Go ahead, take a shot of salad dressing.
I got my first taste of this salad dressing when a dear friend brought it over with a meal she had made for my crew right after Nola was born. From the moment the heavenly concoction hit my lips, I wanted to drink it right out of it’s re-purposed glass bottle. Since asking begging her for the recipe, I’ve probably made it weekly. And I make it for everyone I know. If I love you, I will bring you this dressing. It’s been proven. So it’s time. What you will need: 2-3 garlic cloves, grated. 1/2 tsp. dry mustard 1/2 tsp. ground pepper 1 tsp. sea salt 1/2 lemon, squeezed (I use this squeezer 2 tablespoons tarragon wine vinegar 1/2 cup olive oil Freshly grated Parmesan cheese Mash the salt n’ peppa! Then, whisk in the tarragon white wine vinegar, lemon and oil: Take a good ole’ shot of the heavenly mixture (go state!) And store it in a salad dressing shaker , in your refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. You guys, I’ve just given you a gift. Comments comments

Flour Tortillas When I was growing up in South Texas we had this neighbor who would, on Saturday afternoons, make her tortillas for the week. Believe me, I made friends with her children so I could make myself available for tortilla day. I think she enjoyed my enthusiasm and always had a few extra tortillas for me to take home. Green Bean Fries A couple of weeks ago I was emailed by a reader to try Green Bean Fries, like the ones at T.G.I. Friday’s. So I went to the source and tried them. They were good, but mine might have been sitting around for a while as they were a little mushy.

Cake Batter Pancakes I’m fairly convinced that the world would be a better place if more sprinkles were involved. I know. I just made pancakes. It seems I have an unnatural obsession with cake batter. Well I do. But hear me out.

apple crumble bars recipe do you love apple pie? why am i even asking? of course you love apple pie. what if you could take an apple to eat on the go? well, i present to you these apple crumble bars: “they’re like mini apple pies!” Avocado Fries Oh dear. I never should have done this. This may be one of my biggest mistakes all year. freezing broccoli. an often overlooked way to preserve. In the mid-Atlantic, it’s been an amazing year for broccoli and cauliflower and brussels sprouts – all the members of the cruciferous vegetable family. I was at a farmers market last weekend and I saw beautiful golden, purple, green and white cauliflower. I wish the photo I took had turned out.

Rose Cake Tutorial SO excited to share with you how easy it is to make the rose cake. Seriously, once you see you are going to run right out, buy a 1M tip, and make one. That or go back to work. Baked Parmesan Zucchini Sticks I got kinda hooked on these this summer. I’ve always loved the zucchini sticks my parents served at their pizzeria and used to eat them often when I worked there. But let’s be real, though they are a “vegetable”… the deep fried part kinda trumps the veggie part don’t ya think?

Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars There is a deli near my house that makes the most amazing chocolate peanut butter bars. I have been trying to come up with a copycat version of them for some time & this recipe is pretty much it. I thought they would be a great dessert to make for the bake sale, as chocolate/peanut butter desserts are very popular & these are super simple & don't require any baking! I cut them into 2" bars for the sale, but 1" bite-sized bars would be ideal, as they are very rich.They sold out faster then anything else at the sale...I wish I had made more.
