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

Yellow Summer Squash Casserole

I am one to cook whatever is in season, and now it's yellow squash. Even people who think that don't like summer squash will love this casserole, even kids. I make this often during the summer because it's great with everything.
