Happy birthday, y’all! Throwing a birthday bash and not sure what to fix for all of the guests? Relax! That’s what we’re here for. We’ve wrapped all of Paula’s best birthday recipes up in a pretty little bow for you. Don’t worry, you don’t have to thanks us. (Maybe just save us a slice of cake. Deal?)

Enjoy!

Ooey Gooey Butter Layer Cake
What’s a birthday without cake? It’s like peanut butter without jelly, or macaroni without cheese. You get the idea! Delicious butter filling is layered between sweet sheets of cake to a birthday cake you won’t soon forget.

We know that we’ve said things were easy in the past, but this time we mean it y’all. Whip up all the ingredients, pour them in a loaf pan, freeze away! Scoop with a slice of cake for a true birthday tradition.

Need way say more? Here’s a punch that’s made with a party in mind! Yummy fruit juices and fizzy ginger ale come together to make a very sip-worthy punch, indeed. (For those throwing adult birthday parties, you can even add a little of your favorite alcohol.)

imagePaula’s Party Popcorn
You may be sensing a theme by now! Grab a bowl of some freshed popped popcorn and share away with your guests. You won’t believe this recipe is only five ingredients.

imageOatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
While your guests are busy playing games or mingling with each other, why not let them munch on some cookies while they wait for the main event? Be careful though, these cookies will go fast. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

imageSweet and Mild Meatball Appetizers
For a savory approach to finger foods, whip up a batch of these individually served meatballs. They’re ready in only about 30 minutes, so you don’t have an excuse not to!

imageCreamy Scallion Dip
Of course we can’t forget our vegetables! Set out a tray or two of freshly cut, bite-sized veggies and a bowl of Paula’s creamy scallion dip. Even picky eaters won’t be able to resist!

I have fixed alot of Paula's recipes and they all have been fabulous but the two that are my favorites are the Lady and Sons Lasagna and the Not Yo Mama's Banana Pudding. They both are to die for. Her Baked Spaghetti recipe has gotten my alot of compliments, too. I always say, "It's a Paula Deen Recipe". Thanks Paula.

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!!
