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?)
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.
Easy Homemade Oreo Ice Cream
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.
Paula’s Party Potion
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.)
Paula’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.
Oatmeal 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!
Sweet 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!
Creamy 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!

Paula, I used to watch your show on Food Network a lot when I still had the TV and cable many year ago. You weren't even that big a star back then. I always love watching you cook on Youtube after I ditched my TV and cable and read your recipes on Food Network Magazines. I hope one day you can return to Food Network and the Food Network Magazine. I stop buying the magazine since you were gone.
