Tzatziki Sauce

Tzaziki sauce is refreshing and low in fat. I would highly recommend that you seed the cucumber before mixing into the sauce to avoid excess liquid and only use fresh squeezed lemon juice.

Vegan Fish Sauce

We have many different dietary needs/wants in our house. T1.5D, pescetarian, and two picky teens. Because of this I am very familiar with making subtle changes to recipes to satisfy everyone's needs.

Sugarless BBQ Sauce

Most commercial barbecue sauces are loaded with sugar. (16-30 grams per quarter cup, even as high as 44 grams!) It doesn't have to be that way. This one has a secret ingredient - diet cola. It's best to use one sweetened with Splenda, but any will do (aspartame tends to [...]
