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

Could Be Randy's Favorite Recipe

My sweet nephew, Randy will be moving to his new mini-farm in a few weeks and I will only be cooking for him a couple of times a week, I hope. Twelve miles in a long way to drive for a five course meal everyday. Edie and his dad gave him a red crock pot for Christmas so he would have dinner waiting when he came in from work. Providing he put something in it before he left home. Plus a huge cookbook for crock pot cooking. He was a little overwhelmed with the cookbook. He will be fine after he overcomes his fear of words like, saute', thyme, rosemary, etc.

He has ask me to put together a few of his favorite recipes that he enjoys now suitable for crock pot cooking. I'm happy to do that. However to get him started I thought I should start with an appliance he is familiar with, the microwave. How does this sound?

Pork and Beans
serves 1
no printed recipe required

1 tin of Pork and Beans
1 fork
1 plate
2 slices buttered bread

Open tin, place contents on plate. Cover lightly with Saran Wrap. Heat in microwave for 2 minutes. While heating, butter bread. Enjoy.

Randy can prepare this tasty dish all by himself. He can even slice and add a hot dog later as he becomes more proficient in the kitchen.


  1. You crack me up! I should have known something was up when you called Randy "sweet". He can be many things, but I don't think "sweet" makes the top ten. Oh, well, he lived on canned ravioli and Little Debbie Cakes for years, so he'll get by ;)

  2. lol This is my son's favorite meal to prepare for himself!
