    I’ve never been so happy to not have buttermilk. I’d be making these right now, and that wouldn’t be good with how bad my sweet tooth has been. :/ They sure look and sound good!

    I read this somewhere, probably on Pinterest, “You’re not a dog, don’t reward yourself with food.” I totally disagree with that philosophy!
