When it comes to the world of wings and all things buffalo chicken, are you Team Ranch or  Team Blue Cheese?

I am totally Team Blue Cheese, but my husband is Team Ranch. To be honest, I’m not a huge ranch fan in general, but I know he enjoys it. And blue cheese doesn’t go with everything…


This week’s blog posts – two recipes! – came from my husband’s preference for ranch and his general interest in all things flavored with ranch seasoning. It all started with a recipe for Bacon Ranch Cheeseburger Cups, which I saw and knew that he would love. We tried it one night for dinner – my daughter loved helping make “hamburger cupcakes” and even enjoyed eating one (#momwin) – and both enjoyed it quite a bit.

From there, I was on a kick. I wanted to make more ranch-flavored things for my hubby. I started with this recipe today, homemade ranch seasoning. It’s not that the packets of Hidden Valley Ranch mix were bad, but I like the ability to control the seasoning in our foods – using less salt, the ease of measuring a bit more or less than a recipe calls for from a jar of my own seasoning.

Like most mixes, this takes minutes to whip up. It does use powdered buttermilk, so it needs to be stored in the fridge, but it will keep for a while.

Tips & Tricks:

  • Some of the spices called for in this recipe are not ones I typically have in my pantry. Rather than buying a whole jar, check out your local organic market (such as MOM’s) where you can buy spices in the quantity you need. It’ll save quite a bit of money and unused spices won’t expire sitting in the cupboard.

Recipe Suggestions:

Worried about making the mix and not having enough recipes to make it worthwhile? Here are a few of the ranch recipes I’ve been making or bookmarking for upcoming kitchen projects!
