Spring has asparagus, peas, and all things pastel. Summer has peaches, cherries, and all things outdoor…like grilling, pool parties, and family gatherings. This week we will be celebrating all things cherry, because it sounded like a fun thing to do and I could not decide which recipe I wanted to make featuring cherries. A big thank you to all of you on Facebook that voted!! This Cherry Bourbon Barbecue Sauce was a runner up……..
This Easy Blender Béarnaise Sauce has all the flavors of the classic French sauce, with simplified preparation techniques that anyone can master! Béarnaise Sauce made of clarified butter emulsified in egg yolks, wine, vinegar and flavored with herbs. It is one of the five French mother sauces, along with Hollandaise, Béchamel, Espagnole, Velouté, and Tomate…….
I have a crazy confession to make. Well maybe not a confession per se, but an admission of how incredibly strange my food tastes are. I have never hidden the fact that I do not like spicy food. My taste buds can handle about as much spice as a typical five year old…when we are talking about spices and chile peppers. But when it comes to garlic, the spicier the better! How does that make any sense? This Classic Homemade Hummus puts this theory to the test……..
How do you choose a favorite Mexican restaurant? Most people tend to gravitate to the establishment with the best chips and salsa, right? Yes, the Shredded Beef Chimichangas are just as important, but if the chips are stale, or the salsa tastes like tomato paste, it leaves a really bad impression in your memory. This Restaurant-Style Blender Salsa is the exact version of salsa that I love……..
Have you ever had one of those weeks where you just want to crawl up into a ball and ignore the world? Maybe just pretend that the outside world does not even exist? I just had one of those weeks, and I am trying very hard to move forward and figure things out…starting with this delicious Sweet Onion and Citrus Dressing……..
One of my favorite condiments is barbecue sauce, and ranch dressing, okay maybe it’s a tie between the two. I already switched up my Homemade Ranch Dressing to be Whole 30 and Paleo, this past weekend I came up with an Ancho-Orange Barbecue Sauce the is sugar-free, healthy, and still loaded with flavor to pour all over my Instant Pot Barbecue Ribs……..
I have a funny story to tell you about this Whole 30 Mole Sauce, and why it is mixed in with chocolate desserts! The Feast & Devour group voted on upcoming ingredients to use in the new year…and then re-voted in December to get chocolate in before Valentine’s Day. Guess who missed the memo? So a reminder was posted a couple of weeks ago to get our “chocolate” recipes into the document. Um, why did I just make Roasted Cauliflower and Garlic Soup? Oops, we are no longer doing cauliflower……..
Ranch Dressing is my all-time favorite, and apparently a lot of you feel the same way. My Dairy-free Ranch Dressing has been one of my most popular posts since it went live in August of 2013. When I set out to create a Whole 30 Ranch Dressing, I looked at my original recipe and realized that it was almost Whole 30 compliant, I just need to make one small tweak……..
