The right combination of seasonings and sauces can make or break a meal. So, I just knew I needed to share these 7 homemade sauces and spice blends to help you get dinner on the table faster. If you have them already made, you can easily get a meal on the table in no time with the right sauce or spice blends. I also love how once you have them made, there's not really a need to use an offical recipe... just toss them with whatever veggies or meat you're eating and you're good to go!
Any of these can take a dinner (or lunch) from boring and bland to unbelievably amazing with just a few minutes of your time. All of these sauces and spice blends can be made in big batches ahead of time, and stored for later use. So, whenever you need them, just grab a few Tbsp and get to cooking.
