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

Sicilian Stuffed Tomatoes

I'm making tomatoes every way I can think of before they are gone for another year. Stop thinking about the anchovies. You will never know they are there except for the wonderful nutty flavor they give.

Let's take a look and see what else Miz Helen's Country Cottage - Full Plate Thursday has today.

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
