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 - I'm So Spoiled

Yesterday I'm thinking, what can I write about for Feel Good Friday? Then guess what comes in the mail! The Bread Lover's Bread Machine Cookbook. My sweet, wonderful niece Angie, The Jammie Girl has sent me a new cookbook. I'm so excited I don't know what to make first. Over 300 recipes. The book was written by Beth Hensperger, who also wrote The Bread Bible. If you own a bread maker or are thinking about owning one you need this book. Unbelievable! It even has recipes for making jams, preserves, and chutneys in the bread machine.

I know not everyone gets as excited as I do about a new recipe or cookbook, but that's just the way I am. If you had as many vegetables and fruits to preserve every year as I do you would be looking for new ideas too. I hate to see food wasted. Plus, my food never gets recalled.

I'm starting to feel bad now because my friend David still has green tomatoes and I have not one place left to store them, freeze them or can them, and thank you God we have a freeze warning tonight.

Life is good, enjoy it. See you tomorrow, probably for a green tomato recipe.


  1. They promised a freeze here, but they lied. I know I shouldn't pray for cold weather, but darnit -- my allergies are still giving me fits. Hope you get/got your freeze. Look forward to the green tomato recipe. :)

  2. I'm so glad you like the book :)

  3. Cookbooks are so much fun! Enjoy! I want some bread!

  4. I love making homemade bread. It tastes the best. I also got 2 new cookbooks at EMily's book fair and I have been pouring over them.

    Have a wonderful weekend :-)

  5. Cook books always excite me too Beverly! Any person who truly loves to experiment with food loves a good full color photo spread of new recipes to look over and try out! Interesting fact about creating something besides bread in the bread maker, you need to share some more about that some time in a post!

    This Friday's Feel Good at my place

    jackie >_<

  6. I've always wanted a bread maker, I used to work for a frozen bread dough company and we had fresh baked sample loaves to bring home everyday. Except for a few people that is the one thing I miss most about not working there.

    Have a great week!!
