Ranchify (add ranch dressing to food)

To “ranchify” food is to add ranch dressing to it. The term “ranchify” was popularized during Hidden Valley Original Ranch’s BzzAgent marketing campaign, September 6, 2012-November 15, 2012.

The term “ranchize” also means to add ranch dressing to food, but “ranchize” has had almost no use at all outside of its “Word of the Day” on November 16, 2012 on the Food Republic blog.

Excited to Ranchify everything in sight. I’m getting Hidden Valley Original Ranch products for #GotItFree! http://u.bzz.com/7ktqj

Hidden Valley Ranch.. yummmm!
Thank you to BzzAgent for sending me a free bottle of salad dressing and seasoning packets!

Before moving to Texas I had no idea about how much Southerners love to ranchify! It wasn’t until recently that I was hooked, using ranch instead of ketchup for french fries, and my kid loves the ranch with his nuggets.

So yesterday we layed out some steaks we had got on sale last week and let me just tell you Momma is an amazing cook! smile We had steaks, macaroni and cheese, and baked potatoes.  Yes, a simple dinner but I thought “Why not ranchify it?” It was delicious!  We ranchified everything we ate last night!!!
I didn’t use any ranch on my potato, I just put butter, but my husband did - so he had a very “Ranchified” meal!

Opened the box
I received this Bzz box earlier this month and finally am sitting down to write a post on the subject.
My BzzKit included:
• The Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® BzzGuide
• A bottle of Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® dressing
• Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing and Seasoning Mix
• A recipe card to use before, during, and after Ranchify-ing conversations
• A smart shopping list notepad to stick on fridge
• A binder clip to pull it all together

I will post again with the results of my Ranchify-ing everything in sight. wink
