And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Paula Deen

I'm reading her memoir and I'm loving it.  She's so comforting and honest and open and she includes recipes that I can't wait to try.  I was surprised to learn that she got her show after 9/ll because everyone wanted to feel safe in their mom's kitchen.  Ironically, she's had a lot of anxiety problems herself, but her conquering them is very inspiring.

Re: Paula Deen

I've been making a recipe a day from her book and they are fabulous.  Horribly unhealthy but really yummy!

Re: Paula Deen

I do not have paula's cookbook but would love to have it. If I could only stop buying fiction books. I have the big plaid Homes and gardens cookbook and its not the newest one. ha. Its really old and stained galore!

But I do not care when I need to know something!

Re: Paula Deen

I am only 13, but I love to cook. Her food is delicious. I have her cookbook for kids and I tried her egg salad and everyone loved it. I have also tried a recipe for macaroni and cheese. Big hit!

Re: Paula Deen

Paula's Tomato Pie is a must have dish when tomatoes are at their peak in the summer.  It is so delicious!

Re: Paula Deen

Favor:  Could someone "Add Product" for her first book?  I will also try to figure out which one that is, but my 3-year-old daughter is absolutely gaga for tomatoes and I think this tomato pie sounds very interesting.

 

Thanks!

Re: Paula Deen

TiggerBear,

 

Here's a shortcut to the recipe on FoodTV.com.

 

I am not sure which book it is in, but in the meantime I thought that might help. Looks like an extraordinarily simple, very tasty recipe.

Re: Paula Deen

I saw Paula prepare the Tomato Pie on her show and I thought it looked wonderful. I hurried to my computer and grabbed the recipe. Now I just have to wait for the tomatos next summer and I'm going to give the recipe a try!
