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!

Spicy Pickled Green Beans

I've been patiently waiting to post this recipe, because I wanted to taste the green beans to be sure they were as wonderful as they looked, but after canning them - you have to wait a month

I must confess, I only waited three weeks.  Curiosity got the better of me, and I thought they would be delicious with the Bloody Mary's we are enjoying as I type this.  I can confirm - they are FAB-U-LOUS!

The recipe can be found here:

I slightly changed the recipe in the following ways:

Add a pinch of red pepper flakes to each jar
Instead of fresh dill, add 1/2 tsp dried dill weed to each jar - along with a dill head

Other than the above alterations - I followed the instructions on the website. 

FYI - My friend and I canned the beans together.  We got 12 pounds of beans - they made 19 pint jars.
