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

Pesto Bread

I know some of you were laughing your butt off the other day when I posted the Collard Green Pesto recipe. Now you will have to use the store bought pesto and I will be enjoying this bread made with the Collard Green Pesto. Don't ever under estimate and old southern woman.

Makes 1 loaf
print recipe

1 stick butter, softened
1/2 cup good mayonnaise
3 garlic cloves, crushed
2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
3 tablespoons your favorite brand of pesto sauce because you don't have mine
1 loaf French or Italian Bread, homemade is best, but bakery is fine

Preheat grill to medium. Cut the bread into 1-inch slices without slicing completely through the bottom crust. Mix the first 5 ingredients and blend well. Spread on both sides of the bread slices. Wrap in foil and place on the edge of the grill. Grill, turning occasionally, about 10-15 minutes. Don't burn the bread.


  1. Mmmmm....this sounds so good. i wish i had some for breakfast!

  2. I never laugh at your recipes, you are too good at what you do, I trust your judgement although you do have a good sense of humor so one never knows, you might just try tricking us, ha ha, sounds wonderful though and i'm hungry as well!

  3. Thawing the last of last summer's pesto to make this with BBQ chicken this evening :)
