  1. This is a very good basic sauce and calls for ingredients most of have at hand all the time. I did find that the amount of cornstarch is just too much - half is ample for us but we do not like a very thick sauce. Also sugar can b e reduced somewhat to taste. Anyway, excellent basic recipe which will be used often. Thanks - just what I wanted.
  2. A great, and as it is advertised, simple sauce. Husband and I gobbled it up, kids weren't quite as enthusiastic. I did not have wine, so I used water as directed, and chicken stock.


I'm a mom and I love to cook. Started cooking when I was 20, and found I love to do it! I love to experiment with new stuff all the time, and I hate prepackaged foods and recipes that use them, so I always try to figure out the ingredients on my own to copy a recipe. I just don't think that opening a can of baked beans and adding something to it makes for homemade beans!!) My husband had a heart attack last year at the age of 39! So now, we try to eat a lot healthier. I am always looking for ways to get more veggies into him. In my recipes, I never add salt, but I post it here cuz I know most people still like the taste. It takes a while, but you get over it when you cut it out of your cooking. We don't even have a salt shaker anymore. Poor guests! I love that when I post something here, I can see the nutritional breakdown so I know what he can and can't have. I've printed all kinds of recipes that I've found here and made up a heart friendly cookbook for us.
