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!

Salsa Chicken

Beyond “chicken” I didn’t have a clue what I was going to make for dinner tonight. We enjoy chicken for dinner, but grilling it tends to get a bit boring. I was in a “tex-mex” kind of mood tonight, and came up with this creation. I didn’t do a lot of measuring when I made it. You can season the salsa to your taste.


4 boneless skinless chicken breasts, rinsed and patted dry
1 onion, chopped
1 bunch cilantro, chopped
2 cans diced tomatoes
1 garlic clove, minced

Olive Oil
Chili Powder
Salt and Pepper
Cayenne Pepper


Heat a large non-stick skillet that has a lid; drizzle some olive oil into the pan.

Sprinkle some chili powder on one side of the chicken breasts. Place the breasts in the skillet seasoned side down. Sprinkle chili powder on the other side. Cook the chicken breasts for about 4 minutes on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add the onion and garlic to the pan. Add a little more olive oil if needed. When onion is translucent, add cilantro and the two cans of tomatoes. Sprinkle a little cayenne into the salsa to taste. Bring to boil, return the chicken breasts to the pan and cover. Cook for another five minutes, until chicken breasts are cooked through.

Serve chicken breasts with some of the salsa on top. Salt and Pepper to taste.
