Spinach and Fennel Turkey Meatballs

I think I should first apologize for not having updated this site in a while. I had a baby and the last year kind of flew by. I’ve still been cooking, but a majority of my creations have been posted Instagram with a quick explanation. This might continue for some recipes, so please follow me there to make sure you never miss a beat!

So today I decided to make up a recipe for turkey meatballs. I went with some ingredients I already had in my fridge and had at it.
