Re: Ranch Dressing DYI in no time

Gents, understand that I didn't try it and it isn't my recipe but something I got from the 'net. I posted it only for the spice/herb mix. Good or bad, please let me know how it works for you. Ranch isn't my normal dressing of choice, but every time I've ever had it I liked it. I just don't have it o...

Re: Ranch Dressing DYI in no time

Gary, I post this not to steal your thunder but for those folks who don't like spice/herb packets. Personally I don't trust them. Here the herbs are listed for those cooks who DIY. I go so far as to make my own mayo with oils that aren't highly refined. This is not my recipe but taken from Barefeeti...

It's the 4th of July!

Happy Independence Day America!

Have your cookouts, but also let's not forget the price that was paid for our freedom, and let's not give it up freely to those who would give us a few dollars so that they can control us.

Re: How much silver in a Reed & Barton sterling silver Atra?

I doubt that it would be anything more than silver plated. Typically silver plate isn't very thick and not worth much due to the content. It would bother me to trash it, but sending it to a smelter wouldn't be cost effective. Maybe give it to a recycling center when you happen to be driving by?

Re: Air Purifiers or Humidifiers?

Generally, An air purifier does just that, it removes particulates from the air, and sometimes odors as well. HEPA versions remove exceedingly fine particulates. A dehumidifier is basically an A/C unit that removes humidity. If it cleans the air it's as a by-product of passing the air over the cold ...

Re: Tornado Season

I'm certainly glad that I live in a state w/o those. I had a devil wind come through years ago and that was enough*. What storms we do get leave everything standing, we just need to shovel out.

Re: What's for supper?

The recipe I use fills a wide mouth pint canning jar to the very top. Mayo made with vinegar doesn't spoil (despite what the "lawyers" write along with their recipes), so I don't mind making a pint. When I bought it I'd buy a qt. at a time with no problems. FWIW, mayo will attract and capture bacter...

Never even considered that, but it's in the memory banks now. Thanks! But I'm trying to do it w/o adding more yolks since that would cut down on my consumption (not that it's high).

Re: frozen dessert

Gary, like it or hate it, either one, let me know how you like it.

Made blueberry sorbet yesterday with our home picked berries from off of our bushes. Same recipe. Delicious. It's amazing how much a pound of berries shrinks down when turned into sorbet.

Re: What's for supper?

Chris I had a problem with my homemade mayo having the right consistency, not thick enough, and not tasting eggy enough. Then I discovered dehydrated egg powder. Now I need to find some egg white powder to goose the eggy taste a bit more.
