We like to think we’re mature enough to resist an obvious double entendre when it presents itself.
But when talking about the new cookbook from the guys behind New York’s popular Meatball Shop restaurants, we seized the opportunity by the balls. The meatballs, to be exact.
For today’s videos, we asked chefs Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow to make three simple recipes from The Meatball Shop Cookbook, all perfect for holiday feasting: Gobble Gobble turkey meatballs (above), kabocha squash salad, and ginger cookies.

Blind dating. Speed dating. Online dating. You’ve tried everything in your shameless quest to find the perfect man.
So you’ll totally relate to When in Rome. The new film stars Kristen Bell as an ambitious, relationship-challenged New Yorker who takes a whirlwind trip to Rome. There she defiantly steals coins from a fountain of love, inexplicably igniting the passion of the men who threw them in.
Her new suitors include a sausage magnate (Danny DeVito), a street magician (Jon Heder), an adoring painter (Will Arnett), and a self-admiring model (Dax Shepard). But when a charming reporter (Josh Duhamel) pursues her with equal zest, she’ll have to determine if it’s the work of the coins or the real thing.
Which is still easier than online dating.
