HIDDEN VALLEY Ranch Dressing : copycat recipe. Pinner said, "The Best Homemade Ranch Recipe ~ It tastes exactly like the Hidden Valley Ranch Packets that you add mayo and milk to....but WITHOUT the MSG and at A FRACTION OF THE PRICE! If my kids can't tell the difference when they dipped their carrots...no one will!"

How to make your own: peanut butter, yogurt, bread, spaghetti sauce, pasta, biscotti, salsa, guacamole, jams and jellies, baby food, granola bars, cheeses, barebecue sauce, ice cream, hummus, pesto, applesauce, pretzels, potato chips and dog treats.

A batch of mold and mildew remover that doesn't hurt my chest for .50? Awesome! 15 drops of tea tree oil 15 drops lavender essential oil (we chose lavender rather than lemon grass simply based on scent preference) A small amount of organic lavender castile soap 2 cups of water

1 cup of water 1/4 cup of rubbing alcohol 2 Tbsp. Dawn dish soap (only use Dawn) 2 Tbsp. ammonia (optional) Stir and pour over cotton cloths.

Amazing: Grind a handful of rice until u get a fine but coarse flour. Add a few spoons of raw honey to the mixture along with enough apple cider vinegar to obtain a thick paste. If the cracks are very deep, add a spoon of olive oil. Soak feet for 20 minutes & gently massage with this paste.- just in case feet ever get icky!
