The other week my wonderful magazine team came to Savannah to shoot magazine covers for our holiday issues. We had a blast, y’all! What’s better than Christmas? Dressing up, spending time with your family, and pretending it’s Christmas!

What made this photo shoot extra special was that I got to pose with the sweetest, handsomest grandbabies in the whole world. It was such a hoot. Jugglin’ those three bundles of love is no easy task, y’all. Henry and Matthew were wriggling all over the place. I just had to share this behind-the-scenes video with all of you!

Watch the video for yourself and check out all the fun we had!

Make sure to subscribe to Cooking with Paula Deen Magazine for more holiday fun!

It's so great to see what a great time you had putting this all together, enjoying the little ones, that are just so precious to you. It was pretty cool too to see a glimpse of Ms. Courtney, the young lady that did my hair and make-up in New York City for the Rachael Ray Show! She is amazing. Happy Holidays!!! Great cooking times coming right up!!

I just wanted to say that I have always been an admire of you from how you got all of this started. I always thought you were such a beautiful woman with a soul to match. I think I bonded with you so much cause my grandmother that I worshiped was from the south and from the time I could pull a chair over she had me in the kitchen teaching me we baked a lot together. So thats a tradition I carry on it's my go too when I am sad, stressed or just to do something nice for someone else. I always wanted to have my own bakery but that's ok I still do it from the heart for others. Just wanted to let you know that you truly one of a kind and I love the new cover. Keep on being the beautiful soul your are. you look amazing these days by the way.. Love ya & have a very blessed day. Tina

Hi Paula, Oh my, how adorable are your grandsons. I miss seeing little Jack so much on Jamie's new show. I hope Season 2 starts taping soon, cause I'm having withdrawals from missing Jack. His dancing moves are just too cute, and he is sooo funny. I get the biggest kick out of him. and Paula, you look unbelievably great! You are the happiest woman on the planet; it shows all over your pretty face. Keep up the good work Paula, it's working!!!

I'm so glad to see how much weight you've lost and looking so great. I'm borderline diabetic so it is refreshing to see you slimming down and so can I. I like Bobby's show also for that reason. Keep up the good work and I'm happy for you and Michael. You look like a very happy couple. Bless you and your family.

LOVE LOVE LOVE the Christmas video of Paula with her grandsons'. If she feels anything like she looks since she has drop some weight WATCH OUT WORLD. She's gonna be one hot cook to handle along with more laughter than one can endure which I already do. I love watching her. She inspires me more every day to be a better cook. THANKS PAULA FOR THE LAUGHTER & SOMETIMES THE TEARS YOU SHARE WITH US.

Just curious - I am used to seeing Jamie's two boys because I watch his new cooking show. Who is the third grandchild on the magazine Christmas cover? I have never seen him before and am wondering if he is one of Michael's children's babies? Who ever he belongs to he is adorable so he definitely fits right in with the other two boys. They are all three so beautiful - but then they are what Christmas is all about when you get away from the religious part of it. Happy Holidays - The McGowan Family of Sahuarita Arizona

Dear Paula, First of all, you look fantastic! I have been dealing with diabetes for several years. When I first found out, I made up my mind that I would overcome this disease. I did, and lost 65 pounds, looked and felt great about myself and the battle that I won. Sorry to say that did not last and I failed at my battle. I felt good, so I thought I could just eat a little of that "southern food" and it would be ok. I have now gained most of the weight back and I am experiencing more medical problems. To one grits loving gal to another, HELP! Do you have a new cookbook that I can get to help with cooking southern and still staying on our "diet". I am not on insulin but oral medications. I have got to get it together, again. Thanks, Gayle

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!!
