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

Saint and Scriptures Sunday

Happy Memorial Weekend to everyone! Hope you are enjoying family, friends and lots of good food. But, we need to remember the reason for the holiday. Our prayers should be with all the men and women of our armed services. As long as we have one soldier fighting on foreign soil we should pray for them and their families and fly our flag to honor them.

Today is Pentecost Sunday - Don't forget to wear something red to church today

John 20:19-23
From The Message

Later on that day, the disciples had gathered together, but, fearful of the Jews, had locked all the doors in the house, Jesus entered, stood among them, and said, "Peace to you". Then he showed them his hands and side.

The disciples, seeing the Master with their own eyes,, were exuberant. Jesus repeated his greeting: "Peace to you. Just as the Father sent me, I send you."

The he took a deep breath and breathed into them. "Receive the Holy Spirit," he said. "If you forgive someone's sins, they're gone for good. If you don't forgive sins, what are you going to do with them?"

Have a Blessed week and stay cool.

  4. Hi Bev, Thanks for the loving tribute to all our warriors. We will continue to pray for them and America daily. Yes, Pentecost Sunday means wearing red and we are ready to do just that. The rest of our weekend will be spent in Peace and quiet as Kyle our 6 year old grandson, our daughter Pam and sil Jim, just left to return to home in Aliso Viejo, only 2 hours away, where Kyle has a friend's Birthday party to attend. Actually, it is too quiet ... waaa!

    Anyways, much Peace and Blessings to our Warriors and All of America.
