Something borrowed....

....something yummy!
No, this isn't a wedding post--it's just about me, getting recipes off of my friends and then sharing the wealth.

My friend Sandra is one of the most amazing people I know. She is the mother of 7, a faithful wife, and an awesome cook. And by cook I don't mean "makes a few good dishes". I mean, "makes her own bread, yogurt, hummus, etc. as well as good food"! I am slowly gleaning food wisdom from her, and hope to be as "pure" of a cook as her someday. I am sure her children are almost completely free of preservatives. :-)

One of the recipes I asked her to share with me is for her ranch dip/dressing. It is absolutely amazing, and I always eat an embarrassing amount when she brings it to church gatherings or serves it at her house. Now that I have the recipe, I can eat that much in the solitude of my own home. Kidding! (ok, not really....I am serious)

So without further rambling, here is the awesome recipe. Enjoy!

*Sandra's Dip-Dressing*

1 cup minced onion (the dry variety)
1/2 cup parsley flakes
1/4 cup dill weed (dry)
1/4 cup salt
1 T. garlic powder

Mix this all up and store in an airtight container.

To make dip/dressing:

Mix 2 T. dry mix with 1 cup mayo and 1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt. To use as dressing, thin with several tablespoons of milk.


  1. I agree Sandra's dip is the best! It is all we use now for Ranch too. I have altered it a tiny bit in that I put the dry seasoning mix into the blender to make it into almost a powder form then store it as directed. We ate some with veggies at dinner last night. Yum. Certainly increases the amount of raw veggies I eat :)

  2. Me too...I look forward to salad and raw veggies more than ever! :-)
