My photo
Having a large Scottish heritage that migrated from England into Canada to Maine and other states. I am from a family of 9. Six girls and 3 boys. My dad died young when I was about 8 years old. I have 4 children and 3 step children with the great joy of 20 grandchildren. I worked in financial institutions and accounting for many years. Now I sew and make lots of stuffed animals and many other things. I'm a grandmother that has years of sewing in a wide variety of catagories. Photography has become one of my passions over the years. Nature that God has presented us is one of the greatest to photograph. My family and pets hate to see me with a camera in my hands. The bug took hold at Christmas time taking photos of my children in front of the tree. That became a tradition. Then you have family gatherings, vacations, grandchildren and the list could go on.

Creating Meals that taste a little like heaven gives you a great feeling of accomplishment

Creating Meals that taste a little like heaven gives you a great feeling of accomplishment. Over the years my creativity has become more tasteful. My husband says there is no comparison even with the expert chefs. I have a knack as I get older to not rely on making my meals exactly as the recipe calls for but doing my own thing with it. It is amazing what you can do with a recipe and make it taste delicious but not quite like the original person has done.

I was afraid for years to experiment. What a big mistake that was. My family would have grown to like different things. My cooking is very simple without all the fancy things that chef's do, but are so delicious that you will eat it each meal and be very disappointed when there is no more. I usually can't recreate it the same way twice. This week I made a spaghetti sauce that is out of this world. These are some of the ingredients. Last time I used diced tomatoes this time crushed tomatoes created less liquid.
The problem with that is now I have to make a pizza with it as well. We made one from my spaghetti sauce before and it was so delicious that nothing compares to it now. It was the best pizza we have ever tasted!

The spice combinations I use are so different and varied and I never write anything down. I did use two onions chopped as small as I could get them, a HUGE clove of garlic(I do mean huge), package of sliced mushrooms(I chopped), 1 lb of hot sausage and 1 lb of ground turkey, Mrs Dash original seasoning, Mrs Dash chicken seasoning, sprinkled little more red pepper flakes, black pepper mill to the cooking meats. It turned out wonderful.
