BBQ Sauce for all occasions

So for my first post I thought I would tell you about some awesome meatballs we made for the Super Bowl. But first, the reasoning behind this blog. I never really had to cook for myself until about a year and a half ago when I moved to Dayton. I started cooking a few easy things, stir fry, hamburgers etc. and just got into a routine of eating those things. However, for probably the last year I've honed and improved my cooking skills and found I love to do it and am fairly good at it. I could have improved and developed them because of a certain person... but we'll leave that for another time. So I plan to use this blog to share some recipes I've found online, things that have worked for me in cooking and ways I've concocted or enhanced simple recipes.

So the BBQ meatballs. For the Super Bowl we thought we'd make a bunch of appetizers in the spirit of the game. We kind of just created these meatballs which turned out to be quite tasty.

1 bag of frozen meatballs
1 1/4 bottles of honey BBQ sauce
2 large scoops of marmalade jam
1/4 cup of cranberry juice
1/4 cup of brown sugar

Put the meatballs in a crock pot
Mix the BBQ sauce, marmalade, cranberry juice and brown sugar
Pour over meatballs and let cook for about 4 to 5 hours

Simple yet tangy and tasty.
