Baked Bacon

Baked Bacon

Easy clean up Bacon! Just as crispy as frying over the stove top! From the original site: I love bacon, and really who doesn’t! But frying it can be a bit messy and you can easily burn it. To be honest, my Grandma made the best bacon on the planet. It was in a pan on the stove, low and slow for what seemed like hours. I’ve tried to duplicate her methods many a times, but never succeeded. Nothing will ever compare to her…

Pantry Friendly Tomato Sauce

Pantry Friendly Tomato Sauce

Delicious Homemade Tomato Sauce! From the original site: Being Italian and married into an Italian family, sauce is a topic of much debate. Too sweet, too acidic, don’t add this, add that…so many variables and everyone has their own preference (and by preference, I mean the right way of doing things ;) ) Enter Alton Brown’s Tomato Sauce. Looking over the ingredients I knew this was probably not going to be t…

DIY Taco Seasoning-Skip the Store-Bought Stuff! From the original site: I love making my own seasonings at home.

Soy - Free

Soy – Free “Soy Sauce”

There are several recipes out there for a “no – soy” soy sauce. However, all of them use either vegetable broth or beef broth as the base. AND, unless the brand you choose specifically states that it is “Soy Free” (and the majority of them aren’t) I’m still getting soy in the mix. You see, soy is a flavor enhancer. It’s added to vegetable broths and stocks to add color and that dreaded word… umami. Soybean oil is c…

Glossary of Whole Spices

There is a whole variety of whole spices available all over the world, but these are a few that you’ll likely find in every Indian household and are very commonly used in everyday cooking. From the original site: Complex flavors are built up in mixtures by using whole spices that compliment each other. Successfully making your own blend of spices gives a sense of achievement that nothing squeezed out of a tu…

Homemade Thai Masaman Curry Paste

Homemade Thai Masaman Curry Paste

The flavoring for Massaman curry is called Massaman curry paste although ready-made pastes are now readily available but with all those artificial flavoring they are nothing in taste compared to homemade pastes prepared with fresh ingredients. From the original site: This Masaman Paste is much more spicier than other Thai Curry Pastes so do not add too much of it in curry, the quantity given below for Ma…

Simply Hummus

Simply Hummus

These days I am kinda obsessed with Mediterranean dishes, I feel there is something succulent about subtle and aromatic Mediterranean flavors, you just can’t have enough of it. Like Baba Ganoush, Hummus is also another Mediterranean dip made out of humble ingredients – chickpeas, olive oil and tahini (sesame paste). Hummus is an Arabic word for “chickpeas” and the dip is pop…
