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

Grilled Pork Tenderloin With Orange Marmalade

Are you looking for something a little different for this week end. Maybe instead of the burgers, dogs, chicken and steak, or in addition too. You will love this. I promise. This is from Southern Livings top 500 recipes and well deserves the honor. Don't forget to check the various substitutes for the orange marmalade. The japapeno pepper jelly is fabulous.

Wonderful with sauteed Brussels sprouts, or green vegetable of your choice. I picked up fresh broccoli from my wonderful produce boyfriend, Dave, today.

I'll also be linking this to Full Plate Thursday@ Miz Helen's Country Cottage today.
