Long-time Langley City Councillor Gayle Martin has turned meatballs into a holiday fave.
“This recipe has been in our family for many years,” she said. “My dad always prepared it, usually when we visited him at his summer place in Birch Bay, where his soul rests. I prepared it for my son when he was growing up. And he now prepares it for his family and my grandchildren love it.”
