- WHO'S THAT GIRL: A higher education obsessed foodie who is documenting her life in the kitchen. I love to cook delicious, gourmet-style foods for those I love and always welcome a challenge in the kitchen. With that challenge comes an impromptu nature. I tend to avoid following recipes to the exact, so you are not likely to find very many posted here. Being that I am a Libra and am learning to be free in the kitchen, the story always goes, "A pinch of this and a smattering of that!" Thank you for visiting -- and happy reading!

Buttermilk White Sauce With Pasta
Call it part of the simplicity series.
After a long day at work, then a volunteer orientation, I was exhausted. Literally, my eyelids were burning.
So I pulled together most of what I had in the fridge for this simple and tasty pasta dish.
It was a return to buttermilk.
All told, I used: Onions, red bell pepper, clams, broccoli, buttermilk, butter, salt, pepper, olive oil, noodles and a tablespoon of flour.
I merely sautéed the onions and peppers while slowly cooking the clams in the buttermilk with a bit of flour. I cooked the noodles alone. I tossed the broccoli in with the rest of the veggies a few minutes before adding some butter and the white sauce to the mix.
Served over the noodles, this was a nice, light, delicious meal. And I got to use the buttermilk from this week’s challenge all over again.
Life is good.
