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 - What A Great Week!

My week started out with a bang! Have you been ask for your autograph? I was on Monday. I'm in my least favorite store on earth and this little girl, about 5-6, came up to me and ask for my autograph. I was so shocked I ask why. She said her Nanna said I was famous because my picture was on the computer. This happened in Paris, okay so it was Paris, Ky. Her Nanna happened to be a friend of a friend who checks out my blog from time to time. How fun was that. I sure hope I don't have to hire a bodyguard. I was really grateful I didn't have my jammies on under my coat like I did when the picture was taken.

Now you know how much I love October Farm with Jaz and Teddy and she has the most fabulous give-aways. I won her Amish Basket from last week and received it on Tuesday. This sweet person is on vacation and is dragging this big box around with her to mail to the lucky winner. Me.

This basket is stuffed full of great stuff; 2 books on the Amish, a green leaf shaped dish, I'm using it as a spoon rest, hot buttered rum mix, maple candy,rocky road fudge, apple caramel crunch coffee, pumpkin jellies,pumpkin candle, pumpkin poop (corn candy), plus something else but I ate it and can't remember.

I'm going to read all the other Feel Good Friday post on The Girl Next Door Grows Up and see if anyone else has had as great a week as I have. I bet not!
