Some people use the library as a means of saving money. They check out the book instead of buying it, read it, and then return it. Money saved. That’s great if it works for you, more power to you. It tends to have an opposite effect with me. I check out a couple of cookbooks from the library and before you can say “wow, look at Pam saving money”, I’ve all ready decided that I can’t live without them, and I’ve ordered them from Amazon. And if your saying…”wow, Pam’s husband must be really understanding”, um…I’ve got six magic little words for you…”I get home from work first”. Problem solved.
My latest acquisition is Sara Foster’s Casual Cooking: More Fresh Simple Recipes from Foster’s Market. Everything in it looks good, seriously, everything. So, I guess it might be kind of odd that the first thing I tried was a condiment, but I’m glad I did. I know we all know how to flavor sour creams and mayo with an herb, but what I like about this is the addition of the hot sauce. I never thought about putting hot sauce in my flavored sour cream. And since there is a possibility that you haven’t thought of it either, I to share it with you. This is great with tacos, burritos, quesadillas, whatever!!
