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!

Dirty Martini

This may not be a good thing - but I've discovered Martini's. I love them "dirty" - which means adding olive juice to them. Make sure to use a "top shelf" gin - or vodka if you prefer. Drinking the alcohol like this requires that you use the best.

Ingredients: (Makes 2)

3 oz Gin - I use Bombay or Bombay Sapphire (if you prefer, you can use vodka)
Splash of Dry Vermouth
2 Tbls olive juice
2 oz water
6 pimento stuffed green olives


Freeze the martini glasses

Place a splash of vermouth in each frozen glass. Swirl the vermouth around the glass and pour into a cocktail shaker filled with ice.

Add the olive juice, water and gin to the cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously.

Strain into the chilled martini glasses. Garnish with three olives on a cocktail pick.
