Again, I’m stealing this recipe so I can use it in another stolen recipe, but isn’t that what we modern cooks do? Beg, borrow, and steal.
My wonderful friend Kelli has some amazing cooking tips and she doesn’t have them in a good place for me to easily go to, so I told her I am going to start typing them up on my blog. Of course, I’ll give her the credit, and then I send her the link to her own recipe (so funny). This particular blog today, though, won’t even be hers. I’m outsourcing my homemade ranch dressing mix recipe because the Universe knows I could never have figured it out on my own. Plus, I haven’t actually tried it yet, but don’t want to go searching the interwebs to find a recipe when I’m ready to make Kelli’s Famous Buffalo Chicken CrockPot Meal. The only searching I’ll need to do is to go to my own blog to find it.
I have found two blogs who have pretty similar and wonderful-sounding ranch dressing recipes so I’m just going to spotlight them here:
http://www.gimmesomeoven.com/homemade-ranch-seasoning-mix/ Gimme Some Oven mixes up your original Hidden Valley Ranch Packet sans the gluten. If you’re a traditionalist, head here. The pictures are so pretty you’ll want your pre-foodprocessor ingredients to look just like hers. I think I’m going to try. I’ll add my photo the photo when I decide to make the Buffalo Chicken (it was going to be this morning, but I realized I don’t have all the ingredients. I have the most unusual: dried buttermilk-weird, I know. Bummer!).
http://snappygourmet.com/2013/08/07/homemade-ranch-seasoning If you’re up for some variety in your ranch-making, then head over to Snappy Gourmet for original, bold onion, garlic-dill, lemon-poppy, Italian-style and Mexican-style, etc. I’ve never been a ranch dressing user, but with these endless possibilities, I can see some experimenting in my future!
Signing off to take a walk up to the local Farmer’s Market on this beautiful Saturday morning. Maybe I can get the rest of the ingredients I need.
