Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Butter

Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Butter When I say “butter,” you say “dairy spread.” You say that because that’s what we most often think of when we hear the word butter. We think of that fatty cream that gets churned and churned until it’s a nice yellowy spread perfect for our muffin or roll. But there’s more than one kind of butter. There’s actually dozens. There’s all the different...

A Basic Mornay for Macaroni and Cheese

A Basic Mornay for Macaroni and Cheese Mornay sauce = becahamel sauce with cheese, usually swiss or Gruyere. Mornay sauce = perfect sauce for vegetables or noodles. Morney sauce = the sauce that gives mac ‘n cheese life. We grilled steaks and I didn’t want an ordinary French fry or baked potato. I know, so unlike me. Instead I made a very unhealthy and quite tasty macaroni and cheese composed of elbow noodles, spinach, bacon, and...

Labor Day is coming up and that means you’re most likely going to grill. You gotta get at least one more summer meal in…right? Since rediscovering our grill (We moved and now have the space!), we’ve had about every type of grilled meat available…including burgers, of course. To spice up the ordinary burger, I whipped up my own version of McDonald’s Special Sauce. Not sure what...

Canned Versus Fresh Tomatoes in Pizza Sauce

Canned Versus Fresh Tomatoes in Pizza Sauce You could order a large pizza in Denver for anywhere from $8 to $20, or thereabouts. You could also make your own pizza for anywhere from $10-$25, or thereabouts. I’m all for making your own food because it’s healthier and cheaper than the restaurant version, but when it comes to pizza–good pizza–it’s definitely not cheaper to make it on your own. Although, homemade pizza is...

When Life Hands You Chicken Balls…

When Life Hands You Chicken Balls… …make cucumber sauce. I know that this headline makes it seem like chicken balls are a bad thing, but they’re actually quite lovely. I simply wanted to write that headline, because how many times in your life can you say: “When life hands you chicken balls…”? I’ll probably only get to say it twice. Anyway, about that cucumber sauce. Sauce recipes don’t come much...

Slow Cooker French Dip and Au Jus

Slow Cooker French Dip and Au Jus A few days ago I made the best French dip of my life. Actually, I think it’s the only French dip I’ve ever made. Either way, I’m certain that this recipe will make its way into the rotation of meals here at the Lancaster house. After smelling the delicious meat scents all day and enjoying a great meal, I was psyched to see so many leftovers.¬†Leftovers are my friend. I decided to let the...

How to Make Honey Mustard Sauce

How to Make Honey Mustard Sauce Honey mustard sauce was one of the first dipping sauces I learned to master. A friend and I created dozens of versions before finally settling on our favorite combination of sweet, tangy, and salty. Honey mustard sauce deserves sweet potato fries. Honey mustard sauce deserves fried chicken. Honey mustard sauce deserves a Cobb salad. (You don’t have to eat a Cobb with vinaigrette. I say it’s...

Coconut Chicken Curry Sauce

Coconut Chicken Curry Sauce That’s me at the Grand Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. My husband and I traveled to Asia a couple years ago. Aside from seeing spectacular Buddhist temples, enduring incredible heat, and riding on elephants (it’s bumpy), we ate A LOT in Thailand. It’s not only that food is cheap in Thailand. It’s that the food tastes as spectacular as those sparkly temples look. While in Thailand my...

What Smells Better than Simmering Apples?

What Smells Better than Simmering Apples? Simmering strawberries might smell a little better than simmering apples. But they’re both scents from Heaven. Maple syrup doesn’t really float my boat…or my French toast, which is why I drizzle fruity sweetness on my pancakes or French toast.¬†And this past weekend I didn’t only make one fruit sauce. I made two. Apples in cinnamon sauce and blended strawberries made for a fruity...

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Taco Sauce

Celebrating Cinco de Mayo with Taco Sauce I don’t usually celebrate Cinco de Mayo to the fullest. I mean, I think Mexico’s freedom is a wonderful thing, but Cinco de Mayo is a little like St. Patrick’s Day to me…It’s a good reason to have a parade, and I don’t really like parades. But, then again, both holidays are a good reason to eat and drink, and I can definitely get excited about that. This year, I...
