This month with Allrecipes we had the opportunity to try out Hidden Valley Ranch. We love Hidden Valley Ranch in our house so I was thrilled. I have a slight addiction to ranch dressing and theirs is the best in my opinion.
For this month I made Out of this World Pasta recipe unfortunately for me left much to desire and it needed to be kicked up a notch or two. My daughter was the only person willing to eat it and after a couple days it made a visit to the good ole garbage disposal.
If I did make this again, I’d probably add garlic and dill and more herbs and seasonings to punch up the flavor. I would also add chicken, bacon,cheddar cheese and other yummy veggies.
I will say the salad did look pretty, what do you think?
The recipe is a good base for a pasta salad. It just needs some work.

The other recipe I tried out this month was Chocolate Peppermint Meringue Drops.

My kids and I fell in love with these lil pieces of yumminess. Not really a cookie but good none the less. They were light and airy, crisp on the outside with a yummy chewiness to the inside. Perfect for the holidays and will be going on my holiday baking list.
