    This Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce is rich, thick, sticky and sweet. Perfect for all your grilling needs this summer!

    Well, summer is in full force here now.  The kids are out of school and I am grilling everything as the weather is getting warmer and warmer.  This Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce has become a new staple around my house.  It’s one of my husbands favorite along with this Texas Style BBQ Sauce.  As you can see in these pictures I used this BBQ sauce on some grilled chicken.  I first rubbed the chicken with a homemade chicken rub (recipe coming soon).  Then after I removed the chicken from the grill I slathered it with some of this yummy sauce.

    This Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce is thick, sweet and sticky. It pairs well with all types of grilled meats.

    I am calling this a Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce because it is that sweet and sticky style of sauce.  It has a decent amount of molasses in it which gives it that deep beautiful color.  It also helps make it really thick which makes it perfect as a finishing sauce or dipping sauce.  OOOH, this BBQ sauce would be perfect with some chicken strips!!

    It’s a super simple recipe to make.  Just combine all of the ingredients in a medium sized saucepan and simmer for about 10 minutes.  Pour into a heat-safe container (I like mason jars) and that’s it!!  Super simple!!  You could also let it cool in the pan and store it in empty ketchup or bbq sauce bottles.

    So, in other news…..you guys may have noticed I didn’t post anything on the blog last week.  I decided I needed to take a little time off to get ready for the baby to come.   Yes, that’s right I am still pregnant!!  This is a new one for me because all of my other girls were born in my 36/37th week of pregnancy.  I am going to be 39 weeks this Wednesday!!  I feel like I am terribly overdue but I keep reminding myself that I just need to be patient and she will come when she is ready.  My husband tells me I am going a week past my due date and all I could tell him was UGH!!!!  WHAAA I don’t want to go a week overdue!!!

    But anyway I stepped away from the blog and social media for the week and got some chores done around the house.  I am all caught up on laundry (this has never happened in like the last 10 years, lol), switched out everyone’s winter clothes for summer ones (that is a huge task that I dread every summer and winter!), and some much needed cleaning was finally accomplished.  You guys my floor is actually mopped!!  WOOT WOOT!!  I have several blog posts cooked and photographed so I am ready to go, now come on little girl it’s your turn!!
