About Me

I have been cooking my way through life for over 50 years, beginning with mud pies as a child. I've turned a corner now and feel a Renaissance in my life. Recipes and Random Thoughts is my personal spin in a blog about how to prepare good food and how it prepares you for life. I want to share with you, honest to goodness food punctuated with perspective from the special memories and moments that have marked my journey.

Green Goddess Salad Dressing

Sometimes I've just got to have a change from vinagrette.  I have a variety of vinegars in my pantry, but every now and then, I give into a richer mayo based dressing.  This Green Goddess is loaded with lots of what my husband calls "green things"  and it's another incidence when I've got too many fresh herbs around and things like buttermilk that need to be used up.  And, yes, I do keep anchovies in my pantry.  They give a distinct but subtle flavor if used correctly.

1 cup mayonaise
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup buttermilk
3 tbls chopped tarragon
3 tbls chopped chives
1 tbls chopped dill
1/2 cup chopped flat leaf Italian parsley
1 tbls tarragon vinegar
2 anchovie filets
1 garlic clove chopped
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper

Put all ingredients in the food processor and process about 1 min.
Keeps in refrigerator 1 week.
