Baking is science and I don't like formulas, but cooking is art and anything goes...and the simpler the better. It's all about less time at the stove and more time at the table. With a forty year passion for food I'm excited to share what I do in the kitchen nearly every day.

Cilantro Garlic Yogurt Sauce

Grilling season is in full swing and a yogurt sauce is an easy and refreshing compliment.  For this chicken dish I stirred into plain yogurt, the juice of one lime, two minced garlic cloves, chopped cilantro, and salt and white pepper to taste.  There are lots of options depending on what you’re making, try fresh orange juice with dill on your salmon, or mint, garlic, and lemon with your lamb, or how about some Indian spices, or something as easy as your favorite curry or hot sauce with your veggies.  For the best flavor I recommend preparing the sauce at least an hour ahead of time.  And it lasts for days in the fridge, so always make more than you think you’ll need.
