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

Applesauce-Oatmeal Muffins

These are very good as a regular muffin, but for some reason they are extra special when baked in tiny muffin pans.

These are great for breakfast/brunch or in the bread basket for supper.

  1. Bev, could I move in with you? You could cook & I'll clean!...:)JP

  2. Love the idea of the mini muffins. Do you know I don't have a mini tin? How could that be? I'll have to remedy that soon. :)

  3. I want to move in too, and I already love Kentucky! Home in the Hollow and I could clean and I would gladly feed the critters. Your treasury of recipes must be marvelous. I had some real treasures from my Mom, my grandmother and my MIL but sadly, in my move home from Maine, my recipe box was left behind (had to leave before another snow storm) and was discarded.

  4. I will try this one, maybe when Nathaniel is home for spring break. Sounds delicious!

  5. I already have the little muffin tins. This just might be a project for tomorrow afternoon.
