Re: Extra ingredients, or help I have buttermilk.

The first recipe that comes up after a quick google is using it in a glaze for salmon, which sounds delicious and AWESOME.

Re: The CGNU Dumples Thread

Thank you! The picture got a good (envious) response on Facebook, and it also got a good response from the person I made the dumplings for.

I think that was the time I tried something new and put shiitake mushrooms in the filling. Oh. My. God.
