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

Spoon Bread Souffle'

I know I have another Spoon Bread recipe posted but it seems most recipe will feed a small army, and are therefore reserved for holidays or company. You should be able to have Spoon Bread whenever the mood strikes. This one is perfect, and wonderful with ham. In the summer I could have this and a big fresh from the garden tomato and call it supper for one. Don't forget lots of butter!

Serves 4-6
print recipe

1/2 cup corn meal
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1 pint milk
4 eggs, separated
1 tablespoon butter

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix meal, sugar, salt and 1 tablespoon butter in double boiler over boiling water. Add milk and cook, stirring, to mushy consistency. Drip in yolks, one at a time and whip. Beat whites until stiff. Fox mixtures together. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in baking dish, pour in mixture and bake for 20 minutes. Serve immediately, with lots of butter if desired. I desire!


  1. I love spoon bread as well,, mu hips shows this fact!

  2. Hmmm, I've never had spoon bread. I'll make you a deal - you send me some spoon bread and I'll send you some strawberry jam!

  3. I do love spoon bread. I'll try your recipe. My usual is from Joy of Cooking, my cooking "Bible"

  4. I don't think I've ever had spoon bread either, and we've been thinking our cornbread is about the boring-est thing around. I'm going to try to remember to try this instead of cornbread next time. This sounds much better
