Buttermilk Lime Pie

Buttermilk Lime Pie

Buttermilk pie is a favorite of mine around fall and in the winter. The pie is something of a Southern classic, and although I am not from the South, it is definitely a well-liked comfort food dessert to have when the weather starts to cool down. Buttermilk pie is essentially a custard pie made with tangy, buttery buttermilk as the primary dairy component. They’re often ... Read More »

Buttermilk Pie Bars

Buttermilk Pie Bars

Buttermilk pie is great any time of year, but I especially like it during the summer. The pie is easy to put together and has a fresh, tangy flavor to it that goes oh-so-well with all kinds of summer fruits and berries. It is even easier when you put this pie into bar form. As with cheesecake, putting this pie into bar form makes it ... Read More »

It’s too bad because good lemon bars are really delicious. A slightly ... Read More »

A good example of this is baking a chocolate pumpkin pie instead of a more traditional one, or turning the pie into some pumpkin pie bars to make them easy to pass around to a ... Read More »

Buttermilk Spoon Bread

Buttermilk Spoon Bread, in progress

Spoon bread is a classically Southern dish that you probably won’t find just anywhere. The best way to describe it is to say that it is a hybrid of polenta, cornbread and a souffle – and that only partially describes it. A good spoon bread should be light, have an at least slightly custardy center and a crisp top. And it should be soft/tender enough ... Read More »

Buttermilk Pancakes with Nectarines

Plain buttermilk pancakes are probably one of my favorite things to have for a lazy weekend breakfast. They’re reliably good on their own – especially when topped with maple syrup – but are also open to a wide variety of variations. Blueberries and chocolate chips are pretty standard add-ins and since they’re so good, it is easy to fall into a rut. I know because I caught ... Read More »
