Italian Dressing Mix

Do you ever wonder what are really in those handy mixes at the grocery store?  You would have to have a chemistry degree to know all the real ingredients!  Why not make your own mixes.  I make my own taco seasoning mix and this mix as well.  It tastes great and you know what is in there!!  Be sure to store in an air tight container.  I also cut out the recipe and tape to a ziplock bag and store the jar inside so I don't have to look up the directions to mix the dressing!

Zucchini Fritters

Zucchini fritters are a great side dish for any spicy meat main course you might be preparing for dinner.  It's a good way to get your veggies and they taste delicious!

Easy Chicken, Green Beans and Potato Bake

I found this recipe on my pinterest page the other day and I thought it looked simple.  I changed it up a bit to suit my taste by adding peppers and carrots to the mix and lowering the amount of butter and adding olive oil instead. The original recipe used 1/2 cup of butter and a package of Italian dressing mix.  I do not like to use package mixes as we don't really know what they are putting in those things so I made my own mix.  It turned out great and we were so hungry that I forgot to take a photo of the final product.  I promise when I make this next time I will take that photo and put it on this post!  Easy for you soccer moms, it can even be made in the crockpot.  Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6 hours.  It might not have the cool presentation but will taste the same. Go for it, make it soon, sure is a time saver!

Dijon Mustard Marinated Flank Steak with Bearnaise Sauce

I am really enjoying Ina Garten's newest cookbook, "Foolproof" .  She is an awesome cook and this so delicious.  It is a real winner and will be in my favorite recipes from now on!  I did not type her recipe verbatim as I like to describe things in my own way!  So hear it goes...
