With the holiday season coming up around the corner, we’re all planning for potlucks, hosting friends and family for dinner, and thinking about all of the delicious recipes we’ll be creating during the most festive time of the year. My entire goal around holiday cooking is to find recipes that are easy to make and will be enjoyed by the entire family. The boys in my house aren’t SUPER picky eaters, but I know what they like and at this time of year, I love being able to make some of their favorites!

Since SIMPLE recipes are high on my priority list, with everything else that needs to get done throughout the holidays, especially as we come up on Thanksgiving, I’ve been thinking about more and more meals and appetizers that can be cooked up in one pot.

For Thanksgiving this year, as a little snack before dinner, I’m going to be serving one-pot BBQ meatballs made with Sweet Honey and Molasses Barbecue Sauce. Delicious sweet honey and thick, flavorful molasses, make for an incredibly rich taste, perfect for pairing with meatballs.
