1st post for my new cooking and eating website!

In celebration of my new blog I decided to post my two favorite salad dressing recipes!

~ Ranch
I got this from allrecipes and have worked it to get this concoction

1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup mayo
1 T. dried chives
1 T. dried parlsey
1/2 T. dried dill
1 t. garlic powder (sometimes I will crush fresh garlic to give it a bite ;-)
1 t. onion powder
1/4 t. sea salt
1/4 t. pepper

Mix together for veggie dip, for salad dressing add some milk. I don't measure I just pour in until it looks good. Switch it up any way you would like, this is just how we like it!

~ Italian (Brown Dressing)

- I started making this because I got sick of running out of the Good Season packets.

* Start with the carafe that you can buy with the packets, I bet you already have one.

* Fill to the V line with balsamic vinegar. I prefer the Kirkland brand in the big bottle. It is dark and tangy!

* Fill with water to the W line

* Add a Tablespoon or two of 21 seasoning salute (Trader Joe's)

*Add a Tablespoon or two of agave syrup or honey, put the lid on and shake

*Add Olive oil to the O line, then add more vinegar almost to fill the bottle.

* Shake and enjoy!

- Like the first recipe I eye this everytime. If I have a shaker clean it might be a little more exact.

Guten Appetit! - Jenna
