Raspberry Poppyseed Salad

Here is the recipe for the salad that we served at Carolyn Stevenson's Baby Shower

1 bag baby spinach
1/4 red onion, sliced very thin and diced
1 small box fresh raspberries
1 cup candied walnuts
1 cup feta cheese, crumbled

Toss together. Drizzle with dressing right before serving. (The walnuts stay crunchier if you add them on top at the end)


1/8 cup Marie's Poppy seed dressing
1/8 cup Wishbone Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette

Mix together equal parts then pour over dressing.

Egg Roll Wrappers

Homemade egg roll wrappers are easy to make and often less dry than storebought wrappers.

Prep Time: 1 hour

Total Time: 1 hourIngredients:

•2 cups all-purpose flour
•1 large egg
•1 teaspoon salt
•1/2 cup ice water


Sift the flour into a large bowl.

Lightly beat the egg with the salt. Stir in 1/4 cup of water. Add the egg and the ice water to the flour. Stir in as much of the remaining 1/4 cup of water as needed to form a sticky batter.

Turn the dough out onto lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.

Cover the dough and let rest for at least 30 minutes.

Knead the dough briefly, then cut in half. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface.Roll each half into a cylinder. Lightly score so that you have 12 equal pieces. Roll each piece out into a 3 1/2-inch square.

Stack the wrappers while you are preparing the remainder, covering with a damp cloth so that they don't dry out. If necessary, lightly dust the wrappers with flour or cornstarch to prevent them from sticking together. Use immediately, or refrigerate or freeze in a plastic bag until ready to use.
