Fudge Bars

My mother-in-law made these when we visited this summer. So good.

1 stick of butter
1 c. brown sugar
1 egg
3/4 c flour
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
2 c. oatmeal
1 t vanilla

Mix above ingredients. Press 1/2 of the mixture into greased 9x13 pan, reserving 1/2 of mixture for later.

Melt 6oz chocolate chips, 1 can sweetened condensed milk and 1 tsp butter.  Add 1/4 tsp salt and 1 tsp vanilla.

Pour melted mixture over dough.  Drop reserved dough over chocolate layer.

Bake 20-25 minutes at 350degrees.

Homemade Ranch Dressing & Dip

I have been in search of my favorite homemade ranch dressing. This combination of spices has been my favorite so far. This recipe was combined from two or three other recipes I found.

3 T. dried parsley
2 T. dried minced onion
2 T. black pepper
2 T. garlic powder
1 t. paprika
2 t. season salt
2 t. dried dill
1 t. cayenne pepper

Combine all and mix well. Store in airtight container.

1/2 c. mayonnaise
1/2 c. sour cream
1-3 T. of dry mix or to taste.

Add milk, to thin to dressing like consistency.
