It makes me so glad that y’all have taken to my lighter recipes so much. With the holidays right around the corner, I thought that I’d put together a special Thanksgiving menu together full of some of my mama’s famous recipes that I’ve lightened up. Help yourself to my lighter side dishes and desserts without sacrificing any of my mom’s classic flavors. Now you’ve got no excuse not to go back for seconds!

Bobby, are you still single? If you are, there is someone in Northeastern Ohio that is interested in you.... and your momma (just to give her a BIG hug!!!) I have been inspired by your mom and her story! She is amazing and has given me the courage to create a story of my own! I am a single mother working my way through school to be a dietician to support my family! I want to help others find freedom in healthy lifestyles without compromising flavor! I can't wait to try some of your recipes!!! With kind regards, Dawn Vaughan that single girl from Northeastern Ohio smile

I LOVE mac& cheese,but being a typw2 diabetic I can’t eat it that much if any, without sending my sugar high. But this recipe is lower in carbs and no one in my family knew the difference,and my sugar stayed in check too. Thank you

Paula, I love watching you and your family. I miss seeing your show, I watched you everyday. My son lives in Charleston S.C. He took me to the Lady & Sons to eat. Oh my goodness! People are always telling me that I look just like the cooking lady Paula Deen. I always tell them that you are my hero. May God Bless You Mary Ann

Add a few spoonfuls of parmesan cheese to the flour and cornmeal breading and it kicks the tomatoes up another notch. Bev

I just bought Paula's Peach Salad Dressing and wondered if anyone has a good recipe that they use it in?

Congrats Bobby. Loved the family picture miss you Paula on TV will be watching online. Jack is getting big. Looks like his mom but Matt aka moose has your face. Your eyes cheeks hair even falls to his face like yours except to the left. Good luck on your next venture. You give us other 60+ yr women strength to move on. Keep up the good work.
