    NO... you dobt have to doubt my picture, Sometime I take blurry picture becoz of my camera, I dont use the high pixel camera. how frustrating?! I am not expert in taking picture too. Sometime there is the light on the wrong angle which makes a blur picture . I never take a window display picture. It not hard to cook meatballs and most of my recipes are simple to make and not complicated. I have been cooking for 25 years and cooking is my passion..just enjoy the food...
