So. Two links that I loved this week. The one on outliers - hysterical. And so true. It's scary.

And the buttermilk recipe repository. Perfect timing seeing as how I have, oh 3 1/2 cups of buttermilk sitting in my fridge left over from some red velvet cupcakes. That I previously had no idea what to do with. But now have 41 ideas. Splendid.
