An Okie Girl’s Take on Homemade Spicy Peanut Sauce

True con­fes­sions: My refrig­er­a­tor is a messy, messy beast. I have 9 types of mus­tard ((that is a whole oth­er sto­ry)), at least 7 jars of pick­les ((spicy pick­les are my fave!!)), ketchup, mayo, sev­er­al sal­sas, sriracha, wing sauce, olives, pas­ta sauce, some ran­dom left­overs, cook­ie dough, jams, soy sauce, eggs, cream, milk — well, you get the pic­ture. I cringe at the thought of shar­ing an unfil­tered pho­to.

I first fell in love with this recipe 17 years ago ((but who’s count­ing)) when my moth­er-in-law, Cheryl, whipped it up for a hol­i­day get-togeth­er. Con­tin­ue read­ing

Heirloom Tomato Salsa ((straight from the garden!!))

You guys may have learned this by now, but let me just say it again for the record! Chips & sal­sa are my love lan­guage. It used to be Chips & sal­sa AND Diet Dr. Pep­pers from Son­ic, but I gave up the DDP addic­tion 10 months ago ((and it was SO hard to do — I am NEVER going back!!)). Any­way, about the chips and sal­sa… Con­tin­ue read­ing

Homemade Oven-Roasted Restaurant Style Salsa ((This is as GOOD as it gets!))

This could total­ly be one of “those” recipes. You know, one of the recipes that is kept secret — locked up and nev­er shared in it’s entire­ty?? Good for you — I am bad at keep­ing a good thing secret! In addi­tion to being the most per­fect sal­sa tast­ing sal­sa, it is just so very easy to make. You must try this at home!
