“Creamy” Basil Dressing

I originally used about 2 cups of basil and the final product didn’t seem quite basil flavored enough for me and tossed another cup in at the end. Then it was perfect. (Makes about 1 1/2- 2 cups)

Cherrie’s Dijon Salad Dressing

there’s the basic recipe. but for those of you who know me, could this possibly have been good enough!? of course not! hehe. to this, i added a tablespoon or so of nutritional yeast, and two teaspoons or so of chicken flavored veggie broth powder. then a bunch of dried parsley and basil. (these additions made it creamy instead of watery). it tastes delicious! and trust me with the crushed garlic a little will go a long way.

Bryanna’s Low-Fat Creamy “Caesar” Dressing

Traditional Caesar dressings are primarily oil, but why drench a fat-free green salad in oil? This delicious dressing makes enough for two BIG salads, and also makes a good dip for raw veggies.

    • Fig and Twig Tea Oatmeal (and Seeing the Porcupine)
        Sometimes it’s hard to recognize that something simple, even humble, can be a marker of profound healing. Now that I live farther “out” from downtown, the walk in and back is probably almost two miles. In the winter weather, Romeo and I suit up, and I usually wear my backpack, especially if we’re going […]
