  4. I am just a big fan of this blog and seldom write but I wanted to tell Amy that most stores now carry powdered buttermilk in the baking section and it works great!

    I believe you can even make a homemade Ranch typy dressing with it.

    Cheers,

  5. Hi Amy,
    In recipes that call for buttermilk you can make your own by adding a Tbsp of vinegar of lemon juice to a cup of milk and let it sit for a few minutes, although I still prefer the real thing ... but this works. You can also use plain yogurt, maybe dilute it some with milk if its a very firm type.
    On a side note: buttermilk lasts way beyond the date on the carton... therefore it is so nice to alwasy have on hand in the fridge. It adds a nice texture to muffins and pancakes.

  8. I work at a nursing home and on Friday mornings in August we do our own version of a "Farmers Market". Our staff and residents families bring in garden produce and baked goods to sell and our residents make crafts. This recipe looked easy and delicious so it met the criteria of something I could bake for our Farmers Market after a long day at work. The last batch just came out of the oven. I hope I have some left to take to the Farmer's Market in the morning!!!

    I love your blog and read it daily. I'm a Mennonite Girl myself having grown up in eastern Pennsylvania and am now living in Ohio. My mother loved to cook and passed that passion on to me. "God is on His throne and all is right with the world" when I'm in my kitchen cooking.

  10. Brenda ... I don't - but you could probably go on-line to sites such as http://www.ehow.com/how_4773974_nutrition-label-recipe.html - You would have to type in the recipe.
