  • Can you please tell me where you got the dressing jars (with lids)? I have been looking for these! Thanks.

  • The guestbook is very well done. Both my son’s are airtst’s and photographers. One of my son’s is a graphic airtst. I know quality when I see it. This is high quality. You have a gift from God. It’s so good to see you are using it. And using it well. God bless and thanks for joining me at Daily Grace.

  • Thank you dear friends,Yes Mimi, I did the pohtosohot for her ceremony and took all the portraits myself with very little editing. Thanks for the HUGE compliment!!And yes, Tammy, the book has been ordered and is veiwable online for distant guests to add a few words if they are given the password, but it’s also coming in the mail in hardback. The portraits are already laid out in the fashion that I put them and the guests will sign the guestbook on the page next to it. Thanks. For their official ceremony book they’re paying me to put together a ‘Press Album’, which is similar to a childs/baby’s boardbook, where every single page in the album is on a very hardstock mounted cardboard like photo paper that doesn’t bend. It’s super elegant and is used for perserving major ceremonies like Weddings, Graduations, and Quinceaf1era’s. I won’t begin the work layout on the press album until after the ceremony next weekend but I’m anxious for the guestbook to arrive which should be at the end of this week sometime. Thanks again ladies for your input and wish me prayers!!Blessings,~Sarah

  • feedthebear51 Posted on I photograph a lot. Does the pixma 4850 or siliamr pixma produce great quality photos? Is this true about dlab quality ? I have a small HP that i bought 6-8 years ago. It is OK but you can see the pixels on the paper if you look it closely. Also how many photos on A4 can you print with one set of inks?

  • The only issue I always have with homemade salad dressing is the two-week limit. I don’t eat THAT much salad in two weeks that I’d use the whole bottle! And if I do eat enough salad to finish a bottle, I really like to mix up my salads and will hardly ever use the same dressing twice in a row!

  • Love these photos, your foodie photos are getting more awesome with each post!

  • Thanks for sharing very nice and delicious recipe. The ingredients are very good for health. I always make salad dressings at home and i am very good at it.

    ashley nicole.

  • Hi Elsie! Is there anyway to subscribe to your blog??? I can’t find the option anywhere!

  • Oh, the honey mustard looks delicious. Can’t believe I haven’t thought to try that one yet!

    I make my own raspberry vinaigrette, which is SUPER simple and makes any salad divine. If you want the recipe, I posted it on my blog:

  • Cilantro lime, get in my belly! I usually make my own dressings — my go-to is balsamic vinegar, a decent olive oil, a little finely-chopped garlic, a sprinkle of pepper and a squirt of honey. Delish!

  • I have a hankering for Thai salad with a lime dressing… wait I just found the perfect lime dressing recipe!

    Thanks girls.



  • I always make my own salad dressings. They are easier than you think. I mix up the ingredients in a mason jar. So much better for you than the store bought kind! Can’t wait to try these recipes. Thanks!

  • The first photo has a typo in cilantro :/ Not sure if that’s fixable but I wanted to point it out in case you didn’t already know!


  • Love salads and homemade dressings! And those spoons are to die for!

  • Yum! I am going to have to try this out, I make my own ranch because I don’t like store bought but I’ve usually stuck to buying other dressings I know I like. I love the cilantro idea! I’m trying that for dinner! Thanks for the great ideas!

  • Please tell me I’m the only one that didn’t know that honey mustard was actually made with honey and mustard…

  • The cilantro-lime looks great for a salad with black beans and corn in it!

    I think normally vinaigrette’s normally have vinegar in them though, right? o.O

  • That cilantro-lime dressing looks so good! I might have to try it for date night tonight! Thanks for sharing!

    xx Ashleigh

  • Want to try the lime cilantro dressing. Hubby makes our ‘go to’ dressing, raspberry vinaigrette. Will be nice to switch it up a bit.

  • these are perfect! love the jars, and the super simple recipes!

  • I’ve always stuck with the same salad dressing recipe but I really want to try these ones now, especially the cilantro-lime one. Sounds yummy

  • mmmm these are the kind of recipes that I love!!
    nothing like a salad with a good dressing…ok time to eat I’m hungry, I think that for today I’ll make the honey mustard!

  • Thanks for this! We consume bottles and bottles of dressing. I think this is much,much healthier.

  • I need to do this more often, any chance to keep out all the processed food! You ladies are so inspiring 🙂

  • Making salad dressing is so easy, and such a great way to use ingredients you may already have. Extra basil from that pasta recipe? Throw it in!

  • I don’t know what I love more – these recipes or your pictures! Loving the spoons… you’re so creative and pay great attention to detail!

    xox Sam
