Over the weekend (okay every weekend) I stopped down at our local farmers market, here in West Bend Wisconsin and visited with a good friend of mine, Starla, who creates and sells her own gourmet seasoning and dip mixes.
And I thought to share some of my favorites with you, so you would have the chance to share them with others, whether you need a dip mix for a party or are looking for a gift for a friend. Her dips are sure to please!
Not only are these dip mixes great tasting but there also easy to prepare. Directions for each dip are printed right on the back of the package. Most dips can be made by combining 1 package of seasoning with 1 1/3 cup sour cream(or Buttermilk) and 2/3 cup Mayonnaise, or for the sweet dips you can combine 1 package of seasoning with 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese and 1 (8 ounce) container of whipped topping. And these aren't just for dips, you can add them to almost anything!
The Downtown West Bend Farmers' Market, brought to you by the Downtown West Bend Association, features over 65 vendors and is one of the largest markets in Southeastern Wisconsin.

My 3 Favorite Dips
There is a number of other dip mixes that are just as pleasing, such as their bestseller 'Grandma's Garden', 'Cheesy Bacon Ranch' and 'Glorious Garlic' to name a few. So be sure to visit ilovedip.com or visit the store at shop.ilovedip.com
