Sauces, Dips and Spreads

Sauces, dips, and spreads are some of my favorite ways to bring flavor to any occasion! Whether I’m basting chicken thighs with homemade BBQ sauce or grilling steak with chimichurri, I love making my own condiments from fresh ingredients. Looking for a fun twist on a classic dip?

I've had it on my mind to turn my popular Banging Good Shrimp recipe into a summer dish you can make right on the grill. Now that the weather is warmer, we've been grilling almost every night. The excitement of being able to grill again and not dirty my kitchen is always great!

Last night I had the pleasure of having my friend Julia over to show me some of her delicious recipes. Julia is an amazing Italian cook. She can make leather taste good if she had to cook it! Her secret is simple, she cooks with only quality ingredients, like Pecorino Romano, good extra virgin olive oil and fresh herbs are all subtle differences that make food go from good to great. She always has on hand, a can of her own homemade filetto di pomodoro sauce she makes from scratch in the summer when tomatoes are at their peak and jars them to use throughout the year.
