My "back porch" is my kitchen, my favorite room in the house. Come on in, the coffee is fresh, and I just made a pitcher of sweet tea. The cookies will be out in a minute. I have over 40 years of recipes to share with you, along with my opinion on everything. Oh my, you are right, it is cocktail time. What can I get you? Of course I can make you a Mint Julep! Stop by anytime, something is always cooking, and the back door is never locked.

Bon Appetit, Y'all

Creole Lima Beans

There is nothing really to say about this recipe except it is really, really good. Always gets compliments. I use my frozen Lima's from the garden and they are the larger Forkhook Lima and they work great. If your family likes Lima's this will become a favorite.

5 servings

2 slices bacon
1 medium onion, chopped
1/4 cup green pepper
2 cups canned tomatoes
1 teaspoon sugar
2 cups cooked frozen or fresh Lima beans , drained
Salt, pepper and granulated garlic (House Seasoning) to taste
2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1. Saute the bacon until crisp and remove from the pan. Add the onion and pepper to the fat in the pan and cook until tender but not brown.

2. Add the tomatoes and sugar, and cook about fifteen minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the beans and season with salt, pepper and granulated garlic.

3. Add 2 tablespoons butter and simmer a few minutes longer. Serve hot, sprinkled with the crumbled bacon.


  1. This really sounds interesting. I have only recently started eating Lima beans and this may be a great way of introducing them to someone.

    If you like, I have a Friday's Feast and this month I'm talking about warm foods. Let me know if I can link you up and I'll include this recipe in tomorrow's feast post.

  2. CaJoh thanks for visiting my "Back Porch", link me up. I have a wonderful soup and cornbread for tomorrow, that's nice and warm.

  3. I got you down for the Lima bean recipe, but can include this one once it's posted. I'll keep an eye out and update my page.

    Thanks for participating,
