Homemade Ranch DressingIt was 45 degrees here this morning, so that’s hot cocoa and butternut squash weather in my book. While you guys submitted lots of fun fall recipes last week, I actually chose to feature this Homemade Ranch Dressing because I can’t wait to try it! Seriously, where was this recipe when I was pregnant and craving ranch, but trying to avoid the packet stuff?

I love swapping out greek yogurt in place of sour cream for a protein (and budget) boost!
