What foods can I make with ~4 cups of homemade ranch dressing?

Last night I made 4 cups of ranch dressing out of 2 cups of buttermilk, 2 cups of sour cream, and 2 packets of Hidden Valley dressing mix. It'll probably spoil within a week, so unless I start eating it in bowls like soup I need ways to use it up besides condiment use. I think it would work fine as the liquid in my trusty buttermilk biscuit recipe, and be great in mashed potatoes. What else could I make with it? [more inside]

Allium-free vegetarian dishes at restaurants in the Boston area?

I'm vegetarian and have a hereditary sensitivity to alliums (onion, garlic, leeks, etc.) Unfortunately I can't identify onion/garlic by taste, so when I go out to eat with my boyfriend I mostly resign myself to feeling sick for the next 24 hours or so. What are some restaurants in the Boston area that serve food I might be able to eat safely? [more inside]

Office snack food I can order from Amazon

I get super hungry at work. I have a fast metabolism and I can feel my blood sugar getting low and then I NEED FOOD NOW and end up spending money at the cafeteria or vending machine, which is too much sugar and too much money. I ride a motorcycle in so it's not convenient for me to physically bring stuff in--I want to set up weekly/monthly auto-renewed deliveries of snacks from Amazon that aren't too sugary or too expensive.

Taking a client out to lunch in Beautiful Downtown Burbank

Just got a new gig, and want to take some potential clients to a nice lunch after a facility tour. The new gig is in Burbank, and in my experience cuisine in Burbank is limited to Frontier Wok, chain restaurants and Ikea meatballs. Please help me with suggestions of good Burbank and Burbank-adjacent restaurants for client lunches. Bonus points for healthy places where fitness-oriented clients can feel at home.
