Prefer to make your own ranch seasoning from scratch? Try out this simple recipe here!

It’s so easy to make, and is PACKED with flavor.

We used to fry this dish on the stove top in a LOT of butter.  It was amazing…BUT in the interest of healthy living, we started baking it instead.

It’s still amazing!

    hi! I'm shannon

    I’m a wife, mom of three, doctor, and blogger! In 2018, I decided to turn my mom blog, into a personal finance blog so others could follow along on our journey to pay off over HALF a MILLION dollars in student loan and practice start up debt. I hope you enjoy following along, and maybe even find some inspiration along the way.
