A friend of mine shared with me this yummy recipe for slow-roasted tomato sauce. It's a rich, delicious sauce that has one full head of garlic in it! The preparation work is very minimal; even though it takes several hours to make, most of this time is spent in the oven with occasional peeks to check on it. This would be a really great sauce to make on a lazy weekend day when you're relaxing as the scent will fill the house.

If you like cooking Asian food at home, then you should have a bottle of ponzu in your cupboard. It is an essential condiment and marinade with a wonderful, zingy flavor that pairs well with vegetables, seafood, and meats. Sadly, it's very little-known outside of Japan and it deserves more widespread knowledge.

Although we make most of our sauces at home, there are some times you just want to grab a bottle from the fridge, in this case, it's a sauce that's tasty on just about everything!

Wandering between booths with the sun on our faces, this is heaven.
