In Time For the Holidays – “Grandpa Franks’s Spaghetti Sauce” from Kathleen


It has been awhile since I’ve made an addition to  “Mom’s Recipe Box” and this is one I know my mother would love. It comes from Kathleen Pope, who is married to my second cousin Brad on my dad’s side  (my cousin Betty-Jane’s son). Thus Kathleen is Mom’s great-niece. As I’ve said before, Mom was all about family. She adored hearing about what was going on with each family member. Looking forward to every new recipe, I know Mom would have been so pleased to learn about Kathleen’s blog “The Fresh Cooky” 


Kathleen noted that years back her grandfather had, at different times, owned several Italian restaurants in the Denver, Colorado area. Here’s a bit of what she wrote on her post about “Grandpa’s Frank’s Spaghetti Sauce, ” “Shh, don’t tell anyone, but I’m sharing one of our treasured family recipes. Ohh are you in for a treat….” She went on to say that she grew up on this “robust” red sauce which her mother often made.  To read the post


After the turkey and all the fixings are gobbled up on Christmas Day, and leftovers have been turned into turkey sandwiches or turkey soup, it will be time for a change. Seems like a perfect chance to try this special recipe.  Thanks Kathleen! – Jackie
