Make Them Thrifty

When manufacturers make something for you, you will pay a high premium over the cost of the ingredients.  A bottle of salad dressing or a jar of meat rub to season your ribs costs MUCH more than the cost of the ingredients alone.  So why not try making some of these things at home.  Here are some definite money saving possibilities.

1T paprika, 2 tsp chili powder,  3/4 tsp salt,  1/4 tsp dry mustard,  1/4 tsp garlic powder,  1/8 tsp pepper

Chocolate Syrup:
1/2 cup cocoa powder,  2 cups sugar, 1 cup water,  1/8 tsp salt
Mix all ingredients but vanilla.  Heat and boil 3 minutes.  Add vanilla and stir

Catalina Dressing:
2/3 cup ketchup,  1/2 cup sugar,  2/3 cup oil,  1/2 cup vinegar, 1 tsp garlic powder, 2 T finely minced onion

Bleu Cheese Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise,  1/4 cup buttermilk (or rev milk with a small amount of vinegar added),  1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/4 c cottage cheese, 1/4 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 1/4 tsp salt, 1-2 ounces bleu cheese

Ranch Dressing:
1 cup mayonnaise, 1 cup buttermilk ( or milk and vinegar mix), 1/4 tsp paprika, 1/4 tsp pepper, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 Tbs minced onion, 1/8 tsp cayenne, 2 tsp dried parsley, 1/4 tsp garlic powder
