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

Carrots and Zucchini

Do you have trouble getting the kids, old and young, to eat their veggies. This might help. Kids seem to love this because of the julienned vegetables and the hint of sweetness from the orange marmalade. Its not like you are trying to get them to eat little round slices of carrot.

This is a great side dish with Viva la Chicken.
