How to Make Cocktail Sauce

Many years ago when I was a waitress I had to learn how to make cocktail sauce. I worked at a restaurant where we made cocktail sauce to order. At the time it was a nuisance having to stop during a busy shift between running food and refilling drinks to hand-make condiments, but I perfected the skill and learned to make it quickly with just the right ratio of ingredients. I have since become the token cocktail sauce maker in my family and now I will share the tricks of the trade with you fine folks. It is ridiculously easy to make and way cheaper than ready made. Here is the recipe:

You will need ketchup, a lemon, worcestershire sauce and horseradish.

Start by squeezing about half of a fresh lemon into a bowl.

Add about half a cup of ketchup, about 5-6 shakes of worcestershire, several tablespoons of horseradish (more or less depending on how spicy you like it.) Stir well and serve. Its so easy right? Now you never have an excuse to buy store-bought cocktail sauce again!

It tastes way better, and you will feel accomplished knowing there are no preservatives.

Super Easy Individual Flatbread Pizzas

On occasion when I’m too tired to cook I relinquish my kitchen to my dear husband Adam. He’s been known to whip up some tasty treats and this is one of them. I have a feeling our would-be children will one day love this dish!

Start with the little flat-breads you can buy at any grocery store. Sometimes you can get them bogo which makes me very happy!

Brush them lightly with butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder. For a crispier crust, toast them briefly in the oven or toaster oven before topping.

Add a little pizza sauce, mozzerella, and whatever toppings you like. We like pepperoni.

Bake for 5-6 minutes or until desired crispness.

Et Voila! Dinner is ready, and I got to relax on the couch the whole time. 🙂
