Good meatballs. However, I tried it once with and once without the cranberry sauce. I'd have to say that without it was preferable to me. I find that even using half of the recommended amount was still a bit too much for me. Other than that, great recipe.

A bottle of chili....I couldn't find one in my store so I just used chili powder. The chili came out alright, but I have a hard time explaining why there is a can of jelled cranberry sauce.

Looks good. Going to make it today, but instead of cauliflower I'm going to use broccoli. Thanks for the recipe!
