PostHeaderIcon It’s National Pasta Month………… says the Italian girl

Cucina Antica National Pasta MonthWho am I kidding? Being Italian means that EVERY MONTH is National Pasta Month, but for everyone else, this happens in October. You really don’t know what you are missing though. Along with my family, Cucina Antica is celebrating National Pasta Month throughout the month with delicious, authentic Italian recipes. What better time to try new recipes?? By adding artisan ingredients, like Cucina Antica cooking sauces, you are choosing  a better-for- you option that is full of authentic flavor!!

I have tried a lot of sauces in my, years but, Cucina Antica cooking sauces are made with imported Italian San Marzano tomatoes, no artificial preservatives, lower sodium, no added sugar, no added water, gluten-free and no tomato paste. WHAT? Did your taste buds just perk up? Cucina Antica provides at-home chefs products made through an artisanal production method that allows consumers to cook the sauces without losing any flavor. Guess what else? They are one of few sauces that are non-GMO verified!

Give me red tomato gravy and I can make just about anything with it. Pumpkin on the other hand, not really something I have worked with before. But, I was determined I was going to figure out something to make with it! I would definitely have to ponder this one for a few more days.

PostHeaderIcon Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe

Easy Homemade BBQ Sauce - DelightfulChaos.comDinner is always a big theatrical event in our home. I always go over board. I decide at the last minute to make something from scratch. I suppose that isn’t a bad thing but it definitly makes for some hair pulling nights. Some nights, there are six kids here between the ages of 13 and 4. It can be quite interesting. I hope that I get better at planning ahead. Organization is not my strong suit but I do try.

Yesterday it was ribs for dinner. Hell yea I said ribs! I think it is just terrible if you donot love ribs and BBQ sauce ;). In my opinion, the bbq sauce is what makes or breaks a good batch of ribs. I scouted out Pinterest for a recipe. I was so overwhelmed with how many there were. I also needed one that would fit with what I had on hand. After looking atm what felt like, 100 recipes, I put together this one. I was pleased with it for the most part. I thought I could taste a little too much ketchup flavor but, I have also been sick. Everyone else said it was really good. However, you know kids and significant others lie to spare your feelings so, you be the judge!

It take 10 minutes to put together and an hour to simmer. Don’t be like me, plan ahead!This recipe makes enough to store for later, if you have canning jars on hand. I will also suggest that you use brand products. I say this because you just seem to get a much better flavor. I listed what I used but of course, use what you have! Also, this is not a sponsored post.

Please leave a comment and let me know what you think! Do you have any tweaking ideas?
