BBQ SauceEasy Barbecue Sauce

This is an easy barbeque sauce for chicken and steaks. This is a sweet, mildly tart sauce. You can adjust the amounts of vinegar and molasses to taste.

Fine tune the sweetness and tartness to get just the right barbeque sauce for your family then use this as a base sauce. Add smoke flavor. Substitute honey or brown sugar or even maple syrup for the molasses.

1 small onion
3 8-ounce cans tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup cider vinegar

Finely dice the onion. Mix all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Stir and simmer for 30 minutes or until the onion pieces are well cooked and the sauce is thick.

In the 4/23 newsletter Linda requested Golden Corral meatloaf recipes. This was in a local paper recently. I have not had the meat loaf at Golden Corral, so can't promise that this will taste exactly the same, but thought I would send the recipe since no one else responded to your request. I hope this helps. Because we are on a low salt diet, I omit salt from my cooking and baking.

Hi Nancy and all :) We are all trying to eat healthier with my daughter on Weight Watchers. So far she has lost 9.7 lbs in 3 weeks so she is pretty happy. She would be a lot happier still if her boyfriend who will eat what she does but subs other foods into his diet hadn't lost 16 lbs in that same time LOL. Anyways I tried a new recipe on them tonight and it was pronounced a keeper and to go into regular rotation so thought I would share it. It's quick and not much cooking time so doesn't heat up kitchen as badly and with the summer heat coming soon we got to keep that in mind too :) Hope you enjoy it if you try it.

How to Freeze Zucchini for Baking

We love the moistness of zucchini bread, cookies, and muffins and have frozen grated fresh zucchini for later baking. Here’s how to do it:

Wash and trim the zucchini. If you are using large squash, remove the seedy pulp and save only the firmer flash. Do not skin.
Grate the zucchini.

Stir a little salt—a teaspoon per large bowl will do. The salt will draw moisture from the squash. Let it sit in a bowl for an hour.

Drain the grated squash in a colander. Gently press the grated squash with your hand to force off more water. Most of the salt will drain off with the water.

Measure the squash in two cup increments and freeze in freezer bags.

We’ve never done anything but grate, extract part of the water, measure, and freeze. The squash seems to last just fine over the winter. Some sites, including governmental ones, recommend steaming your grated squash before freezing to increase the storage life. If you choose to do so, use the method below:

Place a small amount of squash in a steamer basket or sieve, no more than 3/4-inch deep. Bring two inches of water to a rapid boil on the stovetop. Place the squash above the boiling water and place a lid on the pot to capture the steam. Steam for about two inches or until the squash turns translucent. Drain off the excess water and repeat with other batches. Freeze as above.
