This ketchup is the very best that I can ever remember tasting. It is clean, light and yet bold as well. It has a smooth flavor that will make you never want to have another type of ketchup ever. This is what the condiment tomato sauce should taste like and is better than any store bought I can remember. Once you try this flavorful to die for ketchup you won’t want another kind ever.

Here is an easy recipe to be able to make baking powder. It is just three simple ingredients and taste so much better than the store bought. Personally I think that it works better as well.
The reason that I have started making my own baking powder is due to allergies. This recipe makes sure that the food products that I am sensitive to are not used in my diet. I will probably keep using this recipe even if they were to remove what I am sensitive to out of the store brand baking powders. This will also be a great recipe for those that are highly sensitive to corn products. Even if the recipe and ingredients below are unusable by them, they will be able to to use the recipe, just make sure that the ingredients are safe for them to use.
1 tsp. Baking Soda (any brand that you are comfortable using)
2 tsp. Cream of Tartar (usually a byproduct of winemaking)
1 tsp. Starch (potato – rice – tapioca or other starch) Read more...(293 words, 2 images, estimated 1:10 mins reading time)
It’s something we live with every day. Some of us crave it more than others, but no matter where we get it from, there seems to be some confusion on exactly what we are drinking is called. It’s coffee, and it comes from many different places, but it originated in Ethiopia, where legend states that a farmer found his goats has been feeding on a strange berry that would keep them awake all night long. Soon, the legend was researched, and the berries were found, but it took Arabic traders to cultivate it and to bring it to the world.
Most of what we drink every day is usually made a robust Arabica kind of bean. For those whom like a smoother flavour, the Colombian bean is best, or you might be one of those coffee connoisseurs that likes to experiment with beans from other locales, like Hawaiian Kona beans or Jamaica Blue Mountain beans. One thing is certain, geologically unstable places tend to produce the best coffee. Most all the best coffee nations sit on the Pacific and Caribbean Rings of Fire, with the exception of Hawaii, which is pretty much growing from its own volcanoes. Let us also remember that the Mediterranean Sea is also a hot spot for great coffee, and it is also where great exotic coffee recipes are created.

This recipe is actually from my first experiments in making a mustard sauce. It is the third generation of the recipe but is still very close to the original formula. It is thick, goopy and yet oh so good to eat. It is both sweet and yet tangy at the same time, giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to mustard sauce. Anyone who tastes it is constantly asking where to get it. They are shocked when I tell them that it is homemade. The wife loves it, need I say more?

1 tbsp. mustard seed (cracked)

1 tsp. sea salt (up to 1/4 tsp. more to taste)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tbsp. sweet pickle juice

You might be wondering about the name of this recipe, the simple fact is that I didn’t have all 100% true ingredients and had to improvise. Even with the modifications this is an excellent grilling sauce, as you will see when you try it. As with all my cooking sauces, my wife just could not get enough of it.
I know that all of the ingredients here are not 100% traditional but with it tasting as good as it does no one is going to really car when they are eating it. It has its own unique flavor and I found it totally by accident. The recipe you see here is not the original one that I came up with but the one that reflects the wrong measurements that I did. The above is what was actually used and it tastes just oh so good. Read more...(836 words, 1 image, estimated 3:21 mins reading time)
