Spaghetti night is something most families are familiar with.   Spaghetti is a simple dinner most of us can whip up on a weeknight.  But, when it comes to HOW we make spaghetti sauce, the recipes and methods are ‘aplenty!  If you have been relying on a packet or jar or can of premade sauce, I […]

Vegetable Beef ABC Soup

Eating organic/local, fresh ingredients is costly.  So, it is all the more reason to use every last bit and to get the most mileage out of said groceries.  For example, when I cook a roast I save the drippings/broth in containers and freeze it to use in another dish – like this soup.  I also […]
