Sauces and Dressings


Apple Sauce

There is nothing better than homemade food, and this apple sauce is tremendously delicious! You can make them with peeled or unpeeled apples. You can choose any type of apples, but I prefer Granny Smith, since I don't want to puree it like baby food. I prefer my apple sauce to have chunks in every bite, and Granny Smith is great in all-purpose cooking, giving you a perfect balance of sweet-tart flavor and crisp texture-not grainy texture.


Caramel Sauce

This caramel sauce is so easy to make than you might think, and this is perfect for cakes, cookies, ice creams, crepes, cheesecakes, or you can simply devour a spoonful of this ooey-gooey caramel sauce and will totally captivate your sweet tooth!


Fresh Strawberry Coulis

This homemade fresh strawberry coulis is a perfect addition to numerous desserts and buttercream or frostings...they are also delightful on top of ice creams! Just look how vibrant the strawberries are, giving you a supreme combination of  sweetness, fruity and tangy flavor.

Apple and Mango Salad with Cilantro-Miso Dressingq

Apple and Mango Salad with Miso Cilantro Dressing

I was craving for miso soup today, but since I do not have much time today to cook. I'm kind of "what's in my fridge" today? Saw some fruits and veggies and the japanese miso I bought for my soup. I decided to prepare a quick salad that I can enjoy and share with my family. To be honest, I do not know what words to describe this dish, it was surprisingly good, especially to the cilantro lovers! This dressing is worth making a big batch that can be used for marinades on any type of meat, too! Enjoy sharing this recipe!


Italian Vinaigrette

Italian Vinaigrette is one of the salad dressings that can be tossed with variety of salad greens, and even pastas! It is so easy and inexpensive to make your own salad dressings at home.

Lemon Mustard Dressing1

Creamy Lemon-Mustard Dressing

A very easy-to-make salad dressing that is light, fresh and healthy. This can be tossed with salad leaves, veggies, can be drizzled over baked or grilled fish and for marinade, too! If you find this recipe tangy, simply cut back the amount of lemon juice, and add more of brown sugar. I tried tasting this dressing, and for having a meticulous taste buds; the sweetness and the tanginess are just both perfect, complimenting each others flavor perfectly!

Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette1

Creamy Balsamic Vinaigrette

Creamy? Dreamy? Yes indeed that this dressing should be labeled as "creamy-dreamy balsamic vinaigrette"; it is just simply-incredibly delicious, flavourful and full-bodied. If you want your vinaigrette more on the tangy side, then there is no need to add sugar. But if you prefer on a sweeter side, then the amount of balsamic vinegar must be fewer. This dressing can be tossed with variety of salads and veggies, with grilled chicken, or steak…perfect for lunch or dinner that you can easily prepare at home!

Mango-Lime Dressing1

Mango-Lime Cilantro Dressing

Mango, lime, and cilantro are in my top favorite ingredients to use all the time! Combining these three will give you an unbelievably good, and fresh-tasting dressing. This can be served perfectly not only with salads, fruits, or vegetables, but can be tossed as well with grilled shrimps; so much great flavors without worrying for calories! I have high hopes that you will get addicted to this recipe, this is heavenly delicious!


Carrot-Ginger Dressing

This salad dressing has simple ingredients that gives you exceptional flavors! It is light and refreshing with a unique and zesty-Asian twist. This dressing is best paired with either iceberg lettuce or romaine lettuce. If you have extra dressing left, use it as a dip for your favourite vegetables!


Ranch Dressing

Ranch dressing is an all-time American comfort food, and as a big fan of this dressing I would rather make this at home and can customize my dressing by adding lemon zest, cayenne pepper, or sweet paprika. If tossing this dressing with salad is not a charmer anymore for you, boil some potatoes with skin-on and slice it into cubes. Add some colby-jack cheese while they are hot and mix with ranch dressing…a delectable side dish that compliment most main dishes!
