The right sauces and gravies can turn an average meal into a spectacular meal! I have always felt that turkey gravy was the best part of a Thanksgiving feast, and would pour the gravy all over everything except my slice of
pumpkin or apple pie. When it comes to chicken, pork, beef, fish, vegetables and more, there are endless sauces that can add enormous flavor as well as moisture. Over time, I have come to realize the flavor power that gravies and sauces possess all across the board. Though I have not yet posted my beloved turkey gravy recipe, below you will find the beginning of my never-ending quest for delicious sauces.

Sauces can be made with endless ingredients, such as various types of cheese, wine, peanut butter, tomatoes, sweet peppers, cream, and a variety of Asian ingredients (to name only a few!). Sauces can also be made with meat, such as Genoise Sauce, a delicious gourmet French-style sauce made with ground beef and vegetables. I will never be able to gather enough sauce recipes, and hope that you will enjoy experimenting with sauces the way I do. A good sauce is hard to find!
