    We are enjoying these and it is helping me convert the kids. I didn’t think they would be interested but they are so I am running with it! In week 2 it mentions Rip’s Ranch dressing as a dip but I can’t find that recipe in my book or on this site- anyone know where I can find his recipe for ranch? I have Lindsay Nixon’s HH cookbook with ranch dressing -is it similar? Thanks!!!
