How to Make Pumpkin Glaze and Other Tasty Treats from #31DayCooks

How to Make Pumpkin Glaze and Other Tasty Treats from #31DayCooks The glaze. The easiest and possibly sweetest frosting. It’s so versatile. Add a little vanilla or a touch of lemon or whatever! Everything goes with milk and sugar! I chose to make a pumpkin glaze since I still had some around after the holidays. (Pumpkin season is over when I say it’s over!)  The flavor combo worked nicely with a low-sugar banana bread. (Actually it was more like a...

Spicy Sausage and Fruit Salsa

Spicy Sausage and Fruit Salsa I  have a thing for fruit salsa recipes. Last summer about this time I went on a salsa-making binge…you might remember. When Boulder Sausage sent me a fun note about a recipe contest they’re hosting on their Facebook page, I immediately thought about entering a tasty fruit salsa. (By the way, visit their page to vote for your favorite recipes.) And what fruit goes best with sausage? Pineapple....

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...

27 Ways to Dip Your Sweet Potato Fries

27 Ways to Dip Your Sweet Potato Fries Sweet potato fries are no joke, at least not in my book. They’re the perfect combination of sweet and salty. They’re good fried, but I actually like mine better baked. Best of all, sweet potatoes are good for you! They’re a great source of vitamins A, C, and B6. They contain complex carbohydrates and are high in fiber. Another reason I enjoy them so much (and you can probably guess the...

What Fall Tastes Like: Apple Pumpkin Sauce

What Fall Tastes Like: Apple Pumpkin Sauce Last year about this time I binged on pumpkin dip. I fell in love so deeply with a sweet pumpkin dip that I couldn’t go more than a few hours without sneaking to the fridge and snarfing down a handful of ginger snaps and a mound of pumpkin dip. Several days of this proved dangerous. I overdid it. I ate too much pumpkin and haven’t had any since then. At least not until I saw a recipe for...

Pineapple Salsa Dip. The End.

Pineapple Salsa Dip. The End. It’s been a fun month o’ fruit salsas here on Saucy Dipper…four (count ’em) FOUR recipes. Man, did they all taste good. I talked about the mango cucumber salsa, the strawberry and yellow pepper salsa, the cherry salsa dip, and now my favorite: pineapple and green pepper salsa. At least I think the pineapple salsa is my favorite of the four. The strawberry salsa comes in a close...

Even the Wrong Dippers Make this Cherry Salsa Taste Right

Even the Wrong Dippers Make this Cherry Salsa Taste Right It’s 4pm and I’m standing in the Whole Foods snack aisle. It must be 95 degrees outside. I didn’t take a nap. Have I mentioned I’m pregnant? Well, I’m tired, hot, hungry, PREGNANT, and irritated by the fact that I can never find the pita chips I’m looking for when I’m at the store. Are they in the chip aisle? Near the deli? On a random end cap near the ethnic...

Strawberry and Yellow Pepper Fruit Salsa

Strawberry and Yellow Pepper Fruit Salsa It’s August, which is also known as the Saucy Dipper’s “Month O’ Fruit Salsas.” I already told you about a mango-cucumber salsa and today you get lots o’ strawberry-yellow pepper salsa goodness. Now, I’m not one to brag, especially since the following recipe isn’t really mine. I found inspiration on the Whole Foods website. However, I made this salsa for a...

Month O’ Fruit Salsas: Mango Cucumber

Month O’ Fruit Salsas: Mango Cucumber Most of the time I prefer a smooth dip over a salsa, but on a hot night not too long ago I got a hankering for a fruit salsa that couldn’t be denied. After some research, I decided on a mango-cucumber salsa. The freshness of the mango and cucumber was exactly what I wanted on that particular summer evening. And that’s when it started. A mild fascination with fruit salsas developed and...

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...
