Happy Friday, party people. I’m pumped that you’re here today because I have a fancy new YouTube series to pimp: JUST THE TIP.

Every week (for the foreseeable future), I’ll be sharing quick kitchen tips in the hope of answering some of your most frequently asked questions and generally upping your domestic game. I know how busy and important you are, so each of these videos is 1 minute or less—a little nugget of knowledge, if you will, to be consumed during a free moment in your day. Boom.

In this week’s episode, I’m showing you how to make your own buttermilk with just two simple ingredients. You can thank me the next time you decide to make buttermilk pancakes on a whim. Or extra dank fried chicken.

If you’re super amped about making your own buttermilk after watching this video, but you’re not really sure what to do with it, I’ve obviously got you covered. Please see the recipes below for inspiration.

“Chicken Club” Salad with Kale, Avocado and Dijon-Buttermilk Dressing.
Crispy Baked Chicken Tenders with Sriracha Honey Mustard.
BA’s Best Buttermilk Pancakes from Bon Appétit.
Buttermilk Biscuits from Smitten Kitchen.
Crispy Buttermilk Fried Chicken from Food & Wine.
Roasted Strawberry Buttermilk Cake from Joy the Baker.
Buttermilk Doughnuts from Williams-Sonoma.

And now, WATCH! (Too bossy?)

p.s. If you’d like to be reminded of when I’m dropping knowledge bombs, you can subscribe to my YouTube channel here. I love you.

p.p.s. If you have anything you’d like me to cover on #JustTheTip, leave me a comment here or on YouTube, and I’ll get on it. Because I love you.
