Recipes & Carla's True South Sauces

Ours & Yours

1st of all - you don't have to cook - just dip anything in it & enjoy!

But, if you do - my recipes are pretty darn easy & you’ll love how your food turns out. Most of my recipes don’t come with exact proportions since I’m a southern girl who “cooks to taste”. 


Feel free to send recipes or suggestions & permission to share them. I love that!

My recipes help you enjoy the full experience of food (taste, texture, smell & visual).

So, as much as I want to sell you a lot of sauce…..Sometimes – LESS IS MORE! 

Momma always said, “you can always add more -but you can’t always take it out”. Ain’t that just the truth!

Keep in mind, our sauces aren't quite as thick as some others, on purpose. We feel sauce shouldn’t get too "GOOPY" or burn badly when cooked. But, it should glaze pretty and get a little crispy on the tail end.

Below are recipes to bring a little southern goodness to your home, family and friends. 



Pork, Chicken, Steak, Wings, Burgers (on top or add into meat before cooking), Meatballs, Baked Beans

Or for a great change, try……. Meatballs, Black Beans, glazing salmon or any fish, drizzle on baked potatoes (or even mashed), Eggs, Bacon wrapped Shrimp, Bacon wrapped water chestnuts, (oh who am I kidding…."BACON WRAPPED ANYTHING")

Basically - just dip anything in it!


Burger, BLT, Turkey Club, Grilled Cheese, Shrimp, Crab Cakes, Deviled Eggs, Fries (especially SWEET POTATO FRIES), Chips, Sushi, Sliced Avocado & Tomatoes, as a Salad Dressing, Egg Sandwich, Baked Chicken or Fish
