Very touching story, Mark. Glad her 'tough love' worked on you. I get you are a wonderful cook.

In a nut shell, my mom cooked great homestyle food, but didnt have much variety. When I was young, I started to develope recipes that had variety, used different things that I never tried. I started out using very cheap cuts of meat, fish, then worked my way up to various recipes I found here and there. Later I decided to wing my way through all sorts of recipes, and then eventually create my own versions.
