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

No Corned Beef Recipe From My Back Porch

Why would I waste time posting a Corned Beef Recipe when there must be at least 50 out there, all basically the same. However, the one I'm using this year I got from Seriously Good. No, I'm not corning my own beef, but I do like the idea of cooking it in the oven. I swear I'd ask Kevin Weeks to marry me if I were younger, or he was older. The man can cook! Plus, he's funny.

If all this is just too overwhelming use the recipe on the back of the corned beef package, I did for years and it was just fine.

I will be giving you a fabulous Irish Soda Bread recipe and a Shepard's Pie. You do know that Shepard's Pie is made with lamb and a mashed potato topping and a Meat Pie or Cornish Pie is made with beef and a pastry crust topping. Well, you know we Americans can screw up anything, even food.

See you Monday. Don't forget Saints and Scriptures Sunday tomorrow. Also, don't forget to set your clocks ahead tonight.

  1. I made the corned beef from the recipe on the package - did it in the oven as you suggested. WONDERFUL! Now I just have to keep the guys from eating all of it so I can have leftovers to make Corned Beef Hash Patties!
