#1 Way to Improve Breakfast
Waking up and wondering how to start your day? C'mon, we all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Why not do it right? My simple DIY syrup is the obvious companion to great breakfast dishes like this epic french toast dish or my favorite fluffy waffles. Not nutty enough for ya? Try the pecan maple syrup found with this fall waffle recipe.
Quick Tasty Lunch Options
"♫ I'm so sick of that same old sauce! ♪" I think Selena Gomez would agree, right? She and I probably have the same go-tos on our refrigerator shelves as you, and it can be so easy to fall into the slump of grabbing ranch or ketchup! However, your lunch will be the highlight of your day with fresh Lemon-Garlic Aioli lathered over Greek Style Turkey Burgers or drizzled over Baked Greek Turkey Meatballs.
Pickled Cucumbers, Carrots, Asparagus, Radishes, etc...
It can be a cinch to enjoy pickled vegetables on your sandwich or salad; for instance, my husband loves pickled carrots handy for franks and sausages.
Sandwich Dressing & Salad Salsa and Sauces
These reminders are often needed: Dressings are not just for salads and it doesn't have to appear with the grocery store dressings to be great on a salad! Dressing goes great on a sandwich and the right salsa or bbq sauce can make all the difference on a salad.

I've got the dinner-time condiments as well. Because when you have put the effort into making your final meal of the day, it is really nice to pair it with a savory condiment. I recommend making the perfect steak more perfect with an Argentinian condiment, Fresh Chimmichurri Sauce. Leftover steak? Substitute it into this versatile easy enchiladas recipe and smother it in classic red enchiladas sauce. Yum!
