I love ranch dressing, but it's not available in Israel. They've never even heard about it! I found this somewhere on the Internet about 10 years ago. My veggie daughter loves this on tomatoes. I like it on potato latkes, of all things.
A wonderful marinade for chicken. If you don't have Miracle Whip, mayonnaise may be substituted. I usually marinate chicken in the marinade at least 30 minutes before cooking. However, I once took chicken sitting in the marinade to a cook-out, and other people there who had brought their own chicken started dipping their chicken in my left-over marinade to coat, then barbecuing right away without waiting for it to marinate. It was still delicious! I've found I can coat over a dozen chicken pieces with a single recipe of the marinade. These days I make this without the Tbs of salt when making it just for myself, but people's tolerance for low salt varies widely and so I've posted it the way I've found suits most people best. I'd say be guided by your own tastes when it comes to amount of salt used.
This easy recipe is from the Good housekeeping cookbook I lost in my housefire, I have made it so many times, I have it memorised. I like to maridnade beef cubes in it and have shish-ka-bob night and serve over rice. It also uses basic on hand ingredients.
I love this recipe because it's simple and easy and it costs only pennies to make compared to buying it in the store. I make all my Christmas candy with this that calls for sweetened condensed milk.
Makes 1 1/3 cups or 10 oz.
My SIL is a newlywed, and she's turning into quite a good cook -- we have even started sharing recipes. This is HER stir fry sauce, and I love its basic goodness. You can add ingredients (I'll add a few spoonfuls of black bean sauce sometimes, for example) or change them around (I often use brown sugar instead of white, and sometimes I use rice wine vinegar instead of the white). I keep losing the piece of paper I have this scribbled on, so it's time to bring it to Zaar!
We have been making our own syrup forever and it is soooo easy. We recently had guests for the weekend and had a pancake breakfast. They had never had homemade syrup before so I decided to post it. There are a couple other syrup recipes on here, but none with the same ingredients.
I like to make this dry mix to keep on hand in my pantry. It makes whipping up a fresh batch of ranch dressing quick and easy -- just add the mayo and buttermilk. This is an adaptation of recipe #47249
