Sweet Basil Tomato Sauce
I know I'm cheating by rating my own recipe but it is the only way I can add some comments about how I have changed this up since I originally posted it. Like many of the reviewers, I always add some sugar to this. I also add a splash of balsamic vinegar or red wine (or both!). I usually omit the onions unless I adding meat to it, but that is because my daughter is a purist and can find a microscopic piece of onion in her food. :) If you have fresh basil available, I absolutely recommend using that instead of dried. I take advantage of the summer basil and fresh tomatoes by making huge batches of this sauce each year and canning it for use throughout the year. The variations I just described are what go into the jar. I then add whatever we are in the mood for when I heat it up (roasted red peppers, meat, onion, etc). As a starter, I still think the recipe as posted is a great starter recipe. The great thing with this kind of sauce is that you can get creative and find new ways to dress it up. Enjoy!

Ten Minute Enchilada Sauce
This sauce is great. It is made with ingredients I always have on hand. It is way better than pre-made stuff at the store. I will never go back!

I have to admit that I didn't follow the recipe exactly (didn't bother much with the right quantities as usual). I wanted something more Irish than regular mashed potatoes to go with the Irish Stout Stew that I made for St. Patty's Day. This is quite possibly the most delicious version of mashed potatoes that I have ever had. YUM!!
