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

Happy Birthday Edie

Have you ever met someone and right away you just knew they were good people? That's the way Edie is. Everyone loves her. We have only known each other for a little less than a year, but I feel like I've known her all my life.

No, she is not the type to always agree with everything I say or do. Actually she rarely does. She is a fabulous cook, her house is always spotless, I hate that. I guarantee weeds will not have the nerve to try and grow in her garden this year. Yes, she has started all her vegetables and herbs from seed and they are beautiful and ready to plant.

If you call to go shopping or something she can be ready in 20 minutes and look fabulous. Even their dog, Harper is loved by everyone. He is so sweet.

Always has a smile and can cry watching a TV commercial. Holds up the line at the grocery chatting with the cashier.

I'm so glad she is finally getting older, she is 50 today, AARP age. I have no idea why I love her so much, she only makes me look bad.

Wishing you at least 50 more birthdays my friend.
