Chicken and beef stocks are easy to find on store shelves, and many of them taste almost as good as homemade. It's a bit trickier to find seafood stock, and I've never found one that I really like. Thankfully, making your own is fairly easy.

I love Cane's dipping sauce even better than their chicken, however I don't think it fits into my lighter lifestyle. Instead of giving it up altogther I found a copycat recipe and updated it with light mayo. It's a basically a fry sauce, or mayo and ketchup, with a kick from Tony Chachere's seasoning. Although not a perfect recreation it is a pretty tasty substitute.Submitted by ALERYAN

No-fuss caramelized onions. Serving size 2Tblsp.
Vidalia onions are especially nice, but any type will work. 2 lbs of onions will cook down to about 2 cups of caramelized onions, or 32 2-Tbls sized servings.
Keeps well in the refrigerator, can also be frozen. If you freeze in ice cube trays, you can store the serving-size cubes in a ziplock almost indefinitely.Submitted by CRYSMYS
