Saucy Bloopers and Your Favorite Posts

Saucy Bloopers and Your Favorite Posts

In seven months, I’ve published 76 blog posts, responded to over 400 visitor comments, and consumed about 18,000 more calories than I would have consumed if I hadn’t been blogging as the Saucy Dipper (figure about 300 calories per dip or sauce and 60 total dips and sauces).

I’m not complaining, though — not even about those calories. I really do love sauces and dips!

Seeing how it’s the end of the year and so much has come from this blog, I’d like to take a moment to showcase a few bloopers and to celebrate your favorite posts. But first, I want to say thank you for visiting and for reading. I think you’re awesome.

Let’s start the bloopers off with the crystallized sugar that ensued during my caramel sauce debacle (pictured above). Next, what about the time I shattered a plate on the kitchen floor after trudging through the wind and rain in NYC and making a shrimp dip? That day was a doozie.

Or the time I made potato pancakes and chopped a jalapeno without gloves? I almost cried, because my fingers burned so bad.

I was so proud of my new food processor that I wrote a review and “how to.” After boasting about its wonderfulness, I plugged it in to make a cucumber sauce. Turns out my KitchenAid isn’t perfect after all. Check out this leakage…

Then there was the time my sister and I fought with a can of olives and almost threw it out the window. Thankfully for my mom’s window and the seven-layer bean dip we made, everything worked out. It was just a matter of taking the olive can apart. Tee hee.

One of the most infuriating things to happen in the kitchen has to be a clumpy looking sauce that should be creamy. I slaved over a chicken tikka masala and again had to fight back the tears when it looked like this…

I learned about tempering the hard way…

But then there’s always a lot of good to go along with the whoopsie moments, at least that’s the way I like to look at it. The following posts are the most popular Saucy Dipper posts to date. Please enjoy!

    I’m catching up on your posts (crawled into a hole in December). Now I’m curious about tempering! The chicken tikka masala looks like it was great anyway. Will you explain tempering in a future post?
