  1. So the cake was named after Ms Filhiol, was this dressing named after some guy named Herb? (ha ha just kidding)

    I love making my own dressings just from a quality standpoint. I hadn’t thought about the $$ savings. Just one more reason to do it that way. I love this one and will try it shortly.
