Just a touch of Chinese 5-Spice powder added to the meatball mixture takes everything to a whole new taste level. But try the original first. And as with all of my recipes, I encourage anyone who tries them to change them, make them your own. There is lots of room for alterations, a little soy sauce here, a touch of wasabi there. Or maybe serve them up with a good homemade barbecue sauce and put it all over top of some good pasta. I imagine that they would even be great in a chicken broth, as soup, or mixed in with a sir-fry.

So, first try them as is, then make them your own. That way, you can create your own masterpiece. Always remember, a great recipe is just the starting point. Where you go from there is what makes you a great cook, hence the title of my cookbooks, "You Can Be A Great Cook With..."

Looking over the receipes for what I might need at the store, i just notice on the meatball there is a square box for the measurement of salt and in the sauce there is one for the lemon juice.

Those are fractions used on that person's keyboard and font set that didn't translate across the internet to your default font. Fractions and special characters don't always come across as intended. You might have to ask that person to resubmit those values in ordinary numbers.

Yes, those boxes should have read - 1/2 - . Sorry about that.
