Some call it gravy while others call it sauce. Regardless of what you call it, homemade is best! But when you don’t have the time you need to turn to jarred sauce. I like to use Rao’s sauce in my times of need.
I rarely find sauces or mixes or anything packaged to be very good. But Sukhi’s Classic Indian Curry Sauce is delicious and easy. It is as good, if not better, than anything you’ll have at an Indian restaurant.
Making my own ricotta cheese is on my never ending ‘to-do’ list! Until I get around to that, I need to continue to buy it pre-made. This is not a bad thing because I am addicted to the Calabro brand ricotta. I love it- I just eat it right out of the tub! Its light and fluffy and flavored perfectly!
Sometimes you just don’t want all that oil coating the bottom of your pan, but you also don’t want anything to stick so that is when olive oil spray comes in handy. I find that Trader Joe’s makes the best one for the best price so I stock up when I go. Remember- don’t use it on a stainless steel pan- it is impossible to get off. Use On non-stick pans only!
I discovered Alexrod Sour cream about a year ago. I love it because of its texture. It doesn’t have that watery film on the top when you open it like some other brands. Its downfall? It never seams to be on sale!
