Notes

While shopping at Costco, a free cookbook was offered. Of course, I had to have it. "In The Kitchen The Costco Way" is full of wonderful looking recipes. I changed this one ever so slightly because I used butter instead of shortening and buttermilk instead of milk and vinegar (sour milk = 1 cup milk+1 Tbsp. vinegar). It would be nice served with a dollop of whipped cream on top.
