i've been feeling morning love lately...

we have been indulging in some lovely breakfasts as of late. i love cold weather, it makes us focus on indoor things and at this house that means good food. the next few days will be posts of some things we have been eating to enjoy the time together in the house~

Buttermilk Syrup

1 cube butter
3/4 c sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 t baking soda
1 t vanilla

over medium heat melt butter, sugar and buttermilk in a saucepan. i like to let it all dissolve and get a little bubbly.
remove from heat and add vanilla and soda. keep stirring until incorporated. it will foam and froth up when you do this, so be sure to call all the kids around for the "magic" show.

serve hot.

or you can store for 2 weeks in the fridge

this is so savory. it doesn't rock your world with sweetness, rather accents a fruit or a dollop of cream. i will also post more on how we have eaten this lately.

I love buttermilk syrup. I made it not too long ago but used coconut extract instead of vanilla to make coconut syrup. I think I saw that idea on Sisters Cafe. I love waffles or pancakes with macadamia nuts and coconut syrup. Mmmm.
