This has been on my mind a lot, and was prompted during dinner prep for a Monday Night Football party. My friend swears by this wing sauce, that he calls his own. He told me the recipe for it, and it's bleu cheese dressing, frank's red hot, barbecue sauce, butter, and a tiny bit of grape jelly. The sauce is delicious, I mean, it sounds gross, but it tastes great for the white trash bar food that it is. But it got me thinking, is this really "his" sauce if everything in it is premade? The GM of our country club swears by his "family recipe barbecue sauce." I watched him make it once, and basically he takes sweet baby ray's, adds brown sugar and white vinegar, and lets it simmer for 15 minutes. Neither of those, to me, constitute something someone can call their own. But where do we draw the line? Obviously I think some things you can't be counted upon to make from scratch. For example, if someone makes a sauce using greek yogurt or sour cream, I would consider that fair game. I could maybe even see some prepared products like ketchup and whathaveyou. But where is the line drawn? Anyway, don't take this too seriously. Just the buzzed stream of consciousness ramblings of a random dude. Although I would like to hear what you guys think.
