First of all, I would like to comment on how I just love the way you are such an inspiration to your boys!! My son has become quite a cook and has a passion for BBQ competitions, which he has done very well at, I might add! He says he never would have done it if it weren't for the encouragement he got from me growing up around my love for pleasing people with my cooking.........I just purchased "The Deen Brothers Cookbook--Recipes from the Road" for him to add to his collection of many. I'm sure he will be very pleased to get it, after reading it cover to cover, he is lucky I am sending it as I debated keeping it for myself!! FANTASTIC recipes!! So, as far as food for the beach, I believe it would have to chopped olives and cream cheese with a spring salad mix rolled into either a spinach or a sun-dried tomato tortilla accompanied by chilled melon, grapes and some orange sections. A tidy, quick and easy snack! I would love to read the new book you are speaking of.....what better way to spend a relaxing afternoon (or anytime!) my second favorite thing to do other than cooking!! We adore you, Ms. Paula!! Much Love and Light, Judith

I love a Diet Coke with lots of ice at the beach. Some trail mix to go with it and any Mary Kay Andrews book makes for a perfect beach day!

The tomato with basil (and fresh mozarella) are a winner and perfect to handle at the beach - no mess, no fuss, and delicious! I'm switching from Ham & Swiss!

Paula, I am glad to know that I am not the only person who makes Easter Baskets for their adult children and mail them across the United States. My Daughter lives in Long Beach, CA and I not only sent her a basket but her husband and my granddaughter Reese. We also buy special Russel Stover Bunnies for each child too. My husband has the list in his phone... Sara .. Cookies 'n Crème.... Sidney and Stephen.. Peanut Butter Etc. It one of my favorite things to do for my kids.. no matter how old they get. And passing it along to my Grandchildren. It's even more special to me knowing we share a family tradition. Blessings and Happy Easter!!
