Welcome to my site!

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!

Peach Almond Jam

OK... When I tell you this is the MOST wonderful jam I've ever had, I'm not kidding.  The perfect combination of sweet summery peaches, sugar and almond.  The tip?  Add 1 teaspoon of almond extract after the jam has finished cooking.  AMAZING!

I found the recipe on SimplyCanning.com.  Make sure to use ripe peaches.  I bought some this morning and if I had let them sit for a few days it would have been easier to peel them after their "hot water bath".  The site will also link you to many other wonderful canning recipes.  The next one I want to try is the Spiced Peach Jam.  I'll definitely buy my peaches a few days before I'm going to make the jam.  Peeling the peaches will be a breeze!
