Once you’re done making your pancakes or baked goods, don’t let that extra buttermilk go sour. Whip it into homemade ranch dressing that tastes way better than the bottled stuff, like this version from Five Heart Home. With a big salad on its way, you can feel good about whatever baked goods you bought the buttermilk for in the first place.
All you needed was a dollop of sour cream for taco Tuesday, and now you’re stuck with a big ol’ container of it. Instead of just using a little here and there well past expiration, whip up a batch of Blueberry Sour Cream Pancakes from Cooking Classy. Like the classic buttermilk, sour cream makes your breakfast favorite even fluffier. You can also head straight to dessert with this Old-Fashioned Sour Cream Crumb Cake from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Make sure you don’t store sour cream or these 16 foods in the freezer.
