Month: January 2017

A Monthly Giveaway!

Every month, Sauce and Shake plan to give away something we consider a staple in our kitchen or bar. To win, make one of the recipes we posted this month, then send us a picture on Instagram and tell us what made you happy…

Sick Day Chicken Soup

Chicken noodle soup is supposedly the cure for everything, but what are you supposed to do when there is no one to make it for you? Everybody in my house got sick this week, so I was still in charge of comforting us with…

Ahi Poke

I love raw fish. Sashimi, sushi, crudo-however you want slice, wrap, or pile it, I will devour it with gusto. I realize that not everyone shares my enthusiasm for any fish, let alone raw, but if there was ever a recipe to change that…

Tempura Night

Fried foods, while not exactly at the top of the nutrition chain, are a delight to make and eat. While the idea of hot oil and drippy batter may seem intimidating, it’s really fun once you get the hang of it. Even my husband,…

Pork Carnitas

I like to have sandwiches the first day I make pulled pork, and then serve Carnitas the following night. It is an especially good plan if you make the shoulder on Thursday or Friday so you can take it easy over the weekend. Shake…

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

Luxury from Economy: Deglazing, Gravies and Reductions

Sauce is my favorite thing to make (I’m sure this surprises you greatly.)  Whether I’m working on the long, slow reduction of demi-glace or a quick, punchy gastrique, I always feel just a little more accomplished when sauce is involved.  I have two staple…

Finding Gatsby in New Orleans: The Sidecar

We rang in 2017 with quite the bang in the form of a canapé and champagne filled soiree accompanied by our delightfully colorful friends and family. Lots of cocktail dresses, delicate flutes and overly sparkly baubles abounded and such sights always make me think…

Cottage Pie

Cottage Pie was my first true victory in the kitchen. More colloquially known as Shepard’s Pie, they are essentially the same dish, except technically Cottage Pie is made from beef, whereas the Shepard fills his with lamb or mutton. I originally got the recipe…

Tortellini Soup

Tortellini soup is delicious and comes together in less than fifteen minutes, making it ideal for a weekend lunch or light, homey weeknight dinner. As a bonus, all the ingredients can be frozen or kept in your pantry for months at a time, so…
