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!

Creamy Soy Dressing

This recipe is from the Cooking Light cookbook; although I’ve adjusted the measurements a bit.  I imagine you could add a drop or two of anchovy paste if you wanted it to be more like a Caesar Salad dressing.  But, I wanted to make it Vegan for my Vegan friend Laura.  So, I stayed true to the ingredients called for in the recipe. 

I served this over a combination of Hearts of Romaine and Red Leaf lettuce and added sun dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts and olives.  It was a HIT !  Everyone loved it – especially Laura.


Juice of whole lemon
4 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon sea salt
4 ounces firm silken tofu
3 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil


Put everything except the olive oil in a food processor; process until smooth. With processor on, slowly pour oil through food chute; process until well blended.
