About this Cook
I am 51 years young, born in Indonesia, moved to The Netherlands when I was 6 mths old, moved to So. Calif. when I was 4 years old and reimmigrated to The Netherlands in 1990 with my 2 daughters now 28 and 22 years old. Been divorced twice, about to get married for the third (and last time!). Work full-time but I try to bake and try out new recipes as often as I can.

My cooking tragedies
My cooking and baking I don't have any problems with but I once had to bake a special decorated cake for a party and on my way out to my car I tripped and yup...cake all over the street.

Cake Mixes from Scratch and Variations
I hate doing this but after I caught both my mother and my oldest daughter giving each other funny looks I had to ask them what was the matter with the cake. "Nothing" they both replied, "nothing but a glass of water or anything wet could help wash down this dry cake". They did say it in a nice way but I was shocked! Then my husband said he agreed but was afraid to say anything to me! Utter mortification! I followed the recipe as written and read all the reviews from other members so I that I couldn't go wrong. Sorry, but I will definitely not be making this cake again.

Strawberry Shortcut Cake
Wow! This is so great! I had this recipe years ago and "loaned" this recipe to a friend and never got it back. I used to make this all the time and when it's cold it's even better tasting! Thank you so much!
