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

Honey Butter and Vanilla Honey Butter

Don't you just love Honey Butter! This stuff is so good on so many different things. At one time I would buy those little tubs of this at the grocery, until I got a little smarter about not eating preservatives. Keep some of this made in the fridge, set it out to soften and use it on, toast, English Muffins, bagels, muffins, etc. I stir some in my oatmeal and cream of wheat. Let a teaspoon of this melt over the next chicken breast or pork chop you grill. You will find tons of uses for this fabulous easy butter. Spread some on plain old white bread for a quick after school snack for the kids.

I normally double the recipe because I use so much.

Honey Butter
6 servings

1/2 cup of butter softened
