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

I'm so excited! I actually got a half bushel of tomatoes today. Everything is so late this year. They are beautiful. The first thing I'm going to make is a wonderful Tomato Chili Sauce. I can't give you the recipe yet because I haven't made it for 25 years. I lost the recipe. But I'll tell you the whole story next week. I did take two tomatoes out to make this great recipe.
