Saucy Dipper’s Take on Chimichurri Sauce

Saucy Dipper’s Take on Chimichurri Sauce Chimichurri is one of those flexible sauces. Dozens of ways to make it and dozens of ways to enjoy it. I used fresh basil but you can use cilantro or parsley instead. I added an aji spice mix, because I love it. If you would rather not include the aji, add more oregano. Of course, if you like more spice, add more red pepper flakes too. Most folks eat  chimichurri sauce over meat, but I often mix mine...

It’s All Gravy. An Easy Sausage Gravy Recipe.

It’s All Gravy. An Easy Sausage Gravy Recipe. Growing up I didn’t care for gravy. At holiday meals I’d pass that boat and opt for ketchup instead (yes, ketchup on turkey AND ham). It was the consistency, the color, and the idea that gravy was a result of all the leftover bits that would otherwise go in the trash. Now, decades later, I’ve realized my distaste is unfounded. Maybe those insta-gravy mixes should be outlawed, but a fresh...

Making Tartar Sauce and Cooking for a Toddler

Making Tartar Sauce and Cooking for a Toddler In an ideal world your toddler would eat what you eat for dinner. I make a nice roasted chicken thinking, “yea, she’ll love this.” But nope.

Savory Pumpkin Sauce Over Rotini

Savory Pumpkin Sauce Over Rotini I know what you’re thinking: Enough with the pumpkin-flavored foods already!

This recipe was inspired by our ol’ pal Martha Stewart, but she’s not the only one with pumpkin sauce recipes. You can find a variety of...

Say “No” to Sloppy Joe Seasoning Packets. Make These Slow Cooker Joe’s Instead.

Say “No” to Sloppy Joe Seasoning Packets. Make These Slow Cooker Joe’s Instead. It’s been about six months and one week since I last posted here, which I know is TOO LONG. You probably thought I forgot about you. No way did I forget! I just got confused about my priorities. The Saucy Dipper is back, and I have so many things up my sleeve I can hardly stand it. This blog is about to take on a whole new shape and align with my marketing business, but that’s all I can tell...

Three Reasons to Make Ricotta Cheese Pizza

Three Reasons to Make Ricotta Cheese Pizza Few pizzas will get a rave review from me. Of course, I love pizza. But I don’t rave about it. At least I didn’t until I met my new friend “ricotta sauce.” How do you make ricotta sauce, you ask? Ummmm…turn up the heat on some ricotta and add a touch of milk. It doesn’t get easier, or tastier. That is reason #1. Reason #2 to Make Ricotta Pizza: Caramelized...
