THE “SAUCE GODDESS” MAKES GIFT GIVING AND ENTERTAINING
DELICIOUS, QUICK, AND EASY ALL YEAR LONG

San Diego, CA – San Diego local, Jennifer Reynolds better known at the “Sauce Goddess” is on a mission to make throwing a party as easy as one, two, three.  Reynolds’ passion is cooking and creating ways to make entertaining easy and enjoyable for all.  “There are many tips to create delicious dishes that it’s easy for everyone to enjoy their own party.” Jennifer Reynolds, President, Sauce Goddess, LLC. Visit www.saucegoddess.com for more information, gift ideas and recipes to make entertaining FUN!

Reynolds makes entertaining and gift giving “Stress Free” and enjoyable year round.  She loves to show people how to WOW their guests with delicious and easy recipes.  “My newest discovery is a creamy white sauce that is perfect for making favorites such as Scalloped Potatoes, Fettuccini Alfredo or Mac and Cheese.  This sauce is fabulous for the holidays, playoff games, tailgating, potluck dinners, and of course the “Granddaddy” party of them all the Super Bowl. It’s also gluten free, which is great because everyone can enjoy it.  The best thing about this recipe is it is so darn easy and you can create lots of delicious dishes in a snap,” explains Reynolds.

Reynolds became the “Sauce Goddess” when she took her father’s much loved recipe for a smoke free grilling sauce and started Sauce Goddess, LLC.  “Everyone came to my house growing up and they still do because we are always cooking and sampling new recipes. Bottom line is we love to eat and share with EVERYONE!” exclaims Reynolds.

“There are so many products and easy tricks that people can use to make entertaining not so overwhelming.” states Reynolds. “Dips and marinades just get better as they age so you can make these ahead of time and use as needed. My motto is 1,2,3, It’s Party Time! You can do amazing things with sausages on the grill or in the crock-pot that are so easy.  Here’s a great time saver and flavor increaser, use whipped cream cheese for recipes, sauces and dips.” says Reynolds.

Reynolds made a decision to make her products gluten-free after her sister was diagnosed as gluten intolerant. “It was after all our Dad’s recipe, so my sister had be able to use the sauce. It’s still the sticky sweet delicious flavor, and now, it happens to be gluten-free.”  The “Sauce Goddess” has expanded her offerings to include not only cooking and grilling sauces but spice rubs and salted caramel corn in a wide variety of unique flavors including: Latin Heat, Big and Tangy, Moroccan Twist, Sweet BBQ Heat, Devils Bite, Sweet Red Devil, Sticky Sweet and Sweet and Spicy.

According to Reynolds, “Our newest creation, the spiced caramel corn was inspired from my love of spicy salty sweet snacks. We created all sorts of combinations from exotic spices of cardamom all the way to spicy habanero. So we decided to combine savory and sweet flavors to create Sauce Goddess’ Salted Caramel Corn; it is not only gluten-free, but nut free too.

The Sauce Goddess loves to cook, barbeque and grill out. She is on a mission to help millions of people create easy to make, affordable gourmet dishes. “Many of our delicious recipes are naturally gluten-free.  Nobody ever asks where’s the gluten?
