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

Red Pepper Chutney

My do nothing Labor Day just didn't happen, well not until about 3:00 in the afternoon. There is always something to do this time of year. I'll rest in the winter when it's too cold to be out.

I know I've been on a chutney kick, but this is sooo good and so easy a monkey could make it. This is what I'm making today. I would eat this on anything, plus what a beautiful hostess gift.

Makes 3 pints
