A GOOD shortcake can make up for shortcomings. It can, for instance, transform a bunch of so-so strawberries into one of the world's most appealing desserts, strawberry shortcake. Homemade shortcake has several clear advantages over the stuff you find in the stores. First of all, the homemade variety is not too sweet. In the proper strawberry shortcake scenario, the berries take the lead and the cake is complementary, providing supportive, background flavor notes. If the shortcake has too much sugar, it competes with the sweet berries, not to mention also tussling with the whipped cream, which is the required topping.

Alexander's Tavern in Fells Point has some primo outdoor seating alongside the Broadway market, a great spot to enjoy an icy cold beverage of any variety. While maybe a Bourbon served neat might not make sense when it's 100 degrees out and climbing, we're in the need for something a bit smoother - something fruity, something freshly squeezed. Ah yes, the time-tested crush is the only thing that will do. And while you're at it, try something new and different in the form of Alexander's Strawberry Shortcake Crush.

THE WARM days of late spring are here. The hot days of summer are just ahead. So naturally thoughts turn to ... a cool strawberry sundae, steamed crabs bathed in Old Bay seasoning, and roasted sweet corn fresh off the grill. Our favorite memories this time of year are often tied to food. Maybe it's the magic of eating outdoors. Perhaps it's the lure of delectable local products. Whatever the appeal, you can literally eat your way across the state for the next three months. From Leonardtown to Taneytown, from Grasonville to Sykesville, there is an abundance of festivals planned around some of our favorite local foods.

After more than 20 years in the restaurant business, Don Payne is still serving his mother's classic, old-fashioned strawberry shortcake."Mom would mix up a shortcake batter and put it in the oven to bake just as we were sitting down to dinner," he recalls."

Most fruits and vegetables come into season quietly, on cat's feet. One day you look and there is asparagus. Or you're out shopping and realize artichokes are finally coming down in price.The exception to this is strawberries. Strawberries come into season accompanied by waving flags and blaring brass bands.Although you can find something called a strawberry in the market year-round these days, trucked in from Mexico or flown in from Chile, at this time of year, it pays to stop at a farmers market and pick up the real thing.

Lewnes' Steakhouse is the sort of restaurant that can stir up extreme emotions.There's the intense yearning as you wait for your food while the smells of delicious dishes at other tables swirl mercilessly around you, joy as you bite into chunks of tender filet mignon and then abysmal sadness when the meal is over and you're too stuffed to order that second strawberry shortcake.My sister and I arrived at Lewnes' late on a chilly weeknight to a short wait for a nonsmoking table. We passed time at the restaurant's small bar, where a slightly inebriated man nursing a drink proclaimed himself a regular and animatedly emoted about Lewnes' wonderful steaks, crab balls, crab cakes everything.

As traditional as apple pie in autumn, strawberry shortcake is an early summertime classic. In the American Midwest and New England, the ripening of the local strawberries in late May and June calls for a celebration: biscuit shortcake -- not angel food or sponge cake -- and cream to go with the berries. Heartlanders generally make their shortcake richer and sweeter than regular biscuits; New Englanders tend to spare the sugar to accent the berries' natural sweetness.Serve this warm biscuit shortcake lavished with strawberries and cream for breakfast or dessert.

If any restaurant has inherited Haussner's mantle as the quintessential Old Baltimore eating place, it would have to be the Sunset, a Glen Burnie fixture since the '60s. It even has a gilt-framed reclining nude over the bar. Ah, but there's much more. There isn't quite the profusion of objets d'art and period paintings that Haussner's was famous for, or a giant ball of string, but there is art -- including a portrait of the owners, of course -- and Tiffany-style lamps and etched glass.
