Drown Your Meat In This Simple And Delicious 4th Of July BBQ Sauce!!

Filed under: FoodRecipesMariko Amekodommo

Markio Knives

Happy 4th of July! I'm looking forward to a day by the pool, and some action on the grill. BBQ is one of my favorite foods in the entire world, so here is a BBQ sauce recipe that can be ready in minutes without the preservatives and fake ingredients of the store bought brands. Customize your sauce by adding a splash of hot sauce, garlic, liquid smoke - or even whiskey!

1 cup ketchup
1/4 sweetener (brown sugar, molasses, honey or agave)
1 Tbsp mustard (I like a super spicy dijon)
1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce

Add all ingredients to small saucepan over medium heat, and stir until combined. Bring to a boil, and continue stirring until all ingredients are dissolved and reduced (about 5-10 minutes). Use as a marinade or dipping sauce for your favorite meat, and enjoy!

It wouldn't be a Super Bowl party without the spinach dip! Here is an easy and healthy version that is better than the fake stuff you find in the deli section. If you like hot spinach dip, add 1/2 cup grated mozzarella cheese, and bake at 400 for 15 minutes until the top begins to bubble.

1 box frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1 1/2 cups plain greek yogurt (substitute 1/2 cup sour cream or mayo for richer flavor)
1 packet onion soup mix
1/2 cup chopped water chestnuts, red bell pepper or artichoke hearts

Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well. Refrigerator for at least 2 hours, and voila! Serve with your favorite chips or bread, and enjoy!

Gatorade Removes Flame Retardant Ingredient After 15-Year-Old's Petition

Filed under: FoodHealth

gatorade-flame-retardant-removed-petition.jpg

Okay, so if you're somewhat confused, we understand. We're just learning this too.

Gatorade apparently has an ingredient, brominated vegetable oil (BVO), that can be used as a flame retardant!

When in Gatorade, BVO actually keeps certain flavors mixed in, or else the flavoring ingredient would float to the surface of the drink.

Sarah Kavanaugh, 15, realized people probably shouldn't be drinking BVO, so she started a petition on Change.org.

And PepsiCo, owner of Gatorade, listened! They're replacing the ingredient! That was easy!

Subway could take a page out of Pepsi's book! LOLz!

It's so amazing that they reacted so quickly to the online petition. They just saved themselves a lot of consumer grief.

Way to go, Sarah!

Whatever you call what Gwyneth Paltrow is on, don't you dare call it a diet! Ha!

Even the healthiest eaters in the world have their vices, and in 2013 Gwyn has decided to revamp her eating habits instead of going on something like a diet — which means she won't be giving up her pasta and cheese!

She even explains in a GOOP newsletter herself that she enjoys Italian-style cuisine too much to limit herself. Here's what she says:

Chocolate, Peanut Butter, Banana Beer Is Real

Filed under: Wacky, Tacky & TrueTY KUAlcohol

chocolate-pb-banana-beer.jpg

There's not too much to say here… there's a new beer on the block.

It sounds more like a dessert than an ale, and maybe it's an even mix of both.

Brewers at a company called Rogue teamed up with Portland's VooDoo Doughnut to create the potentially disgusting or sinfully delicious
