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

  1. oh my gosh, I will really have to give this a go, I just know your recipe will be a winner.I would never ever use a bought crust for this, homemade all the way!
    ( I have never used a store bought crust), I can't understand people buying them when homemade is so much better,

  2. Goodness, Bev...this sounds soooo good! Do you think it would help me loose the "muffin" I've developed over the winter months?...:)JP

  3. i never thought about adding walnuts to pecan pie but why not? the more nuts, the better!

  4. This sounds absolutely delicious! At ANYTIME!:)

  5. Oh my, I could kill myself on this! I shouldn't read you or Jaz when I'm hungry!
