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

Pears With Dark Chocolate

It seemed our summer pears were late this year. Or maybe I'm late getting to them. I should have pick pears yesterday but I'm taking a canning rest. I'll go today. I think all my neighbors have pear trees.

This dessert is so quick and easy you can have it any night of the week. It is also delicious served over vanilla frozen yogurt.

Serves 4
