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

Good Bye 2010 - Hello 2011

What a wonderful year this has been. Six hundred plus post later and I'm still loving this blogging thing. It is amazing the great people I've met. Some have become dear dear friends. I'm not going to start mentioning names because I'll forget someone and then I'll be in trouble. It's not just the other bloggers either, sometimes it's the people who leave comments regularly that I love dearly.

I'm not making resolutions, never do, but maybe I'll have a few goals in mind for the coming year. You can count on the fact that one of them will NOT be to vacuum and dust more. Another will NOT be to lose weigh, I'm skinny as a fence post, maybe to gain a few pounds. Actually I'm pretty happy with me just the way I am. The only problem with that is, I'm the only one that feels that way. Maybe I'll try keeping my opinions to myself, nope, that's no fun. I think I'll just keep blogging and causing trouble.

Eat your Collards Greens, Hoppin' John or Black-Eyed Peas for a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.

Bring on 2011, I'm ready!



  1. That's a lot of posts, Beverly!!! Obviously, you're far more advanced that I am. So, do what you do yourself and like it! P.S. I gave up on the vacuuming & dusting daily because that's NOT what life is about. Happy New Year!!..:)JP
