Low-Fat Buttermilk Ranch Dressing and Dip

Homemade salad dressings are so good—and one of my favorites is Ranch! I usually use low-fat dressings on my salads, so I thought I’d try making a low-fat Ranch dressing. You can use fresh or dried herbs in this recipe—whatever you prefer or have on hand!

Cranberry Buttermilk Bread

It’s good when it’s still warm from the oven, either on its own or spread with butter, cream cheese or jam—or you can cool it completely and serve it the same ways.

I think this quick bread works best with fresh blackberries, but if you want to try using frozen, your baking time will be a little longer.
