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

Mom's Cabbage

We never had a name for this dish. Mom made it all the time and we called it "that cabbage stuff that Mom makes". Every time I wanted to make this I had to call her and say "tell me again how to made the cabbage stuff". One day she wrote it down and mailed it to me, I still have it. Mom's not here any longer so I'm very thankful to have some of her recipes.

This will serve 4, if I'm not there. Normally I double the amounts because it is even better left over. Don't stand and measure everything. If it looks right it probably is. Enjoy!

Mom's Cabbage

print recipe

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a heavy skillet
1/2 cup chopped celery
2 cups shredded or coarse chopped cabbage
1/2 cup green peppers
1 cup diced tomatoes, fresh or canned
3/4 teaspoon salt (better yet, House Seasoning)
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1/4 cup chopped onion

Cover and cook over medium-low heat about 10-12 minutes. Do not overcook.
When this is finished add another tablespoon butter, just because I said so.

  1. Oh my gosh Beverly, that sounds divine!! I love cabbage in any shape or form. I think I can even make this! Thanks so much for stopping by today and you definitely have a deal. Like I tell Jaz, if I could only live on a street in the middle of both your houses. I'd be in heaven. I never did much cooking in my younger years. Working way too many jobs to make ends meet at the time. But now life is much different and better in every way. I actually have all the time in the world to cook but what I really need is someone here directing me. Blessings!
