Buttermilk Pancakes

I think these are the best pancakes I have ever eaten... No, seriously!! They are so good. After a brief conversation at work over what made the weird taste in the pancakes we were eating at the moment I decided that I would test a couple of recipes. So I went to Tasty Kitchen on Pioneer Woman's web site and found something I wanted to work with. To be honest, I haven't tried the second recipe yet, because these are soooooooo good! Ingredients: 1 cup all purpose flour 4 tsp sugar 1 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp baking soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup milk 1 egg 2 tbsp melted butter 1 tsp lemon juice Directions: Mix dry ingredient in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, mix wet ingredients. Heat skillet or gridle over medium high heat. Once heated, mix wet and dry ingredients together until just combined.

Buttermilk Pie

First, I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful compliments on this pie. The recipe was given to me by a dear friend a loooooong time ago. It is a simple recipe to make, and apparently, ahem… a forgiving recipe. Even with the help of a 2 year old!
We will just pretend, with all that help… that I didn’t originally forget to add the sugar… wonder why the filling didn’t fill two pie shells… put the pies in the oven… only to realize about three minutes into the cooking time what I had done… pull the pies out… spill filling all over the inside of the door and in the bottom of my oven… pour the filling back in the bowl… add the sugar… wash the cookie sheet… refill the pie shells… and back into the oven, to end up with some very pretty and tasty pies…. see, a very forgiving recipe! And, you totally don’t have to go thru all of that. In fact, it's much easier if you remember all of the ingredients the first time :o)

Ingredients:
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 stick butter, melted
2 Tbsp corn…
