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!

Nana's Molasses Cookies

This recipe belonged to my hubby’s Nana. I love Molasses cookies and these are EXCELLENT! And, I might add, very easy to make!

Makes about 3 dozen cookies

¾ cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup sugar
¼ cup molasses
1 egg
2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. cloves
½ tsp ginger


Cream together the butter, sugar, molasses and egg. Sift the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.

Add half of the dry ingredients to the wet; mix well. Repeat with remaining dry ingredients. Place in fridge for about 10 minutes.

Form into 1” balls and roll in granulated sugar.

Bake at 375 for 12 minutes on an ungreased cookie sheet. Don’t overcook. They are best when they are a little chewy!

Remove to a wire rack and cool.
