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 - I'm Going To Make It One Regardless

I've whined about the cold and the weather for two Fridays now. I'm over it. The weather will not get the best of me.

It really isn't that long until spring, 51 days. I'm trying to decide where to put my herb garden, and what to put in it. The tomato plants are going to be increased by half again. I'm almost out of frozen and canned tomatoes and it's not even February. I need more. Making twice as much of Scotty's Basic Tomato Sauce and Roasted Tomato and Black Bean Soup. That stuff should have a patent.

Remember Edie's Sweet Muffin Mix that was posted on Wednesday of this week? Bake them in mini-muffin tins and little hands just love these.

I received my new tart pan from Williams-Sonoma yesterday. I won a 25.00 gift certificate on Dining With Debbie a few weeks ago. Thank you again Debbie. I haven't decided what I'll use it for first. You know I'll let you know.

Thanks for visiting my world today, of herb gardens, good food, prizes and 75 degree weather, in my mind. While you're visiting stop by The Girl Next Door Grows Up for more Feel Good Friday.


  1. What about the bed right there in the circle of the drive for the herbs? Would that be closest? or were you thinking about making an entirely new bed? Fresh tomatoes and basil sound SOOOO good right now!

  2. My sweet Jammie Girl, I didn't even think about that, it is perfect and already has good soil. What would I do without you. Thanks.

  3. Funny, seems everyone, including me, is posting about Spring gardening plans. I think it's just what we need to get us through this snowy winter.

    PS -- I'll post more recipes if you post some pictures of your finished cooking and baking foods. Dealio? :)

  4. Thanks for the link! I think we are all a bit burnt out on winter already.

  5. This is why I love my job. We're working on the April/May issues already. Spring really is coming up quickly. January is almost over!
