Even with 15 years of marriage under our belts, we still have some invariables. I remember the first time I told Mauri that when a recipe calls for buttermilk I simply use vinegar to sour regular milk. He was appalled! So when I read my young friend Tina’s blogpost about making buttermilk pancakes I had to send him the link. (Note our comments on her post.)
Saturday is our pancake day, and you can be sure Mauri’s variable pancake recipe invariably includes real buttermilk, which has become a staple in the Macy fridge—despite my well-practiced workaround.
