Celery Seed Dressing

One problem with salad is that I love it SWIMMING in dressing. And even low cal and low fat dressing really pack on the calories when you put on as much as I like to. So this is the first of a series of cornstarch based salad dressings I make – the cornstarch helps thicken the dressing so you barely miss the oil. And at only 3 calories per tablespoonful, I can really pour it on 🙂

Cayenne Shrimp

The seasoning here is JUST PERFECT. Not overpowering, but definitely not bland. It was one of those meals that was JUST RIGHT.
