Off The Counter


Off The Counter features my latest food obsession:  ranch dressing.  Not just any random dressing,  but the classic Hidden Valley one we all grew up with.  At some point the foodie mania that took over our generation got the best of me and I simply discounted it as a staple destined to be kept in the back of the refrigerator, out of sight and out of reach.

Lately, however, even my pickiest little eater has been dipping veggies in it and therefore  tasting foods he would have never otherwise sampled.  I realized that this old time favorite of mine has become a vehicle for trying new foods for my discerning young eaters.  If you and your family are not already dipping in it, move it towards the front of your fridge.  It is well deserving of  this new and  're-evaluated'  placement...

What's your new/old food obsession?
