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

Royal Wedding - Chicken and Rice Salad

Sorry, this is the recipe my computer ate earlier. Could have been operator error. This is said to be served in an up coming royal wedding luncheon. I'm so excited, and will watch every minute of it. This is adapted from a dish served when the Queen of England was crowned in 1953. I'm also linking to Full Plate Thursday at Miz Helen's Country Cottage. Come join us.
