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

Oranges in Grand Marnier

Finding an old recipe is better than finding an old friend. When I found this the other day I forgot what I was really looking for. This is the most perfect thing to have on hand for a quick and elegant dessert. Served over ice cream or pound cake it is heavenly. The oranges will maintain their sunny appearance for months, if you can stay out of them that long.

Yield: 1 quart
print recipe

3 or 4 oranges, sliced, don't peel them
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup Grand Marnier

Pack orange slices into a 1-quart jar. Set aside

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan; bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil 1 minute; remove from heat.

Stir in liqueur, and pour over orange slices. Cover tightly, and store in refrigerator up to 2 months.


  1. Yummy! I have oranges in the fridge that I was hoping to turn into marmalade but these sound even better! xo
