Even the best cooks fall into a cooking rut from time to time. When you're tired or busy, you may find yourself gravitating towards the same couple of meals over and over again because they're simple and quick.

One of the easiest ways to change things up without a lot of extra work on your end is to add a new sauce to your favorite recipe! For example, if grilled chicken is a staple in your dinner rotation but you always find yourself topping it with barbeque sauce, it may get a little boring. But what if you topped it with some Green Sriracha Sauce and served it with rice, or served it with some stir-fried veggies and drizzle with a Simple Peanut Sauce? You'd have a totally new meal!

Here are 25 easy homemade sauces to help breathe some new life into your favorite staple recipes! And an added bonus? When you make the sauces at home, you get to control all the ingredients!
