Homemade BBQ Sauce with French's {Giveaway}

Summer may be winding down, but it's not over yet! Keep your grill going strong alongside friends and family and amp up your summer dishes with the help of new French’s condiments! The perfect pairing for any dish, get creative with your menu with French’s new Spicy or Sweet Yellow Mustards and French’s Tomato Ketchup - made with 100% Canadian tomatoes!

What's a BBQ without some sides - take a look at some of our favourite recipes that are perfect for every summer BBQ and get together.

My family is really big on using condiments with our food, especially during the summertime with BBQ'd meat. In fact, when my daughter was really young, she used to insist on what she called "bip" (her way of saying "dip") with every single item of food, regardless of what it was.

When I was younger, my father used to joke with me, "Amanda, would you like some ham with your ketchup" as I was the only one in the family who had ketchup with her ham, but I liked A LOT of ketchup!

Roasted Radishes

My family has joined a farm share this year, if you haven't heard of a farm share or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) before here's how it works. CSA members pay at the start of the growing season for a share of the anticipated harvest and once harvesting begins, they receive weekly shares of vegetables and fruit. Our CSA program also includes cut flowers, eggs and bread as part of their weekly pickup arrangement. So stay tuned for many recipes as we discover new and old favourites with veggies. Since the start of this season we have been enjoying lettuce, rhubarb, spinach, bok choy, kale, asparagus, summer turnip, chives, dill, mint, green onions and radishes. Check out my recipe for roasted radishes.

Roasted Radishes

  • 1-2 bunches of radishes, trimmed and I cut mine in half or quarters, can also be left whole
  • 2T extra virgin olive oil
  • 1t thyme
  • 1/2t garlic powder or fresh
  • Fresh ground pepper and a sprinkle of salt
Step 1 

Toss radishes in a bowl with the oil, thyme, garlic and salt and pepper

Step 2
Roast on a baking sheet at 425 for approx 20 minutes, giving the pan a good shake every 5-8 minutes.

Step 3
Serve hot, for a fresh taste squeeze fresh lemon juice on top.

Add 1T honey to your mix!

Family Thoughts 


Everyone really enjoyed these, it really takes the bite out of the radish and tastes delicious! Great way to use an abundance of radishes too.

Eggnog Muffins

My children LOVE muffins, so I am always on the lookout for a new muffin recipe to try. These muffins are festive, as they contain Eggnog and they are a delicious treat. My friend Shannon who sells Pampered Chef products shared this recipe with me and I cannot WAIT to try it out during the holidays.

Eggnog Muffins

3 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ cup sugar
½ tsp cinnamon
4 bananas
1 cup eggnog
½ cup applesauce (unsweetened)
1 egg
¼ cup agave syrup

1. Mix together flour, baking soda, salt, sugar and cinnamon in a bowl
2. Blend bananas and eggnog in a blender until smooth.
3. Whisk the egg, add to the banana mixture, applesauce and agave syrup until well blended.
4. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well.
Bake 350 degrees for 25 min.

I absolutely LOVE to make my muffins in my Pampered Chef stoneware Muffin Pan. I don't need to use paper liners, nor do I need to grease the stoneware as it is well seasoned. After cooling, the muffins pop right out of the pan with ease!

Pampered Chef products make an excellent gift any time of year, but if you are considering a purchase in time for Christmas, please note...
