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!

Baked Bacon

OK, seriously!!! How have I NOT known about this??  A friend posted a photo a month or so back – and I’ve started seeing people posting this on Pinterest!  Who knew??? Baking Bacon is so incredibly easy, faster than cooking on the stove stop – if you’re doing a lot of bacon, and the clean-up is pretty much non-existent.  No more greasy stove top, no more burns from grease splatters, no more standing over the skillet and endlessly turning strips of bacon so that they cook evenly.  AND, I think the cooked strips of bacon turn out flatter and crispier when baked!  Amazing…  Baked Bacon…. Where have you been all my life?
Aluminum foil
Preheat oven to 350.
Line a jelly roll pan (a cookie sheet with edges) with aluminum foil.
Place the strips of bacon on the sheet, put in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes. 
You don’t need to turn the strips over.  Test for doneness.  You don’t want the bacon to be super crisp in the oven, because bacon becomes crisper/harder as it cools.
Remove the strips of bacon to a paper towel lined dish.
Viola!  Delicious bacon in less time and with less mess and fuss!
