The 12 year-old boy in all of us can’t help but generate a million puns when talking about “balls,” and yes, Mob Wives star Renee Graziano goes there while demonstrating her Grandma’s meatball recipe for My Food Thing on Chow.com. But mostly, she gets down to business with her sisters Jennifer and Lana, and nephew John, to make a meatball worthy of Sunday dinner status in the Graziano household.
Renee doesn’t deprive us of drama even while dishing on her favorite dish. With a nod to her father, who is currently incarcerated, Renee reveals the best way to smuggle meatballs into a federal penitentiary so your loved ones won’t have to miss out while doing time. It turns out you can even bribe a prison guard with these balls. They are that good.
“When you’re sitting around that table on a Sunday,” she says, “you forget all the bullsh** that happened during the week, ” says Renee. Amen.
