Tomato Sauce


Homemade Worcestershire Sauce

I made Worcestershire sauce! Yes, I most certainly did. I'm so proud of myself. I know it doesn't seem like an incredibly huge undertaking. For me, though, it is in some ways. I really like to accomplish things. When I accomplish something new, then I'm truly excited and wonderfully fueled to keep going and trying more new things....more

Salted Caramel Sauce

Last year I showed you how to make Homemade Caramel Sauce. Now it is time for a slight but significant variation – Salted Caramel Sauce. It takes very little time to make it in your own kitchen and it is made with only 4 simple ingredients that you probably already have at home. In this quick and easy recipe, caramel sauce is made with cream and without corn syrup. If you are making it for the first time, I would suggest you use just 1/2 tsp of salt and then add some more salt later, so that the sauce is not too salty....more

And while I fell off the healthy eating wagon the past month or so, I decided to jump right back into it.  And as I've been seeing recipe after recipe for spaghetti squash recently, I figured I'd start with that! ...more

Fresh Peach Sauce and the California Coastline

A few years ago Matty and I were in San Diego for a business conference. It was my first time in California, my first time at the Pacific Ocean, and only my second time feeling waves at my feet. It was fall, and it was humid and almost chilly. He spent his days in sessions; I spent mine wrapped in a blanket, doused in sunscreen, barefoot walking the cove that the hotel sat on. Many things were memorable about this trip....more

Pot Stickers with My Favorite Dipping Sauce

I love pot stickers. They are one of my favorite comfort foods and I love spending time making them on a weekend. I remember during my teens, me and my mom would be in the kitchen for hours making a ton of pot stickers to freeze and reheat for a snack or meal. ...more
