I despise store bought salad dressings. I buy them because I can’t always have homemade on hand, but every time I use them, I don’t finish my salad…it’s the truth. Homemade salad dressings have so much more flavor and freshness to them. So much so that once you try them, you won’t want to go back. You’ll have to sometimes, because life happens, but you’ll be sad about it. Boo hoo.
Zoe turned two last week, and the party decorations are still up. Perhaps, I’m hoping that if I leave them up she’ll stay just as she is, and I can enjoy her sweet two year old self just a bit longer. Just a wish…after all, I did help her blow out the candle.
In the last few months, I have slowly been going through my Grandmother’s recipes. She passed away just last fall, and I was lucky enough to go to the funeral and celebrate her life with many loved ones. I was also lucky to bring home a few bags of her saved recipes and cookbooks.
