I have to give a shout out to all my visitors.WORLDWIDE!!Without you, I would not have a voice in the world of food blogging, and I thank you all for taking the time to read my blog and taking the time to pass the word around..
Let's talk condiments. Mustard, salad dressing, mayo, chili sauce, hot sauce, hoisin sauce. I can go on for my love of "extras" it seems to never end... I love the things that make my food go..." Oh, now were talking." Ketchup, burger sauce and b.b.q sauce are the quintessential three amigo's of a good burger.
Of course most grocery chains have heeps of products to choose from, but have you ever made your own? A nice little treat to give your food an extra zing, and I promise your mouth is going to thank you.
