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

July 4th Suggestions

Is the flag flying? Is the sweet tea made? You are almost ready for the 4th of July. Just a few more things to do and it's time to eat and watch the fireworks.

There is certainly nothing wrong with steaks, chicken, hot dogs or burgers on the grill, but if you want a nice change the following would make anyone happy.

Frogmore Stew or Low-Country Boil, same thing, with Tartar Sauce, Cocktail Sauce and Potato Sauce
Hot Slaw
Mile High-Turtle Ice Cream Pie

How Southern can we go!


  1. The Hot Slaw sounds scrumptious! Have a safe one Bev...enjoy!...:)JP

  2. frogmore stew!!! why haven't i made it yet this year! it is one of my absolute favorite things! i lovemaking it for large groups and just dump it out on newspapers when it is ready and everyone just serves themselves!
