I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!

Classic Bolognese Sauce

It has three kinds of meat along with a bunch of veggies. It is a meal in itself. But add the pasta and "Mamma Mia !" you'll be looking for seconds!

1 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp bacon fat
1 onion, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1/2 green pepper, chopped
5 garlic cloves, minced
1  1/2 - 2 lbs ground beef/pork/veal mix
2 tbsps balsamic vinegar
2 cups beef broth
3 tbsps tomato paste
1 - 28 oz can diced tomatoes
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp sage
2 tsps oregano
1/2 tsp fennel seed
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 tsp sugar

Heat olive oil in a large skillet and cook the onion, celery, carrot, green pepper and garlic until softened. Remove from pan.

Add the meat to the skillet and cook, breaking it up, until there is no more pink and just slightly browned. Remove any excess grease.

Return the veggies to the pan and add the remaining ingredients.

Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium-low and keep partially covered. Simmer 2-4 hours.

After that time remove the cover and cook on medium-high for 25-30 minutes.

Serve on you favourite pasta.
