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!

Pear and Gorgonzola Salad with Candied Walnuts

I love to peruse the aisles at Trader Joe’s – you just never know what delicious treats you’re going to find.  I discovered their Champagne Pear Vinaigrette with Gorgonzola and I thought – YUM!  How delicious would that be on a salad with fresh pears, gorgonzola and candied walnuts?  So, I gave it a try – and it was TOTALLY delicioussuper easy too!
Assortment of Salad Greens
Fresh Pear
Crumbly Gorgonzola
Candied Nuts – I’ve used Walnuts and also Pecans.  Both equally delicious

Toss the salad greens with the vinaigrette.  Place on individual salad plates.  Top with slices of fresh pear and crumbled gorgonzola.  Sprinkle candied nuts over the salad.  Serve and prepare for the accolades from your guests!
