I have a new obsession and its name is Orange is The New Black. I put up a picture of me watching it on Instagram and I got so much support and encouragement from many watchers including a few of my blogger friends (I’m looking at you Joanne and Kayle!) which when you’re 20 minutes in a show means you must identify what the hype is about.

It didn’t take very long into the first episode to love it, and I have been loving it ever since. This including watching it up until 5 minutes before Game of Thrones last night and sacrificing a good seat in our usual viewing party in the living room.

Real obsession.

The thing is, I can’t exactly binge watch it during the day because Mr Jessiker Bakes is at work and I made a pledge in blood made a promise to not watch ahead of him. This means I have to dedicate myself in the daytime to things I’m actually supposed to be doing.


Easy Strawberry BBQ Sauce Recipe

But enough about me, more about this Roasted Strawberry Barbecue Sauce. There’s a local hot wings restaurant that serves strawberry barbecue sauce and I have been really craving it; the sauce, not the wings. And so, roasted strawberry barbecue sauce was born.

I chose to roast the strawberries because it produces a much deeper flavour and immerses much easier into the sauce. When I say that this sauce is delicious I mean BBQ King Mr. Jessiker Bakes gave it a huge thumbs up. It has all the right hints of smokiness, flavour, and spice and the strawberry adds a delicious sweetness to it. It comes together so quickly that you’ll be wondering why you ever bought barbecue sauce from the store. This sauce is ready for use on pretty much anything – or you can do like me and just eat it with a spoon.
