Welcome to my site!

Welcome to my site!
I'm Cindy, and I love to cook! And, I love to eat... hence the size of my rear end! I come from a long line of cooks. My great great Grandmother was a cook in the original Harvey Houses. My grandmother Julia was an awesome cook, and my mom was incredible. I owe my skills to these great women. Especially my Mom who said this to me about making gravy... "Cindy Lynn, wallpaper paste is wallpaper paste & gravy is gravy. Never the two shall meet!" Shall we say my first experience at making gravy left a little bit to be desired! Thank the high heavens my cooking skills have improved since then! Enjoy!

Regrets... I've had a few....

Kitchen Disasters! We've all had them. Like the time I made my very special Lemon Cake for a party... and when I turned it out of the pan half the cake (the top half) stayed stuck like glue in the pan. Fun! Or, the time I made a meal for my friend Jamie after she had surgery. I cooked a fantastic Indian Chicken dish. Placed it into a bag for a my "seal a meal". Sealed it - picked it up - and the bottom fell out of the bag. Chicken Curry - all over the floor, sliding the down the cabinets, stuck in the carpet. We won't discuss my language that night. Yes, it happens to the best of us. But, those are the times you have to just pick yourself up - dust yourself off - and start all over again. (And, if you're asking yourself what Jamie got for a meal that night - I don't remember... but it wasn't the Chicken Curry a la carpet & cabinet!)

Oh, yes. Similar to the feelings I had when I was a child making my first pb cookies. I read 1/2 cup baking soda instead of 1/2 tsp. They tasted horrible. I do not think I attempted pb cookies for a long time after that.
