Personal Notes:
Grandma's meatballs are the best. Mom doesn't have it down yet. But Grandma doesn't measure though. If you can smell the parmesan cheese and garlic, you know you have enough. She puts the mixing bowl in the sink, and just adds water as she mixes with her hands and gets it to the consistency of very light but still holding together and still "rollable". Good luck!!!
