I live by this quote and it’s what motivates me.  Food can transport us to special moments and significant memories.  It connects us to our past and to those around us.  Food and stories are meant to be shared so feel free to share yours with me by commenting below or e-mailing me.  I’d love to hear from you.

    • Hi Cathy! Sorry for the delay in response. I checked through my recipes and I am a big user of vinegar, so unfortunately, none of my dressings are without vinegar. Is there a particular kind of dressing you’re looking for? Something creamy or something more oil based? Happy to point you to other recipes on the web.
