Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Authentic Greek Tzatziki

Serve this, as a refreshing dip, with hunks of artisan whole grain crusty bread and/or bread sticks as a snack or appetizer. The Greeks also serve it with roasted lamb or any kind of grilled meat. I also love to serve this with an assorted vegetable platter & it's even good as a healthy sandwich spread. The uses for this sauce/dip is really limitless!

Serves: 3 to 4

Avocado Crema

Avocado Crema

The question is... what can't you use this on? It's so great as a topping/garnish on all Mexican Dishes like Tacos, Chili, Burritos, Huevos Rancheros & so on. I use it on my Loaded Mexican Hot Dogs along with mustard (see recipe in the Sandwiches category). I also love it on scrambled eggs, it gives them a scrumptious creaminess... I'm sure you'll love it!

Horseradish Steak Sauce

Horseradish Steak Sauce

A chef at a posh country club buffet gave me the ingredients for this terrific steak dipping sauce. Unfortunately, he didn't share the measurements for each ingredient. So, I made it at home & after about 5 tries I nailed it! I usually serve this with steak or prime rib, but you can also use it to add a kick to other food items (see Tip# 1).

Serves: 2 to 3

Horsey Sauce

Horsey Sauce

Everybody that's tasted this has always asked me to give them the recipe, but I've rarely given it out... now I'm sharing it with you! It's really a very simply combo of ingredients, but it really adds that great flavorful punch to burgers & other grilled sandwiches.

Serves: 2

Ranch Dip

Ranch Dip

My favorite restaurant for ordering hot/spicy buffalo wings has the best Ranch Dip I've ever had. They wouldn't share the recipe, so I took some home & after many tries I was able to recreate it and the results tastes exactly like theirs. I mostly serve this dip with wings, along with cut up celery sticks & whole scallions. This also makes a great dip for a cut up fresh vegetable platter.

Yield: 3 - 1/4 cup servings

Creamy Dill Sauce

Creamy Dill Sauce

Serve this irresistible sauce, instead of tartar sauce, as a dipping side for your favorite seafood. I feel that tartar sauce covers up the taste of most fish, whereas this sauce enhances the flavor. It's especially tasty on salmon, trout & crabcakes. I've also used it, draped lightly, on a variety of vegetables with great success & rave reviews from those I've served it to!

Serves: 2 to 4
