Garlic Greek Ranch Dip

When is the last time you picked up a book of poetry? Maybe in this day and age you need to Google poetry, or download poetry on your kindle, nook, e-reader, ipad, or whatever tickles your fancy. I like to open my Oxford Book of English Verse and read. There is something that gets me opening that old book with worn pages. Thinking about all the others who have read it before and what it meant to them. I would suggest reading a romantic poem or two with your love. It makes you think and automatically sets a romantic mood.

Romantic Tip: Read poetry together. Talk about the poem after and what you each got from it. 

Now for today's recipe...I send my hubby off with fresh cut veggies every single day for work. I am blessed to have a man that loves his raw veggies! I like to change up his dip varieties so that he doesn't get bored. If he had it his way, he would eat jalapeno ranch dip every single day. More often than not, he comes home and admits that the "new dip" was good. This was one of them. I was quite pleased because it is much healthier than the traditional ranch because there is no mayo in it.
