Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip

Homemade Ranch Dressing and Dip by myra byanka

This delicious dressing and dip (e.g. crudités, chicken wings) takes some prep time, but is so much better than bottled dressing, which has, to me, and unpleasant preservative aftertaste.

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings

Asian-style Deep Fried Chicken Wings by A.L. Wiebe

I have been making this version of chicken wings for years now, and they are always a hit. This is just the basic marinade recipe, so depending on my mood, I spice them up some with extra Sriracha sauce, maybe some garlic. Do what makes you happy, but enjoy and have fun with it. *P.S. this will likely destroy your deep-fry oil, so…
