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.

Kentucky Carrot Casserole

Please at least take the time to read the recipe. Don't say yuck, carrots, right away. Children actually love this if you don't tell them it's carrots, men as well.

This is really very good and makes a very colorful dish for any meal. It would be wonderful for the holidays.

Okay maybe I wouldn't have made it yesterday if my brother, Larry, had not brought me fresh carrots, plus a bushel of green beans and pounds of boiling onions. And I thought I was going to have a day off! Someone he was working with a the annual Lion's Club Bluegrass Fair had given him all this stuff. Being the true children of our father, if it's free we're taking it.

  2. Once, when I was a very young girl, my mom didn't cook enough carrots for a company dinner and I didn't get any. Ever since then, I've had a mild fear of running out of carrots, and would NEVER say yuck about carrots! Your recipe looks easy and delicious, and I've never heard of anything like it.
