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!

Smoked Salmon Spread/Dip

I found this recipe in an appetizer book.  Sounded yummy so I decided to make it for our monthly “dinner and a movie” date with our good friends.  Mmm Mmm good doesn’t quite describe the deliciousness of this spread.  I served it with sliced cucumbers – which was delicious.  But, you could serve with an assortment of crudité or crackers or toasts.  This was easy and quick to make – and received RAVE reviews!
8 oz. Smoked Salmon, chopped
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
½ cup sour cream (or plain yogurt)
¼ cup mayonnaise
1 – 2 Tablespoons fresh dill – or I used ¾ teaspoon dried
¼ cup minced fresh flat-leaf parsley
¼ cup minced green onions – I only used the green parts
Salt, Pepper and Fresh Lemon Juice to taste
Place the salmon, cream cheese, sour cream and mayonnaise in the bowl of a food processor.  Mix until thoroughly blended.
Add the dill, flat leaf parsley, green onions, salt, pepper and lemon juice – pulse to combine.  Taste for seasoning – adjust if needed.
Place in serving dish, cover and put in fridge.  Let sit for 1 or more hours until serving.  This can be made earlier in the day – or even the night before – serving.  Enjoy!
