No matter how fancy a restaurant and the dishes could be, for me, the real comfort is always homemade food - simple, cost-effective, and delicious.

Pork fried with cucumber and basil, scrambled eggs with homemade spicy ketchep, and rice.

The temperature drops so fast, and it's again the season of soup! Sesame oil, ginger, sliced pork liver and pork heart, homegrown leafy green.

I too love homemade food the best! ♥️ Your dishes look wonderful! I have make homemade ketchup in the past, but I do get lazy with making that. We always make homemade mayo, salad dressings, sauces, tortillas, bread, and nearly every meal is completely homemade.

@Dahlia , have you ever made homemade barbecue sauce?

I've used a couple rhubarb (rhu-b-que) sauce recipes. However, we don't barbecue very often and don't use much sauce. A bottle lasts for months. A bother ...

Still, it was good.

Yes, I have made homemade BBQ sauce and so many other sauce recipes! Your rhubarb BBQ sauce sounds tasty!

Looking at an ingredient list, that Sazon sounds good. See, there are knowledgeable BBQ people and I'm not really one of them. There was a desire to do something with rhubarb and I had no real idea if it would taste good to me.

These are the ones I tried and, for me, they were all good ;).

I'm surprised that they are still out there. It is almost 10 years since I tried them :).

That kinda thing might be most fun with Bo Ssam. Here is the first one I tried, mainly because I like saying the name over and over at parties.

I bought cheap chicken thighs to dehydrate for the pets. I took all the scraps and bones and made some stock. I have to chill it yet to separate the fat. I like using the stock. It is harder to use the fat. I usually toss it. I wonder if the cats would like it? Probably not -they are so picky.

In Germany, some supermarkets will offer less popular varieties of meat and organs. I love them. The prices are always much lower than the lean meat prepared neatly - no skin, no bones, properly cut, and three times more expensive.

I also like chicken wings - there are many ways to make them delicious.
Japanese-style fried chicken wings - crunchy and juicy in one bite.
