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

Derby Spread

This is from the archives, but some things never change. How wonderful that Derby Day is just around the corner, which means Spring really is here. Everyone in Kentucky gets Derby fever. It really doesn't matter if your entertaining is formal or casual, one appetizers you will always find on the menu is Derby Spread. When served on beaten biscuits or on hoe cakes, it is as close to the spirit of traditional Kentucky as we can get in an appetizer.

Derby Spread
serves lots
printed version

1 pound unsalted butter
1 pound good Roquefort or bleu cheese
1/2 cup good bourbon - you will need the rest for Mint Juleps

Cream butter and cheese; add bourbon slowly. Shape into a ball. Refrigerate 24 hours. Serve with crackers, beaten biscuits, or tiny hoe cakes.

How easy was that!
