Homemade Tartar Sauce

Threw together some tartar sauce tonight because i hate the sweet store bought stuff.  If you like your tartar sweet get a bottle at the store.  If you like it tasting like Captain D's (or another non-sweet kind)... here you go.  Sorry, in advance but i didn't measure this recipe either... did all "to taste"  - I'm old school like that.  I'll measure next time..

Real Mayonnaise   (a few table spoons - it was just me and my husband)
Dill Relish - NOT sweet relish (you can use sweet if you like that sort of thing)
Garlic Powder (a generous shake)
Old Bay Crab Boil Seasoning (optional)
Onion, chopped
Salt/Pepper, to taste.


Directions:  Mix all.  :)

Homemade Guacamole

Made some delicious guacamole tonight so I have to jot it down so I don't forget what I put into it.  I didn't measure anything and only used one avocado because its just me and my husband, so I am sorry in advance for no exact measurements... everything is pretty much "to taste".





  • 1 perfectly ripe avocado (not too green, brown and very slightly squishy- best i can describe, lol)
  • Salt, to taste
  • Rotel (since i was using only 1 avocado i only used a couple spoonfuls of rotel) You can replace Rotel with salsa.
  • Garlic and/or garlic powder, to taste
  • Cayenne pepper, to taste, omit if you dont want a little spice
  • Onion, chopped  (again, since i only used 1 avocado i did not use a whole onion..like a quarter of a regular sized onion)
  • Onion powder, to taste

Slice around the avocado - keep the seed - helpful tip to keep guacamole from going brown is to put the seed in the bowl with the fresh made guac.  :)

Spoon the avocado into a bowl.  Add the rest of the ingredients :)  Stir/mush with fork.  Put the seed back in.  Voila!!!!  You've got guacamole!!   Adjust seasonings to taste.  Serve with chips.  MMM..

We ate ours faster than I could take pictures...soooo, Ill get pictures next time :) :)


Way too many smiley faces in this post.  :)
