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!

Lemon-Chive Roasted Vegetables

This recipe is in the Cooking Light 2009 cookbook. I’ve adapted it slightly. The recipe called for fingerling potatoes – which were not available at the market the day I went. So I used a combination of red and white potatoes. This was really good and a great lemony side dish for the Chimichurri covered steak that we had that night. (See recipe in the post below for Chimichurri Sauce)


3 lbs of assorted potatoes – quartered (I used red and white – but you could use Yukon gold or fingerling as well.)
1 lb baby carrots
2 sweet onions, cut into 8 wedges each
Olive oil
Salt & Pepper
Fresh chives chopped, use an amount to your liking – I used about ¼ cup
Grated lemon rind from one lemon
Juice of one lemon


Preheat oven to 425.

Combine the potatoes, carrots, onions with a drizzle of olive oil. Toss to coat. Arrange vegetables in a single layer on a jelly roll pan that was coated with cooking spray. Season with salt & pepper.

Bake at 425 for approximately 45 minutes, or until potatoes are tender. Turn after 20 minutes.

Remove the jellyroll pan from the oven; sprinkle the chives over the top of the vegetables. I grated the lemon zest right over the vegetables, and then squeezed the juice of the lemon over all.

Place everything into a large bowl and toss to combine. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if necessary.

This really added to the previous recipe (Chimichurri Sauce)below. It is so good that it could stand on its own. Awesome and very healthy.
