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

Asparagus Sesame Salad

Asparagus season is here! I could eat asparagus 3 times a day this time of year. The wonderful thing about this salad is it can be served warm or cold. Speaking of cold, what happen to spring! It is 32 degrees here this morning.

I'm linking this to Carole's Chatter - Food on Friday. Let's go visit!

Asparagus Sesame Salad

1 1/2 pounds fresh asparagus, cut into 2-inch pieces
