A couple of years ago I started by making homemade ranch dressing mix. I’m not kidding, after you have had homemade ranch salad dressing, you will not want to buy it from the store again. My boys won’t eat Hidden Valley Ranch anymore.


Italian dressing is also very easy to make at home. All you need to do is make the mix and then add oil and vinegar when you are ready to make up a batch.
