I originally started this blog as a place to store tried and true recipes for my family. It didn't take long to discover how supportive and fun the blog community was and I became hooked! I rarely create my own recipes, but I still hope you'll enjoy the recipes that I find and tweak a bit.
I'm playing a little game right now, it's called, "I'm Not Going Grocery Shopping Until I've Managed To Use Up Most of the Food That Is Already In My Freezer Or Pantry."
And it's taking FOREVER!
I guess I'm just in a spring cleaning mode right now, but I'm having an increasingly harder time buying food when I have a ton of food, just not food that fits in my meal planning. So that's what we've been eating lately. And while on occasion I don't mind whipping up a box of Hamburger Helper (just finished the last box, thank you!), I just don't think I can take many more freezer or boxed meals.
The bonus to having frozen salmon burgers for dinner, is at least it lends itself to something homemade, which is why I happily whipped up this fantastic tartar sauce. It was really easy to put together, and since I apparently have a ton of random food to use up, it didn't require an extra trip to the store either. This is one of those things that you want to make a day or two in advance with time, the flavors just get stronger and more delicious. We all loved this tartar sauce, it's so tangy and perfect for all of your seafood needs.
1 cup lowfat mayonnaise 1/2 cup chopped sweet onions (less if you're not big on onion flavor) 2 tablespoons dill pickle relish 1 teaspoon Old Bay Seasoning, or any preferred seasoning, seasoned salt would be good too 1 teaspoon dried dill 1 fresh garlic cloves, minced 1 tablespoon capers, chopped
1. In a small bowl, combine all ingredients.
2. It is best to make this about an hour before you plan to serve it so the flavors can blend.
