When your recipe calls for sour cream and you don't have it....

Often times while cooking our favorite recipe, we look for an important ingredient in our refrigerator and we find that ingredient missing. Well, if that ingredient happens to be sour cream, you have an alternative:

If you have cottage cheese and hand mixer available, first run the hand mixer on the cottage cheese in a bowl until cottage cheese is smooth (2-3 minutes for 1 cup cottage cheese). After that, add 1-tbs lemon juice and 1/3 cup buttermilk and blend them for around a minute. That's it. You are ready with the sour cream for your favorite recipe!
