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.

Henry Bain Sauce

Most folks associate this sauce with Kentucky Derby parties. I have no idea why because it is fabulous any time you have beef, chicken or pork. If you are having Standing Rib Roast or Beef Tenderloin for your Christmas dinner give this simple and easy sauce a try. You will not be disappointed.

This has long been a favorite of all Kentuckians. Henry Bain, who during his 40 year career rose to headwaiter at the Pendennis Club which was established in 1881, in Louisville Ky. It was while he was headwaiter that he created his famous sauce.

For decades the Pendennis Club membership was only open to white males; although that policy has long changed. However the image of an elite, restricted club still is common in the minds of Louisvillians. The Pendennis Club is located on Muhammad Ali Blvd, Louisville, Ky., beautiful old building.

Once you try it you will not be without it in your house. Also makes a great marinade for chicken or pork. Add a 1/4 cup to your next meatloaf or hamburger patties. Stir some into your Kentucky Burgoo just before serving. You will find endless uses for this fabulous sauce.
