A blog chronicling life as I live it. Recipes, stories, tips, whatever tickles my fancy. Hopefully within the pages you'll find some new ideas, yummy meals and a new friend. I love life, I love people and I love the relationship that I have with Jesus. I'm a mom, a wife, a friend, a daughter. Come join with me a cup of coffee or tea!
There is just nothing like homemade BBQ sauce. I have yet to find a bottled sauce that I just absolutely love...though I'm open to suggestions. My mom always made her own and I guess making it myself always reminds me of her. The beauty of it is that you can really add anything you want to it. The sodium content will probably be much less and you won't find alot of extra garbage in there.
Here is the simple base: Everything is eye-balled and to taste, so no real measurements.
a few tablespoons butter
minced onion and garlic
Saute these items till tender.
Ketchup (about 1 cup)
Mustard..yellow or whatever you want (about 1/2-1 tbs.)
Brown Sugar (about 2-4 tbs)
To this I might add any or all the following:
a little vinegar (reg. or balsalmic)
Whatever you're in the mood for, go ahead and throw it in. This is one of those recipes that you just add and taste, add and taste. I always make it and forget to take pictures. Sorry. I heat it all to just under a boil and let it simmer for awhile to let the flavors work in. Yummy. I love this so much I could just eat it off the spoon. Now go BBQ.
