More recipes

I'm running behind today so this post is going to be a simple one.  Thought I'd share a couple more recipes we find quite tasty...


1 small onion
2/3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/2 tsp. salt
1/3 c. white vinegar
1 c. salad oil
1 tsp. poppy seeds
Place onion in blender and chop.  Add sugar, mustard, salt and vinegar & blend.  Add oil a small amount at a time.  Add poppy seeds and refrigerate.  Use on salads, as a sandwich spread, or as a 'dip' for raw veggies.


2/3 c. raspberry vinegar
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. sugar
2 T. lemon juice
2 tsp. poppy seeds
1/4 tsp. Worcestershire
1 T. minced onion
1/4 tsp. paprika
Combine vinegar, sugar, lemon juice, Worcestershire, onion & paprika in blender.  Slowly add veg oil.  Add poppy seeds & refrigerate.  Serve over romaine lettuce with sliced strawberries and pecans.


1 c. mayo (we use Miracle Whip)
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. EACH dried chives, parsley & dill
1/4 tsp. EACH garlic power & onion powder
1/8 tsp. EACH salt & pepper
Combine in blender and refrigerate.  Use on salads, as a sandwich spread, or as a 'dip' for veggies.  

I don't have time today to search out any fun links for you (sorry), so I will leave you with today's anonymous quote...."When nothing goes right, go left"


  1. Your recipes sound delicious. I'll have to stay away from the onions however!
    Yes, to the quote, so obvious but often we get so distracted with fretting.

    1. So sorry you can't have onions Janie - I know a lot of people are allergic to them, or just plain don't like them.

  2. Hi Maryanne thankyou for sharing these recipes,they will come in handy xx

    1. Hope you try them Sheryl - we think they're good anyway!


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.
