Basic Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Basic Homemade Barbecue Sauce

Have you ever reached into the fridge to get barbecue sauce only to discover that there isn’t any?  You have a few choices in this situation. 

Sue Chef’s Alfredo Sauce

This is a simple and fool proof recipe for Alfredo sauce that’s rich and creamy.  Sue Chef and Baker’s Man created it one day when we had no jars of Alfredo Sauce in the house.  This recipe creates a quick and delicious sauce, and once you’ve made this homemade version, you will never buy the Alfredo sauce in jars again.  Everyone thinks that Alfredo sauce goes best with fettuccine.  It’s quite good that way, and our photos show it served with fettuccine, but we believe that Sue Chef’s Alfredo Sauce is best served over a pasta that really holds onto […]

Thickened teriyaki sauce on meat and rice

Teriyaki Sauce

I love teriyaki.  In fact, it’s one of my favorite ways to season chicken and burgers, but I don’t like to buy teriyaki sauce.  It can be expensive, and there is no reason to spend money to buy the pre-made sauce.  Teriyaki  is one of the easiest sauces to make because it is made from ingredients that most people already have on hand.   The sauce can be used as a marinade or thickened to be brushed on like a barbecue sauce.  Sometimes, I have been known to do both. Pouring this sauce over chicken pieces before freezing provides you with […]

Dr Pepper Barbecue Sauce

Making your own homemade barbecue sauce is very easy.  If you’ve never done it before,  you seriously need to give it a try. It’s really easy to put together your own sauce for less than fifty cents.   When you make it yourself, you can ensure that there are no unwanted ingredients,  and you can create many different variations on your sauce. This barbecue sauce is made with Dr Pepper because I will be making Sue Chef’s  favorite Dr. Pepper Ribs later this week.  I’ll post a recipe for another barbecue sauce next month, too.  Making the sauce ahead of […]

Quick and Easy Pizza Sauce

Quick and Easy Pizza Sauce

In my last post, I reviewed the popular recipe for  pepperoni pizza pull apart bread.   I mentioned that we served the bread with home made pizza sauce and a green salad.  Today, I’m going to give you my top secret recipe for quick and easy home made pizza sauce.  It’s so easy, and tastes so good, that you may never buy pizza sauce again.  This is especially true, when you consider that the cost of the homemade sauce is  under 50 cents per cup to make. If you like light sauce on your pizza, this recipe makes enough for two home made pizzas about 14″” in […]

3 ingredient 50 cent pizza sauce goes great with pizza pull apart bread

Pizza Pull Apart Bread

This all started with a Facebook post, but before I tell you anything more, I have a confession to make.  I don’t have a Facebook page.  I don’t have a Pinterest account.  I don’t tweet or Instagram, either.  My use of social media is pretty much non-existent.  It’s a sad thing, and I know that I could attract more people to my blog if I used social media, but I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  I will probably set up at least a Facebook account before the end of the year, but as of today, I’m am without social […]
