our kitchen has 2 switches which had dimmers installed. I opened the box and unhooked everything, now don't know how to wire the panel switches. The problem is there is a total of 4 blacks, 4 white, and 4 ground.
only 1 black has power
there's a black,white,ground on one end, a black,white,ground on the other end, then wire with 2 black, 2 white, 2 grounds
anyone help me with this setup?

This is a stab in the dark. Connect the powered black to both switches. Connect all the whites together. Connect a black to the other side of either switch. Restore power. Operate switch. If it turns light in, leave it. Connect another black to a switch. If it operates a light, leave it. The black that does not turn on a light gets connected to the power black.
