Some Things You Should Know

I started this blog a long time ago as when it was "What's Cooking at My house" and before my mad photography skills kicked in and before we went gluten free. With that said you never know what you might find here. There's a little something for everyone I believe. But my hope is to provide more recipes with better photos to tempt your tummy. *smile*

Homemade BBQ Sauce

I'm a label reader and I don't like what I see on the BBQ sauce labels. High Frutose Corn Syrup is usually first in line. So here is a more healthy alternative. That is if you use organic ketchup that doesn't have High Frutose Corn syrup in it. If you don't then don't bother! LOL.

1 cup Organic Ketchup
2 TBS. Sucanat or sugar
2 TBS. Molasses
1 TBS. Soy Sauce
1 tsp . Liquid Smoke

If you want to make a honey bbq sauce substitute the honey for the molasses!

Combine all ingredients together and use immediately. Well in other words don't store it. Make only what you are going to use. You can adjust things to your liking. Like maybe adding more molasses or less sugar. It's just trial and error but this is a great base BBQ Sauce.

I don't use BBQ sauce that much, but this sounds great! I think you should link it to WFMW tomorrow - a lot of people would probably like it!
