Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! We were surprised with a white Christmas after all. Not quite enough for sledding, but look out. We might be knee deep in fresh powder by tomorrow.
By New Year’s, The Littles should be crushing the hills on their new sleds. Me too. I’m totally excited to rip down some hills. If I don’t bang up my knee first. Or slam into a tree.
Speaking of New Year’s…this is limbo week with all the food. There’s the NYE party dips, chips, apps, and drinks. Combined with the January health gig.
Which directly ties in with this Homemade Ranch Seasoning. There are mountains of yummy recipes that request a packet of store bought ranch seasoning. I love all those recipes — minus the chems. Like, I really don’t like the tongue-tie ingredients.
But all is not lost. Hardly.
This Homemade Ranch Seasoning is all-natural, with pantry spices you probably already have in your kitchen this very moment. You might not have buttermilk powder on hand, but it’s easily purchased at major grocery stores or online.
I got a big bag of it online because I know I’ll always make my own ranch seasoning from now and forever more.
Call me quirky, but I smile at that bag of buttermilk.
There are several recipes for ranch seasoning in cookbooks and online, but I kept tweaking, twisting, and tinkering until we got a mixture that was flavorful enough for big taste buds. It’s gotta rival the store bought packet, right?
This DIY ranch seasoning can be used to make ranch dressing (obvi) or sour cream dip or put into recipes with potatoes, chicken, etc. etc. It’s 100% customizable to your ranch needs.
Here’s to the limbo-est diet week of the year, full of dips and apps with some healthy kicked in.Print
