Ranch Dressing or Dip for an awesome Game Day treat

I saw this one and knew it was definitely one of those things that will be made often in my house.


  • 1 cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup full fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 tbsp. buttermilk
  • ½ tsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/4 tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. fresh parsley, chopped

  1. In a medium bowl, combine sour cream, yogurt, buttermilk, vinegar, garlic, salt, onion powder, dill, and parsley until well combined. 
  2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes.
  4. Serve cold with vegetables, chips, 
  5. As a dip for wings, 
  6. Or in place of mayonnaise on a sandwich or slider.
I am definitely liking this recipe.  There really isn't anything that isn't in most refrigerators or pantries, but it definitely packs a great flavor for so many things.  I believe this would be a great companion for the Green Chili Chicken Sliders I told you about before.

I know for us, it will become a go to for any event, but will be great for those game day needs.  And if you need a server for game day or frankly any day it is the Tupperware Serving Center!  I can even see bringing this out for a New Years Day celebration!

You can check all these out on my Tupperware Site.  Or ask any question, because I am sure you know I love my Tupperware.

To keep big brother happy I received this product for free to facilitate my review, in exchange for my honest opinion. I will only highlight products that I feel will be of benefit to or enjoyed by my readers. For more information regarding product review, please refer to my media kit

I am not a big fan of "pushing the holidays" but I thought it might be cute.  It was a mixture of fantasy, paranormal and romance all rolled into one.
I have to say that I really did enjoy this book.
Holiday Spirit For Hire
Perhaps its because I still believe in miracles and magic and the possibilities of both, especially during the Christmas season.

It was a nice quick read, but not a child's story. Now there wasn't anything explicit, but there were moments where you may not want your young teen to read. 

If you are looking for something to get into the holiday spirit or to make you believe that there still is magic in the world, this is perfect.

Who knows, it could even make you believe in the Holiday Spirit again.  You know that spirit that we all knew existed when we were little.

I did receive this product for free or at a steep discount as part of the Tomoson.com review program in exchange for my honest review. Regardless, I never recommend anything that I don't feel would be of benefit to my readers.
