Making your own homemade salad dressings can actually be fairly simple, and the taste is far superior to the store bought stuff. Plus most packaged salad dressings are full of unnecessary additives (including refined sweeteners) that you would never cook with at home…so this is a great place to start when it comes to making the switch to real food. Below is a super simple recipe for the pictured Mustard Vinaigrette along with some other tips and recipes to keep your salads fresh and fun!

The ingredients in this Thai pasta sauce may sound unusual at first, but the end product is an exotic and delicious combination.
We love teriyaki sauce at our house and find that it’s great in stir-fry, on fish like sea bass and salmon, and on meat like chicken or pork tenderloin. This particular teriyaki sauce was inspired by a sea bass recipe my mother-n-law emailed to my husband back in 1998…and I still have a copy of it! We were both in college at the time so looking back I am impressed we were even contemplating homemade teriyaki, but I have to say I am equally impressed that I still have the print out (and that it was easy to locate) in my recipe collection. I personally think a long-running collection of favorite recipes is just invaluable. What old recipes have you been holding onto for years?
