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!

Grilled Asparagus & Grilled Onions

This is unbelievably simple - and outstandingly delicious!

Trim and wash the asparagus; place in a shallow dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle salt and pepper over the asparagus. Toss to coat with oil and seasoning. Place on BBQ grill and cook for about 4 - 5 minutes, depending upon how "done" you like your asparagus.

Clean a sweet onion and cut into 1/2" rounds. Place onion rounds on cookie sheet. Drizzle one side with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. Place oiled side down on grill; brush a little oil on top side, and brush with balsamic vinegar. Turn once, after about 4 -5 minutes; brush other side with balsamic vinegar. If you turn the onions too many times, they begin to fall apart.

Note: The Proud Italian Cook (click here to visit her fabulous blog) suggests running wooden skewers through the onions to keep them together. I didn't have any wooden skewers the day we did this, tried metal skewers - but they kept breaking through the onion.

These are a succulent addition to any meal. We've had asparagus prepared this way four times in the past week! Delish!
