Quick Emergency Barbecue Sauce

Quick Emergency Barbecue Sauce

Is running out of barbecue sauce an emergency? In my kitchen, it can be! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve opened my fridge looking for barbecue sauce only to realize I’m out! Honestly, I either have too many kinds cluttering up the fridge door or none at all. There doesn’t seem to be an in-between! But one thing I almost always have on hand is ketchup, and it makes a fab base for this Quick Emergency Barbecue Sauce.

Homemade Canadian Donair

Homemade Canadian Donair

These days simple do-able recipes with a high pay off have been my mainstay. Do Homemade Canadian Donair qualify? I think so. And while these sandwiches might look restaurant quality (and the idea DID come from one, Occo Kitchen & Bar, I saw on Diner’s, Drive-Ins & Dives and here’s the video) these lovely Canadian versions of the Gyro are much easier than you’d guess,. especially if you view it as a mostly a “make ahead” meal. Gotta love that!

I’m gonna share one of my secrets with you guys! (Don’t tell…on second thought, do! Share it everywhere!) It’s this Honey Chipotle Glaze. If you cook (and I’m guessing you do or you wouldn’t be here!) you gotta know how we all have those recipes that people remember and ask about? This simple little sauce (glaze sounds better) is one of those.

Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes

Awhile back, way back when, I made Slow Roasted Tomatoes, a technique I stole from Bon Appetit. They are more fabulous than words can say, but when I say slow-roasted, I mean six to eight hours in the oven slow. Something I don’t mind when it’s maybe minutes 20 degrees outside (yanno I’m from Minnesoda, you betcha) but that can wear thin in our warmer weather. Then I had an aha moment. What if I made Slow Roasted Cherry Tomatoes? I figured I’d have all the flavor and a lot less time invested. Win. Win.
