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!

Fresh Raspberry & Whipped Cream Cake

My friend Kathy wanted something light and different for her birthday cake this year. I’ve made her my Fresh Strawberry and Whipped Cream Cake on a few occasions. Click here for recipe. We talked and I said, what about raspberries? She liked the idea… so a new recipe was born. This was light and wonderfully delicious!


1 white cake mix (I like Duncan Hines), baked in a 9 x 13” pan, according to package directions
1 jar of Smuckers, Seedless Red Raspberry Jam
2 packages of red raspberries
3 cups whipping cream
Vanilla and Sugar for whipping cream


Bake the cake mix according to package directions, in a 9 x 13” pan.

Allow the cake to cool and then cut the cake in half to make two 6 1/2” x 9” pieces.

Cut each piece into two layers. A little trick to cut layers in a cake is to use waxed dental floss. Wrap the dental floss around the cake, cross the ends, and pull. Easy cake layer!

Warm some of the jam in the microwave – just enough to make it easy to spread. Spread it between the layers of the cake.

Whip the cream with the vanilla and sugar – to your taste. Spread it on one of the 6 ½” x 9” pieces of cake. Layer some of the fresh raspberries in the cream. Top with some more of the whipped cream. Place the other 6 ½ “ x 9” piece of cake on top. Cover all with a healthy amount of whipped cream.

Top with remaining fresh raspberries.

Place in fridge for 30 – 60 minutes before serving.

Note: if you prefer – you could bake round layers. I just opted to do something a little different this time.
