How to… Do things.

Buttermilk Substitute

I like to show you how to do things… like how to make buttermilk if you’re fresh out.

I also like to give you things.

This post will combine these two wonders.

At the top of the page you’ll notice a new page header called November Giveaway.  That’s the page you should be glued to every single day this month.  That’s the page that will change every day with all sorts of prizes and such.  Visit.  Often.

Now!  Let me show you how I show you how to make things.

Ps.  I’m glad you’re here.

How to make the good stuff:  brown sugar.
