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

Feel Good Friday

Before we even start with this weeks "Feel Good Friday", do you have your flag out on display?Let's not forget the reason for this Memorial Day Holiday. Please say an extra prayer for our service men and women presently serving and also those we have lost as well as their families. If not for the sacrifices of these fine folks we would not be having a "Feel Good Friday.

For those who didn't read my "Feel Good Friday" last week all I can say is what a difference a few days make. This week has been Chamber of Commerce perfect, temperatures in the 80's and more sunshine than I've seen in months. I've even hung sheets on the clothesline. Oh that wonderful smell when you jump in bed.

It really is kinda nice having a big brother with great timing. He stopped by yesterday just in time to help put the dust ruffle back of the bed. That mattress gets a little heavy. Thanks Larry. He's not kidding me he really stopped by for a meatloaf sandwich.

Got new kitchen stuff this week that always make me happy, cast iron skillet, cast iron corn stick pan, and the big bonus, a Cusinart Mandoline Slicer. The slicer is a little tricky, I cut myself twice just getting it out of the box and unwrapping the beast. I guess they were serious with all the "Be Very Careful" warnings all over the box. I also received two new cook books from my friend Lucy in Savannah, Ga., one of them written by "Chef Dirt". I'll be sharing some of the recipes on the blog later. This has been a great week.

I'm making sauerkraut tomorrow using my new mandoline and cabbage fresh out of my friend David's garden. Hopefully without any pieces of my fingers included. This is such an easy recipe please try it.

Wishing y'all a wonderful safe holiday. See you next week.


  1. Oh, you are going to LOVE that slicer.

  2. Oh yes, no finger pieces. Yum sauerkraut. Enjoy it.

  3. You got a slicer! OMG! That is some serious equipment and please, be careful. Now I am craving a sandwich with sliced meat :-)

    After I read your blog I almost always eat something!!!

  4. I'd be a different person if it was this sunny all the time!

    Have a great weekend!

  5. I love, love, sauerkraut. Never tried it with fingers:)
