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

Recipes on Packages and Cans

Have you ever thought about how much money food companies have spent to perfect the recipes they put on their packages and cans? Millions! Stop and think about it for a minute. If you want the best Oatmeal Cookie recipe, doesn't going to the Quaker Oatmeal box make sense? It's the best recipe I've found. Did you realize that more people make the pumpkin pie recipe on the back of the Libby's Pure Pumpkin can than buy Mrs. Smith's Frozen Pumpkin Pie. What about all the cookie and candy recipes on the packages of chocolate. Fabulous! These are just a few.

Some of our favorite recipes growing up were on the labels of Campbell's Soup cans, still are, Tuna Noodle Casserole, Smothered Pork Chops, etc. Rachel Ray may think she invented 30 minute meals, but they have been around longer than she has.

We need to get back to the basics a little bit more. Everyone needs a good amount of butter and bacon grease in their diet, not every day, but treat yourself now and then. When I want comfort food I need mashed potatoes, fried chicken, smothered green beans, fried corn, chicken and dumplings, pinto beans and some cornbread. Yes, maybe all in one meal.

The only point I'm trying to make is look on your packages and cans for great recipes. Most of them are very quick and easy, and enjoy a really sinful meal, just because you can.

Any other useless information you need please leave a comment and I'll try to help. Now I'm starving and I think I'll make a protein shake.
