Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce Recipe at Epicurious

Dr. Pepper Barbecue Sauce Recipe at Epicurious
I too love this bbq sauce but have added my own twists. I only had salted butter so I omitted the salt, then melted the butter and skimmed the butter fats before adding the onions and garlic, so it was essentially clarified butter. I also like a nice cherry flavor so I used a mix of half dr pepper half black cherry soda, but I bet cherry dr pepper would also do the trick. I also didn't have the ancho chili powders, but I did have some scotch bonnet sauce which I used about a teaspoon. My wife doesn't like the spicy bbq sauces, so I gotta keep it on the low, for me, I would probably triple that amount or more.

The Web’s Best Slider Recipes We never thought a culinary revolution would spawn from a White Castle (even though we think more food should come in Crave Cases), but sliders have become a bit of a trendy food over the last couple of years.

What can be more kid friendly than chicken nuggets, even the pickiest kids like them. Serve them with ketchup, bbq sauce or whatever you like to dip your nuggets into.

Peter Clifford Online [tweetthis] TIMELINE – 18th JULY 2012 10.14 GMT: In Libya’s first elections since 1965 (but no political parties allowed) and first totally free elections since 1952, a liberal, secular union, the National Forces Alliance, won 39 out of the 80 seats reserved for political parties.

And you (along with the kids, fingers crossed!) will love them, too. The Web’s Best Sandwich Recipes Few foods allow for such creativity as the humble sandwich. By definition, it’s just bread and . . . stuff. PB & J on white? That’s a sandwich. A mountain of pastrami and a bit of slaw between rye? How To Make Croissants [Chocolate Croissants, Pumpkin Spice Croissants, and Cinnamon Sugar Croissants] I hope you’re ready to see a billion underexposed photos of the same exact dough over and over and over again. Please say yes, because you will be rewarded with this. This was a… project. To say the least.

Ryan’s Bolognese Sauce The thing about my recent houseguest Ryan is that he’s an exceptional cook. Bottom line: the guy just flat knows what he’s doing in the kitchen, wrestling pretty much any ingredient to the ground with complete confidence. If he wasn’t a minister, I’d say he missed his calling.

Decades of partial isolation imposed by Gaddafi have left the oil-rich country's economy reeling from a raft of sanctions and its government in a diplomatic no man's land.

Angry Asian Creations: spaghetti-Os with venison meatballs i must confess to a profligacy towards certain canned fast foods. it's a reminder of my childhood, summers spent with cousins, sweaty and always ravenous for quick meals that required a can opener, microwave safe bowl and 3 minutes to nuke. thankfully, i have outgrown this kind of eating, and with dw's encouragement, let go of such reckless indulgences. if i am to partake in such folly, it should at least be nourishing and good in taste. i was recently inspired to recreate a childhood favorite. keep in mind, this pasta bowl is thicker, creamier and meatier than it's distant canned cousin, much more dimensional with specks of kale and the heat of chili pepper. tucking into this, it reminds me of home. Redesigning the Nutrition Label: Here's One Scientist's Clever Proposal - Food Nutrition labels can be a little like art galleries, or condoms. We know where they are. We’re happy they’re there. But too many of us don’t bother using them. So, we're hoping you can help us change that. This is the last week for sending in ideas for redesigning the nutrition label, the mandated, standardized guide to the calories, fats, and sugars in packaged foods, that, as Fast Company's Suzanne LaBarre put it, “has got the visual charm of a Microsoft spreadsheet and the readability of Beowulf.”
