Powder boxxxx

My mother and I have been having so much fun making different mayos and dressings with our blender stick. It is sooo dang easy. She told me about a roasted garlic and blue cheese dressing she made, I was drooling. Being salad season right now, I wanted to make an entree salad highlighting this dressing. I have to say this salad and a bowl of Chloe's ice cream (which we are living on) was delish and a perfect summer dinner.

Do you like my latest find, it is a powder box? It is quite big, I love the bright colors. We are having our father's day today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. I will up-date you on baby Logan next post xoxo


Blue Cheese Salad


tomatoes, cubed

bell pepper, I like orange, sliced into thin slices

roasted chicken, shredded into pieces

roasted garlic

Red onion, thinly sliced

my mothers roasted garlic blue cheese salad dressing

extra blue cheese

You could mix this all onto one big bowl or make composition salad, where you put the spinach on a plate and arrange the veggies and chicken over then top. Then drizzle with dressing and top with extra blue cheese and roasted garlic.


Fresh Herb Muffins

Chloe's Espresso Ice Cream

1 cup cold half/half or  whole milk

1 cup cold heavy cream

1/2 cup coco powder

1/2 cup evaporated cain or sugar

1 TBL. instant espresso powered

Whisk all together. Do not worry if all the coco powder does not whisk in, it will mix in while it is in the ice cream machine. If using electric machine pour into machine and run 1/2 hour. Should be fairly firm, transfer to container and set in fridge.

Yum, yum!
My Aunt just sent me a very old dressing recipe.
My Great Grandmother used to make this.
I poured it over sliced cucumbers and onion.
The receipe that I remember did not have flour. I found it. Two eggs yolks, 1 T. sugar, 2 T vinegar...stir until mixed on a low temp. in a small skillet and add 1 T butter. Stir until yolks have thickened and the dressing turns to a pale, glossy consistency. This is basically the one that Alice made for her delicious 24 hr. fruit salad, but on sliced cucumbers and thinly sliced onions, it is a more flavorful dressing than mayo...needs salt and pepper too. My cousin used this on her slaw and added some prepared brown mustard. Enjoy.


Isn't it fun when you discover some new something to do in the kitchen? I made cherry ice cream the other night, and it was so much quicker and easier than I thought it would be with the ice cream maker that my parents gave me. Next, I want to make sorbet.

Your powder box would look wonderful in your library, I think.

Thank you for sharing your recipe.

You're making me hungry Clarice!

I will have to make your mother's dressing for my honey, he loves Bleu Cheese. Me, I just started weight watchers so it's not happening :)

Thanks for always sharing wonderful ideas and recipes!

Have a blessed weekend!



Great find Clarice! The powder box is lovely and so british!
Thank you for the recipes. I am trying to use spinach more in my diet to increase my iron level...the salad recipe sounds great!
