Facebook Ranch Salad Dressing

If you are on Facebook, I’m sure you have noticed the pictures of food that come complete with recipes.  They say things like, “2 Ingredient Frosting”, or “My mom could not believe how easy this Cordon Blue Recipe is”, or “Tastes just like the original Taco Bell Refried Beans.”  This Ranch Salad Dressing recipe says, “Best ranch you’ll ever taste and its homemade. Recipe lasts for ever too.” and it is provided by Carla Reid Chatterton.

Grilled Ribeye and Grilled Peaches with arugula, blue cheese, thyme, pecans and honey balsamic dressing

With Much Love and Strawberries

Marinated Strawberry Salad with arugula, Fennel and Pepitas

I think love and strawberries go together.  After all, you can dip strawberries in chocolate, or drop them into champagne, or slice them up and serve with ice cream drizzled with chocolate.  All of these are romantic and put you in the mind for love.  And between Yes!Chef! and myself, we have been making quite a few strawberry recipes lately.

Chiles and Limes go together like Love and Marriage

Chile Lime Infused Dinner for Two

Chile Lime Infused Dinner for Two

It’s been two weeks now since my daughter’s wedding to a wonderful young man.  The wedding was lovely and we were lucky the weather was not hot, nor cold.  The weekend before the wedding the temperature was 106 degrees.  Two days after the wedding the weather turned quite cold-around 65 degrees- and rainy.  This past weekend, the weather was 109 degrees.  The temperature on my daughter’s wedding day was 89 degrees.  God was definitely smiling on this wedding.
