The actress, who plays Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan on the CBS police drama, is definitely a fan of her mother’s Swedish meatballs.

She shared this recipe as part of The Blue Bloods Cookbook, which is discussed in the interview. Take a look at Moynahan and some other stars of the show talking about their holiday favorites beyond food.

‘Blue Bloods’ Actress Gets Busy Creating Some New Wine For Solid Cause

One thing fans of Blue Bloods actress Bridget Moynahan do know is that she is quite supportive of a number of social causes.

She, though, is taking it a step further by working with a Napa Valley winery.

Moynahan wrote the following for an Oct. 25 tweet: “I’ve teamed up with @ONEHOPEWINE to create a curated pack of wine to support #ebmrf and EB Awareness Week. Your purchase will help children and families living with EB.”

What is EB, you are asking? It stands for Epidermolysis Bullosa. This actually is a cluster of rare diseases that can seriously cause brittle, blistering skin on a person’s body. Sufferers of EB can break out in blisters from heat, rubbing, scratching, adhesive tape, or an abrasion.

That information comes from the Mayo Clinic.

Outsiders, EB is usually inherited and manifests in infancy or early childhood. Some people do develop this in adolescence.
