  • Tonight we were craving homemade BBQ chicken pizzas (recipe coming tomorrow) and I ran out of BBQ sauce. What’s a DIY girl to do? Make it herself!

    Who knew homemade BBQ sauce was so easy to make? Plus it tastes AMAZING!! This recipe has lots of flavor! I kept adding more spices to get the right flavor and I think it turned out perfect. Not too spicy and a little sweet… just the way I like it.
