    Buttermilk biscuits!

    The Joy of Cooking's 'basic rolled biscuits' recipe, buttermilk variation, produces fabulous results every time.

    Mmmmm... hot biscuits.

    Other thoughts -

    -- Pancakes or waffle batter made with buttermilk = extra tasty

    -- Use buttermilk instead of milk or cream when making mashed/creamed potatoes

      and if you've got any leftover...add a little buttermilk to some heavy cream and let it sit out for a couple of days for some creme fraiche.

        Banana cake or muffins... I made this into muffins this weekend and the BF loved them.

              “Ranch” dressing:

              Crushed garlic
              Fresh lime juice
              Chopped fresh herbs: cilantro, or a mix of tarragon and dill
              Mayonnaise (or not, depending on your relationship with fat)

              It's fucking brilliant.

                  Ooh, yes, that too. I made some over the weekend to take to an Easter dinner. It's soooo good.

                  Puree in a blender with a bag of frozen blackberries, a little lemon juice and enough sugar to make it sweet enough (maybe 1/2 cup?), freeze in ice cream freezer.

                  You can also skip the blackberries.

                    A terrific soup:

                    lots of sliced onions
                    good quality chicken broth or stock
                    broccoli rabe, broccoli or combination

                    Saute onions in butter until quite soft - do not brown. Add broth, bring to boil, add vegs, reduce heat, simmer until quite soft. Puree in blender or with immersion blender. Add buttermilk - heat gently.

                      whenever i am faced with leftover buttermilk, i portion out into ziploc freezer bags, in 1-cup portions and freeze. i defrost them when i want to make pancakes - with that and frozen blueberries stashed away, a yummy breakfast or midnight snack is awaiting.
