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

Wild Rice Tuna Salad

What a wonderful salad this is! It could be my favorite for the summer, we'll see. Quick and easy and can be made well ahead. Don't forget the alfalfa sprouts, I know I'm showing them as optional, but I think they make the salad.
