What's The Difference Between Picante And Salsa?

Sometimes, the best part of a particular dish is the sauce. But why are sauces even used in cooking? According to Britannica, sauces are used to "provide flavor, moisture, and a contrast in texture and color." Just imagine a burger without the sauce – it probably wouldn't be nearly as popular as it is. And in the world of food, there are many types of different sauces. The most famous ones are the five French mother sauces that were created by chef Auguste Escoffier. Those include béchamel, velouté, Espagnole, hollandaise, and tomato sauce, and you've probably tasted or made at least a few of them (via Healthline).

SWLA’s Love Of Litigation

One of the contributing factors to Louisiana’s high auto insurance rates is litigation. You can’t turn on the TV without seeing an ad from a lawyer claiming to “get you what you deserve.” Some people throw around the phrase “I will sue you” just to leverage power over someone.
