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

Pasta and Salmon and Peas

Just had to post this wonderful salmon recipe for my blogging friend Ina in Alaska. I don't make this often because my salmon is not exactly fresh caught like Ina's. It works well with frozen, and I have used a 10 ounce package of frozen peas instead of fresh. Ina if you make this think of me while you are enjoying all this goodness.

Serves 6
print recipe

1/4 pound unsalted butter
1 clove garlic
1 pound salmon steak, skinned, boned, and cut into 1-inch cubes
Salt to taste
1 pound fresh peas, shelled and cooked
1/3 cup chopped parsley
1 pound pasta shells, ziti, or penne
Freshly ground pepper
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

In a large skillet, melt the butter. Add the garlic and the salmon. Stir gently. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until just done. Add the salt, peas, and parsley. Cook, stirring, for 1 minute

Cook the pasta until it is al dente according to package directions. Drain. Add to the salmon mixture. Add the pepper and lemon juice. Serve hot.
