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!

Some foods just taste of home. This is one of them. Warm Peach Crisp served over rich vanilla ice cream. What a great way to end a wonderful meal on a warm summer evening. Yum!

2. Combine peaches, sugar, cinnamon and corn starch in 8 x 8 glass baking dish.

4. Cook for 12 minutes in middle of oven.

Ingredients for topping:

1/3 c. oats
1/3 c. flour
1/3 c. brown sugar

3 Tbls cold butter, cut into small chunks.

1. Combine above ingredients in food processor fitted with blade. Pulse food processor on and off until mixture is "mealy".

Well, Cindy I've got everything ready -- except for the peaches. Olson's has promised the next crop would be ready on August 5th, so I plan to be there bright and early!

I know it's going to taste très délicieux!
