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!

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.

Thanks it's for Basson-Mommy (yeah sorry, if I misspelled your name) though.

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!
