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

Pecan-Goat Cheese Truffles

What is it with me and goat cheese lately! It seems everything I make has goat cheese attached in some way. Maybe because goat cheese has about 80 calories and 6 grams of fat per ounce, compared to cow's milk cheese. which has 100 calories and 10 grams of fat. Or, people who are lactose intolerant can often enjoy goat cheese because it's easy to digest. I think it's because its just plain good.

Are you looking for a great little snack or something to add to your Derby Party tables that is a little off the norm. This could be it!

This is one of those make as much or little as you want or need recipes.

Stir together equal amounts of goat cheese and cream cheese, stir in minced sweetened cranberries and salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste. Shape by rounded teaspoons into balls; roll in chopped toasted pecans.

Watch these little yummies disappear!

  5. I enjoy goat cheese, it is indeed light and has just the right tangy-ness* to it!
