Blame it on the economy or my recent addiction to the Food Network, but I have become a cooking fool as of late. There’s just something about making your own dishes and sauces that is fulfilling, inexpensive, and just plain delicious. I haven’t eaten out in a month, and now when I have the chance to do so, I’m not interested. Same goes with sauces. I started barbecuing the other day, and ended up experimenting with barbecue sauce. Ketchup, honey, and some worcheshire sauce are usually enough for a basic glaze. But I just came across a juicy-sounding recipe that just may bring some fireworks to your mouth!
