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!

Caprese Salad

This is SO incredibly easy to make, and your friends will be delightfully impressed with the flavor and presentation. I've not included measurments, as it depends upon how many you are serving. This can as easily be prepared for one person as it can for ten.


Room temperature fresh tomatoes (I like the Campari tomatoes at Costco. They're on the smaller side and they have a fresh vine ripened flavor)

Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

Fresh Basil

Salt & Pepper to taste


Cut the Campari tomatoes into fourths

Cut the Mozzarella cheese into bite size chunks

Toss the cheese and tomatoes together.

Slice the basil into long shreds. (I do this by rolling the basil leaves together and then cutting across the width of them.)

Sprinkle the basil over each individual serving.

Salt and pepper to taste.

Serve immediately.
