Honey should be every cook's best friend! - A touch of golden, sticky liquid adds a unique flavor buzz and delicate floral sweetness to everything from appetizers to baked goods to sauces and salad dressings. Take a look at the many delicious things that you can make with honey.

1. Create a honey-based dressing.

Honey (along with a bit of mustard and lemon) make the perfect sweet-yet-tangy salad dressing.

The recipe: Whisk 2 teaspoons each honey and dijon mustard, 2 tablespoons lime juice, and 1/2 teaspoon each lime zest and kosher salt. Gradually whisk in 1/4 cup each olive oil and vegetable oil, then add 2 teaspoons chopped thyme and 1/2 minced jalapeno.

Sweet and tangy, honey mustard is super versatile and works with a ton of different flavors - it goes equally well with green salads, steamed veggies, chicken, fish, and meats.

2. Use it to sweeten hot beverages.

Say no to sugar - Add honey to the drink and enjoy a sweet alternative with health benefits.

The recipe: It's just honey, lemon and hot water.

You can enjoy the soothing and rejuvenating effects of honey and lemon water at any time, no matter if it's morning or evening.

3. Make a glaze for your roast.

The whole chicken or beef are marinated with the sweet and savoury sauce, roasted and glazed with honey in the last few minutes in the oven.

The ingredient: Beef or chicken, honey, olive oil, soy sauce, garlic, ginger smoked paprika and some salt and pepper.

These crisp-tender, sticky glazed dishes are amazing served with steamy white rice and vegetables or mashed potato and gravy.

4. Pair it with your fresh and fluffy pancake and toast.

A light drizzle on toast or pancakes can turn into a spectacular breakfast! Top them off with butter and berries to make a perfect combination for your meal.

Enjoy your honey-based breakfast!

5. Baking with honey.

Put down your sugar bowl and switch to honey.

From a loaf of bread to muffins to cookies - Honey is a fantastic natural sweetener for baked goods.

Honey adds addtional moisture to the baked goods. Thus, cookies baked with honey are more chewy than crisp and muffins have a tighter crumb.

# 4 Great Tips to Bake Using Honey:

  1. One cup of sugar = One cup of honey.
  2. Different Types of Honey = Different Types of Flavor
  3. Reduce temperature by 25 degrees to prevent overbrowning.
  4. Add a little baking soda when baking with honey.
