Buttermilk Substitute

Homemade Buttermilk in 5 Minutes

Homemade Buttermilk

No need to buy buttermilk for just one recipe. There are few people that actually enjoy drinking buttermilk. I would always buy a half gallon of buttermilk when a recipe called for it. Then I would end up throwing half or more away.

That was before I found out about this wonderful buttermilk substitution! This really works! I was so excited about it, I have to share!

You need:
  • milk (whole works best, but you can use whatever you have)
  • 1 tbsp, white vinegar

Pour 1 tbsp of vinegar in a measuring cup. Then add milk up to the 1 cup line. Now leave it for five minutes. Then add to your recipe. If your recipe calls for more than a cup, that's OK, just use your 1 cup of homemade buttermilk and use plain milk for the remaining about.

People have also stated that lemon juice can be used instead of white vinegar to make buttermilk. I personally have not tried it, but I think it would work due to the acid in the lemon.

Chili Buns - Cheap Meal for Family

Chili Buns

A cheap meal that feeds a big family. Formally considered a Southern dish, Chili Buns is actually a common "go-to" meal in many areas of the US. I have a "Wednesday Night" recipe list that I refer to often. These are meals that my mother would fix on Wednesday night when there was not much time between work and church. Chili Buns is at the top of that list. So now I make them for my family and each of my children have their own way of making them.
You cannot go wrong with Chili Buns. It is the best with homemade chili, but it is just as satisfying with chili from a can as well. Give some condiment options, or not...that's up to you. I offer whats on hand.
1-2 cans of Chili (or homemade chili if you have made a pot)
1 pack of hot dog buns (or hamburger buns, or sliced bread)
Optional Condiments/Toppings:
Cheese (sliced or shredded - whatever you have)
Like I said. you can't go wrong here. Build it however you want, or just go plain. I have a teen that adds pickles on the side.
