Guest Post {Raising 4 Princesses}

Hello, everyone!
I'm Maria and I blog over at raising4princesses blog.
I'm an American wife and mom living {and loving} on the Island of Jamaica.
After getting my college degree, I now spend my days typing on tutus,
building castles out of chairs, and dressing baby dolls
...all while remembering the phonics rules, forgetting the laundry on the line and burning dinner.
I love being raised by my 4 little princesses.
I'm a country girl from Northeast Missouri that God placed on a tropical island.

My Prince Charming is from Baton Rouge, Louisiana. That's south, y'all!
Down there they have a {wildly} popular fast-food chain of just chicken strips, fries and
Texas toast.
It's called Raisin' Cane's Chicken Fingers. If you're in the area, you've got to try it!
We think that the secret to his success is "the sauce".
It is this yummy spicy sauce that comes with your meal.
You'll find your self use your chicken, fries, and toast to whip every last drop out of the little container. We always order extra!
Honestly. We miss the sauce. Literally. Crave the sauce.
So, for a few months I played around with some ingredients and we think this is REALLY close!

We just simply call it "the Sauce", 'cause now we eat it on most everything!

Here's what you gotta do!

1 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup ketchup
a shy 1/8 cup chili sauce (I use our local Jamaican Hot Pepper Sauce)
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup light olive oil
1 tablespoon of lemon (or lime) juice

Mix all ingredients together well. Store in an air-tight container OVERNIGHT..don't rush it.

We've found this gets better the older it gets. Honestly though, it never lasts too long!

Notes: My husband likes it spicy, so sometimes I double the chili sauce. Also, I've tried fresh garlic but the powdered garlic has a more subtle blended taste. For this recipe the powdered is best. For the oil, I use coconut oil...since I live where there is coconuts. {smile} But I'm sure olive oil would be just as good.

Hope you enjoy!

Thanks so much, Audra for allowing me this opportunity to guest post here! Even though I've not meet you in person I want to say I'm so proud and thankful to you and your husband for the sacrifices you make!
