Buttermilk Blue Cheese Dressing

Zesty, yet earthy this creamy classic dressing is great as a salad dressing, sandwich spread, crudité dip, or chicken wing dip.  Using yogurt instead of mayonnaise will add even more tang to this dressing.  Making your own allows you to experiment with various types of blue cheese.

Buttermilk Crumb Muffins

I love muffins with crumb toppings, although they are a bit more like dessert, so I was looking forward to making this recipe.

Like most of the recipes I’ve made so far from Baking with Julia, this one is straightforward. It’s also fairly simple. I almost wanted to replace the buttermilk with yogurt, because in my experience most baked goods work exceptionally well with this substitution, however I refrained since buttermilk is in the name.  I did use butter instead of shortening.

Crumb Topping

Once you make these a few times you will see that these are a breeze to get together and just as quick to bake.  Perfect for any meal or a snack, and they can be made on a whim.  This is where keeping plain yogurt as a staple comes in handy.
