bd’s Mongolian Grill {Sauce Lover’s Paradise}

bd’s Mongolian Grill {Sauce Lover’s Paradise} Since having the first little dipper — Maggie — I’ve lost all free time for cooking and heading out to new restaurants. Having the second little dipper — Fletcher — hasn’t improved my culinary status either. Now, that doesn’t mean I don’t still enjoy tasty food, especially where sauces are concerned, it’s just harder to come by. When the folks at...

A New Favorite: Blue Moose Dips

A New Favorite: Blue Moose Dips Every now and again a brand of dips come along that beats out all other dips in recent memory. Right now for me that’s Blue Moose of Boulder. I was fortunate enough to score a free batch of three dips and one sauce from their Colorado office. All of the products were awesome, but hands down the crowd favorite was… …the MontAmore & Roasted Red Pepper Spread. An empty container 20...

The Condiment Lovers Dream: Ship & Dip

The Condiment Lovers Dream: Ship & Dip My friend Nina is a constant Saucy Dipper supporter and a true source of blog post inspiration. Even all the way in Paris she found out about a new US company that provides a monthly condiment subscription for those…well, for those who are just like me and love sauces and dips like no other. The company is Ship & Dip, and the story, the founders, and the products they feature couldn’t be...

Salsa Buying Tip: When Eating Basic, Buy The Cheapest.

Salsa Buying Tip: When Eating Basic, Buy The Cheapest. The topic of salsa has come up a couple times lately. First a friend asked me what store-bought salsa I recommended and I had nothing. (Saucy Dipper fail!) Then another friend asked what salsa I used in my chili. I don’t. I use regular ol’ tomato sauce. She couldn’t believe it. To remedy my salsa naivete I decided to do some research, which I started off doing with a blind taste test at...

Product Feature: Epicurean Black Truffle Butter

Product Feature: Epicurean Black Truffle Butter Starting this fall I’m on a mission to find specialty food makers — condiment companies in particular — in an effort to build my new blogger-brand network and marketing company (lots of details to come). My goal is for Saucy Dipper to become THE hub for condiment enthusiasts. My first partner? Epicurean Butter in Federal Heights, just north of Denver. This family-run business is as sweet...

Helliemae’s Salted Caramel Sauce Worth the Calories

Helliemae’s Salted Caramel Sauce Worth the Calories Several weeks back I was fortunate to tour the Helliemae’s Handcrafted Caramels factory here in Denver. I went with my gal pals from No Plain Jane’s Kitchen and Creative Culinary. What a treat! Let me tell ya. The fact that Ellen (the brains behind Helliemae’s) opens her doors once a month to the public and invites people to ask questions, sample the caramels, and take a peek at her...

In fact, you can find a number of food blogs devoted to the culture, including this, this, and this one. Barbecue sauces tend to fall under different categories based on the main ingredient, which might be tomato, mustard, or vinegar.

A Blade X5 Cut Resistant Gloves Review

A Blade X5 Cut Resistant Gloves Review Not long ago I put my hand in a blender while making a cheese ball. My husband, Jason, felt bad for me and bought me a pair of cut resistant gloves a few days later. Jason didn’t mean to be funny, but it WAS funny. Who puts their hand in the blender anyway? Truth be told, the gloves wouldn’t have prevented my near finger-loss, but they will be useful in the kitchen. Here’s my review of G...

A Review for the KitchenAid 9 Cup Food Processor KFP740

A Review for the KitchenAid 9 Cup Food Processor KFP740 For many sauces and dips, a food processor is an essential kitchen tool. I recently invested in the KitchenAid 9 Cup Food Processor KFP740 and am glad to say that it’s increased my sauce-making capabilities greatly. In fact, I wouldn’t have been able to go on my recent aji sauce recipe adventure without it. This post is my review of the product, which I recommend. I know it’s...

How to Use a Hand Blender

How to Use a Hand Blender I recently purchased the Cuisinart Smart Stick® Hand Blender and promised to write a review, but then I remembered…this is the first hand blender I’ve ever owned, so how can I write a review? I can, however, tell you how to use a hand blender effectively and how it really can take the place of a bulky, expensive food processor or blender in some cases. First, what is a hand blender? A hand...
