Sage and Pepper Gravy Mix

Sage and Pepper Gravy Mix

I always have this mix in my pantry because it makes gravy making SO EASY! It’s also gluten free, if that matters to you. I love my gluten – and my favorite way to enjoy gravy is on the Minimalist Baker’s Best Damn Vegan Biscuits. […]

Easy Teriyaki Sauce

Easy Teriyaki Sauce

Oh my goodness – if I’d known making teriyaki sauce at home was this easy, I’d have quit buying it YEARS ago! This recipe is borrowed almost entirely from this post on budgetbytes.com. I added a little extra garlic and ginger because…well…that’s the way I […]

This recipe was given to me by a good friend in Tucson. She brought me a small container of it and I’m embarrassed to admit how quickly it was gone. I basically inhaled it. You know, it has never crossed my mind to put chili […]
