Better Than Ranch Veggie Dip

Have fun with your veggies.

Have fun with your veggies!

My chef brother-in-law asked me to bring veggies and dip to a family get together.  He said I should try mixing ranch with parmesan cheese and freshly cracked pepper.

So I did.

And it’s great!

Now, we often have it in our fridge with fresh veggies for dipping anytime.

Just for fun, here’s more on veggie trays…

My attempt at "Oscar the Grouch" for Ozzy's first b-day.
