Final journal pages and more summer cooking

Here is another of our favourite recipes - this is excellent as a dressing over a green salad or as a cold pasta salad dressing.  It keeps quite awhile in the fridge too.  We usually make a full recipe which does make quite a bit, but we use it on everything so it doesn't last long!

1 small onion
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp. dry mustard
2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. white vinegar
2 cups olive oil
2 tsp. poppy seeds

Place onion in blender and chop.
Add sugar, mustard, salt, and vinegar and blend.
Add oil to blender (while running) a small amount at a time.
Add poppy seeds & refrigerate.
These are the final journal pages from my collaboration doll Shudayra.  Hope you've enjoyed seeing the details that were created for this doll and her journal.  The members of the collaboration did a superb job!!


  1. Thanks for the recipe. Sounds like a good one. I must try it.
    That journal is so nice to have. You can look back on it and enjoy it again and again.

  2. The journal is wonderful. Its a pity everyone can't see it in person. Hard to get the tactile feel of the pages in pics, but you did a good job with the pics I must say.
    I think I'll have a go at the recipe. I've been trying out various things on my lettuce sprouts. Just dumping filling on and rolling up..a lettuce sandwich sort of.

  3. That dressing sounds good MA! I'll be giving that a try! Love the journal!

  4. The onion dressing sounds great. I'll have to try it!

  5. I absolutely love your pages. I hope one day mine are at least as equally good. Have to work on it, but summer seems to be getting in the way. By the way, thanks for visiting my studio at Amanda's Baskets.

  6. Hello....your slow cook lasagna sounds great. I am going to try it soon. Thanks for visiting my blog. Get those buttins of your in jars...I love buttons!! Susan


Thank you so much for leaving comments! I appreciate you taking the time out of your busy life to talk to me. It's wonderful to know that someone is actually reading my mumblings and even more fun if I can connect with you and visit your blog.
