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

This is sooo good! Fast fixin's-make ahead! You can use this on everything from hamburgers to celery sticks, not to mention it makes a fabulous grilled cheese sandwich. Perfect to have on hand for this long weekend.

1 1/4 cups good mayonnaise
1/2 (12-ounce) jar roasted red bell peppers, drained and chopped, home canned if you have them

2 teaspoons coarse-ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 (10-ounce) blocks sharp white Cheddar cheese, shredded - shred your own
