My new cookbook, At the Southern Table with Paula Deen, goes on sale September 26th, and I am so excited to give you a sneak peek: My two biggest passions in life are my family and good old-fashioned, down-home Southern cooking. I’m fortunate to have been blessed with an abundance of both.
I loved my own Grandparents with all my heart. I learned important lessons from them about how to treat people, how to cook, and how to work. They didn’t have to lecture or fuss at me; they showered us kids with love and left the parenting to Mama and Daddy.
