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!

Indian Spiced Nuts

I posted a spiced nut recipe from Giada De Laurentis last summer. It’s really good! Click HERE to compare it to this recipe. They are both excellent – but I think today’s recipe is slightly more sweet and the other more savory.


1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon kosher salt
¼ teaspoon ground cardamom (heaping)
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
½ cup almonds
½ cup hazelnuts
½ cup cashews


Preheat oven to 350.

Combine first 8 ingredients in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. Stir until blended. Add nuts; toss to coat.

Spread nuts evenly on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper – or if you have a silpat, you can use that.

Bake at 350 for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Let cool completely (that’s the hardest part!) before serving.
