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

Doves and Noodles

Do you have a bird hunter in your house or in my case a friend that hunts doves. My friend Tommy, is probably one of the laziest people I have every known when it comes to any type of physical exercise. He is an avid golfer only if carts are available. He also uses his cart for dove hunting. Lazy! However he does pay someone to clean the doves and he brings them to me ready to cook. What a guy!

Other than a simple pan roasting this is one of my favorite recipes for dove. This is straight from Joy of Cooking.
