    Mavis – I would be delighted if you did fajita seasoning. I went to Winco to hit up the bulk section and I was a bit surprised it’s not stocked. So far the only store that I’ve found it in is Yokes, which can tend to be a bit spendy. Thanks again for all you do Mavis!

    I was JUST thinking last night that I needed to search and see if there was a recipe somewhere for this..now I don’t have to! Thanks!!

    Hi Mavis! Since you come up with some amazing recipes, I have a mission, should you choose to take it. I have sunflower oil and wish to use it in dressing for broccoli slaw. Can’t find one, maybe I’m just too darn blonde today to accomplish a search for it. Any help would be hot. Thanks. On LOVE this ranch recipe by the way, much better then what I currently make.

    I was wondering if one tablespoon is the amount that is in one packet of ranch mix you would buy in the store? Some of my recipes call for one packet and I was not sure how much to add.
    I found your blog from a pin that someone had on pinterest and I am so glad I found it! My husband and I are trying to make it on one income so that I can stay at home and your ideas will help so much!! Thank you for posting all of your tips :)

    I had t buy a set of those plastic Rubbermaid shelves from WalMart and turned it into a spice rack container. I have over 200 containers of spices, sugar, salt, dried beans, rices and other food items in it.
