A bone in roast will cook faster than a boneless roast because the bone conducts heat.

A Delicious Life

A Delicious Life

How sweet it is living with Paula Deen

“She invited me to come in, which I did. It was a little awkward. I think we both felt we needed an icebreaker, and then

Paula showed me these crazy little books she had on the table. They were called ‘What if?’ books and they asked you

questions like ‘What if you had to spend a year on a deserted island, what would you take with you?’ Paula said she’d take

a potato plant. I said I would take a boat so I could come get her and her potato plant and get us all home.”

From My Delicious Life with Paula Deen, published by Simon & Schuster, © 2009

If you spend just a minute around Paula’s husband Michael, you will know that his head is full of wit and wisdom…and his heart is full of gold. His job as a Docking Pilot is precise and exacting work where the stakes are high. One mistake can seriously damage the vessel, the dock or the people aboard.  No wonder when he is ashore, the silly side comes out!

In his new book, My Delicious Life with Paula Deen, Michael tells all.  From his idyllic Southern childhood to meeting the love of his life, Paula. He speaks frankly about the trials and triumphs of blending families, the children he cherishes and the pleasures and difficulties of fame. Written in such a seamless way, you will be hooked after just a few sentences. Each chapter begins with a silly joke and the bonus…RECIPES! The book is filled with a dozen of Michael’s favorite seaworthy recipes like this one, Sailor’s Sausage-Stuffed Pork! Paula says absolutely no one can cook up a pot of beans as good as Michael Groover. 

In honor of Captain Michael and his bride, this week’s homepage is devoted to some of the things he and Paula love. For him it’s COOKIES! For Paula, it’s the the beautiful milk glass she finds during her junkin’ expeditions around Savannah. The perfect match…Milk and Cookies!

The Food Section is a buzz with delicious new content. Jonathan, the witty office manager of Paula Deen Enterprises can barely keep up responding to all the positive comments. If you haven’t seen Jamie’s How To Videos, or taken a peek at a little lighter recipe from Bobby in Bobby Lightens It Up, please do. Paula’s goal is to keep you coming back to her home for all your cooking questions, inspiration and of course a whole lot of big smiling fun.

I lost my husband of 47 yrs early part of 2009, recently I met A man that won over my heart which I thought
would never ever happen. I married my beloved husband when I was 18 and met him when I was 15 yrs old.I wrote a memorial for my late husband on a webste called classmates.com. Surprisingly, this wonderful man contacted me , he was from our hometown and we knew many of the same people. He told me he wanted to meet a lady that would love her husband so completely. P.S.  This contact grew into a beautiful, new love for both of us. We have been going together for a year and now we are getting closer to a total commitment.God is good and yes, “Love is wonderful the second time around”, at any age. Many wonderful healthy love filled years to you both.

Paula, I just got done reading your book that my daughter bought me while at your restuarant this summer. I laughed so much reading it, and it seemed like you were their telling me the story yourself.  Can’t wait to read this one.  P.S. went to your restuarant 2 summers ago and loved it plan to go again next summer.
