Why You Should Go DIY for Worcestershire Sauce

I’m definitely making this.

You've Got To Taste This

The Classic Burger

Worcestershire just may be the most mispronounced, misspelled food word in the dictionary.


Got it? Good. No? This might help.

Though it’s a struggle to pronounce, this flavor-bomb condiment adds savory depth when used to season burgers, stir-fry’s, fish, and more–and if you’d rather enjoy it the traditional British way, you can drizzle it over cheese toast (sound appealing to anyone?).

We’re convinced Worcestershire is the must-have summer condiment, and the best part is–it’s beyond easy to make a DIY version at home. And we’d highly recommend you do.

Why are we so passionate about nixing the bottle and making our own Worcestershire sauce? From-scratch Worcestershire sauce is truly: 1. So simple to throw together and much tastier than the bottled stuff and 2. The only thing (besides salt and pepper) you need to flavor the best burgers of your ever-loving life (see below for our best tips for making the perfect patty).

Onion Naan

Cooking Is My Sport

Onion Naan 1

So, it’s been over two years since I last made naan-style bread.

That’s a long time for me to wait to make something that I enjoy so much. But there was a pretty valid reason for it.If you’ve been following me and my blog for a while then you might remember this story. But if you haven’t been following and/or don’t remember then…what the heck? I’ll recap.

See, the last time that I did make naan, I kiiiiiinda started a fire in my oven.

Onion Naan 5

Oh, yeah. You read that right.

I made one or two pretty serious (and in retrospect, quite silly) mistakes and those mistakes ended up starting a fire. Not to worry. It wasn’t a huge one. No extinguisher was needed. 911 was not called. Everyone is fine. But it still kinda freaked me out.

Since it was my first time making naan I had done some research…

Báhn Mì Pizza

Báhn Mì Pizza

20151215_182330editI think I’ve found a new hobby, turning delicious foods into pizza. Like this incredibly, insanely delicious Bahn Mi pizza.

I am a big time menu planner and I usually try to plan at least a weeks’  worth of meals at a time, and sometimes more. I made this delicious carnitas recipe and knew I would have leftovers. That, on top of the fact I had this delicious aioli sitting in my cupboard just waiting to be used, randomly inspired this bomb a** pizza. 20151215_185919editThe first time I had Bahn Mi was several years ago at Saigon Sisters in Chicago and I think I just stopped drooling over it like… last week. Hands down one of my favorite flavor combos is south east asian flavors….scratch that, most asian flavors are my favorite.  But Thai, Vietnamese, Korean ❤ ❤ ❤ maybe it’s the rice, ginger, lemongrass, curry…

Just the Facts Charlie Brown: 50 Facts for the 50th Anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas

The Half Price Blog

This year marks the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas. To mark the occasion, here are 50 factoids, tidbits, quotes or observations about the little holiday special that only a blockhead could dislike.

1. Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip began in 1950 and by the early 60s was a full-blown phenomenon. The 1962 book Happiness is a Warm Puppy was a New York Times bestseller, and Time magazine featured Schulz’s characters on its April 9, 1965 cover.

2. In 1963, producer Lee Mendelson started work on a TV documentary about Schulz and Peanuts. The film included brief animated scenes created by Bill Melendez and original music by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. All the networks passed on it.
