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

The Best Thanksgiving Ever

I have just returned from the most wonderful Thanksgiving I have had since returning to Kentucky. My brother, Larry, and Edie have only been in their new home for about 2weeks and everything is already perfect. I don't know how she did it, plus all the Christmas decoration and tree. She said Larry was a huge help. Right away I knew someone had taken my brother and left a droid is his place.

Her table was covered with her mothers beautiful lace tablecloth and she used her mom's silver and china. Beautiful! I have already posted the menu earlier and the food was out of this world. Edie had made a Pumpkin Cheese Cake, Pecan Pie and Lemon Chess Pie. She has promised all the recipes

Another reason I knew my "real" brother was not there is because he deep fried the turkey to perfection and carved it like a chef. I'm really worried.

The Durham Family were special guest, Gary, Ruth and their son Rich. What a wonderful family. If you think I can talk! This lady needs her own blog. They even remembered my dad. That's always good for lots of laughs.

If you are ever in doubt about an appetizer for a holiday gathering make The Uber Cake from October Farm.It really is a fabulous dessert, however everyone wanted "just a little bite" before dinner, so half the cake was gone before we even ate. Thank goodness for Edie's desserts. I have a strange family.

My "real" brother returned just before I was ready to leave because I had to beg for the turkey carcass to make Turkey Bone Gumbo tomorrow.

I hope everyone had as great a Thanksgiving as I did.

Thank you Larry and Edie.


  1. We had a great Thanksgiving at my mom-in-laws. Cannot wait for the new recipes. Glad your holiday was so good.

  2. It was a wonderful day, wasn't it? The Uber Cake put the other desserts to shame. It is no wonder that there were only a few crumbs left. Chocolate, carmel and peanuts...sinful! Although food is considered the highlight of Thanksgiving I will have to say that the good company and laughter really made the day. I also want to thank Randy for bring fabulous wine to accompany our feast! Thank you Randy!
    Thank you Beverly for all your support and love!

  3. So happy you had a lovely time. We did also.

  4. it sounds like you had a grand time! sorry the saints took the game. the cowboys have nothing to feel sorry about though....they played heroically for that second half.
