very tasty! Had on hand,extra virgin olive oil flavoured with truffle.
Pure truffle oil would definitely enhance the flavour for the “wow” taste.
Meatballs were delicious! Added super greens as a nice side dish and “Red Wine!!!”–longevity!!!

Feel that I need to comment on the stuffed pork-chops in this week’s flyer.
Super tender- Apple almond dressing- to die for!! Verna
