In our house, making deliciously homemade and creamy recipes together is like a weekly routine. Besides being a fantastic bonding experience with our kids, it’s also an awesome little tradition because it means we get delicious food. One of our very favourite ingredients to use when we have this big family cooking or baking sessions is buttermilk. We just can’t help loving essentially every single thing we’ve ever used it in! We know how to make all kinds of things with buttermilk at this point, but that doesn’t mean we’re not always still on the lookout for delicious looking new recipes we’ve never tried before.
