About this Cook
We are empty nesters living on the beautiful Central Coast of California. We have two dogs, several birds, and a few (LOL!) aquariums. We both LOVE to cook and NEVER repeat a recipe. Once a recipe is finished and we have eaten, the recipe gets tossed! There is just too much out there to try! Cooking is therapy for me. I would rather spend (2) hours in a good grocery store than a mall any day!!!
My favorite things to cook
Anything that includes fresh food. I do not like to use prepared ingredients (can of cream soup, jar of this, can of that, etc.).
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are so not tradition-minded people. My husband's comfort food is tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches. I took those two favorites of his and twisted and turned them into a gourmet meal! He still loves them (and me)!
My cooking triumphs
I once cooked a whole, large turkey marinated in Cherry Grand Mariner for 24 hours and then cooked the normal way...breast down. When done, you could only lift the bones out of the pan...the meat stayed behind! Amazing, flavorful, and ohhhh so tender and juicy!
My cooking tragedies
Putting something (CANNOT RECALL WHAT IT WAS!) in the oven and 15 minutes later finding the (2) cubes of butter still in the microwave (softened them in there) that should have gone in the recipe!

Buttermilk Strawberry Shortcake
Very good recipe! My brother-in-law showed up this afternoon for dinner carrying a full flat of strawberries! I popped on and chose this recipe! Super easy, quick and most yummy! Thanks for posting this recipe. :) Oh, and I love the one review that talks about freezing the butter and then grating it into the flour mixture. GREAT TIP!!

Crab Cake Sauce
I am serving crab cakes tomorrow night at our little NYE gathering. This sauce will be perfect! I did read at least half the reviews and I too made some changes: added garlic & onion powder, a little salt, some dried dill, and a little more lemon juice. I can't wait to taste it tomorrow when all of the flavors come together! It tastes pretty good right now! Thanks for this recipe!

Yum Yum Sauce
Yummy! This is a nice sauce that can be tweaked to suit your taste. I am serving it tomorrow night for a little NYE gathering with bacon wrapped shrimp and pineapple appetizers. I added Sriracha sauce, and pretty much doubled all the dry ingredients. I think everyone will love it! THANK YOU!
