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!

Grandma Julia's Pumpkin Pie

My Grandma Julia could bake pies like no one else. She shared her recipes with my Mom who passed them on to me. It wouldn't be Thanksgiving without her Pumpkin Pie, nor Christmas without the Pecan. She had a unique way of cutting a pie too; two cuts! One pie for four people! Mmm... Great memories!

Directions for two pies:

In a large bowl, mix 2/3 of large can of pumpkin and 6 eggs. Beat well.

Add to that 1 1/2 c. sugar. Beat again.

Mix into that 1/2 tsp. ginger, 1/2 level tsp. cloves, 1/2 heaping tsp. allspice. Add 3 cups of milk and mix again. Put this mixture into 2 - 9" pie shells.

Bake at 400°for 15 min. Then turn down to 325° for 45 min. Test with a knife.
