Project Description

There is something about good home cooked food that the only place you can get it is in your own kitchen. I have been cooking my whole life, making my own recipes and food combinations that I think are very good together. My hubs gave me the greatest compliment any hubs could give their wife, he said, “She (meaning me) is a better cook then my mom.” That is a very high compliment to any woman. ~ Choo Choo

I love to cook and can spend literally all day in my kitchen making all kinds of foods.  It is a good thing my hubs loves to eat because I am always making new recipes for him to try. 🙂

How I Feel About Food and Calories

I never diet, I do not believe in it.  I do exercise on my trampoline and I do walk 10,000 steps a day.  I am a firm believe you eat what your body is telling you it needs, the things you are craving.  You crave certain foods because your body is telling you its needs them.  I do not substitute what my body says it needs.  I live by this daily.

For me it is easy, because I always have food in the frig for my hubs to heat up whenever he is hungry and most times he will eat whatever I make.

It is very important for you to listen to your body when it is talking to you and telling you what it needs.  Stay away from snacks like chips and pop, very unhealthy.  I never eat anything from a box or a can, do not eat sugar, never drink pop, never eat fast food and in fact only eat out at restaurants very rarely.  I am a very picky eater and prefer to home cook everything, even on special occasions.

Here is some images of my favorite things to make.

My Favorite Cooking Utensils in My kitchen

I have many things I cook with in my kitchen besides my 5 Burner Gas Stove and my Double Convection Oven.

I love to Sous Vide.  It is a great way to cook so many things and I will be adding many recipes for you to try using your Sous Vide.

I also love to Air Fry.  You cannot believe the things you can make in an Air Fryer.  I use mine at least 2 or 3 times a week.

I also love my crock pot (slow cooker).  I use it for certain things but my Air Fryer has replaced my crock pot.


I hope you enjoy our recipe section here.  There really is no greater joy than going to your kitchen and creating a delicious meal for yourself, your family or for entertaining.

Always remember, your ingredients make all the difference in how your food turns out.  🙂

Full Recipe in Details

I have been making the same Spaghetti Sauce for a good 25 years now and to be honest everyone loves it.  My friends text me asking when the next time I am making it or when I am texting with them we always talk about getting together and I pretty much always make my Spaghetti Sauce for them.

It is time consuming, it takes all day long to make. But it is worth it!

  • Cuisine: Choo’s

  • Prep Time: Roughly 2 hours

  • Cooking Time: All Day

  • Total Time: About 8 Hours

  • Calories: A LOT

  • Fat: 0g

  • Carbs: 0g

  • Protein: 0g

  • 3% Ground Beef – I buy 3 LBs

  • 3 LBs Italian Sausage

  • 2 tbsp Fresh Garlic in The Jar

  • 2 Orange & 2 Yellow Peppers Large, Chopped

  • 3 lbs Fresh Sliced Mushrooms

  • 2 Cans Black Olives, Chopped

  • 2 Stalks Celery (You can do just one but we love celery) Chopped

  • 2 Bunches Green Onions, Chopped

  • 1 White Onion, Large, Chopped

  • 8 Medium Tomatoes on The Vine, Chopped

  • 2 Cans Hunts 4 Cheese Sauce

  • 2 Large Cans Hunts Tomato Sauce

  • 2 Cans Garlic Stewed Tomatoes

  • 3 or 4 Can Hunts Tomato Paste – You will use depending on the thickness you want your sauce

  • 1 lb Fresh Grated Parmesan Cheese

  • 3 tbsp Italian Seasoning

  • Salt & Pepper

  • In your crock pot add 4 Cheese, Tomato Sauce, 2 Cans Tomato Paste, and Stewed Tomatoes, stir, add 1 tbsp garlic in juices, 2 tbsp italian seasoning, dash salt dash of pepper.  Stir and cover while you cook the meats and vegy’s.

  • Make sure you chop up all your ingredients and place in separate bowls as we will add them one by one for a certain amount of time before we add the next one.

  • Add Your hamburger and sausage, cook on medium with the lid on.  Do not add any spices or salt and pepper yet.  It will cook quite sometime and build up a lot of juices, let it continue cooking with the lid on until it starts to break up and become small chunks.

  • When it is fully cooked, drain your juices into a pan and set aside.  Return hamburger and sausage to your pan.  Add 2 tbsp of garlic with juices, add your celery and cover and cook for 10 minutes.

  • Add your onions, peppers and cover and cook another 10 minutes.

  • Add your tomatoes and cover and cook another 20 minutes or half hour.

  • Add your mushrooms and cover and continue cooking about 12 to 15 minutes.

    Make sure you are stirring ever so often…

  • Add your chopped black olives and stir and cover and continue cooking 10 minutes.

  • Drain sausage, hamburger and vegy’s into container and set juices aside.  Sometimes you will have a lot of juices and sometimes you wont.  I have no answer as to why that happens LOL it just does.

  • Spoon your hamburger, sausage and vegy’s into your crock pot with sauce, stir.  You can add as much as you want here.  It depends on how you like your sauce.  Sometimes I like it really saucy and sometimes I like it with a lot of the hamburger mixture.  When I want it saucy I just take the hamburger mixture left over and freeze for another pasta dish with my white sauce.

    You be the judge here and make it how you like it.

  • Now your first hamburger and sausage juice add about 4 or 5 tbsp to your sauce.  Dump the rest unless you want it for soup stock.

  • Add a ¼ cup of the hamburger vegy juice to your sauce.  You should use the rest for a soup, its delicious or toss it.

  • Let it cook all day long.  You can taste it and see if it needs anymore italian seasoning or salt or pepper.  I do not use over kill of spices because I like to taste my food.


When it is done, it is ready to eat.

I serve over homemade noodles which I will be adding a video recipe for with Garlic Bread and fresh parm.

This sauce freezes very well.  It is always the best the next day.  I make a large crock pot of it and it gets eaten here within 3 days.

Serve it with a great white wine.
