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

Happy Labor Day!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful long weekend. I basically did nothing on Sunday and am planning the same for today. I have canned, frozen or dehydrated something every day since the middle of May. Excluding Sundays of course. There is a reason it's called Labor Day, and it isn't to labor in the kitchen all day. Keep it simple, burgers, ribs, or hot dogs.

If you live in my area you will not have to worry about rain. They have been saying major rain for days. To my knowledge I believe it's been about 15 drops.

If you are looking for a killer potato recipe check out Joyce's Potatoes With Celery Sauce. This is the best thing I've had in a long time.

Hopefully by tomorrow I'll be back in the mood for my "labor of love" canning. If not I have plenty for the neighborhood already.


  1. i just made more of this yesterday. it is downright addictive. taking a day off today? you lazy lazy woman!!! haha!

  2. Happy Labor Day to you, Beverly!

  3. Do they still have everyone at Old Union wear their "work clothes" to church on Labor Day Sunday? I was thinking about that yesterday - it was always one my favorite Sundays and there was always a larger than usual turnout :)

  4. happy labor day to you my friend,
