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

Pan-Roasted Sausage with Apples, Onions and Sage

Does this sound like winter food! I even cut some turnips into thin wedges and added them. Beautifully seared meat that's perfectly cooked is called pan roasting, and it's foolproof.

Remember to use a heavy oven-proof skillet and have your meat at least an inch thick for perfect oven roasting.
