A year ago, I wrote a post about our dog, who was suffering from autoimmune hemolytic anemia. At one point during her disease, she had stopped eating, and I thought to give her some buttermilk. She lapped it right up, then began eating again. Unfortunately, a few weeks later, she still succumbed to the disease,Continue reading “Should you give your dog buttermilk?”
Disclaimer: Okay, I’ll never really know if buttermilk saved her life or if it’s just a coincidence, but if you ask me, it helped. And it makes a catchy title. I’ll give the real credit to our vet and only partial credit to buttermilk. First a little background. Last week our dog, Zinneke, was diagnosedContinue reading “How I May Have Saved My Dog’s Life with Buttermilk”
Recently I stumbled upon this concoction that has become our favorite desert. It is incredibly easy to make and tastes delicious. I know many people don’t think buttermilk is edible if it’s not baked in something, but I use it in all kinds of things, such as adding it to a cream sauce for aContinue reading “Peach Frozen Buttermilk”

What a long, fun, and a little crazy trip it’s been. I started blogging mostly as a dare to myself. I’mContinue reading “My First Decade as Occasional Blogger”
Tonight, I wanted a change of pace for our weekly homemade pizza. I usually make the standard red sauce, though occasionally, I’ll make a white sauce with flour, but tonight, I wanted something easier and with less carbs. Enter sun-dried tomatoes and buttermilk. Followers of this blog probably know I love cooking with buttermilk. It’sContinue reading “Simple White Sauce for Pizza”
Today, I want to take a little trip down my own geek highway. Every now and then (maybe more often than I’m willing to admit), I check the stats on my blog. It’s one of the features I like about WordPress, by the way. I can see who’s reading what and sometimes that affects whatContinue reading “The Life of a Blog Post”
