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...

Green Chile Makes a Meal

Green Chile Makes a Meal Here in Colorado you can rarely order a burrito or chile relleno or enchilada without it being smothered in green chile, and that’s a good thing. Once you’ve drenched your cheesy Mexican food in green chile there’s no turning back. As much as I enjoy green chile, I’ve never bothered to master a recipe, and I’m not sure why. I think this spring is the spring. My mission:...

Your Kitchen Needs Blow Torch Excitement

Your Kitchen Needs Blow Torch Excitement A blow torch brings drama to the kitchen…in a good way. How else you can get that perfectly caramelized sugar in seconds flat? During my recent blow torch adventure I was a little hesitant at first. It seemed scary! But the truth is that once you master your flame, cooking with a blow torch is easy and useful. Blow torches let you caramelize, brown, roast, crisp-ify (no, that’s not a word), and...

How to Make Vegetarian Espagnole Sauce

How to Make Vegetarian Espagnole Sauce In it’s simplest form, espagnole sauce is a meat-based stock thickened with a roux. You make beef stock by slowly simmering beef bones and trimmings in herbs for several hours. It’s a time intensive process that requires one hefty stock pot. I have not endeavored to make a beef stock, but I have made vegetable stock. While at first I didn’t think all the money and time was worth making a...

Barbecue sauces tend to fall under different categories based on the main ingredient, which might be tomato, mustard, or vinegar. Then there’s the barbecue sauces that are grouped by function: mopping sauce coats meat...

Since then, I’ve read almost every page of the book and tried quite a few of the recipes. The two recipes I can’t wait to share with you are, of course, a dip and a sauce. What else!       An Ina Garten-Inspired Tapenade During the last...

What To Do With All That Mango Chutney

What To Do With All That Mango Chutney I bought a jar of mango chutney to make a curry cream for chicken soup a couple months back (it was wonderful). The recipe called for 1/4 cup mango chutney, which left me with quite a bit of leftover. What to do? Turns out there’s a lot you can do.         Brie and Mango Chutney Rolls To make this delicious side dish, get a can of your regular ol’ Pillsbury biscuits. Peel...
