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!

Sloppy Joes - A Classic!

We've all had them... hectic nights where you don't know WHAT to fix for dinner - much less the energy or time to make it. Here is my quick and easy recipe for Sloppy Joes. Enjoy!

Ingredients: (Serves 4)

1 lb of lean ground turkey (If you prefer ground beef - it works just as well)
1/2 red onion, finely chopped
8 oz. can tomato sauce
1/3 cup catsup
1/2 cup bbq sauce
1/2 cup water
1 Tbsp chili powder (this gives the sloppy joes a little spicy kick. Adjust chili powder down if you prefer less spicy)
pinch of salt and pepper
cooking spray
1 tsp olive oil
Large hamburger buns - I use wheat, but your favorite bun or roll will do.

Directions:

Heat a non stick skillet; add cooking spray and olive oil.

Saute onion for 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper.

Spray skillet with cooking spray again. (make sure to remove skillet from heat before spraying) Add turkey and cook until turkey is completely cooked through.

Add tomato sauce, catsup, bbq sauce, and chili powder; cook for several minutes until liquid is combined.

Add water and continue cooking for approx 5 minutes. You want the sauce to be "just sloppy enough" - but not watery.

Spoon sloppy joe mixture onto buns and Enjoy!
