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!

Rosemary & Lemon Pork Stew

I found this recipe on "RecipeZaar". It sounded savory and different, so I thought I would give it a try. It truly is DELICIOUS. It is a Portuguese recipe, according to the website. I've adjusted the recipe slightly, and found it easy to prepare. We so enjoyed this dish that we had to go back for seconds. There's just a little bit left in the fridge - I need to hide it from hubby so that I can have it for my lunch today!!


1 1/2 lbs boneless pork, cut into 1 inch cubes
2 tablespoons
1/2 teaspoon
1/2 teaspoon
black pepper
1 teaspoon
Olive Oil for frying the pork

4 ounces trimmed and sliced
portabella mushrooms
1 ½ white onions, sliced lengthwise
1 ½ cup
dry white wine – I used chardonnay
1/2 teaspoon
dried basil
3/4 teaspoon
ground coriander
3/4 teaspoon
dried rosemary, crushed
Cornstarch and water for thickening stew
Juice of one lemon
Parsley or cilantro (to garnish)

Serve over cooked white rice.


Toss the pork cubes in flour, salt, pepper and paprika; in a large saucepan, brown them (in batches) in the olive oil. Remove to a plate covered in paper towels to absorb extra olive oil.

Add portabella mushrooms and sliced onions to the pan and sauté for 5 minutes.

Stir in the wine, basil, coriander and rosemary, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan.

Return the pork to the pan; cover stew and cook over low heat for an hour.

Uncover stew. Mix approximately 1 Tbls cornstarch with some cold water; add to stew and cook until liquid thickens up. If more cornstarch and water is needed, do so.

Just before serving, stir in the fresh lemon juice; garnish with fresh parsley or cilantro. Serve over white rice.
