A wonderful dirt cheap alternative to buying a $5 bottle of Febreze. This version is about 5 cents to make and the scent is much nicer too. I use it all the time.

From Ladies Home Journal March 2009

When I was little, I always wanted some coffee because my parents were always drinking it... but it tasted gross (I like it now though, haha). I think this would be great to serve your kids with dessert while the grown-ups enjoy their coffee. This is a great and very healthful drink for kids or grown-ups to enjoy. It sounds a little odd, but it actually tastes very good and can act as a good alternative to coffee for adults (who don't want the caffeine) or kids (who don't like coffee!) Molasses is a good source of Vitamin B6 and Selenium, and a very good source of Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. I make mine with blackstrap, but you can use the lighter variety if you (or your kids) prefer. I got this idea/recipe from a peculiar cookbook from the 70s for sugar-free (and artifical sweetener-free) diets called "The Ecological Eclair."

I just came up with this. I wasn't sure how it would taste, but it taste just as good as the old fashioned white gravy!

Recipe #306761

This is one of my favorite salad dressings. It's also great as a marinade for most any kind of meat.

Recipe #56625

Given the option, I'd eat nothing but bread. And this recipe uses my favorite ingredient: flaked sea salt! Yum!

Recipe #220027

Adapted from Taste of Home. Makes a great salad dressing or marinade. Plan ahead - needs to refrigerate several hours or overnight.

Recipe #274989

Plan ahead the dressing needs a few hours chilling time before serving, you may want to adjust some ingredients after you make this, I would suggest to start with the stated amounts and add in more after mixing, you may use 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese in place of the feta cheese --- if you are not a lover of garlic then I suggest to pass this by! --- servings are only esitmated.

Dry Jerk Seasoning Mix

Recipe #156341

One of our favorite recipes. A friend gave me a hummus recipe a few years ago, but my husband has altered it so many times that this is the recent final product. Tastes so good with great flavor! Our favorite way to eat this hummus is on bread with sliced avocados and tomatoes on top. Also tastes great in a pita sandwich with avocados, tomatoes, lettuce, sprouts, cucumber, etc. You can use it as a salad dressing by doubling the water. I'm not crazy about it as a salad dressing, but others I know have enjoyed it.

Great as a burger replacement! Slice it up and top a bed of greens! Or mix it into a pasta with extra olive oil. Can be served hot or cold!

Recipe #61725

The bright, bold flavor notes of feta cheese, tomato, and garlic compliment the mellow tastes of mozzarella and avocado in this warm vegetarian sandwich. For more more information and photos on this recipe visit www.3zestylemons.com.

Recipe #329517

This tastes similar to the brand, "Annie's Natural Goddess Dressing." It's also great for chicken and just about anything else you can dip into it. Try it as a sandwich spread. NOTE: The recipe can be adjusted to your own taste preferences; more or less garlic or onions, etc., until you find the perfect combination of tastes to suit your family. This recipe is a good foundation recipe. NOTE 2: When using the food processor, don't blend too long which incorporates air, making the dressing very thick. Just add a little water to thin it out.

Caramelized garlic is very easy to make. Use this flavorful condiment with roasted meats or poultry or top a salad, diced can be topped on bread. If you like you can use the remaining sugar in a pot of beans or add some roasted nuts to it toss and top a salad.

Recipe #118874

I came up with this recipe while searching for the perfect "Egg Drop Soup". My picky 9 year old likes it, so I feel it is kid friendly.

Recipe #61070

Fish and chips is one of Britain's favourite and most famous take-aways, often accompanied with Chip Shop Curry Sauce. Here is a simple recipe to have that unique melt-in-your-mouth fried fish at home.

Recipe #18481

A great way to prepare a crispy fish fillet that's topped with a light creamy sauce and served with tomatoes and lettuce on a bun.

Recipe #96413

These are lentils are delightfully different and will last 10 days or so in the fridge. This recipe makes heaps but they are so very morish. If you like red lentils you'll love this one! (A Belinda Jeffrey's recipe changed slightly to suit my family.)
