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

Expresso Steak Rub

It seems everyone has a coffee steak rub lately. I happen to like this one because of the espresso beans. I use fresh ginger if I'm only making what I'll use at the time. Ground ginger is fine if you are making a lot of this to store for future use.
