MAKIN MA SPAGHET Years ago I was gifted a collection of recipes from a dear friend as a wedding gift.  One of them was her delicious homemade spaghetti sauce.  As WE ALL DO I tweaked it over the years.  For example, instead of two pounds of ground beef I use one pound of… MORE

About Me
Military brat and retired Military wife. I seem to have a knack at growing orchids (only a couple have gone on to greener pastures). I also travel up and down the east coast while hubby does his revolutionary war re-enactments (sometimes I get dressed up too)! We like to open our house to shelter dogs. Right now we are down to two; large(German Sheperd) and a medium (cocker spaniel). We lost our small one (long hair doxy) RIP little one.
My favorite things to cook
Big stuff so I don't have to cook every night! Hubby loves my spaghetti sauce and Chili. Meatloaf is up there too. I love trying out new versions of horsy dervs (aka appetizers)
My cooking triumphs
I actually made tzatziki that tasted like the ones in authentic greek restaurants. I wont tell you how many times I tried. Let's just say I tried alot.
My cooking tragedies
I caused hubby's cholesterol to rise by trying to impress him with a different horsy derv (dips and stuff) each night. This was after we got married and I didn't know too many dinner recipes! He is getting better (as quoted in Monty Python and the Holy Grail)
