Episodes » Episode 43: Phoebe's Fish Balls!

Welcome to the first of two episodes we shot with the lovely ladies from Big Girls Small Kitchen (did you miss the adorable promo? See it here!). We put together two episodes with these gals because each has a specialty. Phoebe, today's guest star, focuses her talents on savory dishes while Cara, who you'll meet next week, is the dessert guru. Both equally as yummy and equally as deserving of their own episode!

The dish on today's episdoe is a fusion of our two styles: Economical gourmet! Also - it has a funny name: fish meatballs! Fish balls! HAHAH! See, told you!
