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!

Chicken Mole - My 100th Post!

I found this recipe on the internet a couple of years ago, and have adjusted it slightly. I understand that normally making a mole sauce takes a very long time. This recipe is surprisingly easy and doesn't really take too terribly long to make.


1 (14 oz.) can tomatos
1 green bell pepper, chopped fine
8 - 15 boneless, skinless chicken thighs - depending upon how many you are serving
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 - 2 chipotle chile in adobo sauce (these can be purchased in a small can at the grocery store. Find them on the Mexican food aisle. There are more in the can than you will need. I individually wrap each remaining chili in saran wrap, place in a baggie and freeze.)
2 teaspoons cumin
1 jalapeno, chopped - remove seeds if you like less spicy
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, chopped
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons cocoa
1 tablespoon sugar


Place all ingredients except cocoa and sugar in large pot. Cover and simmer until chicken is very tender (about an hour). Remove chicken from pot.

Let the sauce mixture cool for a bit and then place into a blender; add cocoa and sugar. Blend until sauce is smooth. Return to pan; add chicken and bring to a simmer for about 5 - 10 minutes to blend flavors.

Serve chicken over rice with plenty of the yummy spicy sauce.
