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!

Ramos Gin Fizz

When we go to New Orleans we always have the Jazz Brunch at Court of Two Sisters.  Heavenly!  I had never enjoyed a Ramos Fizz before having brunch here – although my Mom loved them.  This morning the New Orleans “bug” hit me and I had a strong need to enjoy something NOLA related…. One Ramos Gin Fizz coming up!
1 ½ oz good gin
1 dash (3 to 4 drops) orange flower water
1 large egg white
2 oz half & half
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon simple syrup
1 cup ice cubes
2 tablespoons (1 ounce) club soda
In large cocktail shaker, combine gin, orange blossom water, egg white, half-and-half, lemon juice, lime juice, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously for 25 seconds – or use an emersion blender. Add ice and shake for 30 seconds more.
Place three or four ice cubes into a glass - strain mixture into it.  Slowly pour soda water down inside edge of shaker to loosen remaining froth. Gently ease soda water/froth mix onto drink and serve.
