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!

Italian Sausage and Peppers

Mmm Mmm Good! Italian Sausage and Peppers are just the yummiest of treats. And, they're so easy to make! You can eat them on a nice crusty roll for a delicious Sausage and Pepper sandwich - or you could enjoy them with some pasta - or the way we eat them most often is completely on their own. They are so full of flavor and perfect as a meal or snack. Enjoy!


10 – 12 mild Italian Sausage, cut into bite size pieces (approx 6 pieces per sausage)
5 sweet peppers, seeded and chunky chopped. I like to use a combination of red, green and yellow peppers.
2 white onions, chunky chopped
4 cloves of garlic, chopped
15 oz. can of tomato sauce


Place the sausage, peppers, onions and garlic in a big roasting pan. Put the pan in a 350 oven. Bake for 1 hour, stirring after 30 minutes.

Add the can of tomato sauce, and one can of water. Stir and place back in oven for another hour, stirring after 30 minutes.

The sausage should be tender, and the peppers, onions and tomato sauce should cook down to make a nice sauce. I usually think they are done anywhere from 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Note: If you prefer to use Turkey Italian Sausage, it works just fine and is equally as delicious. However, because there is less fat in the turkey sausage, you may want to drizzle with a little olive oil before placing in the oven.

My family does that recipe without the tomatoes. On a crusty Italian bread, there's nothing better. There's a place in Portland on Sandy called Michael's that has perfected this sandwich. They top it with beef au jous., unbelievable.
