The kids have done a variety of camps, dance and gymnastics lessons, plenty of pool time, long bike rides and we’ve taken two mini vacations. It doesn’t get much better than that! Throughout our summer adventures one thing has remained constant – the need to stay fueled. I always have plenty of quick and easy food and drink options on hand for snacking and on-the-go meal options.

Tips for ranch dip

  • This dip can be made up to one day in advance. I recommend adding the garnish of bacon and green onions right before serving.
  • Make sure your cream cheese is completely softened for the best results. You can leave your cream cheese at room temperature until it’s soft, or you can microwave it in 10 second intervals.
  • You can use other types of cheese instead of cheddar; Monterey Jack and mozzarella are both great choices.
  • Serve your dip with fresh vegetables, breadsticks, chips, crackers or baguette slices.
