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!

Calamari Tomato & Caper Salad

I made Giada De Laurentis' Calamari Tomato and Caper salad as the first course for our New Years Eve dinner. It was excellent. Deliciously succulent and so fresh tasting with the lemon and capers.

here to be redirected to the Food Network site and Giada's recipe. One word of caution - make sure to purchase already cleaned calamari. I didn't pay very close attention to the box that I purchased at our grocery store. What should have taken me about 15 minutes to prepare ended up taking me about 2 1/2 hours. Oy!
