Dry Buttermilk Ranch Mix

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2012
This recipe is the closest I've encountered to a substitute for store-bought Ranch. Thank you for those who rated properly and convinced me to try this. BTW: There is nothing more obnoxious than rating a recipe, complete with review: for a recipe you’ve modified completely out of proportion to the original – “ooooh, we just loved this after I omitted this, added this, doubled this. . .” for a recipe you haven’t tried – “Oh, I haven’t tried this, but I love it!” for a recipe whose directions you didn’t follow or whose ingredients you changed or omitted – “We left out half the ingredients, and we’re sooooo disappointed with the results.” This one has them all. Please rate the original recipe, as is. Your modifications shouldn’t feature into your ratings at all. You're supposed to be rating THIS one, not your version. This certainly explains why all the recipes on here are magically 4’s & 5’s. Not helpful at all, people.

Jamie's Cranberry Spinach Salad

Reviewed: Apr. 17, 2012
I'm sure this salad was delicious, but I couldn't bring myself to make it as published, instead dressing it with something far less sweet. Since the sugar content isn't part of the nutritional info, you might find it enlightening to know that it contains a whopping 174 g (that's a full cup's worth) of sugar, or 2T per serving, assuming you used sweetened dried cranberries. If you managed to find unsweetened cranberries, you can reduce that figure to a "mere" 96 grams. Having as much or more sugar than your average cupcake qualifies it as more of a dessert. Because salads are typically thought of as healthy, you should know what your'e getting into with this one! Rating is for recipe as published, not with adjustments.
