My Mom always kept her figure and her size seldom varied. While she was an excellent cook and baker she would sneak "diet" foods into our meals. Because they were so good we never knew! The only additions I have added are the red pepper flakes and the garlic. I hope you will enjoy this as much as my family bottled sauces for us!
