Recently, I made a Indo-Chinese dish which required chili sauce. I din't have the sriracha sauce at home. So, decided to make it and use right away. I tried this recipe and it came out good. I would use it in Indo-Chinese recipes in place of chili sauce. The measurements are approximate and earned a couple of tablespoons, I suggest to try and adjust the levels to your taste.

I'm an absolute beginner to knitting and crochet. It all started few months back, when I wanted to knit a baby blanket. I started to browse for basic information on knitting, searched for videos in youtube. Believe me! there are tons of information online. While nothing will compare to a well organized class... this is just a starting point to know about the craft. I bought the knitting needles from Joann and started searching "What is knitting" ... :) ...
Then comes crochet, which sailed the same boat as knitting. I got the crochet hooks and looked for information on crochet online.
I'm hoping that this post will encourage any one who wants to learn a craft - like an absolute beginner like myself - is very much possible. The joy to creating things(even if it is a small piece) by our hands is immense!! :)
Although I feel to master the craft, it is possible only through proper guidance. I'll put up my knitting and crochet works - I'm very much new to this, so I've tried only very basic items. Hoping to do more :) Would like to get all your valuable comments :)
Here is the first baby blanket (small) that I knit - It is a simple garter stitch baby blanket.
