Egg Free Caesar Dressing

Do you read alot of books?

I tend to go through these highs and lows, I’ll read a bunch at one time and then nothing for like 10 months.  While I was in Mexico I read this incredible book entitled Bread & Wine {a love letter to life around the table with recipes} by Shauna Niequist.  I had no idea how much this book would impact me.

The past couple of months I have been going through this healing process.  In June, Mike and I found out we were pregnant with our second child. We told our entire family while we were in Hawaii and when we came back we went to the doctor for our first ultrasound to see the baby. We heard the heartbeat and found out that we were 8 weeks along and that the baby would be due in February.

So much joy and excitement!

A week later, I started to bleed here and there. As the weekend approached I started to have really bad pain and excessive bleeding. We went into the doctors office first thing Monday morning and found out that we had miscarried.

Nothing can prepare you for that moment… seeing nothing on the ultrasound screen. No heartbeat. No baby. I felt like my heart had gone into my stomach.  It took all I had to keep from breaking down and balling in front of the ultrasound technician. The hopes and dreams we had for this baby were shattered.

So, as I said, Mike and I have been going through a grieving process, but looking forward to what God has for our family. The Bread & Wine book was not only incredible because it talks about hospitality, how all good things happen around the table, and has great recipes at the end of each chapter. But Shauna shares her life with you. She shares the highs and lows. She has had multiple miscarriages and waited several years before they were blessed with a baby.

There were lots of tears on my end reading through this book, as I grieved yet again for what was lost. But was also reminded yet again of  Gods faithfulness and goodness in my life.

I can’t tell you why bad things happen. Why people have to go through hardships or why there is so much pain in our world. But I can tell you, that I have found comfort, peace, and joy through the hardships in my life.  God is my comforter, my rock, and my ever present help in time of need.  I know that He has a better plan for me than I have for myself, and I can’t wait to see that plan unfold!

One of the awesome recipes in the Bread & Wine book was this Caesar Salad Dressing recipe. What I loved about this Caesar Dressing is that it requires no eggs or anchovies, so very pregnancy friendly. 🙂 In my opinion it rivals the Cheesecake Factory’s Caesar Dressing! I hope you all enjoy!
