fermented fish sauce most commonly associated with the ancient Mediterranean. It was used in the same way that people living in America today use ketchup, which is to say, they put it on all types of foods and meals. Like ketchup, Garum was not reserved for special meals or a luxury good, but consumed by all social classes. It is most notably associated with ancient Rome but the sauce played a huge role in the economics of the Mediterranean and was a big business for many classes of people during that time. The records of garum include writings as well as material remains such as factories, most famously one preserved in Pompeii, as well as amphoras that have been found to contain traces of garum.
The name garum is believed to have stemmed from a fish the Greeks called garos, though no such fish name occurs in classical Greek [citation]. Garum was not the only fish sauce popular in the Mediterranean. Different recipes were made using different types of fish and had…

Growing up, one learns from experience, and boy, did I! From under-cooked chicken to overcooked cakes and cookies, I learned from my experiences. One memorable experience was the day I tried to make chicken. I was 10 years old and I had bought some chicken wings and BBQ sauce from the grocery store. I seasoned the chicken well with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, curry powder, and sage. I tossed the pieces around in the BBQ sauce mix and put them in the oven. On the internet, it said to…
The sweet pumpkin pie, the tart apple pie, and of course, the rich, chocolate ice-cream topped off the amazing meal. I glanced from face to face, privately thanking God for each family member.

The meat sauce was a little more difficult to make since I had to make it from scratch. Typically, when I make spaghetti and meat sauce, I purchase…
