Mrs. Davy’s Bolognese Spaghetti Sauce

Mrs. Davy looks after Sam’s house when he’s not there and fills the fridge with meals that Sam can reheat. She makes a mean spaghetti sauce that freezes well.



2 lb lean hamburger                                 5 Tbsp sugar

2 onions, chopped                                     3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce

7 ½ oz can tomato sauce                           2 tsp Tobasco sauce

10 oz can tomato soup                             2 Tbsp each oregano and basil

13 oz can tomato paste                           2 tsp each garlic salt and celery seed

28 oz can Aylmer’s crushes tomatoes     1 tsp pepper

3 cups water                                             5 Tbsp sugar

In large pot, sauté the meat and onion until cooked. Add all remaining ingredients and combine thoroughly. Simmer uncovered 2 ½ -3 hours, stirring often. Serve over spaghetti with Parmesan cheese.

Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies

Both Sam and Mikaela love Mrs. Davy’s chocolate chunk cookies. And she makes a gluten free version too!



1 cup softened butter

1 cup packed brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

2 tsp pure vanilla extract

2 eggs

2 ¼ cup white rice flour

1 tsp xanthan gum

1 tsp baking soda

½ tsp salt

300g package chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 375° F. Beat butter, vanilla and eggs until fluffy. In a separate bowl, whisk dry ingredients by hand until well blended. Add dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix until well blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop by heaping teaspoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire rack to cool. Makes about 30 cookies.

    I’ve got Mrs. Davy’s spaghetti sauce recipe printed out and ready to use. I’m thinking Wednesday, which gives me a few days to get the ingredients. Perfect.
