Reviewed Homemade Ranch Dressing

Nov 14, 2013 on FoodNetwork.com

Agree with other reviews- so yummy! I usually make from the packet BUT this is in another league. Plus, I feel so much better knowing WHAT is in my dressing. I used lite sour cream but went all out on mayo (Best Foods). Next time I may try Veganaise in place of the mayo. I used my Cuisinart--a breeze to make--took me less than 10 minutes! Thanks Ree!...

These gingerbread cookies are tasty! They remind me of the Lebkuchen we used to eat in Berlin. I think the flavors will blend more with time-as is the case with these types of cookies. I thought the dough was a little lemony--but they baked up nicely.

Reviewed Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Love this recipe! So easy and tasty! Everyone that tries them, loves them--such a welcome change from our childhood memories (nightmares) of bitter, soggy brussels sprouts. I add fresh chopped garlic and cut the sprouts in half, because the ones I have been buying recently are too big and don't roast up as nicely as the smaller pieces. Thanks Ina!"
