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

My Favorite Book

It's Thursday, it's time for Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. I could not resist writing about my favorite book. In my opinion this should be mandatory reading for every young lady. I have lost count of how many times I have read this and watched the movie. Books are not written like this anymore, a little romance, sex, humor, history, culture, and will stir every emotion we have.

Prissy: Lawzy, we got to have a doctor. I don't know nothin' bout birthin' babies.

Scarlett: I can shoot straight, if I don't have to shoot too far.

Rhett Butler: I can't go all my life waiting to catch you between husbands.

Scarlett: Great balls of fire. Don't bother me anymore, and don't call me sugar.

Rhett Butler: No, I don't think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That what's wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

Scarlet: I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow.

Scarlet: Rhett, Rhett...Rhett, if you go, where shall I go" What shall I do"
Rhett Butler: Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn.

Of course it's Gone with the Wind. It could be nothing less. After 50 years it is still my favorite.


  1. Mammy (before the picnic): "What gentlemen says and they thinks is two different things."
    Rhett (at the ball in Atlanta): "With enough courage you can do without a reputation."

  2. I read it once when I was younger and it was wonderful. I loved the non-happy ending. Did you ever read the follow up written by a different author. Not so great.

    Stopping by from Mama Kat's.

  3. okay. That makes me want to read it :) *puts the book on her list that's growing incredibly long with that writer's challenge prompt*

  4. You know, I've been thinking I need to re-read that. I first found it years ago and loved, loved, loved every stinking word.
