Creamy Horseradish Sauce

Creamy Horseradish Sauce

You know the other day, I posted out my recipe for Poor Man’s Mock Prime Rib, and I wanted to get you my recipe for Creamy Horseradish Sauce to go with it. I know Thanksgiving is looming and I have a few recipes coming up, but I wanted to tie up this loose end, first. Just as a teaser, don’t forget to watch for my easy and outstanding chocolate tart, because the Holidays can’t be all about the pumpkin!

Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce

Have you tried Shishito Peppers yet? Have you heard of them? I hadn’t until my Step Sister Pam visited a while back and raved about them. I was determined to try them as soon as I was back in the Twin Cities but completely forgot until I saw them at Aldi, of all places. So I brought them home and made Shishito Peppers with Sriracha Mayo Dipping Sauce.

Sumac Red Onion & Cucumber Relish

Sumac Red Onion & Cucumber Relish

Sumac Red Onion & Cucumber Relish is the final condiment that I made to go with the fabulous Home Style Chicken Shawarma I made earlier in the week. And that was fabulous and can be made on the grill or on a sheet pan. Gotta love that! (I’m a little relieved that this is the final post because I have a cake coming up – and what a cake! Now that’s a shameless teaser, isn’t it?)

A lot of that recipe and the condiments to go with it, the Lemon Garlic Tahini Sauce, the Zhoug and this recipe for the Sumac Red Onion & Cucumber Relish came from Chef Ottolenghi, the famed London Chef who’s known for kind if mixing things up and breaking a few rules to delicious effect.

Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug - Spicy Herb Sauce

Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce

I made my Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce for the first time last week, and made it again the next day! Because of all the condiments that I served with my Home Style Chicken Shawarma, the Zhoug, Zhug, Skhug – Spicy Herb Sauce was my favorite. I don’t normally post multiple times in one day, but I don’t want you to have to wait days for the sauces that go with that Chicken Shawarma!

Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa

Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa

Now that summer is just about here…we hope…it’s time to think about those snacks we’d like to have out on the deck on a balmy evening. Chips and Salsa, I’m thinking. And one of my favorite summer recipes is a Salsa Fresca, a classic Pico de Gallo. Particularly Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa. Maybe even with a cold, slushy Margarita. But that will have to be another post.

Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos

Do yanno what’s a great little thing to have on hand? Just to perk up a little Mexican food. Maybe toss on some tacos or nachos? Refrigerator Pickled Jalapenos. And not only are the pickled jalapenos great, if you’re into a little heat, the brine is fantastic dribbled in or over dishes.

Candied or Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos

Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Pickled Peppers

Sweet & Hot Pickled Jalapenos - easy and no processing needed!

I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”

Spicy Tomato Jam

Spicy Tomato Jam

Tomato Jam: a little sweet a little spice; this has personality, Spread it anywhere ketchup goes and a few places ketchup doesn't dare!

Talk about persistent, and maybe a bit coy, tomato jam came on slow for me. Before it began to whisper my name, I’d see it here and there, maybe on Pinterest, sometimes on Facebook and I think it even showed up now and again on our weekly Throwback Thursday link party.

Quickie Tonkatsu Sauce

I love slightly sweet, slightly tangy Tonkatsu Sauce, but it can be a little hard to find, depending on where you live. Of course, there’s always Amazon, lol, but boy do I have to try to stay away from there if you know what I mean. My cupboards would be bursting, my bank account empty!

Chimichurri

I’ve never been a huge fan of Chimichurri; it’s bold, brash taste has always been a bit off-putting to me. But when I was thinking about something to go with my Coffee Rubbed Steak the other day, my mind immediately seized upon Chimichurri.
