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!

Cranberry Relish

Yum! Thanksgiving! Truly the best meal of the year - if you ask me. As I prepare some of the side dishes for our feast this week, I will be sharing the recipes with you. I got this recipe about 15 years ago from a tv show. I sure can't remember which one now... but this recipe has never failed to elicit raves. My dad loved Thanksgiving too, but he was a "jellied cranberry sauce from the can" kinda guy - however, I think he would have really enjoyed this. Happy Turkey Day Everyone!

Ingredients:

1 large orange, peeled and chopped
1 medium green apple, peeled and chopped
½ medium white onion, finely chopped
2 cups whole fresh cranberries (I use the whole 12oz package, which is slightly more than 2cups)
½ c water
½ c sugar
1 – 16 oz can Jellied Cranberry Sauce
½ tsp cinnamon
½ tsp allspice
½ tsp nutmeg

Directions:

1. Place everything, except spices, in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, add spices, and simmer until mixture thickens.

3. Stir occasionally. Should be cooked in approximately 30 minutes.

4. Let cool. Will keep in the fridge for several days.
