Mommy Snack

 Here's a quick little snack for you, mommy or not. I call it "Mommy Snack" because it's what I eat during nap time. Everything is quiet except for my loud, joyous munching. You know, I like something special just for me, minus the sharp, whiny cries of my brood. Simple, healthy and delish...most important. Assemble and eat.

Mommy Snack Recipe

1 rice cake (I like Lundberg brand, brown rice and organic)
1 tbls. peanut butter
1 fresh strawberry, sliced
drizzle of honey or agave nectar

Enjoy your snack time a little better with this Mommy snack.

Herbaceous Buttermilk Dressing

This dressing could quite possibly be the nectar of the Salad Dressing Gods. Okay, maybe overstating a bit, but it's tangy, creamy, herby and addictive. What's not to love? Not to mention it's super simple to make. So dust off your blenders...

Herbaceous Buttermilk Dressing

prep time: 15 min. cook time: 0 minutes serves: 4

2/3 c. buttermilk
1/3 c. olive oil
4 tbls. red wine vinegar
4 tbls. mayo
handful of each: dill, parsley and basil
1 green onion
salt and pepper to taste

Place all ingredients in blender and blend. Note on buttermilk: if you do not have any handy, just take 1 c. milk and add 1 tbls. vinegar or lemon juice. Let it set 10 min. and presto! you've got buttermilk. Dressing keeps well in frig for 2-3 days.
