Cook Something New Every Day for 31 Days (#31daycooks)

Cook Something New Every Day for 31 Days (#31daycooks) A friend of mine recently completed a month-long challenge where she did something new every day. She made a cheesecake and sang karaoke for the first time! This inspired me to try something similar — only my challenge will happen solely in the kitchen. This upcoming January I plan to make my own yogurt, bake my own dippers (baking, yikes!), plus complete 29 more new-to-me recipes. Will you join me...

The Case of the Unidentified Dip

The Case of the Unidentified Dip My friend Barb over at Creative Culinary posted a beautiful picture of a caramel sauce on Twitter with the caption, “I have no idea what this is but it looks good. Anyone else ever do that; make something; take photos and then ???” For me the answer is “yes.” Quite a few times actually. I’ve written about more than 50 dip recipes here on the Saucy Dipper, but probably made...

Question of the Day: What About Those Little Condiment Packets?

Question of the Day: What About Those Little Condiment Packets? We’ve all got one. You know. That stash of condiment packets leftover from Chinese takeout orders and late night trips to fast food drive-throughs. We don’t dare throw the condiment packets out. What if we decide to go camping or, heaven forbid, we run out of ketchup and only discover that fact the moment we’re taking the fries out of the oven? Devastating. But these little packets of...

Saucy News: Little Dipper and Dipstock

Saucy News: Little Dipper and Dipstock That cute young thing you see there was born November 27. Maggie, who was aptly named the “Little Dipper” by Karen Harris over at Savoury Table, has slowed down the Saucy Dipper a bit. I used to post twice a week, then once a week, then every two weeks, and now… My posting frequency may go down even more in the months to come, but never fear. I’m still here. Just a bit...

To celebrate this milestone I’ve got a few things I want to tell you about. 101 Sauce and Dip Lovers Is it a coincidence that we have about as many group members as we do posts?!?!

Food Photography Tips from a Photog Who Knows

Food Photography Tips from a Photog Who Knows In my other writing life, I help small businesses with their online marketing–using words mostly. Whether its website content writing, social media content, or blogging, I can help out by being a writing coach, marketing strategy consultant, or get down and dirty and do the writing myself. So when a friend of mine and I decided to interview each other for our respective blogs, it was like, well,...

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...

Eight Things You Don’t Know About Me and a Recipe for Sara’s Chicken Things

Eight Things You Don’t Know About Me and a Recipe for Sara’s Chicken Things Magic of Spice over at The Ardent Epicure asked me (along with a few others) to answer a handful of questions.

Below are my answers to her questions PLUS a recipe that doesn’t quite belong on Saucy Dipper, but it made me famous among friends, so I thought you might like to know about...

Water Saving Tips for the Kitchen

Water Saving Tips for the Kitchen Today is a big day. It’s Blog Action Day. Thousands of bloggers are focusing their posts on the global issue of water. I’m happy to be part of this year’s Blog Action Day for a couple reasons. First, I think bloggers–no matter how small or large their community–can educate their readers on issues that the mainstream media may not cover effectively. Bloggers are also more...
