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

Grated Potato Pancakes

This is a very simple easy recipe from Julia's Kitchen Wisdom, copyright 2000. We are so fortunate to have her cook books. She makes everything seem so simple.

For 3 or 4 large-size baking potatoes, serving six. Steam the potatoes 15-20 minutes, until almost but not quite tender. Set aside for several hours, until completely cold. Then peel and rub through the large holes of a hand grater. Toss with a sprinkling of salt and pepper and divide loosely into 6 mounds. Film a frying pan with 1/8-inch of clarified butter, and when butter is hot, spread in 2 or 3 mounds, pressing the potatoes together lightly with a spatula for 4 to 5 minutes. Saute for several minutes, until browned on the bottom, turn with care, and brown the other side. Set aside uncovered and reheat briefly in a 425 degree oven, if necessary.
