Blueberry Goat Cheese Spread

by TT April 28th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I really enjoy having fruit included in wraps.  This addition of fruit started in a typical way, adding cranberry sauce to my turkey sandwich during post-Thanksgiving leftover meals.  Seeing an apple and turkey sandwich on a menu ages ago was what inspired me to try other combinations.  Since then

Almost Tartar Sauce

by Jane Wangersky April 25th, 2014| Recipes, Simple Solutions, Spreads & Sauces
Tartar sauce is one of those sauces whose names give you no idea what's in them; for the record, it contains no cream of tartar. Most people have no idea what's in it, but most people expect to see it on the table, or in a little packet on

Asian Lettuce Wrap Sauce

by TT April 21st, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Ever since I discovered lettuce wraps several years ago, I have been obsessed with them.  I don't have the biggest of appetites, so using lettuce as the delivery system for a meal has been fabulous.  Instead of being able to sample only one burrito or wrap, I can have

Italian Dipping Oil

by TT April 14th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces, Tapas Monday
Before my husband and son started their get healthy diet, we had a Tapas Monday dinner with an Italian theme.  There were grilled eggplant wheels topped with seasoned ricotta, garlic and cheese chicken sausage bites, and homemade focaccia served with dipping oil.  It was an indulgent and tasty

Sweet Asian Barbecue Sauce

by TT April 7th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces, Tapas Monday
Last week my almost 18 year old son and husband started a get healthy diet.  Neither needed a major change in diet, just a reduction in portions and elimination of too frequent splurges (chips, ice cream, etc.)  With Tapas Monday falling on Day 1 of the diet, I wanted

Artichoke Dipping Sauce- Balsamic Version

by TT February 3rd, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Two weeks ago I wrote about the dipping sauce that my family enjoyed with our steamed artichokes.  Theirs was a creamy, mayonnaise-based sauce.  While it was tasty in its own right, I like only a small amount of mayonnaise.  Thus, I really wasn't interested in dipping leaf after

Artichoke Dipping Sauce- Mayo Version

by TT January 20th, 2014| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I love cooking and baking and do both fairly well, so I'm used to receiving food requests from friends and family.  On weekend mornings there is clamoring for cinnamon rolls or scones.  During tv-based events there are requests for espinaca or homemade potato skins.  However, the other week I

Lighter Blue Cheese Dip

by TT November 4th, 2013| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Last week I published my recipe for Buffalo Cauliflower Florets.  As I was working on the recipe for buffalo florets, I knew that there needed to be a blue cheese dip to accompany it.  Without the dipping sauce, it feels more like spicy cauliflower instead of buffalo cauliflower. 

Cherry Port Sauce

by TT August 20th, 2012| Spreads & Sauces
When I eat poultry, I love having it with some sort of fruit sauce or chutney.  A slice of turkey and cranberry sauce with whole berries; duck with blueberry chutney; chicken with cherry port sauce.  I find the fruit sauces to be a delightful addition of flavor, moistness, and

TT Jr.’s Favorite Compound Butter

by TT Jr. July 11th, 2012| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
Every other week or so my family has an Italian dinner.  And every time we have it, I pig out!  Which for me is abut two bowls of pasta, but still I eat more than usual.  I adore pasta; it is probably my favorite Italian food.  The thing I

Vegtable Cream Cheese

by TT Jr. May 14th, 2012| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
I love bagels.  I just love them, specifically toasted.  And with cream cheese.  They are so delicious when they are still hot and the cream cheese starts to melt on them.  My favorite flavor is salt bagels, and they are delicious with plain cream cheese, but sometimes that gets

Peachy Cocktail Sauce

by TT April 26th, 2012| Recipes, Spreads & Sauces
In an attempt to broaden my 14 year old's seafood palate, I decided to cook tuna last week.  Unfortunately, the fish counter that I visited had none available, so I went with her current favorite fish, salmon, and jumbo shrimp.  Shrimp is a type of seafood that she doesn't
