My buttermilk woes are no more

I was so excited that I found this I just had to share with you! I just know there is someone out there that is going to find this useful, I know it!

Many of my friends out there love to mess around in the kitchen. I do, and 90% of the time I'm a spur of the moment cook. Due to these usually unorganized attempts, I find that I come across the problem of missing ingredients frequently! I don't know about you, but I have a problem keeping those wacky little ingredients on hand - like fresh ginger, heavy whipping cream, lemons and buttermilk to name a few. I just don't use them enough to make them staple purchases for my cupboards. So a lot of recipes slip by because of some silly little ingredient I'm too lazy to trek into town for.

Well, I can mark one of those pesky little ingredients off my list!


I was THRILLED when Todd pointed out this container of dry buttermilk to me at the store. I'd never seen anything like it before! Once opened it will need to be refrigerated, but their website states it will stay good for years to come (which I'm assuming would be around the expiration date on the bottom of the container - mine being 5/2015). I was able to purchase a 12oz. canister of it for $3.85 at Kroger. I did look for some online after I got home and found several others, though I think this one is the better economic choice.
The product result was the same as regular buttermilk as far as we could tell. I mean, the delicious pumpkin waffles we made with it were as yummy as can be.

This was an amazing find for me though - just in time for the holidays too! Todd promised me when he gets home from work he's going to dig all my recipe books out of the storage shed - can't wait to start picking out recipes! Hope you guys won't mind too much if I go on and on about food for a bit. I lost a lot a weight over the last couple of months and I'm trying to put it back on again before it starts snowing. LOL! Need to build up my winter coat!

Anyone else have any baking finds that they've stumbled across and found indispensible in the kitchen? I'd love to hear about them!

'til next time...
