Confessions of a Lazy Cook

I’m not much of a cook. I take that back… I’m a lazy cook. When I set my mind to creating a great meal, it usually turns out great. Even fancy things like chicken Kiev or beef rouladin. I love to cook; I’m just not real creative. It’s so much easier to be in a rut than to scour the cookbooks to find a new recipe. I admit it – I cook the same things over and over despite the fact that my shelves and drawers are overflowing with cookbooks and cooking magazines.

When I was informed by The Mommy Reviewers (a group at the Mom Bloggers Club) that Country Bob’s was looking for bloggers to test and review their All Purpose Sauce, I figured it would be a great opportunity to get out of my rut. Hmmm…One bottle that can be used in so many recipes – as a sauce, a marinade, a dip or simply a flavorful ingredient in a dish. On poultry, steak, pork, seafood or in a side dish like baked beans. Yeah, that has lazy cook written all over it. I had to try it out. Thank you to Country Bob’s for generously shipping off a few bottles for me to test.

As I said before, I’m not too adventurous in the kitchen so my maiden voyage with Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce was to use it on chicken. I was really in the mood for something on the grill, so I opted to use the sauce as a marinade. We grilled it the same way we would any other chicken so it wasn’t anything fancy.

Well, I’m pleased to say that it turned out great! The All Purpose sauce has a nice flavor. Not like a BBQ sauce or even a steak sauce. It wasn’t a dull flavor but it wasn’t so pungent that it would only have a few uses. Not only did I like it, but so did DH. Bonus – The kids did, too! Yup. All of us loved the All Purpose Sauce on chicken.

This really doesn’t help me become less of a lazy cook, but it does give me another option when I’m in a pinch. I am already planning on using it on salmon next – probably as a glaze.

Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce can even be used in snack mixes or appetizers, in addition to its many uses in main dishes. The possibilities are endless for someone who is imaginative with their recipe box. For any of you that have already tried their products, please post your original recipes in the comment section. I would love to try out some of my reader-tested recipes!

If you’re wondering whether Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce (or any of their other products) is available in your area, just check their locator. If all else fails, you can buy it online!

Thanks again to Country Bob’s for sending me their All-Purpose Sauce to test out. It makes a great addition to my pantry.
