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

OMG! It's Feel Good Friday Again

If time doesn't slow down I'm going to be 75 by next Thursday. What a great week but moving to fast. I've had 3 mental health days this week. That doesn't mean I've sat on my butt and read Gone With the Wind again, it means I've gotten so many things done that I haven't taken the time to do lately. Yes, I've pissed people off and said no to several that I don't normally do that to, but sometimes it takes what it takes. Why is it that people think you have nothing to do because you don't have a "job"?

I have sparkly clean freezers ready for fresh veggies, fruits and berries. Clean windows I can actually see out in the yard and fields. A really good start on my canning with sauerkraut and beets , blueberries and raspberries in the freezer. My tan is even coming along from running to the garden and walking the puppies. Speaking of Annie and Mazzy, they are also sparkly clean.

The vacuum is in the middle of the floor and the Get Well Cards are still out, my little office looks like I've been robbed. I'll get to all that stuff when I have time. I have Pickled Beets to make today because David said that beets were the harvest of the day. I'm posting the recipe for The Best Damned Fried Banana Peppers Ever this week, please stop by and see me.

Before you do that stop by Feel Good Friday and see what is making other people "feel good" this week.


  1. My first time on your blog, found you from Girl Next Door. Something about you is familiar; I'm guessng that you remind me of some people that I love that live far away. Your positive attitude and playful verbiage engage me, I'll be back!

  2. Fiorella, when I lived in Ormond Beach, Fl. there was a wonderful little boutique, Fior's, on Granada Ave. that would not be you by chance would it. I loved that shop and the wonderful lady, Fior, that owned it. Let me know!

  3. I love this post!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. My birthday is next Thursday too! Only 49 though...shhhh, I try to forget!!!

    Have a GREAT BIRTHDAY!!!!!


  5. Looks like you were one busy lady! Good for you! Mental health days...great idea!

  6. There is nothing like some good 'ole cleaning to make me feel good!!! What a fun week you had.

    Also, I think I work harder now being a mom than I ever did when I had a job. And I worked hard then too!
