April 28, 2022
A bowl of simple honey barbecue sauce

When the weather starts to get warmer here in South Carolina, I find that I don’t want to cook as much indoors. I prefer to keep the oven off and instead, I grill more. And I’m not sure why but I enjoy barbecue sauce more during the warm months than I do when it’s cold outside. I guess I’m just weird like that! Actually, I think it just…

Homemade Greek Dressing

June 10, 2019

I am a huge fan of Greek Salad. Seriously…I love them. So much so that I have created a Greek Burger that is topped with some. It is so yummy I almost can’t stand it! Now that I’m trying to avoid many of the store-bought versions of my favorite products, I knew I needed to make my own Greek dressing.

Doesn’t everyone like pizza? I sure do. And once in a while I just need to whip together a pie and enjoy! Of course, one night when I was craving a pizza, I was pulling out all of the ingredients and realized that I didn’t have any pizza sauce. Of course, I also try to do as much as I can to do everything from scratch. So I…

Homemade Ketchup

April 9, 2017

Ketchup has to be the most popular condiment out there. But most store-bought versions are full of high fructose corn syrup or refined sugar….which I really try to avoid when possible! And it is used for so many different things and in so many different recipes, that it was really important for me to do clean homemade ketchup. What would a burger or french fries be without it?…

Onion Soup Mix

November 5, 2016

I have several very yummy recipes that I’ve really wanted to convert to real food recipes. But one problem that I encountered was that some of my favorites contain onion soup mix. I was surprised at just how many casseroles call for it! So I picked up a package of onion soup mix when I was at the store and read the ingredients…..Yikes! I just couldn’t buy the…

Simple Chocolate Syrup

September 2, 2015

Mmmm…..chocolate! Now, who doesn’t love chocolate? Well, there are a few people out there who don’t adore chocolate. But I am definitely NOT a part of that crowd!  I don’t have to gorge myself on chocolate every day, but a few times I week I do enjoy indulging in some chocolatey goodness! One thing that I have really missed since starting to eat a real food diet is…

Cowboy Caviar

June 4, 2015

I absolutely love homemade salsa! When it’s fresh, it just can’t be beaten. And this version of salsa, also known in some circles as Cowboy Caviar is absolutely divine! I was given this recipe years ago and used to make it all of the time and forgot about it. That was until a trip to a local Trader Joe’s, where I spotted their brand or jarred Cowboy Caviar.…
