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

Curried Butter Beans

This is so easy and so Southern, you will love it. I use the butter beans (lima beans) that I froze last summer, but store bought are fine. These go with anything.

Curried Butter Beans
6 servings
print recipe

1 (1-pound) package frozen butter beans
9 slices bacon
1 chopped onion
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 tablespoons dry white wine (not cooking wine)
1 (14.5-ounce) can mushroom soup

Cook the butter beans in advance according to package directions.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Lightly fry the bacon and brown the onion and curry powder in the bacon grease.

Mix the butter beans along with the other ingredients except the bacon, and bake 10-15 minutes until hot. Place the bacon on top and serve.


  1. I just told Joe last week that we haven't had lima beans in forever...sounds like a plan to me...:)JP

  2. It is chilly here today in Florida so I think I will make these..YUMMY
