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

Veggie Ranch Wraps

There is something about making wraps that I love. Maybe it's because you can make them from any ingredients you have on hand. This one is especially refreshing for summer. If there is someone in your house that absolutely has to have meat, a couple of thin slices of turkey would make them happy.

Veggie Ranch Wraps
4 servings
print recipe

4 (6-inch) spinach tortillas, or your favorite
3/4 cup roasted vegetable-ranch dip
1/2 cup packed baby spinach
1 ripe avocado
1 tablespoon lime juice
1/2 cup roasted red bell pepper, sliced - the ones you canned last summer are great
Spread each tortilla with 3 tablespoons roasted vegetable dip. Layer with spinach.

Slice avocado, and toss with lime juice to prevent browning. Place avocado and red bell pepper slices along bottom edges of tortillas. Roll tightly, cover with plastic, and chill until ready to serve.


  1. what i roasted vegetable-ranch dip? since i don't have a garden, i might need to go to the store for ingredients. or i could jump over my fence into my neighbors garden, grab some veggies and hop right back over here. sorry, i am on my second glass of iced coffee and feeling like superman!

  2. This will be lunch my first week back to work!

  3. Sounds like a winner to me! Thanks Beverly :-)
