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

Grilled T-Bones with Grilled Corn Relish

Happy July 4th to everyone!

If you are not cooking hot dogs and burgers there is a good chance you are grilling steaks. I hope Larry and Edie are not keeping a close inventory of their meat freezer. Use any cut of steak you like, or is on sale. This recipe is all about the relish. With the corn, tomatoes and peppers right from the garden this is a no brainer. This is a recipe from one of my favorite cook books, Bitchin' & Grillin'. Everyone loves this relish so you better double it.

Grilled T-Bones with Grilled Corn Relish
Serves 4

4 T-Bones, at least 1-inch thick
6 cloves garlic crushedd

2 ears corn
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 sweet pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro

In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil and chili powder. Remove husks and silks from the corn. Brush with the lime juice mixture and place on the grill. Grill for 10 to 20 minutes, turning several times. Cool. Cut the kernels from the cob. Combine the corn, tomatoes, sweet pepper, cilantro, onion, salt and pepper. Sprinkle lime juice over it.

  2. How I wish I still had the means to grill, but hard to do in an apartment. Management frowns on that. My local paper today had tons of great grill type recipes. I will copy and send them to you when the heat breaks and it is safe to venture out.
