Caesar Salad I
I gave it a 2 star previously because it was runny and then went to my dad to ask him how to make a proper salad (he worked as a waiter in a fine dining restaurant for many years making table-side Caesar salad). The ingredients were the same but you MUST use a wooden bowl and you MUST slowly drizzle the oil in while vigorously whisking. This is how you get the creamy texture of a Caesar dressing. The egg also doesn't need to be warmed. He also said not to use extra virgin olive oil as it affects the flavour, maybe half EVOO and half canola. He also only juiced a quarter lemon not a full. I watched as he made it and it made all the difference. Hope this helps with all the people having problems with it.

Spicy Refrigerator Dill Pickles
This recipe is SO good and SO easy to make. I cut the sugar in half as others suggested but otherwise made it exactly as written. I am not a fan of sour foods so I found it too tart but my husband who loves sour thought they were perfect. Definitely a keeper!
