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

Kentucky Derby Suggestions

Have you started your Kentucky Burgoo for Derby day? Today is a good day to start because it doesn't have to be made all in one day. And as most soups and stews the flavor only gets better after setting for a few days. Not that you will have any left overs, but if you do this freezes beautifully.

Did you make the Henry Bain Sauce? If so add a cup or so to the burgoo.

If you are looking for more Kentucky Derby recipes, type in Kentucky Derby on the sidebar. Don't forget your Mint Juleps.


  1. Mint Juleps was the only thing I understood. Haha! Can you tell I'm not from Kentucky? :)

  2. The Mint Juleps are a go! I have the Makers Mark at the ready....
