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

Wonderful Waffles

How long has it been since you made waffles. I mean real waffles, not Bisquick, or pop in the toaster waffles. To be honest I haven't made them in a few years myself. This is a wonderful old recipe that I did use. I loved it because they were light and tender and the batter could be made the night before.

These also make a wonderful base for Turkey/Chicken Hash.

Wonderful Waffles
Makes 6
print recipe

4 tablespoons butter
2 eggs, separated
1 cup flour
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup half-and-half
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream butter. Add well-beaten egg yolks and beat 2 minutes. Add flour, milk and cream slowly. Add salt to egg whites, beat until stiff and fold into yolk mixture gently with a rubber spatula. Bake on a hot waffle iron until golden. Batter will keep a day or two in refrigerator. Top with powdered sugar and serve with strawberries, bacon and maple syrup for a wonderful breakfast.


  1. How very weird! I was just thinking how good a real waffle would be. Unfortunately I think I'm going to have to make do with the toaster version since I'm pretty sure I threw away my waffle iron in frustration the fiftieth time my waffle stuck to both sides of it and wasn't edible. sigh. I am waffle-challenged.

  2. The secret for me is to brush my waffle iron with melted shortening, then heat and pour on batter. No sticking. I have thrown away my share of waffle irons before discovering this. DO NOT use spray. Thrift stores are great places to find waffle irons.

  3. Great recipe and great advice for a no-stick waffle. I always hate that.

  4. you are so smart! one of the worst cooking mistakes to make is spraying anything non stick with pam! it ruins the non stick finish. i ruined many pans before i figured this out.

  5. I never knew that about non-cooking sprays ruining surfaces. Wow! What a learning waffles & why my pans died at such a young age!...:)JP

  6. Now, I'm craving waffles. They sound so good. I like the tips about the waffle iron. Thanks

  7. My dad used to make waffles for us. One of the best Sunday night suppers ever. Your recipes can bring back such good memories.

    I'm glad you're having good weather. We're having a downpour today. Ugh.
