How to make brownie bites This is the time of year when there are parties, dinners, work functions and family obligations to attend. I’m always looking for something quick, delicious and affordable to take along with me.

While searching I discovered that Kraft had changed up their dressing packaging to say “Anything Dressing.” This got the wheels turning in my head. What could I create with the help of dressing? I had never thought of using dressing for more than salads but that was a brilliant idea! I discovered Walmart was having fun  Pourables Dressing Demonstrations . That would be awesome but my store was set to do it next week and I needed...
