One of the best aspects of having a food-themed season here at Sweet Athena is the opportunity to talk “favorites.” While I’m a fan of experimenting with new things, there’s something special about trying out someone’s very favorite anything. This kind of exchange involves a bit of a risk; it’s like saying, “this is part of me…do you like it?”
I love these kinds of opportunities. This risk-taking. This chance to get to know a little gem about someone else that goes beyond a simple question. (Really, how much do you really learn from knowing someone’s favorite color?)
With this in mind, I challenge you to share a lil’ favorite something of yours. Whether it’s a food, a recipe, an ingredient, share away! I’d love to try it.
I’ll go first.
Honey Mustard Sauce
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon curry powder
Simply mix and slather it on to whatever your heart desires. I found this zesty version through Southern Living’s fantastic recipe Honey-Pecan Chicken Thighs. If you are into chicken, this recipe is a must-try. However, the sauce would be awesome on many things: veggies, tofu, beans, etc.
P.S. Sauces are a great way to make “the usual” meals more interesting, and I’m always looking for ways to mix things up. With this in mind, I’m going to be featuring a few more saucy concoctions over the next couple of months!
