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!

Ginger Pear Turkey Sausage

These are incredible!  The combination of pear, scallions, jalapeno, cilantro and ginger root is so fresh and amazing!  This will make 4 servings (8 patties total) for only about 190 calories per serving.  Not only are they a great healthy alternative to regular breakfast sausage – they are DELICIOUS!  You might even consider making these as burger patties.  I think they would be remarkable!


1 lb lean ground turkey breast
1/2 cup diced ripe pear
4 scallions, bulbs removed, white and green parts finely chopped
1 to 2 jalapeño peppers, seeded and chopped
1/4 cup packed cilantro leaves, chopped
1 tbsp grated fresh ginger root
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
3 tsp safflower oil, divided


In a medium bowl, combine turkey, pear, scallions, jalapeño, cilantro, ginger, salt, pepper flakes and 1 1/2 tsp oil. Shape mixture into 8 patties (each about 2 1/2 inches in diameter).
Heat remaining 1 1/2 tsp oil in a large nonstick skillet on medium. Add patties and cook for 4 minutes per side or until lightly golden and no longer pink in center.
