My Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe

I do not know about you, but I really love those thick, rich and bold BBQ sauces.

Not those thin and always vinegar tasting ones so many places spill over the food—and guests over the tables…

So, here we go—with the recipe, not the spilling:

1/2 cup molasses
2 - 3 cups ketchup or is it catsup?
Cognac, brown sugar and white pepper to your taste.

Obviously, if you have kids trying it—use less cognac ;)

I prefer white pepper because it has this nice sly ability to taste like almost no heat, but then sneak around your back and kick your ass!

Cook under high heat for some 20 minutes. Don’t forget to stir our you’ll spent the rest of the day with scrapping your walls, ceiling, …

Let stand for a couple of hours.

Broil again for a few more minutes. For the extra kick—add more cognac!

Enjoy!

How to eat Gummi Bears

Or better: Gummibären.
After all, the best ones come from Haribo, Hans Riegel in Bonn, Germany external.

Anyway, back to the question: How does one eat them?

Where I used to live in Germany most would start by biting the Gummibär’s head off.
Some say that is animal cruelty and just lick them.

How do you eat Gummibären?

Red Sardines

Another one from my mom :)

  • (Black) bread
  • Sardines
  • Tomato paste
  • Cheese (Gouda, but American will do too)


It really taste better with black bread.
black bread
Alternatively use dark bread and toast it until it becomes hard. Spread tomato paste evenly over the bread. Add some black or white pepper if you like it spicy. Take a sardine, remove the bones and lay it on the bread. Spread some tomato paste over it and top with the cheese.

No put it in the oven at medium heat for some five minutes to get everything hot. Broil I for a few moments to get the cheese melted.

Bon appetite!

Sailors Love

An old yet very easy recipe I learned from my mom:

Blend a fresh apple with mayonnaise (in case you are wondering - yes, I make mayonnaise myself!) and some pepper. Makes a wonderful sauce that tastes perfect on mackerel.

Dedicated journalism?

The lady at Fox 5 news reporting about the drought in Loudoun County talks about the crispy grass.

Doesn’t one has to taste to know what is crispy?
