I have an interesting idea for an interactive application as an addition to your website. The application would be compatible with other recipe websites as well. I am a busy mother of three and a full time student. We have ballgames, church, homework, ect. and supper is usually something that is thrown together. I have often thought how wonderful it would be to not worry about what is for supper, or if I have everything to prepare a certain meal. Like most people, when it comes time to grocery shop I am on a budget and often wonder what I will be able to afford for the week.
So I thought of a solution, an application that would create a menu, generate a grocery list, and calculate my weekly grocery bill on average for me. It would be wonderful to add the application to favorite recipe sites and cure all busy mothers’ problems. The website would offer an interactive application in which a person could choose from a variety of weekly menus, of course using as many of your brand items as possible, or could actually enter in dinner choices of their own. Of course, this could work with breakfast and lunch as well, but many families are only home in the afternoon. The menus suggested could be based on income, health benefits, calories, ect. Once a menu is configured the application would generate a grocery list based on the menu choices. The interactive portion of the application would allow for the consumer to check or uncheck items that they already have and then the application could take prices from weekly sales ads and calculate an average weekly grocery bill for the items needed. Of course you could go further and allow consumers to enter additional items as well adding to the grocery list and calculating those into the bill. Then the consumer could print out the menu with recipes for each meal and their personally generated grocery list.
This would bring in additional revenue for the company offering the convenience due to the use of so many of your products. It would be a very useful and unique service offered on your website. I have researched and checked out many online sites and none have the conveniences of the application I have suggested. I found many sites that offer recipes and meal plans. I have found many other sites that offer the capability of looking at lists of thousands of items and checking what a consumer would like to purchase and then the consumer could print off the generated list, but nothing that provides all the services I have mentioned in one place.
package your ranch dressing in many sizes. Single, double & quad. Then you would have the right size for any occassion.
Spread Ranch dressing on bread. Add meat and cheese. Then fry on both sides to make a Ranch Panini
Why not put recipes on your bottles. Make sure there are a lot of different ideas
I'm not sure if this has already been done, but what about putting already-made Hidden Valley Ranch dressing in packets like the ketchup packets and hot sauce packets (Taco Bell)? Everytime I go to a restaurant, I have to get the salad dressing on the side and it's usually way too much!
This way a couple of packets would be just right to put on my salad without wasting the rest!
When I did food sampling for Suray Promotions,Senoir Citizens would always tell me ,let the manufacturer know they need to reduce the salt and fat in their product.Salt And fat in products cause blood pressure to rise,heart attacks and strokes. Since the children, &teens are eating pizza and chicken nuggets dipped in Hidden Valley Ranch. I would like to suggest that you come out with a new and improved Hidden Valley Ranch. Senoir Citizens want to use your product but choose one with less fat and salt. We only need to look around and see all the over weight people. I suggest a nutritionist review Hidden Valley Ranch and lower the salt and reduce the fat content.
How about making a SUPER Chunky blue cheese dressing for those of us that LOVE blue cheese
..I would make a delish sandwich made from2slices rye bread,3slices medium .rare deli roast beef,a slice of sweet red peppers slices provolone,half handful of baby spinach with stems removed, enough ranch dressing to apply after sandwich is grilled and cheese is melted.I like the looks of grilled bread so I've been making them for awhile.I suggest you toast the bread before grilling like a pannie sandwich. Place cheese one slice each next to bread, meat next, spinach ,red pepper,same applies to the other slice .This will make the vegetables in the center,because of their water content donot place next to bread when making sandwich. Becareful when turning over that it doesn't fall apart.
produce a blue cheese/ranch mix with 35% chunky blue cheese and 65% ranch. Very good dressing for salads, chicken wings, vegetables, chips and meat dipping sauce. Try it you will love it.
My favorite experiment was mixing light Hidden Valley Ranch with a roasted red pepper and roasted garlic puree to make a dreamy dip for veggies.
