Make your Own Spices Series
is a weekly series here at Frugal
Farmhouse. To help you save
money I will be sharing my
homemade spice recipes each

1 tsp dried Parsley
3/4 Tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp seasoned salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp onion powder
1/8 tsp dried thyme

In a small bowl stir together all the ingredients. Use as a substitute for Ranch Dressing Mix.

To make dressing, mix this recipe with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk.

For dip, mix this recipe with 1 3/4 cups sour cream and 1/4 cup of buttermilk.

Also you can use this in place of a Ranch dressing mix in a recipe.

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

BROCCOLI CHEDDAR CHICKEN BRAID

Ingredients
2 cans Pillsbury Original Crescent Rolls
2 cups chicken chunks, cooked
2 cups cheddar cheese
2 cups broccoli, frozen, steamed and chopped
1/2 cup light mayonnaise
1 egg yolk
fresh rosemary

Instructions
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
On a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, spread both cans of crescents length wise to form a long rectangle.
Press each of the seams to form a single layer of dough.
In a large bowl, combine chicken, cheese, broccoli and mayonnaise
Spread mixture over the center of the croissant dough evenly to create a log.
Using a sharp knife, cut horizontal strips 1 inch apart down each side of the crescent dough.
Fold the dough strips over the top of the chicken mixture, alternating left and right to create a braid.
Brush the top of the braid with a beaten egg yolk and sprinkle fresh rosemary on top.
Bake for 28 – 30 minutes until golden brown.
