Homemade Ranch Seasoning

When I found this wonderful recipe and gift idea, I thought it was GREAT.  It is so easy to mix together, uses ingredients you will most likely already have in stock in your pantry, and can be customized any way you can imagine.

I used some of my old baby jars that I had saved, ribbon, tissue paper, contruction paper, scrapbook paper and a hole punch.  You can print out the instructions in any shape you want to create a tag.

I also really love the fact that this recipe can be used in a number of ways.  The instructions are to make either a ranch dressing or ranch dip, but I’ve been able to use this seasoning in a Bacon Ranch Slow-Cooker Chicken recipe as well as the seasoning for baked Tilapia.  I’m sure there are numerous recipes out there that use ranch seasoning in them.  Just so much less expensive than buying the packets at the store.
