Question: Is there a substitute for buttermilk? It's often called for in recipes and is not something I purchase on a regular basis. Answer: There are a couple of equivalents that can be used when buttermilk is called for as a recipe ingredient. One is to combine 1 tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice with enough regular milk to make 1 cup and then let the mixture stand for 5 minutes. Another solution is to add 1 3/4 tablespoons of cream of tartar to 1 cup of regular milk.

Dear SOS: I recently ate at Harris Ranch Restaurant (located off Interstate 5 at the Coalinga exit) and was very impressed with their biscuits, as they reminded me of happy memories of my childhood. I wanted to buy some to take to my sisters, but the restaurant/bakery does not sell biscuits to the public. I would appreciate it if you can obtain the recipe for me. Thank you.

Though they have never disappeared altogether from our national mythology, bumpkins--a fixture of 19th-Century American fiction--appear to be making a comeback. From places too small to be found on maps, these supposedly quaint, unsophisticated folks are the subject of a surprisingly large number of '80s novels--not to mention the stars of the celebrated ad campaign for Bartles & Jaymes wine coolers.

Roy Rogers, the "King of the Cowboys" who sang, smiled and occasionally shot his way into the hearts of multitudes of Little Buckaroos, died Monday. He was 86. Rogers died of congestive heart failure in his Apple Valley home near Victorville, with his wife and co-star Dale Evans and other family members at his side. He had undergone heart surgery in 1977 and 1990 and had been somewhat frail in recent years.

A biscuit need not be confined to the bread basket, content as a humble side. With a bit of creativity, it steps forth and shines at the Easter table. Add chopped fresh strawberries, and you have a dessert-like biscuit that does away with the need for jam. Add chopped fresh herbs and spin the dough into pinwheels for an eye-catcher that stands up to assertive main dishes.
