Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Ranch Dressing



I have been wanted to figure out a ranch dressing for the longest time. Than my daughter (Hailey) recently mentioned that it is her favorite dressing. We haven't bought it for the longerst time because the commercial stuff has such JUNK in it, and I knew better. I used to buy it from the health food store but it so expensive and goes so fast...I stopped doing that in light of our new budget. So when I heard her mention that it was her favorite, I purposed to finally do it. We are all very pleased with the results! This recipe makes a pint.

1C Mayonnaise
1/2C Sour Cream
1/4C+2T Buttermilk
All seasonings are dried
1/4 tsp each:
Dill
Oregano
Chives
Sea Salt
Parsley
1/8 tsp each:
Cayenne Pepper
Paprika

~Mix wet ingredients together
~In a seperate cereal bowl, add all the seasonings together and mix well than add to the bowl of wet ingrediants and mix well.
~Put in fridge and let strengthen for 4-6 hours

*If you need to use right away or you like stronger flavor than make your measures "heaping"
**If you need a thicker dip than reduce buttermilk to 2T or try using buttermilk powder instead. *** If you are in a rush, you can just measure your seasonings right into your wet bowl, however, you may not get an even seasoning, you get stronger tastes of one herb than another in different bites, so premixing it will give you a more uniform (flawless) dressing. Enjoy!

I get excited when I search my google reader for a recipe and find one from you. :D I use the same base, but I'm not very adventurous with the spices. Thank you much.
