Ranch Dressing

I found this easy recipe today and although I love my dip since it’s 3 ingredients: dill, garlic salt, sour cream; I was looking for a good ranch dressing and this fit the bill. Let me know what changes you make and visit Mindy’s website and tell her thanks too.

I finally made this as a dressing. It was really salty! My hubby didn’t mind but I did. So if you are like me go for less salt and add more later if it needs it.

Homemade Ranch Mix


1 cup dried minced onions
7 tbsp parsley flakes
4 tbsp unrefined sea salt (if using refined salt use less)
1 tbsp garlic powder


Mix together and store in an air tight container.

Tip: You can also try adding some dill to your mix. I LOVE it with added dill, but my husband does not, so I leave it out.

To make the dip: Mix 1 Tablespoons dry mix per 1 cup sour cream. Mix up a few hours before serving to blend flavors. (Sometimes, I also like to do half sour cream and half yogurt (or kefir). This makes the dip a little runnier and gives it a really great flavor!)

Bonus! You can also use this mix to make Ranch dressing: Mix 2 Tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk, sour cream, kefir, or yogurt.

Stuffed Mushrooms

This is a recipe created by my nephew who went to culinary school.  The quantities are estimates cause guess what he doesn’t measure just like his aunt!  It’s super good. I’m going to make these tonight without the sausage and put in kale.  My hubby and kids don’t like mushrooms but I do so I have to come up with some alternatives in case I end up eating all of them.

Stuffed Mushrooms(Matt Thueson)

2 packages mushrooms

¼ lb or less Natural Sausage

¼ green pepper

1/16 red onion

½ c grated Romano cheese

¼ c sour cream

¼ c cheddar cheese

Try some spinach too.

Bake at 400? Til mushrooms are juicy.
