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 Meat Loaf - Individual Size

Here is another meatloaf recipe.  If you’re familiar with Indian food they are reminiscent of the filling in Samosas.  We are definitely “hooked” on these individual meatloaves... I've made an Italian version - Click HERE for that recipe, and a full size Cajun version - click HERE.  I like to make these on Sunday so they are ready for dinner during the week.  They warm up beautifully in the microwave – they’re fabulous right out of the oven!


Step 1:
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 baking potato, cut into small bite-sized cubes
Water to keep potatoes from sticking and to help them cook
1 teaspoon salt

Step 2:
1 lb ground beef
½ lb ground pork
2 eggs, whisked
1 tablespoon curry powder

Step 3:
1 tablespoon olive oil
½ white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
½ cup milk
1 tablespoon curry powder
½ teaspoon salt

Step 4:
Small can tomato sauce
1 tablespoon curry powder


Step 1:  Heat a non-stick skillet.  Add olive oil.  Sprinkle cumin seeds and cook until they begin to sizzle. 

Add cubed potatoes and cook for a few minutes; add salt.  Add water as needed to keep the potatoes from sticking.  Remove potatoes to a plate to cool.

Step 2: Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Whisk the eggs in a large bowl with 1 tablespoon of curry powder.  Add the beef & pork and combine.

Step 3: Drizzle 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the skillet in which the potatoes were cooked.  Heat and add the onions and garlic.  While sautéing add the 1 tablespoon curry powder and ½ teaspoon salt.  Sauté until translucent; add milk and mix thoroughly.  Put the onion/milk mixture into a blender and blend until smooth.  Add to the meat mixture along with the cooked potatoes and combine well.

Step 4: Form the meat into individual loaves.  This should make approximately 6 loaves, depending on size.  Place the loaves on a rimmed baking sheet that has been covered in foil.  This helps with clean up. 

Place the baking sheet in the oven for 30 minutes.  Mix the tomato sauce with 1 tablespoon curry powder.  After the loaves have baked for 30 minutes, remove from the oven.  Spread some of the tomato sauce mixture on each.  Return to the oven and bake for an additional 20 -30 minutes.
