Aioli, Another: March 28, 2022
My new FAVE!

Aioli, with Chipotle: February 25, 2013
This tasty garlicky spread does have just a little bit of mayo in it, but the base is actually Greek-style yogurt!

Aioli for the Holidaze!: December 2, 2019
At this time of excess, why not toss in an extra clove of garlic?

Aioli, Horseradish and Sriracha: December 8, 2014
Aioli, Horseradish and Sriracha: June 8, 2020

Aioli with Sriracha: October 29, 2013

Alabama White Sauce: July 14, 2014
More of a condiment, really, than a sauce, this tasty little concoction will be more than welcome spooned over grilled meats and stuff, but don’t forget to try a bit on your next sammich, or stirred into your next pasta or potato salad. Or, even, stirred into a bit of roasted artichoke salad along with some leftover garlic roasted shrimp. Yum.
Not really a parfait, but another (and mebbe better) take on Alabama-Style Sauce: June 22, 2015

Allioli with Cumin and Roasted Red Pepper: June 4, 2012
I went a bit heavy on the garlic for this Spanish-inspired version of the French classic, but it was all good.

Amatriciana Sauce: November 5, 2019
A nicely spiced pancetta and tomato sauce. Great with pasta,but also try it with over easy eggs and grilled sourdough slices. YUM.

Another Garlic Dressing: June 16, 2010
Still a work in progress, but I think I’m getting closer to my goal.

Arby’s Sauce: April 16, 2020
A nicely spiced ketchup and Heinz 57 blend which I believe that I shall be making a lot!
Arby’s Sauce: November 16, 2021

Arby’s Sauce, As a Glaze: November 15, 2022

Artichoke Relish With Kalamatas, Garlic, and Fresh Basil: July 21, 2015
This is really very nice spooned over a grilled steak; but you might could think about serving it plain (or with added feta cheese) on a cracker or crusty bread. Or spreading some on a sammich.

Artichoke and Spinach Cream Sauce: January 30, 2017
Loaded with veggies, milk, cream, Parmesan and Mozzarella cheeses, this sauce should be on your go to list.

Artichoke Tomato Sauce, The Doris Project, Week 28: July 23, 2014
A very nice, meatless sauce for pasta or ? and ready in a bit under an hour.

Parfait! ‘Sup! and THE Barbecue Sauce: May 24, 2013
A nicely spiced ketchup, made from ingredients you know and trust is always a good thing. Turn around and turn that nice batch o’ ‘sup! into enough of my FAVORITE barbecue sauce to see us through the first part of summer, and I’d call that WINNING!
Parfait! THE (BEST!) Barbecue Sauce: January 9, 2015
Yep – I really mean it this time; this version, made with Heinz Ketchup as the base, is, truly, the BEST!

Barbecue Sauce, White: June 22, 2015
Alabama style sauce is great on chicken, but try it on burgers, ribs, even ‘za!

Béchamel Sauce: February 13, 2012
The classic little white sauce for just about any occasion.

Beer Marinade: July 8, 2016
Try this on beef. And pork. And lamb. And mebbe even chicken. This is one of my new favorite marinades. Good thing it’s dead simple to toss together.

Best! Doctored Pasta Sauce: August 27, 2012

Big Burger Sauce: September 10, 2021
Do not just use this tasty sauce for your burgers; it is actually wicked versatile.

Black Horse Sauce: October 21, 2010
Who knew homemade mayonnaise was THIS simple?

Blue Cheese Dressing: December 14, 2010
A simpler (no shallots required) recipe than the contessa’s dip below,
but well worth tossing together the night before you want a tasty bit o’
moldy cheese goodness on your greens.

Blue Cheese/Yogurt Dip: November 25, 2010
Great, chunky dip, INCREDIBLE salad dressing.

Boom Boom Sauce: May 16, 2013
Cheese-y peppery goodness to serve with nachos, chips, or even on a nicely grilled steak(!) – the possibilities truly are endless.
Parfait! Boom Boom Sauce: March 4, 2016

Butter, Maple Syrup and Orange: May 14, 2024

Buttermilk: September 16, 2010
I use this emergency substitute so much that I thought it should have it’s
own entry.
Parfait! No Buttermilk? No Problem!, February 19, 2016

Buttermilk Marinade for Chicken or Chops: July 26, 2011

Curried Buttermilk Marinade for Chicken or Chops: September 3, 2011
Yeh – this one is nice! Live it a bit large and try some.

Cantaloupe Salsa: July 8, 2014

Carolina-Style Mustard Barbecue Sauce: August 1, 2012
I used basic yellow mustard and grilled boneless pork chops this time; but imagine a nice, coarse-ground Dijon (or mebbe that wasabi-like Trader Joe’s smooth Dijon) mix over chicken or lamb! Yum.

Catalina French Dressing: December 20, 2010
YES – this is a home made take on that tangy bottle o’ goodness from the
market. Ermmm, which I no longer have to buy  ;)

Cheeez Sauce: March 31, 2021

Chef’s Secret Sauce: October 8, 2010
A vintage recipe that, I think, offers a lot of possibilities.

Cherry Chipotle Barbecue Sauce: October 17, 2016

Cherry and Jalapeño Barbecue Sauce: March 14, 2016

Cherry Jam, Forgiving: August 29, 2012
Even if you screw up the directions and cut out half of the sugar (as did I), this will give you a very nice little pot o’ jam.

Cherry Pepper Vinaigrette: May 30, 2019
This started out as a sauce for grilled scallops; but I think it much more suited to a big hunk o’ grilled meat, or mebbe a hearty salad. Try it out and see if you don’t agree.

Chicken Gravy: January 25, 2017

Chili Sauce: October 29, 2012
My take on an old-line classic is kinda nice on eggs or in a stew, but just wait until you make your own Cocktail Sauce with it! Wicked good, indeed.
Parfait! Chili Sauce: December 6, 2013
New! Improved! Now with extra vinegar, more jalapeño, and garlic!

Chili Sauce, Coney Dog: August 31, 2015
Parfait! Chili Sauce for Hot Dogs: November 27, 2015
Try this option the next time you’re thinkin’ Coney Dogs

A meat filled, slightly spicy sauce for Huevos Rancheros or – as I’m
planning – a tasty topping for grilled hot dogs.

Chili Sauce, Hot and Sweet: March 17, 2014
This Asian-inspired riff on hot sauce combines Sriracha, sambal oelek, rice vinegar, and honey to make a pleasingly zippy sauce that’ll warm your tongue while it adds a ton o’ flavor to just about any recipe.

Chile Sauce, New Mexican, Red: February 13, 2013
There’s chili sauce and there’s chile sauce (and even then, there’s red and/or green chile sauce). You’ll want to make this your go-to home made red sauce for all your taco/enchilada/Southwestern/Latin American cooking endeavors.
Parfait! Red Chile Sauce: April 4, 2014

Chili Sauce, New York(ish) Style: July 3, 2013
This spicy sauce is loaded with beef and onion and black beans, and will, I believe, be very popular spooned over hot dogs or sausages. For a less zippy option, check out green chile sauce.
Parfait! Chili Sauce for Hot Dogs: November 27, 2015

Chili Sauce, Pineapple and Jalapeño: November 24, 2015

Chili Sauce and Pineapple Juice Barbecue: February 28, 2017

Chili Sauce, Sweet, With Grilled Halloumi: March 28, 2016

Chipotle Aioli: February 25, 2013
This tasty garlicky spread does have just a little bit of mayo in it, but the base is actually Greek-style yogurt!

Chop Pickle: December 12, 2011
A version of giardiniera you can keep for more than a couple of weeks. Don’t fret over the ‘spicy’ in the post headline – six serrano peppers only added a bit of flavor – even for folk who don’t do spicy. If you really want spicy – I’d suggest adding an even dozen.
Parfait! Ciao! Piccolo: March 30, 2012
My latest version – this time with jalapeños, seeds and all! Nice.
Parfait! Ciao! Piccolo: March 29, 2013
I make this tasty chopped pickle several times a year – we like it on grilled sausages, but my sister and her buds enjoy it as a chip dipper, so you go ahead and do what you like.

Chutney, Banana & Mango: August 10, 2020

Chutney, Date and Tamarind: July 19, 2016

(A Better) Cocktail Sauce: July 10, 2019

Cocktail Sauce, Wicked Good: December 20, 2011
If you have the right kind of Dijon mustard, you don’t even need horseradish!
The BEST! (REALLY!) Cocktail Sauce: November 20, 2012
Take a Wicked Good sauce and make it even better with your own, home made ‘sup! and chili sauce. Oh, and lots of fresh lemon juice and horseradish. Yum.
Parfait! Cocktail Sauce (Mebbe Even BETTER): July 24, 2015

Cocktail Sauce: November 24, 2021

Cranberry Chipotle Sauce: November 27, 2010

Cranberry Relish: November 14, 2010
Reaching across 28 years from another November 14 Sunday in 1982 –
Julia Child’s recipe is, to me, still the one to beat.
Parfait! Cranberry Relish
: November 18, 2011
Cranberry Relish, Best!: November 7, 2012
Give Thanks this year with your own, home made cranberry sauce and start a tradition.
Parfait! Cranberry Relish: November 22, 2013
Yep, well and truly sauced cranberries again, but this time, I’ve canned them so they are shelf-stable until needed.
Cranberry Relish, Small Batch: October 12, 2015
Cranberry Relish: November 21, 2019

Cranberry Relish, Julia Child’s: November 19, 2020
The once and future queen of cranberry relish goodness.
Cranberry Relish, Julia Child’s, Still: November 15, 2021

Parfait! Cranberry Relish (but not Julia’s): March 9, 2012
Not quite the classic – but a nice way to use up leftover canned veggies

Creamy Italian Dressing: January 13, 2011

Crème Fraîche: January 23, 2012

Crème Fraîche, The Doris Project, Week 47: December 3, 2014
This version uses buttermilk in place of sour cream. Very nice.

Enchilada Sauce: February 17, 2015

Enchilada Sauce, Nice: December 13, 2022

Fancy French Fish (and More!) Sauce: June 15, 2022
Depending on when last century this was published, this might could be the precursor to *all* of the special, secret, and come back sauces most restaurants are using today.

French Dressing (and variations): July 30, 2010
This is the CLASSIC – not a reproduction of the jarred stuff.

Firecracker Sauce: January 28, 2019
AGAIN With The Firecracker Sauce: July 3, 2019
Pork, shrimp, tacos, burgers, sammiches, even as a dip (for pork or shrimp or…) you really need this sauce in your summer.
Firecracker Sauce, Another Look: October 28, 2019

Fry Sauce: October 14, 2015
From Chef Bobby Flay, a simple to toss together, thoroughly tasty sauce, but not just for fries. Try it burgers, sammiches, waffles, it really is all good.

Garlic Barbecue Sauce: September 20, 2022

Garlic Butter: April 2, 2021

Garlic-Ginger Paste: May 15, 2012
A MUST HAVE for Baby Corn Manchurian, and just think of the possibilities in other recipes – Thai Pork Stew, anyone?

Garlic Pasta Sauce: January 7, 2013
Sautéed garlic, olive oil, and fresh chopped parsley come together to make One. Fine. Pasta Sauce. Add your pasta of choice, a bit of good Parmesan, and a dusting of your best black pepper (Tellicherry, in this house), and you have yourself a pretty darned tasty dinner. I had some shrimp laying about that were quite nice in the sauce, too.

Garlic-Pepper Sauce, Spicy: February 23, 2012
Try this in place of cocktail sauce.

Garlic Oil: December 31, 2010

Garlic, Roasted: July 16, 2015

Garlic Salad Dressing and Sauce: March 25, 2024

Gastrique, Dried Cherry: March 17, 2015

Giardiniera: September 19, 2011
A classic Chicago condiment! Check it out and enjoy a bit o’ the best from the city of the big shoulders.
Parfait! Ciao! Piccolo: March 30, 2012
A different take – but one that can be canned at home! Cauliflower, peppers and such, all nicely pickled and packed into jars for your pleasure.

Ginger Cream: February 9, 2015
Add this wicked tasty spread to liver sausage to make a pretty darned fantastic munchie spread, or consider slathering a bit on burgers – mebbe with some melted Brie.

Ginger Juice: May 15, 2012
So simple, I am kind of ashamed I had to research how to make it. Scroll down to the bottom of the Garlic-Ginger Paste post.

Gochujang: August 29, 2022
This Korean style chili paste is wicked simple to toss together, and so very good in so very many different things, such as…

Gochujang Mayonnaise: August 29, 2022
Oh, and did I mention these are both Whole30 compliant?

Gordita Sauce: March 19, 2012
Tasty with chicken or beef but surprisingly nice on a salad. Think of it as a Southwestern Thousand Island.

Next! Gordita (Style) Sauce: November 28, 2012
Another take on the above, starting with a bit of Chip Dip Seasoning from my favorite spice merchants. Don’t have your own favorite spice merchant? Get one! Or, feel free to use mine. Or, as a last resort, use a bit of Ranch mix.

Great Caesar’s Dressing!: February 15, 2011
Lotsa garlic, and ripe olives and capers in lieu of the anchovies – NICE!

Green Chile Sauce: September 23, 2010
A meat filled, slightly spicy sauce for Huevos Rancheros or – as I’m
planning – a tasty topping for grilled hot dogs.

Guacamole, Creamy: May 19, 2020
Is it an appetizer? A sammich spread? A taco topping salad dressing? Sure, why not?

Happy Camper Sammich Sauce: October 23, 2017
This smoky blend of mayonnaise and barbecue sauce is pretty darned terrific on most any sammich.

Hoisin Sauce: November 1, 2011
DON’T BUY THAT JAR at the market! This is simple to make, and SO. MUCH. BETTER.

Hollandaise Sauce, Blender: March 27, 2013
Parfait! Hollandaise Sauce, Blender: April 21, 2017

Hollandaise Sauce, Blender: June 29, 2023

Honey Bourbon Barbecue Sauce: August 25, 2017
Parfait! Honey Bourbon Barbecue Sauce: September 15, 2017

Honey Mustard: February 8, 2011
This makes a nice dip, salad dressing, or a glaze; try it using your own
preferred combination of mustard, honey and vinegar.

Best! Honey Mustard: December 18, 2012
I like this version better than the one above – mebbe because I started out by making my own mustard, or mebbe because the mayonnaise mellows things out so nicely.
(Another) Best! Honey Mustard: August 15, 2013
Who knew there were so many honey mustard options?!? This version is easily on a par with my made-from-scratch version above, and may be just a wee, tiny bit better! Made (in minutes) from jars of stuff you probably have in the cupboard anyway, this honey mustard should be on a shelf in your fridge.
Parfait! Honey Mustard: April 25, 2014

Horseradish Sauce: June 15, 2010
Parfait! Best! Horseradish Sauce: October 5, 2012
Who knew that adjusting measurements to make an already good recipe a little less fussy to put together would yield such very good results? Check it out and see if you don’t agree.
Horseradish Sauce: May 25, 2015
A great recipe bears repeating.
Parfait! Horseradish Sauce: January 27, 2017
Still the best.
Parfait! Better For You Horseradish Sauce: July 15, 2016
Using cottage cheese whipped with a bit of vinegar in place of the sour cream will save you a crap-ton of calories and fat and stuff; and you won’t be dealing with all of the stuff manufacturers put in “lite” foods.

Horseradish Sauce, New and Improved: September 4, 2018
Horseradish Sauce: November 3, 2021
Horseradish Sauce: March 3, 2022

Hot Dog Relish: June 9, 2021

Hotness Sauce: February 26, 2015

Italian Oil and Vinegar Dressing: July 11, 2012
Use this blend as a guide and customize to suit your own tastes.

Jerk Sauce, Jamaican-Style: July 17, 2013
Authentic? Heck no! But it is based on a couple of authentic recipes, and comments on those recipes, and rebuttals to those comments. So… in the end, I just made it up out of basic ingredients and added others that I thought would work. It does.

Jezebel Sauce: April 10, 2023

Jezebel Sauce – Slightly Less Zippy: July 31, 2023
My Indian born and bred mom-in-law is staying with us, so I’ve cut back on the prepared horseradish and dried mustard powder. Still quite tasty.

Ketchup: January 16, 2012
Parfait! ‘sup!: November 23, 2012
Same, great ketchup as before, but with the spiced toned down just a little bit to suit more tastes, and the ingredients scaled up to yield a very respectable 15 pints.
Parfait! ‘Sup! and THE Barbecue Sauce: May 24, 2013
A nicely spiced ketchup, once again rescaled – this time to fit an average kitchen’s stock pot – made from ingredients you know and trust is always a good thing. Turn around and turn that nice batch o’ ‘sup! into enough of my FAVORITE barbecue sauce to see you through at least the first part of summer, and I’d call that WINNING!
Parfait! ‘Sup! – BEST. BATCH. EVER!: March 21, 2014
Seriously, I think this time, I have gone and done made the blend.

Kimchi: September 25, 2010
It’s a salad, it’s a condiment, it’s a munchie – TRY it!

Mango Sammich Spread, The Doris Project, Week 41: October 22, 2014
Just add mayonnaise and make yourself a sammich to be proud of.

Maple Mustard Barbecue: January 15, 2013
I stuffed, rolled, breaded, then baked chicken breasts with this, but this marinade and sauce would be fine for grilled chicken filets as well; and I might not say no to thinning the sauce and using it as a mop on the grill for chicken or pork.

Maple Syrup with Sriracha and Tamari: March 29, 2021

Marinade, Beer, for Steak: April 17, 2017

Marinara With Pork Chops: May 28, 2015

Marshmallow Fluff: April 9, 2011

Mayonnaise: July 5, 2012
This is one nifty (and fast) little number, and egg-less to boot!

Mayonnaise, Classic: December 3, 2012
Yeh, so THIS mayonnaise has eggs, but it’s also dairy free; and, as it happens, pretty darned nifty used on its own, or, as did I, as the base for a very nice Russian dressing.

Mayonnaise, Ginger, Basil, and Honey: June 10, 2014

Mayonnaise, Kalamata Olive and Roasted Garlic: May 27, 2013
The steaks in this post aren’t too, too bad, either.

Mayonnaise, Medianoche: June 20, 2016
This nicely spiced mayonnaise, based on the Cuban medianoche (midnight) sammich, is good on so many things!

Mostarda With Dried Cherries and Apricots: November 8, 2016
You will want this mustard and dried fruit spread at your holiday gatherings.

Mushrooms (‘Shrooms!) in a Nice Red Wine Reduction: April 21, 2016
Is this a sauce or a side dish? It’s really your choice.

Mustard Barbecue Sauce: May 5, 2020
Take a step away from the usual and try my take on this Carolina-style sauce.

Mustard, Basic: December 10, 2012
Your own, home made mustard is mebbe ten minutes, and a little resting time, away! Use it as is, or as the base for the mustard options below.

Mustard Dipping Sauce: December 1, 2020

Mustard, Ginger Sweet Curry: December 10, 2012
Don’t let the ingredients fool you – this tasty little blend will go as well on a ham sammich as it will used as a schmear with your favorite Asian-style munchie.

Mustard, and Maple Vinaigrette: April 9, 2015
Yeh, there’s a bit of cider vinegar in this nicely spiced mustard spread, but the only salad I would add this to is that topping a really good sammich. Or, mebbe add a tablespoon to potato salad or coleslaw. Yeh, that’d work.

Mustard Onion: March 30, 2020

Mustard, Pineapple: July 17, 2012
Spicy sweet, and oh! so easy to toss together. If you don’t care to make your own Cajun-inspired seasoning blend, by all means use your store bought favorite. It’s all good.
Mustard, Pineapple, Best!: June 5, 2017
Truly a pinnacle of mustard; sweet and spicy and oh! so simple to toss together. Do plan on getting your hands on some Trader Joe’s Dijon, it kinda makes the mustard.

Mustard, Sweet and Spicy, HoJo’s Style: April 13, 2017
Mustard, Zippy & Sweet, a Repeat: August 28, 2017

Ollie’s Most Excellent Sammich Sauce: July 10, 2018
A slightly different, wicked tasty, take on burger sauce, and fry dip. And more.

Orange Marmalade: December 9, 2011
I listed it as a Parfait! recipe, but it really is a bit different from the Clementine version.

Pápa Sauce: June 17, 2019
This smoky, sweet, and spicy sauce is named for the Hungarian paprika used to season it. Try it, and my creamy variation, and you might very well have all of your summer barbecue sauce needs taken care of.

Parma Rosa Pasta Sauce: April 3, 2011

Peach Barbecue Sauce: August 2, 2011

Peach Marmalade Dipping Sauce: August 28, 2020

Peach Salsa: December 12, 2023

Peppers, Pickled, Perky!, The Doris Project, Week 17: May 7, 2014

Pepper Relish, New England Style: July 16, 2012
Sweet, and just a wee but spicy (tho’ you can certainly adjust that to your tastes), this is a wonderful topping for burgers, but also works surprisingly well with nicely seasoned meats wrapped in bread or pastry wrappers. Do check out the Jewel Roll version, coming July 20, 2012.

Pesto: June 28, 2010

Another Pesto: January 14, 2015

Pesto, Basil and Walnut: August 14, 2013
