Chili Cranberry Fusion Meatballs and #ChickenDotCA Giveaway

Christmas is less than two weeks away and I’ve been cooking up a frenzy of baking treats, tasty appetizers and prepping for the BIG meal.  When my grandmother used to cook the big meal we’d always say she always cooked enough for an army, including platters of baking goodies and appetizers to lead up to the main meal complete with an array of 3 main meats, several sides and complimentary sauces fresh cooked buns. Now that the tradition of our family Christmas meal has been handed down to me, I love the planning and prep that goes into the big day and all the appetizer get-togethers leading up to it.


One of my absolute favourite appetizers to prepare for company, or to take to a potluck, are these Chili Cranberry Fusion Meatballs by Hubs recipe is quite similar to this and just as tasty. If you’re looking for a printable recipe, head over to

This year is coming to a close and I hope to continue as a Brand Ambassador. Chicken Farmers of Canada has a new look and I encourage you to head over to their website to check it out and take a look at all they have to offer, including innovative partnerships with health brands, like Swim Canada, and more recipes than you know what to do with.
